INDIA 2005   22nd January - 23rd FebruaryFor other India pics Click here

I am setting up these pages in 2013. These pictures are really here for my benefit and my friends from eight years ago. I was met in Chennai by my friend Imran. We went direct to Mahabalipuram on the coast for a few days. This was one month 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.
