HI, I just traveled the other direction and arrived here in Bangalore 3 days ago..
I went by overnight bus (east) from Goa to Hampi (450 rupees/$10) for a sleeper cabin. Then I took an overnight train 10hours for 210rupees ($5) to Bangalore.
The bus ride was horrible, and the train ride was great.
Hey, I realize this didn't totally answer your question, other than I would try to stick to trains (or plane if you can afford it), and not combine the journey with an overnight journey on a bus, no matter how nice teh picture of the bus looks like on the poster.

Have fun.

Hello Malvin, Wanderboy43, and Ajay,

Many thanks for your answers.

I find them very helpful and what I need.

I guess, I might end up taking the plane rather than the train -- though it is dearer it takes less time and is quite comfortable. I also want to go with my Mother and my sister - so that maybe better for my Mother.

Thanks again and I hope you will all have good traveling,

Susan

Home Cooked Kerala Food

by cochinjew about Home of Friends in Bangalore

I was introduced to Kerala food during my childhood visits to Brunei and to this day, I am partial to it. So when the chance arrives on visits to India to have homemade Kerala food, I am very thankful They make Idlis from the start, a time consuming process but the outcome is very tasty
Uppuma, an eastern bread substitute with spices mixed in
various curries, sambar and chutneys
always milky tea, which might have had its origin, now exported world wide in Kerala

Social Conventions

by dsantosh

"Social Conventions"

The Indian Hindu greeting is to fold the hands and tilt the head forward to namaste. Indian women prefer not to shake hands. All visitors are asked to remove footwear when entering places of religious worship. The majority of Indians remove their footwear when entering their houses. Because of strict religious and social customs, visitors must show particular respect when visiting someone's home. Many Hindus are vegetarian and many, especially women, do not drink alcohol. Sikhs and Parsees do not smoke. Small gifts are acceptable as tokens of gratitude for hospitality. Women are expected to dress modestly. Short skirts and tight or revealing clothing should not be worn, even on beaches. Businesspeople are not expected to dress formally except for meetings and social functions. English-speaking guides are available at fixed charges at all important tourist centres. Guides speaking French, Italian, Spanish, German, Russian or Japanese are available in some cities. Consult the nearest Government of India Tourist Office. Unapproved guides are not permitted to enter protected monuments. Tourists are advised to ask for guides with certificates from the Ministry of Tourism or the Government of India Tourist Office (see address section). Photography: Formalities mainly concern protected monuments and the wildlife sanctuaries. Special permission of the Archaeological Survey of India, New Delhi, is necessary for the use of tripod and artificial light to photograph monuments. Photographs of the wildlife sanctuaries are allowed on payment of a prescribed fee which varies. Contact the nearest Government of India Tourist Office. Tipping: Taxis and restaurants do not expect to be tipped however hotel and airport porters should be tipped around 20 rupees, and guides and drivers 100 rupees per day where service is not included.
