What a fabulous adventure! Your connection to Lakeside from your childhood makes it seem as if this was meant to be.
Yes Mona, I truly believe that this is where I was meant to end up at this stage in my life. It is a wonderful adventure and I’m so glad I had the courage to go out and do it rather than spending the rest of my life wondering ‘what if?’
Good for you!
Gotcha! I’ve nominated you for the Lovely Blogger Award, drop in to my page http://crazytraintotinkytown.com/ for details – congrats!!!
Thank you so much, this is really appreciated from someone who has such a great blog! I check everyday to see if you have a new post!
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!
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!
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?
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!
very beautiful blog and images maam,
currently i’m in vellore, if i get time i will surely be coming to your Lakeside some day.
Thank you Naveen. We hope to meet you some day – I know you will love the opportunities for photography here!
Dorinda, you know I love your blog and all that you write. So please don’t be surprised to read that you’ve been nominated for a blog award:
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.
Thank you Peter. I wonder if ‘your’ space scientist is involved in the current project!
Awesome blog Dorinda. I am a poet from Chennai, currently working in marketing. Is your retreat available only for foreign travelers or even domestic travelers like me? Yes, I would want to experience it too 🙂
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.
good blog work
Hi, very pleased by your love towards India….happy to join your blog!
I must this is one of the most different blogs that I have come across. But I really liked the idea. The pictures of this place also look very good.
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.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sue Mullen. ( name was Hannacher when I visited)
