At last, I got the photos from our beloved Sai Prithvi, hence very late in posting this post.
After almost 2 months of conceiving and planning this get-together, we, Tata Elxsi-Chennai friends, decided to gather for a reunion with our families on 30-June-2013. We expected few more friends to join us, however, due their work locations and other unavoidable circumstances they could not join us this time. We had earlier met in 2010 for Gopi-Vrushali marriage and in 2011 for Manickam-Rekha marriage, but this was the first time for a get-together after we start disintegrating from TATA ELXSI from 2008.
We met at Fantasy Golf Resorts, near the Bangalore Airport. I was first to reach the place in order to receive Abirami with her family who came all the way from Chennai for this. Later Manickam and family, Vasanth, Sai Prithvi joined us. Little later, Gopi joined us with his family. Sai Prithvi reached Bangalore from Chennai a day before itself. A night before, I, Vasanth and Sai Prithvi watched Raanjhanaa at Cine Max, Soul Space Arena opposite Samsung in Outer Ring Road.
We started with a breakfast and had chit chats. It was great to rewind the days we had together at Tata Elxsi, Chennai. After Tata Elxsi time had flied. We played cricket, table tennis, golf, badminton, carrom etc. It was fun playing with Abirami's second daughter Deekshika, Manickam's son Advaith and Gopi's son Amartya. All the three kids made our day very memorable. I, Manickam, Vasanth, Gopi, Sai Prithvi jumped into the swimming pool. Mine and Gopi's swimming shorts were bit funny. We were in swimming pool for 45 minutes and then it was time for lunch.
We had a nice lunch and at around 2 p.m it was time for Abirami & Family to leave to Chennai via Vellore. Later, rest of us played carrom, badminton etc. We had a high tea and left the place with cherishable time.
Even now, when I write this blog after so many months, I feel happy and cherish the time with Deekshikha, Advaith and Amartya. I wish to carry this forward as a legacy. I am sure we would meet again once in 2-3 years.
