Hot Summer, Long Vacation!


Back after a long sleep! Its very hot these days in Adipur - Kutch, the place where I live. We are all eagerly awaiting rain-gods to bless us soon with His showers.

We Kutchi's also celebrate Asadhi Beej (which is on 24th June, 2009 as per the English Calender). This is a very auspicious day for starting any new ventures, social functions, business & social ties. Its also the KUTCHI NEW YEAR DAY.

I wish, in advance, all Kutchi's residing in & outside of Kutch - a very happy & prosperous New Year -

On 14th of this month, we had gone for a picnic at Mau village of Mandvi Taluka. A family friend has a very beautiful farm-house there. To our pleasant surprise, we found a big swimming pool (actually, it was mainly a huge water reservoir meant for watering the plantation in farm-house).

We requested the owner of that farm-house, & he was kind enough to let us loose into the pool and have fun. We had ace swimmers in Neelesh Uncle, Pulin Uncle & Kalpesh Uncle who were there to guard us against any mis-hap.

We all had a blast swimming in the pool and the playing around the spacious & green farm house. We also wandered into various plantations, & learned a few things about farming. It was a well-organized farm with separate places each for bananas, coconut, mango (my favorite). Needless to add, we also picked & ate our favorite fruits from the trees!!

I will upload a few photographs of our picnic, soon.

bye for now!

  2. hi

    a heartiest greetings to all the rising suns of the SUNRISE GROUP. In fact, the suns are not rising, rather they are already roused and are shining at their peak hours.

    It was really a wonderful day and a memorable day ofcourse. I still cant forget that HARIYALI AUR RAASTA. Arey baba main movie ki baat nahi kar raha, i literally mean HARIYALI AUR RAASTA. Really we and our kids are lucky to see and enjoy the green fields which I suppose will not be available for the future generation.

    Come lets get togather and discuss and do something to ensure how this beauty of nature can be preserved and thus to be gifted to the generation next.

    Chalo, bhai log, apun ka time ho gayela hai, hafta vasuli ka, to apun tapun ko chhodke jaa rela hai.

    Bole to dopahri ho chuki MAAMU, chal kalti mar ke nikal le patli gali se...........

    Fir milenge doston, kuch aur suvichar ke saath.

    Lovingly yours
    One of the Sun among all the suns of SUNRISE GROUP.
