Mumbai Series: The Season of Giving



Celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.
Christmas Decorations at Damian in Bandra, Mumbai

It’s been a very toasty Christmas out here in Mumbai, quite the contrary to the imagined ideal – opening gifts by the Christmas tree on a cold Christmas morning. I wanted to take this time to reiterate the importance of giving. Living in Mumbai for the last one month has made me understand and value the small pleasures that grace us in life – spending quality time with family and pampering them with affection and insurmountable love and care so that they realize that they are esteemed and important members of our lives.

With 2014 now just around the corner, I wanted to ask you all to do me a small favour. This season lets try something new, it’s not hard, I can assure you that much. Lets lend a smile to someone who might not have had a good day or maybe even share a laugh with someone who feels either lost or fray. You could even give someone a helping hand, one or maybe two. And remind them that tomorrow is another day to start anew.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Heathy and Prosperous New Year.
