Andhra Moment

Yesterday I had my first Andhra Moment. I had just reached Secunderabad Station from Lucknow. My friend Abhinav Rao had come to pick me up. I was on the over-bridge when I spotted him standing on the crowded platform. With the excitement that comes from meeting a friend after a 29-hour train journey, I shouted, “Rao!” Rao did not hear me, but twenty other people, doubtless also called Rao, looked up enquiringly.

try the ice-creams of Famous Ice Creams at old city. you won't regret it. also try old city in general, preferably at night. it shines then.

Hmmm... I wonder if something similar would happen if you get down at the Lhasa airport and shout "Tsering!!!"

Or for that matter, "Jean!!!" in Paris.

Or "Dick!" in NY.

Okay the last was just a cheap shot. But the other two make sense, right??
