My Stockholm Diary - 21

With friends at home.
It, August 8, was a quite day at home and we lazed around.  Anju and Naresh are fully determined to make our every day enjoyable and relaxing. God bless them. They invited some friends home for dinner. Anju cooked and served a delicious vegetarian meal of Sag, Punjabi curry, Tindamasala, Masala idli and some more dishes. The dessert of mango and vanilla Kulfis made at home were really good. As usual these days, a long session of Teenpati made us sit for long. We enjoyed the evening. The weekend is again full. Today, August 9, we will again go to Uppsala for  dinner with  Jaya and Vijay Gupta, close friends of Anju and Naresh. We look forward to meet them.

August 8 is an important date in the contemporary history of India. On this day the Quit India Resolution was passed in 1942. It was the second most important stage in our struggle for independence after 1857. I watched the relevant programs on Doordarshan with interest and renewed my general knowledge. “Let every Indian consider himself freeman.” Mahatma Gandhi declared in his fiery “Do or Die” speech.
