It was pretty sentimental..I always used to think the guava fruits from that tree were the best.. though the reality it was no where sweet and even squirrels ignored it :). Yet since it was sown n watered by me those guavas were the best in the world :)

Nautankey said...

swarna,
Welcome!! haan have tagged you :) many got jittery seeign the 150 lines,though its just like coloring the things u had done. So was not too sure about folks liking this tag...

Nautankey said...

Ruth,
Ireland,wow beautiful place. Few years back there was this agitation where tribal women tied rakhi[thread tied by sis for her bro] to trees in forest which were to be cleared for some govt. construction ...was very moving.

Nautankey said...

Bhargavi,
Blogroll has been like that from day one :P..burugundy was not too visible either..but subtlety is better for guys.

The important author I cant name it here,my image[watever was there] will get a beating :P. If the first date was in a pub that does happen :D..and my uncle had a dairy farm so milking cow was not an outlandish one,

Have tagged you..need some company in the club u see

Prasad said...

who the kiss!!! explain in detail!

Ruth said...

Ohhh, even sweeter yet. I've heard about rakhi, and that is just awesome!

When I hugged a tree in Ireland, it felt that she was my mother. Is that weird? I went back and visited her two more years.
