Once in a blue moon

Rakesh Sharma lived in our apartment before we moved in. Wow!

And I am yet to visit the local planetarium - only been planning to go since we got here...

Wow! I think he lives (or did at some point) in Palm Meadows now.

He was am alumnus of a cousin’s school (by two decades or so) and had once come to speak at their Annual Day, where he told many anecdotes about his schooldays and teachers. Still remember being in total awe of him!

Wonderful! Art - am an anon, but regular reader of yours! Am so in awe of you! You're such an inspiration - look up to the way you bring up your kids, your creativity, amazing that you manage to work shuttling between 2 cities, and still catch up on all the happening stuff in the city:)
An those hanging elephants are so cute! Are they handmade?

ChoxBox said...

which show did you guys go to?!

my single crib re the planetarium is that it is too cold inside (almost like pluto mamma, the little one told me). they should do something about the aircon!

Cool! Now your home has become "Saare jahan se achcha"!

artnavy said...

Need to clarify- our apartment,as in our building/ complex- not exactly the flat

who is this rakesh sharma? never heard of him. is he a cricketer?

artnavy said...

rakesh sharma was India's first man on the moon

girija said...

artnary,
India has never sent any man or woman to moon. Chandraayan was first mission that went near moon, not landed on to moon.

artnavy said...

Girirja- i stand corrected- RS was the Indian man in space not moon
