Happy birthday Naana Garu !! We would have called you early in the morning to wish and asked the rhetoric question of what new clothes you bought only to be given the rhetoric answer “new briefs” ha ha πŸ™‚

Well I read the following in this book that I am reading right now. The book is titled “Aleph” by Paulo Coelho. He is traveling in the trans siberian train with a group and during a discussion he says this –

” .. We never lose our loved ones. They accompany us, they don’t disappear from our lives. We are merely in different rooms. For example, I can’t see who is in the next carriage, but it contains people traveling in the same time as me, as you, as everyone. The fact that we can’t speak to them or know whats going on in that other carriage is completely irrelevant. They are there. So what we call “life” is a train with many carriages. Sometimes we’re in one, sometimes we’re in another, and sometimes we cross between them, when we dream or allow ourselves to be swept away by the extraordinary.”

He is so right, because it still feels like you are around and right here…. someday I will write about all the extraordinary happenings as soon as you passed into a different compartment on this train – things happened just the way you wanted ! Including my inability to spend money uselessly :):):)

Am waiting to meet you again as I know we will.

Thanks for passing on your values, your passion for travel, your zest for life besides your good looks. Love you Appa.
