Old is Gold. So goes the popular saying.
And it is rightly so.
I have been living in Faridabad for more than two decades. and for almost that time i have been part of a Kitty party group.It is a friendly lot of neighborhood friends who used to meet every first Tuesday of the month, from 4 pm to 6 pm. Until recently the day got shifted to First Wednesday. The reason being one of the members had started fasting on Tuesdays.
It was the last kitty of the cycle. and it was at my home. As per rules it should have been on 4th of March. But since i had traveled to Bangalore i shifted it to Saturday. it was much later that i realized that the scheduled day was 8th march, Women's day.
I decided to keep a small surprise. After two rounds of Tambola , just before the snacks started i brought in a candle lit cake. The one in the picture.
We had already greeted each other Happy Women's day on arrival and the surprise coke added to that special feeling. Immediately the living room reverberated with happy claps.
It was decided that the oldest lady would cut the cake. When there was a doubt as per the seniority, two ladies together held the knife and cut the cake.
There was a feeling of sisterhood, celebration and sheer joy that for the first time the kitty friends were celebrating WOMEN"s Day.
The usual; one or two jokes stretched on to an odd eight and more.
suddenly everyone was up beat. It was decided that apart form the monthly get together we would have outings in restaurant. As many women in the group drive it would be no problem to reach the decided location.
More suggestions were invited and it was decided that we would hire a bus and go on a one day tour. Incidentally this was my suggestion and it was met with sheer excitement.
I am so glad i was in Bangalore on the 4th. Thanks to my trip women's day got celebrated in my home.
Thanks to my hubby who got me all the grocery AND the cake while i was arranging for the kitty party.
It was one rocking Kitty party with new resolutions and it was decided to raise the kitty money too.
None of my kitty friends Blog, but we are a close knit group off women who have seen out kids grow up together.
Old id indeed GOLD. A lovely WOMEN"S day 2014 it is!
