      Being so far away from home, it is difficult to participate in all our festivities. The biggest drawback of staying away from the matrabhumi.

      Best Wishes to you,

  2. Happy Pongal Arun, M and m. The Ladoos look very tempting especially since I just got back from my aerobics class (from the gym at pitt).

    1. O Asha:
      Wishing you and your family a fabulous Sankranthi!

      Try your local desi grocery store – they may have these laddoos!

      And so fabulous to have you back!
