    • Thank you Viji for the beautiful, multi-lingual greeting. It would be a blessing too if Meera grows up to appreciate our rich multi-lingual heritage.
      Thank you and wishing you all the best,

    • Indeed Usha,
      I have been truly blessed my entire life.
      Reminds me of that line in the popular song “Tune mujhe bulaya sherawaliye,” it goes: “Moo khol kar kya maangu? / Bin maangae, sab kuch diya //”
      And even now, with Meera.
      Btw, looks like we will see you very soon.
