|Birthday bumps for Santosh Tyagi|
"What am I supposed to do?” Shekhawat asked, convinced that his picnic plans were jinxed. “The first time they said that 60 Nigerians would be landing there. On the second attempt, they say a gang of 300 children would be taking over the place. Where are we to go now? We have become victims of the evil eye. Still, if you say, I will try once more for February 27, or else let us think of some other place.”
Monthi Serrao informed that her “church group” would be going on a picnic to Madh Island on February 20 and anybody so desirous is welcome to join.

Meanwhile, Angad Singh withdrew his participation since his tickets to Mohali are booked for next week.
The highlight of the day though, was the birthday bumps Santosh Tyagi received from friends and well-wishers this morning. She had just about distributed lozenges after the customary fourth laughter when suddenly, out of nowhere, half a dozen ladies grabbed her legs and arms and lifted her physically up and down, taking us by shock and surprise. This was the first time an elderly lady was being accorded the treatment by some equally not-so-young ladies. But Santosh took it sportingly and laughed deliriously like a child. She struggled to extricate herself, stood momentarily still to regain her balance and exhaled: “Phew, never before have I experienced this in my life!”
Once again, Many Happy Returns of the Day, Santosh-ji.
