A sequel to the postcard is a recipe for the red tea or Sha Sao as it is known in Khasi. Delightfully simple to make, it is a great accompaniment on cold, rainy days and works with well all sorts of spices!…The only catch is finding good quality Assam tea for that perfect Red Sha Sao! :)

Sifting through your memories of a splendid trip and picking out one can be tough! For Aarti and me, I guess the best bit of the recently concluded Meghalaya trip was always That cup of hot, steaming Sha Sao or red tea with all our friends!

Many thanks to everyone who lent us a helping hand throughout! Khublei Shibun Meghalaya - you will be Fondly remembered! :)

I had a lot of fun working on Indian dinosaurs from 'Stone Eggs' - a new book for Tulika Publishers written by Helen Rundgren. In the process, I learnt a lot more about them too. Now wish I could find some of those fossils they're talking about!
