She sells sea shells by the sea-shore

Sunset at Tithal Beach, Valsad

Sunset at Tithal Beach, Valsad

I did my schooling from St. Joseph’s English Teaching High School, Bulsar (now called Valsad) – a town in the State of Gujarat. There was a beautiful sea-shore called ‘Tithal’. I have many pleasant memories associated with this beach. I visited it with my parents, siblings and with schoolmates. The last visit was in 1976 when a few members of batch of 1966 (Class XI) met to catch up with each other. It was a re-union worth remembering. Hence in keeping with the memories of those old days, I have changed the theme of this blog today. Hope you will love it.

Now, what about the sea-shells being talked about in the heading? Well, thats just a tongue twister for you to practise.

    Dear Brocajji,
    Nice, my parents live in Umbargoan. Actually my family is from there
    much close to Valsad. And the beach of Umbargoan is far the most loveliest.


  2. Jitoo ji,
    I have visited your site once before–been lead to it through a google search. I must say I went back to my blog page to “sajao” it a bit after seeing yours! It is a beautiful (with a capital B) site. Not just what you write but also the web page design. After that I had also written to Mallick babu to ask him if I could get RSS feed into my blog page like yours—but he probably didnt reply to my mail.
    Congrats on your site. I love the blue color, sand and the palm fronds.
    Much regards

  3. I have added your blog on “the blogs I follow” list.

  4. Jitoo ji, ya! punjabi dances are the most enlivening! Ankita wishes she was born a punjabi! She thinks their lives are fun fun and fun! She does dance bhangra but there arent many functions here that we know of. Have a good week ahead.

    Hello good blog and great theme!

    Thanks for the visit and comment on my blog!

    I am a new blogger but I have about 10 blogs now; I have documented JNU Holi, caves, river rafting trip, have a group blog on fitness and whatnot!

    I am very busy until Nov@ exams, PhD etc.; so expect me after Nov (and poke me if I don’t show up); you know I am still unemployed and a bachelor and a sad man therefore!

    I firmly believe that every man must have a wife (partly you subscribe to this view too, LOL)! I also love quotes!

    You really look young in that pic on the about page. For a moment I thought it’s your son’s pic (who manages software projects)!

    BTW, the Julie above is my good friend!

    Doodle pad is good name for a blog!

    OEDILF is a site you may be aware of! They have undertaken a project to make a limericks dictionary! Mind-blowing site and forum! If you love limericks, it is the place to be! You must contribute there if you are not doing it already!

    I guess I don’t find here any option to subscribe to comment replies by you (that’s strange)! Anyways I will be back here soon.

    Thanks once again.

    Jitoo ji, I added your name etc to my profile–but somehow it hasnt shown up yet—will check again and add details. Sometimes I wish we could see photos of writers on Muse India!!! I always like a face to a name.

  7. Jitooji,
    I have joined a new job. It takes all my time. Havent a minute left when I get home. Writing is on my mind but I can never sit down to just write anything that comes up. Has to be fully defined in my head before I sit! I barely have time to check the computer so I am kind of away from museindia as well as other people’s blogs. Thanks for checking on me. I appreciate it.
