Friday was dad's last day at office, I planned to attend the official retirement function long ago, took a leave on friday but could not go there as was busy doing preparation for evening get-together at home, got tied up coordinating with caterer, tent-wala and arranging other miscellaneous stuff.


Sunday, we planned to watch a movie but ended up at Dargah of "Sufi Saint Hazrat Khwaja Syed Nizamuddin Aulia", it was nice but the lane that leads to dargah was dingy and fully encroached by shopkeepers. Also visted mazaar of Mirza Ghalib and Aamir Khusro.

Same day met my sister's neighbors, they have a 3 yr old boy.

sis: "Aapka naam kya hai?"
boy: "oooudi"
we: {* surprised but thought name must be Aditya or something like that and nick name addy jaisa kuch hoga *}
sis: "Mumma ka kya naam hai?
boy: "lambojineee"
we:{* more surprised n curious *}.
Sis: "beta papa ka kya naam hai?"


Lets see, how Mr.Chappell accommodates Dada and Laxman in the line up, I wish not at the cost of Raina and Venu. I think its time to rest Kaif and Yuvi.
