Congratulations, Meera! And, as I do always, I *love* your sketches. What a beautiful way to record your trip (that sketch of a carrom board brings back so many warm memories of cousins, grand-parents and aunts and uncles :)).

Also, thank you so much for your continued support of my blog--I truly appreciate it <3.
