I received this great email from Srihari, who was one of the hard-working co-ordinators of this year’s Bird Race:
There is nothing that cannot be faced with a little humour, as this wonderful account by Dr Kishore Shah, a renowned Gynecologist practicing in Pune, proves. I got this as a forward…but it’s too good not to be documented!
For some time now, many of my “Tambram” friends who have ageing parents or relatives have been having major problems trying to get a brahmin cook…or, since they generally want to get women cooks…. in the parlance of old, “shamayalkAra mAmi”. Alas, I have not heard of a single instance where they have been successful.
Had a wonderful time at the Bangalore Bird Race 2011. When one has great birders and one indefatigable driver on one’s team….it’s easy!
