As much advice as you need and you can accompany me on my long walks with Chikki. We can eat together and drive to places of your interest. Or just meet for dinner. I can also take you to the wonders of the Deccan- Bijapur, Gulbarga and Bidar.

The house is modern and functional. There is a barbecue and seven hilly acres. Two acres of vegetables, gladioli and strawberries until the water lasts. Electricity fluctuates and there is no electricity on Tuesdays but it's an opportunity to get out and about and it's a great excuse for a lovely candlelit dinner. There is no wi-fi although 3G mobile access works for most major mobile networks. Mahabaleshwar provides everything from internet cafes to a wide variety of cuisine.
There is very heavy rainfall in the monsoon (June to August) but the house is still open and accessible. A wonderful time to write.
As my friends would be. Lots of good talk and laughter and sharing our books and what we thought of them. No dogs because of Chikki the Alsatian who lives there. No smoking as my husband died of Emphysema three years ago. He was a writer and this is where he wrote his last three plays.
A 69 year old English woman, lived in India for the past 47 years. Books are my life and my passion is the Deccan and its art history. My late husband was an author and playwright and once said "only peace and quiet grow at Blue Valley" but we also grow our own fresh vegetables and gladioli. I have two daughters who live with their lovely families in England and Mumbai respectively. And my three grandchildren keep me busy in either place.
