And We’re Up!

6 Apr

I haven’t mentioned 26/11 on this page for several months now. Not because the event and its aftermath have faded from memory. Far from it. But because I have intentionally wanted this blog to remain silent so this one could speak on my behalf.

In the months since those unforgettable nights, the India Helps team has been working silently, doggedly and unwaveringly on causes and projects it has adopted. But unless you’re a regular follower of the blog or a marathon reader who prefers to read 4 months’ posts at a go, chances are you’ll prefer our other page.

As an IH team member who does little other than be voluble and stuff her face at every meeting, I am so proud to present our website:

Do pop over and see what we’re about. Acquaint yourself with our causes. Offer support if you will. Or just tell us how drop dead gorgeous we all are. But hop over, dammit. I do the loudspeakering for the team and I’ll be fired if you don’t head there right NOW.

Are you there yet?
Good girl/boy.

What?! One can’t have too many day jobs in these recessionary times.

    To stop by
    Often, head bowed!

    Congrats !! That’s one heck of an achievement to be proud of.
    I’ll email you regarding one of the causes.

    And if Aunty G happens to read this, I think she rocks 😀
    [I tried to access her blog as well, but couldn’t]

    My dear Shivani
    I do thank thee
    Sorry you couldn’t visit
    Sometimes the Net’s a biscuit
    The cookie thats all crumbly!

    kudos to the India Helps team for your vision, commitment and drive. I love the new look of the website.

    and i second Shivani- Aunty G, you truly are the limerick guru!

    So Sukanya joins Shivani
    And am grinning with glee
    You boost my ego
    Through OJ amigo
    And set off another spree!

    M: Happy to hear it. Do you know how else you want to be of assistance?

    Aunty G: Oh, Aunty G,
    Chin-up it must be,
    To forge ahead
    On the paths we tread,
    Always fearlessly!

    M4: 😉 When do we see you on there?

    Serendipity: You missed dismemberment by a whisker at the last meeting, girl. 😛

    Shivani: Feel free. The India Helps e-mail address will be routed directly to Kiran. And yes, Aunty G is my favorite online person. 🙂

    sukanya: Thanks, Sukanya, do encourage your friends and family to visit.

    I did? 😦
    I was STUCK in traffic AND HOW. told’dja was on my way back from Manori right? Left the place at 2.30 to traverse an hr long journey and reach beforehand. So much for that. 😦

    A reply from you Aunty G
    Made me jump about & squee
    Your pithy limerick
    Has inspired this maverick
    Who thinks imitation is the best form of flattery


    *runs away fast, ashamed of bad rhyme attempted by self*

    Serendipity: It wasn’t your no-show. It was the choice of venue. You do know the place is self-service and one needs to hike up 3 flights with a tray to get to the terrace, right? 🙂

    Shivani: Keep at it! 🙂

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
