Happy Eightieth Birthday!
My mother is celebrating her eightieth birthday this Independence Day. Strangely enough, she got married on Republic Day. Both days were 'hers' before they had any national significance.
I plan to visit her in Delhi and surprise her on her birthday.
I think she is really beautiful.

That's an awesome coincidence, to share two such important days with the nation! And yes she is beautiful,and what a delightful surprise she must have got on her birthday:) I hope my daughter does this for me forty years from now....
I think she's beautiful too and she has passed on her grace and serenity to you too. I hope the birthday celebrations were good.
:) lovely. wish her from me, if a random wish from a random person means anything to someone who looks so self-contained, serene.
array - the wish above this one was from me, gouri. seem to have done something odd and gone anonyomous!

Wow! How old was she when that picture was taken? I'll bet not a day older than 65.Belated wishes to your mother. How generous of her to share her special days with the nation. :-)
@everyone: Thanks for the warm wishes and a warm welcome to the first-time commenters here!
For the record,( and OJ, especially) this photograph was taken at the end of April this year, when my nephew and his new bride came over on a visit. The blue shoulder belongs to the said nephew.
More in the next post!
she is so beautiful Dipali.. more so in real life. ... congratulations to her...
She has this look on her face which somehow makes all my tension melt away. It would be so great to see her in real life!
Happy birthday to your mother!
PS - Wandered here from Gouri's blog...
Came back to look at aunty's absolutely lovely and serene picture :) You know just looking at this makes me feel at peace :) Hope to meet u and her some day.
she looks beautiful in the true sense of the word.
how amazing is that!!! :))) Happy Belated Birthday!
@mad momma:Thanks- yes, her serenity reflects in her face, though her aches and pains are getting progressively worse(:
@penguin: Hi and welcome here! Thanks.
@neera: I'd called her and told her that you came back to look at her picture again- she was quite bemused, and pleased, of course!
Sorry, am late in wishing your mom a wonderful birthday. She is so graceful and beautiful - here's to her health!
Wow! Your mom has certainly aged well. Beautiful. Fyi, my birthday is Jan 26th and wedding anniversary on the 15th :-).
