Mid March full of Feasts, Guests, Meetings and Ceremonies!!

Mid of March 2010 has been full of guest, meetings, seminars, etc, it was nice meeting soo many interesting people from all the corners of the world from different working back grounds, it was also nice to meet friends who came back like Mrs. Ernestine Badegruber, Alison and Kieth. I have some pictures from Sambhali trust that i would like to share with all of yourself.

Family: Mukta has started to study again this year to finish her graduation, it required a lot of motivation, she is now at her father's home. Ayush is with me, he has to go to school everyday, it is for the first time he has lived away from his mother, he is doing fine, some evenings he wants to talk to Mukta on phone, It has also given me time to know him better and for him to know his father, i am very proud of Ayush and i hope he is proud of me....
Grand ma has recovered from her painful sickness, the winter is gone, the Autumn is nice and smooth, it is getting warmer everyday. Grand ma can not walk anymore. Mumy is doing well, she has become very cheeky since her stroke, we are happy she is back amongst us.
It was very painful when the doctor brought me her jewelery and clothes after her stroke when she was in ICU at the hospital. the journey for the foundation of our home mumy and grand ma for the last year was very bad and critical, it is unbelievable for a lot of people here with their recovery, we are proud of Mukta's dedicated service to her grand mother in law and mother in law and prayers of our friends here and overseas.e got the birth calendar made again, we lost it, we will match it with his wife's birth calendar, we are looking for a bride for him, we will engage him soon and set him off to marry the lady we will choose for his life time. We have asked all our cousins and family to help us choose a nice woman who can adjust in our family and give respect to elders and love to the youngers.
