50th birthday for a brother-in-law par excellence

Our family has experienced many spiritual blessings. And all other things have been added unto us as well.

Back home in Madurai, yesterday was an important day. It was my brother-in-law’s birthday. We wished we could have been there instead of here in Auckland. But it helped that our niece sent us pictures.
