This is Padmini, my sister from Chennai who had come for a visit. She landed up on Thursday and left earlier this evening. My father was delighted with her visit as was I and Ranjan. We will miss her.
Just as she was leaving for the airport, she slung a bag across her shoulder and seeing my quizzical look, said that it is a “bus conductor’s bag”. She said that after much searching, my niece bought it for her. She finds it easier to lug around than the conventional bags carried by ladies. I found it to be a sensible solution. Before I could think of taking a photograph of hers, she dashed off but here is a picture of the bag that I found o the net.
