I have visited Bengaluru a number of times and have lived there once for three and a half years. I have family living there even now and may even land up there soon for a short visit to catch up with family and needless to say, a number of friends.
Like almost all Indians, I too love peanuts. The real variety as well as the comic strip. I feel lost without my daily quota of roasted peanuts, which is also called groundnuts here.
It therefore came as a total surprise to me to learn about a festival that is celebrated there every year about which I had no knowledge whatsoever. That it was brought to my notice by a newspaper from the UK makes it even more wonderful – full of wonder!
What a country that I live in! I seem to learn something or the other new about it almost on a daily basis.
