  1. Hi Dorinda. Thanks for your comment today. I also spent almost two years of my life in Tamil Nadu, and have visited Madurai. I was in Nilgiris district. i hope I might get there again some time. Yes – I’ll keep an eye on this blog – Love the images! Ian

  2. Hi Dorinda,

    I just nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award. I was nominated for it recently and youโ€™re one of my nominations at http://dmlbooks.wordpress.com/2012/01/29/the-versatile-blogger-award


    The rules of this nomination are as follows.

    1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
    2. Share 7 things about yourself.
    3. Pass this award along to 15 others.
    4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.


  3. I admire your courage to make Lakeside your home – it was so worth it, isn’t it? Next time I’m in India, maybe I’ll come and visit Lakeside (and get some chicken biriyani too!), but not when the temple festival is on. I love your photography – b e a u t i f u l!

    • Thank you.
      It has been awesome living at Lakeside – a move we have not regretted for one moment!
      I hope I can keep you interested in what is happening here, and also hope to meet you sometime!

      • Dorinda, I’m interested and just hit the ‘Follow’ button so I don’t forget Lakeside. Yes, I hope I meet you sometime. Stay well!

  4. Hi Dorinda: What a bold and wonderful adventure. Would you be so kind as to email me about the possibility of using one of your photographs in a cultural anthropology textbook I coauthor?

    • Hi Bunny,
      I would be happy for you to use a photo in your text book, an email is on its way to you.
      Do let me know more about the book as it sounds fascinating. For use in college I assume?
      I have always been interested in people/anthropology as you can probably see from my blog!

  5. I once shared a compartment on an Indian train with a space scientist from Delhi who had a contract with NASA to analyse the first rocks brought back from the moon – he had the samples with him. That was over 30 years ago!
    Is it any wonder that Indian scientists are now aiming for Mars?
    Dorinda is absolutely right with her analysis and we should share it with the ‘ let’s knock India brigade’
    A proud and self confident India is better placed to follow up its huge school projects with good sanitation and good nutrition for every child in every village in every state in India.

    • Hi Shriiram,
      You would be most welcome here and we would love to meet you. We have a great mix of foreign and domestic guests, all of whom seem to get on well together and have a great time!
      I look forward to meeting you sometime.

    I live in Belgium and many years ago Joe Homan came to our church to give a talk and I was so impressed that I got involved by sponsoring a child. My girl friend and I actually did a visit to South India organised by the charity and staying at Lakeside and going in to see the schools. It was all so impressive! I didn’t know Lakeside had been sold! I am sure you love it there! I will be going to Oxford in August with my husband to the 50th anniversary. Will you be going?
    My email is Ray.sue@skynet.be.

    Sue Mullen. ( name was Hannacher when I visited)
