Chola, India -- Of all the field trips the one which stands in my mind was that of Puthur. During my two decade old research that was the very first time that I pedalled nearly 25 kms to see a Buddha at Puthur in Tiruvarur district of Tamil Nadu. The pains which I faced during that trip left me when it - the news of the finding of a Buddha - was informed through media.
