A Weekend Away

The SRE and I are leaving for a weekend in Delhi, early tomorrow morning. On the 6th December, a day that is sadly commemorated in Indian history as the day the Babri Masjid was destroyed.
This is also a day of high security alerts, and following the recent mayhem in Mumbai, I am personally willing to undergo the most stringent of security procedures if our safety is enhanced.
I have earlier left my parents alone over short weekend trips. This is the first time I will be leaving
them in the care of the home nurse. I think she is almost as nervous as I am!
My youngest is off on a trip to Chandipur-on-Sea with some friends.

I hope that all goes well on all fronts, both for the travellers and for those who stay at home.
The times are tough. Stay safe, everyone.

Oh for a Dilli winter! And on a completely tangential note, have you ever read that poem "The captive air of Chandipur-on-Sea"? :0)
Hugs. Must talk soon.

Hope your parents are fine.

@mandira: Delhi wasn't very cold, surprisingly! The parents were definitely more comfortable with someone around all the time.
@chox, mampi: great weekend, will blog about it soon.
@oj: Hugs, dear. I just googled the poem and loved it. Will share it with my son when he comes home!
