Virtual food!


I got a surprising call from Chennai today. It was my classmate from college (Architect Saravanan) who rang up to inform that he found my name mentioned in the Hindu Magazine yesterday. Instinctively (though asking for too much) I thought it must be one of my buildings that's been featured...but darn! on the contrary and quite unexpected, it was about my food exploits in Afghanistan. Of course I must agree with Viji that at one point of time Ashokism was mistaken by many to be a 'food blog' . I had to force myself from posting more on food and focus my Cam on other equally interesting things in Life.

Viji is at her best when she writes about her favorite subject - Food!

  2. The Internet. The Hindu....Am tempted to do some crystal ball gazing. Sun TV can feature you. But you called so & so a moron. (ditto for Jaya TV). You have also fought CNN in your most recent posts mate. There are options still ! I see you becoming a star. A star from Kabul ! Wow. Take care. The Talibs dont like publicity !!!

  16. Hey! This is a really cool site!! Traveling is sooo cool especially if it’s to exotic locations..The coolest part is getting the best bargains on flights around the world... I found this really neat online fare consolidator called Cfares, that I use regularly.. check out the link at :


    http://cfares.regalix.com/cfares/cfares/index.jsp?channel=blpo&adgroup=ashokism.blogspot
    Tell all ur friends and colleagues in the US. Awesome prices if ur flying anywhere in the world..and it’s really useful, if ur flying from the US to China, South East Asia and Europe…hope this helps!! The Gold membership is free, and the deals are really good.. They have a platinum membership too, but I think that’s paid.. not really sure, but you get much better deals than the gold membership.

    Cheers
