INDIA 2006   19th January - 21st FebruaryFor other India pics Click here

I was met in Chennai by my friend Imran. We went direct to Mahabalipuram on the coast for a few days. This was one year after the 2004 Boxing day Tsunami which had wrecked many places along the beach. Then on to Tirupati where I stayed for five weeks, teaching in Sri Venkateshwara University [SVU]. As usual I stayed in the SVU Guest House, 3km from town on the Bangalore road. I was the guest of Professor Srinivasulul, Head of the Virology Department. I gave a total of about 24 lectures and tutorials in the Virology Department and some lectures in the Biochemistry Department. I also visited Imran, Madhu and Gopi in Kadapa, Chittoor and nearby villages

Mahabalipuram  I came to Mahabalipuram (aka Mammalapuram) with Imran on the way, with Mahdu on the way home. The re-building only one year after the 2004 boxing day tsunami was most impressive
