    hello! How are you?
    I'm doing fine thanks.

    It's going to be Indian year in Lille,France from october to January. Anyone heard about it? Here is the program www.lille3000.fr. It's in french for those who can understand for the moment but soon there's gonna be an English version.
    For those who want to visit france it's a good idea to visit during this time. This city is going to be completely transformed into India

    Thanks!
    The majority of indian songs are bollywood related; however, there's a very small market for pop. I *really* don't know if you'll like it, but i love dancing to daler mehandi's 'dardi rab rab kardi'. Other indian pop artists i remember (who don't do remixes for bollywood) are:
    -anamika (but girly stuff)
    -shaan (romantic...)
    -lucky ali ('')
    -bombay vikings (they do some remixes, but change the words..)
    -viva(indian spice girls 'nuff said)

    that's all i can think of, but yeah check out the bhangra stuff from punjabi mc. Hope you get what you want!

    Aw thanks Glad to be a member of the soc!

    I spent 4 months just outside Bangalore doing voluntary work. I was working with Parikrma Humanity Foundation who run 3 schools in the city for kids from slums and orphanages. I taught music with my friend.... lots of fun... the kids were amazing

    We did a lot of South India travel during those 4 months (Kerala, Goa, Gokarna, Pondicherry, Hampi) and after the placement we did a mega tour of the north (Chennai up to Kolkatta, Varanasi- incredible place, Agra- ah the Taj!!, Pushkar, all around Rajasthan-Jaipur,Jodhpur,Jaisalmer, Delhi, Himalayas-McLeod Ganj, Shimla) - then visited Sri Lanka for 10 days.
    Pretty exhausting stuff but amazing!! I miss Bangalore though. Yeah it's polluted and smelly and crowded and the rickshaw drivers are a pain but theres something about it! I think I definitely prefer the south.

    That sounds interesting. Are you basically from UK? I hope you definetely had a cultural shock in India. Can you please share something about it?
    Bangalore is no more the same Bangalore in the 80's. Pollution in the metropole cities is getting worst in the recent years.
    It's really a good plan going on such a mission. Did you manage to learn any Indian language btw?

    Hey I am regular :rolleyes: No worries, I forgive you. India was cool, just stayed in Punjab mostly (went to the Golden Temple), Not many strange experiences, I had a baby lizard crawl down my neck, found a scorpion in the bathroom, and then there's all the staring from locals, but meh.

    Tht's my fav. place. I would like to visit Golden temple when I visit North India. My next Indian trip is to Rajasthan, Punjab, Agra and Delhi. Have to wait 1 more year

    omg ! lizard crawled down ur neck? There are many superstitions about the lizard falling over different parts of the body. Do you know about it?
    Like lizard falling on head is a very bad sign and so on.... lol ! funny to hear such things. In some films there are certain scenes like a lizard falls on the newly married bride's back and she's not allowed to sleep with her husband for a certain number of days:eek:

    What is your most favourite place in Punjab?

    Yep i'm from the UK. I guess I got culture shock when I first arrived as it was all new and different, but id tried to prepare myself - read a lot of stuff about the country (books, websites etc) although of course nothing can prepare you totally! It wasn't as big a shock as i was expecting though. The country continued to surprise me for the entire 6 months though - you never know what is round the corner there! good and bad. It's a country of complete contrasts but thats what makes it fascinating. I have to say the most random thing i saw was a goat (a living one) being placed on a motorbike.... we passed it quite quickly so didnt see what happened, but how it was meant to stay on i have no idea! It was quite hard travelling as we were two girls so got a lot of stares (and groping sometimes)... But we had plenty of brilliant experiences.

    We picked up some Kannada, the regional (Karnataka) language - the kids taught us some hehe. Also learnt a tiny bit of Hindi but not very much as for most of the time we were in Bangalore. Anyone here speak any Kannada?
