Plans…

Next month is Pari’s B’day.. I have been thinking about how to celebrate her b’day from last 2 months… Have attended some b’day parties and gathered the ideas to celebrate her b’day. But then finally on her dear friend Dino’s b’day, I realized that she is very shy, and doesn’t like to mingle much with people.She will hide behind my back when she meets many people. So, i thought of rather skipping the traditional B’day celebrations this year .. and make it a memorable day .. with only her closest friends. rather than inviting all the apartment complexes people.. with whom she is not much comfortable, I have been torturing her for past 2 years.

Finally I am done with my plans for this Year
