Today is special for two reasons: first of all, it is Independence Day in India, meaning that celebrations have been going on all over this vast land; and, second, it's Alice's mum's birthday. Alice, one of our VMs, is currently working hard in the village of Hagranahalli and sends the following message...
"Happy Birthday Mum! I hope you're having a great day! I look forward to seeing you in Kerala in a few weeks' time! Lots of love, Alice xx"
|Alice and one of the masons, hard at work.|
I might recommend to you, Mrs Alice's mum, that you bring her a selection of the finest chocolate biscuits or other confectionery that you can lay your hands on, because she's been a fantastic VM for us here at Raleigh and will have earned her dose of sugary treats several times over by the time you see her. May I also take the opportunity to wish you a happy birthday too!
