One of our colleagues was unwell and we took her to a Doctor a bit far away. The appointment with the doctor was at 7 in the evening and by the time we returned home it was already 8 in the evening. Following our taxi was another vehicle and as we got down a loud voice greeted us from the said vehicle “Good evening uncle, …. go ahead, we will just drop in”. I could recognize the thick voice… it was Jojo, my nephew.
Exactly ten minutes later Jojo surfaced at our house with a Cake in hand, along with his wife and son Jijo. “Happy Anniversary Uncle !” It was then I realised it was the D-day for us ! Our marriage anniversary !
Those days we were in Bangalore, and Sara greeted us “Happy Anniversary” ! We were surprised and amused. “How come you remember the day ? “ I asked Sara. “Simple, the date is 14th of February – the Valentine Day !. And by the way how did you manage to coincide your marriage with this special date ?” I was a bit confused and flatly asked “Err..what is this Valentine Day “ ? Sara had a real loud laugh and took a class for me on the significance of V Day !. I explained to her that contrary to her belief, we got married in the days of Black & White era and life was not as colourful as it is now !

Jojo quickly placed the cake on a small table and after a long time we had the reason to celebrate our Marriage Anniversary !!! Our little grand daughter Rianna was the chief guest ! Jojo is a singer in Bollywood and during end months of the year he comes regularly to Kolkata …. that is the season here for musical functions, mostly open air public performances. The season starts with Durgapuja and lingers on till mid February.
Thanks a lot Jojo…… let me play one of your popular numbers. (just Click below)
