Route 79 Shining

India’s election results have stunned the pundits. Isn’t democracy wonderful?

Almost exactly one month ago - I saw the wondeful Aishwarya Rai live in concert - here in London - right here in my neighbourhood! I’ve been meaning to commemorate the occasion with a Route 79/London/UK photo montage of Aish. Have been too busy to get it all done in one go - so I did little bits at a time - and here it is:

Aishwarya Loves London (Route 79 Shining)

Click the play button in the media player below to listen to a currently-popular, really sloppy, not-from-a-film Asian love song whilst you are admiring the picture.

(The song is a progressive download encoded at 48kbps - so it should be fine for dialup users - and will be cached after the first download. Also - because it’s encoded at such low bitrate - I have pre-equalised the sound in order to preserve some tonal range - so you don’t set your equaliser on.)

This site is truly a treasure-trove of info about London life. I’ll be continuing my studies there in a few months, and so I really enjoyed perusing all the great London pics (and even greater Indian music!) that you’ve got here. Keep up the great work.

Oh, and what a gorgeous pic of Aishwarya Rai!

Hi Lynn - many thanks for your comment! Hope you enjoy your stay when you’re over here! London is the coolest place in the world - but be sure to see “real” London - and not just the Central tourist areas.

And I hereby formally declare Aish to be a Londoner :-)

Hi Sarah: yes - you probably didn’t copy it from my page - but Yahoo Image search copied it from my page. Try this out: go to the maggot image on your page and right-click on it and select “properties”. It will say something like etc. What this means is that your page is linking to my server to get the image. I used that image in a very old posting:

Anyway - don’t worry about it. Cheers!

I suppose you have got another of your two fav. things together. You add Dilbert and Chicken Tikka to that somehow, and thats all a Londener would dream of.
