Dear Friends,

[lineate][/lineate]Christmas is always a welcome day,[lineate][/lineate]The coming amidst us of our Lord,[lineate][/lineate]At Midnight Mass we gather to pray:[lineate][/lineate]“Thank you, for being with us, O’ God”[lineate][/lineate]


[lineate][/lineate]“Thank you for giving us great friends,[lineate][/lineate]Our loving family, near and dear ones,[lineate][/lineate]Thank you for giving us enough to meet ends,[lineate][/lineate]And yet have some for cakes and buns.”[lineate][/lineate]


[lineate][/lineate]It is also time to pen a few words,[lineate][/lineate]About our life, family and home,[lineate][/lineate]We hope you’d find them better than forwards,[lineate][/lineate]And you’d be tempted to share your own.[lineate][/lineate]


[lineate][/lineate]We are still at Kharghar, Navi Mumbai,[lineate][/lineate]Our abode after my retirement,[lineate][/lineate]It is not Paris, London or Shanghai,[lineate][/lineate]But it brings us great contentment.[lineate][/lineate]


[lineate][/lineate]After all, it is a little nest of our own,[lineate][/lineate]So what if it is really very small?[lineate][/lineate]It never makes us feel alone,[lineate][/lineate]We are, as they say, ‘having a ball.’[lineate][/lineate]


[lineate][/lineate]My mother lives with us here,[lineate][/lineate]She is now in better health,[lineate][/lineate]Her second childhood makes her doubly dear,[lineate][/lineate]Her blessings are our greatest wealth.[lineate][/lineate]


[lineate][/lineate]Lyn keeps us all comfy and well fed,[lineate][/lineate]Whilst she battles through her ailment,[lineate][/lineate]She looks as lovely as the day we wed,[lineate][/lineate]Smilingly keeping many an engagement.[lineate][/lineate]


[lineate][/lineate]Arjun is with OML, doing his stuff on NH7,[lineate][/lineate]He has merged indiecision with his new portal;[lineate][/lineate]With his girl Samira he is in seventh heaven,[lineate][/lineate]Though he is, like us, a mere mortal.[lineate][/lineate]


[lineate][/lineate]Arun is happily with Rhythem and Hues,[lineate][/lineate]Doing his bit on producing animation,[lineate][/lineate]His band Riot Peddlers was recently in the news,[lineate][/lineate]Their performance in I-Rock won them admiration.[lineate][/lineate]

Riot Peddlers

[lineate][/lineate]Arun too has Kirti as his chosen one,[lineate][/lineate]They are happy to be together,[lineate][/lineate]They too joined us for Christmas fun,[lineate][/lineate]No what, why, where and whether.[lineate][/lineate]


[lineate][/lineate]That leaves me, I am still with Reliance,[lineate][/lineate]Working six days in a week,[lineate][/lineate]Old age has somewhat subdued my defiance,[lineate][/lineate]And made my rebellion a little weak.[lineate][/lineate]


[lineate][/lineate]However, I run a blog called sunbyanyname,[lineate][/lineate]My little window to my own world,[lineate][/lineate]I am not after money, applause or fame,[lineate][/lineate]I simply don’t belong to the herd.[lineate][/lineate]


[lineate][/lineate]So that is about all of us,[lineate][/lineate]We hope to hear from you, dear,[lineate][/lineate]We wish you a very Merry Christmas[lineate][/lineate]And a Happy New Year.[lineate][/lineate]
