Memorable 36

On 14th June at around 11.50 pm there was a knock at the door. One of my nephews was standing there sweating profusely. He said that he was at a client's place nearby and since he got late there, he thought of coming to our place. Somehow not being convinced to buy his words, I went to the kitchen to prepare something for him to eat. 
After about 10 mins again there was a knock at the door. I opened it and this time I found another two of my nephews who stays nearby standing at the door with tensed faces. Seeing them I was convinced that something was terribly wrong. I asked them to come inside. 
As they entered there was an outburst of HAPPY BIRTHDAY wishes from four of them- my daughter and three of my nephews. I was shocked as I totally forgot that it was 15th June, the day I came to this world 36 years ago. I could not understand how to react. It took a few moments to recollect myself, as I was prepared not for Birthday wishes but for some horrible news. I was very happy as w…

Vacation Work

A month long vacation with an additional extension of one week because of the scorching heat is over today. Hereby all the late nights and late mornings come to an end. Though late night is yet an option but late mornings are a big no no. Why? because every morning my daughter has to leave home for school at sharp 7 O' clock, five days a week. 
A vacation work, a project on 'any state of India you visit during your summer holidays' is finally wrapped up today. Since we visited Bangalore, Mysore and Ooty during the vacation, Akanksha choose the state of Karnataka for her project. 
The ultimate day started as below..

Childhood Memory

Yesterday evening having nothing much to do - not in a mood to go outside because of the scorching heat, just finished reading a book and not having another one at that moment, also read the whole newspaper right from weather forecast to classifieds, so, thought of logging in to Face Book after a couple of days. 
But once I logged in I was giggling. I was not able to control my excitement. Looking at my face my daughter got to know there was something that brought that unusual expression in my face. Being curious she started inquiring why was I giggling so much. Since I did not respond to her, she peeped into the PC and in a very astonished voice she was shooting one question after another, "What is this? Who are they? Are these your school photographs? Are they your friends?".
My classmate Sazid Asraf now a friend in FB uploaded two group photographs of class VI(1997) and class VII(1998).

I was so excited that I gave a tight hug and a kiss to my daughter and said, "Ye…
