Maybe its […]

The ballroom at Taj Palace was abuzz with conversation, laughter and clinking of glasses as the busy servers sashayed around the room, balancing platters laden with food, drinks and used glasses.

It’s in the genes I guess. A skeleton which weighs all of 69 kilos as multiple body analyses have reconfirmed. An inherited sluggish thyroid gland. And yet despite a thyroxin supplement and a reasonably ‘light‘ diet ( includes dairy and occasionally eggs ) but no non vegetarian food,  limited fat,  alcohol on rare occasions and […]
