|Vaishali, JP, Komal & Tania|
I am back to Jalandhar after vacations in Delhi/Faridabad and Stockholm for about 7 weeks. It was a good time with our daughter Vaishali and JP and our grand daughters, Komal, a sober and scholarly and Tania, artistic and extrovert. Both Vaishali and JP have been very kind and caring. It was total relaxation and rest both at the outward and inward journeys to Sweden, our main destination of vacations. I have extensively written about our vacation in Stockholm with our son Naresh and his family in My Stockholm Diary in this blog.
I have started coming to my work at Jalandhar School of Careers and Opportunities with renewed vigor and charged batteries after a good vacation in Stockholm. It is still hot and humid with temperature at about 35 degree Celsius. Apart from weather, one immediate contrast with Swden which one notices is cleanliness. It is very unfortunate that our places are dirty. I only hope that PM Narendra Modi’s independence day plan to have Clean India (Sabach Bharat) takes shape and effect.
the day of our departure from Stockholm on August 16, a Punjabi Festival was
scheduled to be held in Stockholm on the
way to Arlanda airport. There is
story in the Tribune (August 22) about the Festival in Stockholm. I am happy to
learn that Sabhiachar Punjabi Mela in Stockholm has been started by a young man
of Jalandhar , Jay Kahlon, who is living
in Sweden and is an accomplished singer.
