We all had been waiting for this day.. ! the day of the Convocation!! My younger sis received her PhD degree in Mathematics after 6 years of research work!!! That she managed to complete it inspite of a full time job and then.. a toddler in hand.. overcoming many hurdles .. is a story in itself. To sum it up.. she achieved her goal braving the situations which would have made lesser mortals give up in sheer frustation! In fact she has been an inspiration to us .. making us believe that good things do come to those who have the will to persevere, faith in their work and of course loads of patience 🙂
So..we all cheered for her when she received her certificate, posed for pictures with her .. and topped it with a grand family dinner party 🙂 .. by sis n her doting hubby!
I’m not sure what plans the others had.. but i was sure going to give the kids a feel of the waters! Luckily there were steps leading to the water. Once i stepped into the waters..my sis followed.. and we got Ammu n Adi to step in. They had a blast and didnt want to come out 🙂 They finally relented when told that we’ll go to Brindavan gardens..where there’ll be lots of water n fountains..
Now.. we have to go all the way on the left and come back to the starting point.. to go to the Musical fountain. No one complained though. The breeze came in strong from time to time and splashed the water from the fountains onto the passers by. Ammu n Adi too gave out excited shrieks.. and loved it all!! As their excitement soared, their patience to pose for photographs dwindled 🙄 They still managed to pose animatedly whenever requested 🙂 and were relieved to be let of to revel in the showers. They went.. ‘aaiiiii pinnnkkkk!!!!’ on seeing the pink fountains!! Their energy and enthu filled us with some .. we were more than happy that we made the trip..it was totally worth it.
We returned home with aching legs but filled to the brim.. with smiles and cheer!! Ammu kept on telling me how much she enjoyed .. n that she was verrrryyy haaappppyyy 🙂 What more can one ask for?
