Swaminarayan temple

Yesterday we went to Swaminarayan temple here and it is very huge and amazingly clean and grand and makes you feel very much at home and I think the same trust has made one in Toronto too...and near by they have an Indian restaurant.Shayona with shop too and they sell everything Indian, we had dhokla samosa and aloo bonda..everything was very tasty.

Traffic in London is as  bad as in India and sometimes even worse..its very irritating to travel in car, as even 14 miles take around one hour minimum, roads are narrow and  bumpy and traffic sense is completely missing...its chaotic sometimes....so much so that  we go by tube even for airports.

We went to see Westfield Mall..its newly constructed and huge also, but I have seen better mall in Toronto, so didnt find so amazing.....here one section is called..The Village and it has all designer brands like..Gucci, Dior, coach, Jimmy choo etc etc..I had seen one ladies hand bag in India being sported by many celebrities and in Aisha also, and everywhere they write..price on request, so I was very curious to know it and when I got the opportunity I asked,,it was for 1600 pounds:)

When I was in Zurich, I thought that it was very expensive, as I had seen US and it is very reasonable, but now when I am in London, I find it the most expensive city and I dont feel like doing any shopping.,not that I wanted to do any:)

Here the girls for housework areeasily available and quite reasonable too, I feel very sad that girls from India come here and do all menial jobs for pennies and are still happy though they are living alone in a new country without their family and working so much,why cant our govt provide some opportunities in our own country to earn a decent living.
