INDIA pictures 2002

5th January - 3rd February

My usual visit to Virology Department in Sri Venkateshwara University, Tirupati, working with Prof. Srinivasulu and Dr Sai Gopal, giving lectures in microbial physiology.
I was met at Chennai by my good friend Surya Prakash who took me to Mahabalipuram for a couple of days before going to Tirupati. We also went to this same coastal town on the way home.
From Tirupati I visited Chittoor to see Imran and first met good friends Madhu and Gopi.

I do not have many pictures from this visit; I had a poor camera. They are worth putting on my site because they have pictures of some of my friends in Thumulagunta and Chittoor who feature in my pictures for the next ten years or more.
