We didn't like any of the typical pet names which are popular India and we couldn't come to any conclusions quickly. After a long thought process finally lalitha short listed 'Kitty' and 'Nemo' characters from Monster's' inc and Finding Nemo respectively. 'Kitty' sounded little girlish and so finally decided on Nemo. Who doesn't like the little cute fish in 'Finding Nemo'.

We are now in the process collecting 'Finding Nemo' toys. Helping 'Disney' come out of the business difficulties :-)

Arun, my younger brother has been wondernig what the word 'Nemo' mean. He has done some googling and passed me the following link

Trip to Mekedatu

Our team has recently been to Mekedatu. Mekedatu is 98 kms towards south from Bangalore. The Cauvery River squeezes through a deep and narrow gorge over which a goat could leap. That's how Mekedatu (pronounced Maykay Daatu) got its name. Just 3 km from this spot is Sangama, the confluence of Cauvery and Arakavathi where there is a temple dedicated to Sangameshwara.

I must say that the trip is very enjoyable and the team is at its best in making the trip success. Read on the following link to find a summary of the trip written by 'Prashanth'.
