My aunt’s 60th birthday

 

 

Today is my aunt Farida’s 60th birthday bash right here in Ilford, so I’m closing up Gifville early for the day and am off to scoff cake and give my diet a headache. If it’s your big B-day today, well, happy birthday yo’ lucky self. Much love!

My 33rd birthday – 3

 

Just got home, had dinner and switched on my laptop to find Google has wished me a happy birthday with this cute GIF of candles you see above. I just want to say thanks to my family and friends for all the lovely messages, texts, posts, calls and chit-chats I got today. I appreciate each and every one.

Navratri with Hemant Chauhan and fans

 

A GIF I ripped from video footage of a Navratri dance held at the Lakewood Marquee in Barkingside, England in October 2016 alongside a concert with Gujarati ras garba singer Hemant Chauhan. This captures beautifully the sea of dancers edging across under a sea of starry lights.
