My wife Lalitha came up with the idea of staying in Sundara Mahal. A ” homestay” !! I thought oh no. If I want to stay at home, why should I travel 4000 miles and still feel like home. I want to be treated special, I wanted to be pampered. That is what a holiday is all about. My lesson from this experience is “never assume”. This was the best trip I have ever had. Murali and Prabha were people I think we had some relation in the past life. Homestay has got a whole new meaning now. I didn’t have to worry about anything. Everything was taken care of. This is what a real homestay is.
