Lovely sisters perform

My lovely nieces performed in a program organized by their Guru Vidushi Shrimati Geeta Datar. This happens to be their annual day. They are learning Bharatnatyam for quite a few years, but I am a part of this event for the first time.

Took almost three months to finish reading, though started off during my long train journey to Gwalior.
Liked it. My first from Danielle Steel, would love to read more of her. Though story's centre point is Lily, every other character makes you love them.

At last got to time to watch PK. Thanks Sony. Entertaining, comedy, few realities of life.
Thumbs up for Amir, well done Anushka.

A simple movie with a message. Worth watching Big B and Irrfan Khan's acting and Deepika's yet another different avatar.

Can Love Happen Twice?

Once again a beautiful novel though not fully Ravinder's true story. Now I know why his novels are such a hit. For those who wish to read this, please read 'I too had a Love Story' first as 'Can Love Happen Twice?' is like the continuation of it.
