Compounding this distressful state, there have been two major tragedies: One, Mumtaz Jahan has lost her mother after prolonged hospitalization. Age-related issues are being cited as the cause of death. Two, Niloufer Rassiwala’s father has also passed away during this period. She and her husband, Yusuf R were on vacation in Dubai where news of the untimely demise reached them and they had to cut short their trip promptly. Our condolences go to the bereaved families.
On the positive side, we are happy to note that Kanta Sharma has been discharged from hospital (ref post of March 14) and is at present, recuperating at home.

Thus, it was more a reunion of sorts at the Garden this morning, the muggy weather notwithstanding. Attendance hit a healthy 20-plus during the exercises, though there were still a few familiar faces missing – Bijoy Gupta, Shanti Singh, Angad Singh, Siba Prasad Maitra, Bihari Milwani… Hopefully, we would be seeing them soon.
Welcome back, Bose Babu.
Happiness is not having what you want. It is appreciating what you have.
