Double Birthday majaa :)
from the party
Celebrating inchara's 4th Birthday today. Her birthday is actually on 11th April, but for various reasons, we had a party to her friends on 14th. The main reason being that my Mom had to go to her office (yeah!! even on a sunday). This is the eight sunday, she is missing from home. So, before you complain about government employees and their laziness, do remember there are people like my mom.
Anyway, the party was good. The kids enjoyed it. It probably would have been even better if all the children turned out. But the heavy showers in bangalore that day held them back. Lots of return gifts still remaining...unclaimed as yet.
The cake was tasty... got it from sweet chariot (Jayanagar 4th Block) . I had tasted a sample before ordering. Good that I did, 'cause nobody left me a piece to eat from the final delivery. The sweet chariot guys make excellent cake but has a bad, non-working Card Swiper. I had to pay cash when I paid advance, but was assured that the problem was temporary. When I went back to take the delivery.........opps!! its not working again. And outside, its raining very bad....So the lady is good enough to tell me that I can collect the cake and pay later in the next couple of days. (That reminds me... I still need to settle their Bill) So, Guys... It may be old fashioned..but Do keep some cash in your wallet.
Here arefrom the party
Bangalore Royal Challengers won their match on that day and have almost sealed their place in the semi-finals :)

Happy Birthday San :)
Its April 13th and its Santhosh's......Santhosh Radhakrishnan's Birthday. I know he celebrates his birthday according the Hindu Lunar Calender, But what stops us from wishing him on his official birthday .
Its now twenty years since we know each other. (uh! really!!? .... and I can't remember he ever giving us a b'day treat!!!!!!)
We were together in School, College, as Volunteers in Satya Sai Organisation, as members of Multimedia User Group, Bangalore and as collegues as well.
The kind of personality he has, has earned him quite a few nicknames (good to remember at times like these ;))
oDDawoDDi, San, Happiness, Divine and now SRK.
For those who do not know Santhosh, here are some facts about him.
