First Anniversary - Dr Nalini Nargundkar - Aai - Nalu maushi - Ajji

 The trip to Pune was primarily on the occasion of the first anniversary of Shobha's mom. It was a tough month last year for all of us but there was much she left behind for us to learn and imbibe. Shobhs, me and Anjali were there last year and we decided to invite the others who were around - Shashi maushi, Gauri and Prakash, Parth and Maria, Meera and Vijay. Ashu came, So did Swapni. Suhita came all the way from Mumbai!

Aai and Kaka
