While boarding the British Airways flight to Chennai from LAX, I tried to tell the woman at the check-in counter, that my surname was Nair. I said that a few times. I told her I knew Elizabeth (Hurley). I have seen Austin Powers a dozen times. Still they did not upgrade me to First class.
The tamil actor Vijaykanth was in First Class. I am sure he got that by telling his surname was Nair.
The monsoon has not yet arrived here in Kerala. There were some pre-monsoon showers. Still June 1 is the expected date.
