A year doesnt end where it starts ..My last post this year is a tribute to the two cities – one that has shaped me and the other, which I hope will shelter me ..Madras /Chennai and Bangalore. And I thought the setting sun will be an apt metaphor for all that went right and wrong this year ..Im more an evening person and the soft, pink rays and the twilight zone have always been special to me .

To my family, friends and my fellow bloggers – Wishing all of you health, happiness and lots of positive energy and attitude ! Thank you.

    A place where the setting sun looks like a rising sun would best symbolise at the same time the end as well as the beginning of a year.

    Wish you a happy new year 2008.

    Hi L,

    The sunset and twilight pictures are apt for a year-end. Well done.

    I hope Bangalore not just shelters you but continues to give you lots of happy times as well. I wish many more things may go right than wrong in your life. All the very best for 2008.

    Hi Lakshmi,

    Like your blogs. I am new to this site. Currently just browing through. I have done ample travelling when I was India. I wish someday I will have blog about all of the places I visited.
