It is the beginning of March already! Where did the time go? Some Indian food would help warm us all up, so why not book a divan for stimulating conversation and good food.

I realize that I overlooked posting dates for February, though there were a couple of private divans. Part of the reason for this is because my house needs some work done which could have been disruptive, and I haven't till now been able to pin down dates even though they are still not exact! The work is to begin this weekend for two to three weeks, so I think posting dates for April onwards should be safer.

Dates are as follows:

April 11, 18, and 25th - all Saturdays.

May 2, 9, 23 and 30 - Saturdays, and May 14 - Thursday.

June 6, 20 and 27 - all Saturdays.

Time does indeed fly, not entirely sure what happened to this year besides the fact that we seem to be at the end of it! It is almost mid November and I realise datesfor future divans have not been posted.

I am actually (now) thrilled to be going to India for the month of December to attend two family weddings; one in Delhi and one in Mysore, covering both sides of my family. I am also taking advantage to research a region with which I am not as familiar, namely the eastern coastal region - specifically Pondicherry where I have wanted to go for several years now. This trip will also allow me, for the first time to take in the annual "Puthari" or Harvest festival in Coorg, from where my father comes. All this means there will be no divans in December, however the dates for January 2015 are as follows:

All Saturdays - January 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st.

As usual, should anyone  be interested in a private divan please contact me for details. 

Wish you all a wonderful Holiday Season and look forward to hosting and seeing you in the New Year.

I think we have summer! Well for a few days at least - today is the 22nd of July with a predicted high of 30C, and speaking for myself - I am looking forward to the sweat and heat.

Think it would be a good idea to update dates available for the rest of the summer and dates for September too.

Dates available for the rest of the summer are, Saturdays August 16th and 23rd.

In September divans are scheduled for Saturdays, September 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th.

Please keep in mind that a private divan is always possible for a minimum of 6 people. It can be arranged for a date and at a venue of your choice. Do contact me for details.

Wish you all a great summer, with lots of R&R and look forward to seeing you in the not too distant future.
