In Western musical theory a cadence is a particular series of intervals or chords that ends a phrase, section, or piece of music. Cadences give phrases a distinctive ending. An analogy can be made with punctuation, with some weaker cadences acting as commas, indicating a pause or momentary rest, while a stronger cadence will then act as the period, indicating the end of the phrase or musical sentence.

Home away from home...:-)

It was great time today...when I was invited by a tamil family in the Bay Area for a dinner on the occasion of thanks giving. It is customary that the volunteers of the Hospitality program at the International Center in Stanford invite students to their home every year during thanks giving for a dinner or lunch. THis year I was lucky to be invited by Mr. Narayanan and Mrs.Veena a wonderful couple who have been in the Bay area for the last 13 years. It was very kind of them to pick us up from Stanford and drop us back after dinner. I was very happy that they had prepared the authentic Indian food, Uthappam, peanut chutney and dahi chutney. It was awesome..I had till my stomach was full... Also the couple were very lively and they shared a lot of their experiences over the last few years..They had a baby girl recently and it was so cute.. Although it was a very short visit..I was really happy to have met such wonderful people in the Bay area....Thanks to the Stanford Hospitality program...
