India was my home for twenty five years and still is. The US is now home too! I am in my tenth year in the US, and it all began here in North Carolina. I moved here after my wedding in 2000 and it is lovely to be back for a short break. The South has its own distinctive appeal, and you have to live here to feel it. The magnolias are in bloom, the balmy weather, the gorgeous colonial mansions, the warm hospitality.......I could go on forever. However, I think this image says it all.
