Cocktail Party This Weekend…

by The British Asian Blog

…and I fly out to India just for the weekend.

I go Friday evening 22nd and return Monday 25th June.

As crazy as it may sound, I am invited ‘specially’ for a cocktail party in India.  This Cocktail party is first for me in India, and my schedule has been drawn up and all arrangements have been made.  Unfortunately, I am unable to disclose any more information, as I have been summoned by a very special acquaintance to spend this weekend together with all expenses paid for.

Those who read this, may question and ponder about this cocktail party.  As some may interpret this as: (1) an actual cocktail party involving alcohol and mixing of various chemicals, or (2) to celebrate the completion of the Bollywood film ‘Cocktail‘, or (3) a well deserved break, where enjoying the experience of India with added benefit and touch of cocktails.  I think I will let your minds wonder and ponder as to why I am going all the way to India for this ‘Cocktail Party’ – the devil is in the detail?

After arriving at my destination in Bangalore, during my stay in India, I will be driven out to spend an entire evening and one night in a 5-star hotel in Udaipur, Rajasthan.  As my acquaintance has some important work to attend out there.

This is, indeed, an exciting weekend.  One which was planned for me in total surprise and spontaneously.

Until I see you next after 25th June, I like to leave you with this cocktail below:
