    Hello there. 🙂

    Thanks for dropping by my wordpress account. I did have a nice experience with WP but I got more interested with Blogger so I’m inviting you over to my new site address:

    I can’t get over you saying that I have an interesting blog. Thanks for making me happy.

    By the way, that’s such a lovely view. It looks like a hot day though wasn’t it? The Philippines have a very hot summer too but I heard some parts of India could get even hotter. 🙂

    Anyway, I’ll sure keep track of your lovely blog. 🙂


  5. Such pretty photos!

    Dear Dilip Sir,

    Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures of Amaltas and thereby ensuring that we have a ‘golden shower’ on a sweltering summer day! We had to create the time ‘to turn at Beauty’s glance’ and ‘to stand and stare’ at God’s Grandeur.

    Thanks and regards,
