Thank you all for making our fourth Annual day an enjoyable one!

Despite the traffic on Bypass road causing a delayed start our fourth annual day was a great success. The delay was probably for good as the sun had mellowed down a bit and there was more shade under the Mango trees of Jeevodaya. This time too we did not give up the concept of maintaining the green surrounding and used the front-yard as the stage.
