Dear Sandhyaji,

Your line at the end – “Enjoyed doing it, Sai!” gave me a big smile :)

Yes, tagging is simply a “test of patience”, it does take lot of time and I’m glad you liked the “Times Four tag”.

My gratitude for your friendly gesture Sandhyaji - yes, for accepting my request straight away and done the tag right away :) Even Kavitaji did the same, thanks to her too :)

Feels nice to read more about your life through this post.

I love delicious fresh coconut chutney and hot tasty Saambaar with - idly, medu vadai, dosai, pongal and uthappam.

I tasted keerai mor kottu only once as prasadam at a Krsna temple.

The kitten family is really cute, I visited the older post and it was a nice read - “Nandu, Sindu and Vandu” pretty names :) you call them as silk bundles... ha ha...

Like you, I’m a fan of Kamal and for his acting skills all his movies can be watched many times.

Pushpak is one such a good silent humourous movie and can be watched repeatedly.

Gods must be crazy, Part - II has hilarious entertainment, I like it too.

Hmm, Coorg and Kashmir – places full of nature's best beauty...

So, you wanna spend time with elephants and deer... ha ha :)

I like both - John Grisham's novel ‘The Firm’ and also the movie based on it.


Sandhya said...

hitchwriter: YES!!

Coorg is a beautiful place and not very hot also. And Coorg women are famous for their beauty!

kavita: Yes, tagging is a beautiful way of knowing about friends.

Sandhya said...

Sai: Thank you, Sai

Smitha said...

Great List!

And you have made me drool with the food listed here..

Iddly with chutney and saambaar - I miss it so :( My batter is just not getting fermented here :(

Sandhya said...

Smitha: My niece was keeping the batter in the oven with the warmer on!

Did you read my 'kittens' post?

Anonymous said...

lemme clarify ... I want to go there coz of its beauty... I have heard a lot..

Now one more reason to go to coorg !!! ;)

Sandhya said...

hitchwriter: Yeaaaaaaaaaah!!

Saritha said...

Great reading sandhya :)

Even i love pushpak,slient movie of kamalhassan right

I also watch walk the talk on ndtv

In a zoo with elephants & deers (caretaker?!)--- u love animals?

Many tags are pending at my end,today did one tag and this is also pending will do it shortly :)

Sandhya said...

varunavi: Yes, Kamal's movie - silent movie and it doesn't look like a silent movie at all. Whenever I see it, I find something new which had not caught my eye earlier.

My whole family loves them. Click on the cats' photo and you will read about our cats!

If I write impulsively, I write fast and better. Planning and writing is needed for the tag. Some tags are done half way and I didn't like them. I feel bad for not respecting the bloggers' wishes, but get nervous and feel it is boring to read - my writings.

Did the murukku come out well?! Your daughters would have told you!

R. Ramesh said...

hi sandhya..

Shilpa said...

u like baadusha? Hmmm... u r the first person i know, who has ever said that.

Sandhya said...

Ramesh: I wish you had written some comment on this post!

Shilpa: Yes, because sugar taste is less in this sweet!

Urmi said...

Thanks for your lovely comment.
I liked your post.Its very nice and also quite different.I love to eat different types of food and also like to watch movies.Good to know more.

I left a comment!:(((

will write it again:)))

PS:- Sandhya shift to WP na!:)))

Sandhya said...

Indyeah: Problem? Sorry.

kanagu said...

/*Baadusha (sweet!)*/

this is the only sweet I hate to eat.. :(

and I am noting down all the novels... will help me when I am searching for good ones :)

Sandhyaji, a small request... can you please remove this word verification??

Sandhya said...

kanagu: Badushaa is not very sweet, the reason I like it! Sometimes, it tastes like ordinary biscuit, when I prepare it at home. No one likes sweets in my family, now!

Most of the books of the authors, I have mentioned are very good books, Kanagu. I guarantee you!

loved reading the tag,Sandhya..first time here and it was nice knowing you better :)

Pushpak will always be a cult movie for me too...I loved Khubsoorat too simply because of the freshness it oozed.

SaReGaMa hosted by Sonu Nigam's was a treat to watch...I'm with you on this

You've been to Coorg??...WOW!thats one place I'm yearning to go

Thanks for sharing :)

Sandhya said...

deepsspeakingup: Hi, welcome here. Happy to know that you like Pushpak!

Yes, Coorg is a beautiful place to visit for the holidays. Nice meeting you.

manju said...

Nicely done tag, Sandhya. It's good to know more about you! :)

Did you enjoy the novel 'The Firm'? I am a John Grisham fan!

kanagu said...

This word verification in the comment section..

Sandhya said...

Manju: I have read, I think 4 or 5 books of his books - John Grisham's. And seen the movies 'the Firm', 'The client' (I loved Susan Sarandon in this movie), 'Pelican Brief (My favorite Julia roberts and Denzel Washington) etc. Normally, if we enjoy the book very much, we never like the movies. But the movies were equally good.

kanagu: I don't know why word verification is given here. May be in 'wordpress' they ask for email address also but in blogspot, no reference is asked. Even I am writing it for my own comment!

Solilo said...

I love Pushpak. I wonder why they never attempted another silent film like that.

I want to visit Coorg once.

I LOVE Idli-hot Sambhar.

Sandhya said...

Solilo: Have you noticed, the movie does not need dialogues at all! It was created like that. It is not easy to direct a film like that. Both Kamal and Amala were at their best in this movie.

My children love dosa! Idly,only for me and my husband!

Sandhya!! :(((

what is baadusha?:)

the four books are really good:))
will read them again..I think its been ages since i read them:)

Sandhya there was also another part in this tag..
four historical figures you would like to meet:)))

would love to know whom you would want to meet:))


Sandhya said...

Indyeah: Thanks for taking time to comment again, Abhi! Your comment means a lot to me.

When I have some youngsters and people of my age gather, I prefer to show this movie (Gods must be Crazy II), so that everyone will enjoy! The whole crowd loves it!

Badusha is made with maida and butter - in vada shape and dip in sugar syrup. I love this sweet and make it as a second sweet during Deepawali - at least alternate years!

This tag must have diluted somewhere. Sai's tag did not have it, but asked to write about 4 things I would like to do before I die! I skipped it because, the list might grow!

I will 'edit' and add your part! Thank you, Abhi.
