That photograph shows my brother Arvind’s two daughters, two sons in law, son and daughter in law besides his six grand children. They are all at Chennai now to attend a family wedding and this is a fantastic photograph of the family.
Arvind showcased this on his facebook page and promptly was asked by my sister Padmini as to where he and his wife Shanta were. I just could not resist the temptation and commented there that Arvind and Shanta should do what Preeti Natarajan did.
Just five minutes ago, I get an email from my son and heir Ranjan : “Means we can take you along on our anniversary trip? ”
Come August, it will be Ranjan’s and Manjiree’s first wedding anniversary and they are planning on a holiday, destination yet to be finalised. Instead of leaving me alone to land myself into all kinds of trouble they have been trying to persuade me to accompany them and I have been resisting them as I do not want to be a kabab mein haddi. In Hindustani that means ‘a piece of bone in the kebab.’
But to go as their official photographer is a different ball game altogether!
Would you do it if you were me?
