Rotary Club of Hornchurch and Upminster
Home | International Service Committe | Jaipur Limb Centre Indian Feast
On Sunday, October 4, Subhash and Seema opened their home to an Indian feast in aid of the Jaipur Limb Centre
If you want to win the lottery I suggest you sit next to Subhash at the next Rotary lunch because as one of our members commented to me " That man sure is lucky".
He was of course referring to the weather . On Saturday the 3rd. the weather could not have been much more unpleasant for the time of year, very windy, overcast and pretty miserable and on the following Monday† ( although we weren't to know this at the time) we had an equally miserable day. Yet here we were on Sunday the 4th sitting in Subhash's back garden eating the glorious Indian food that Seema had provided, basking in glorious sunshine. I know one had to be a little selective as to where one's chair was positioned, as there was a definite nip in the air if you sat in the shade, but those who chose carefully were quite comfortable. With the lake in the background providing the water, the relaxed atmosphere and the sun it was like sitting on deck during a cruise only without the rocking. (Editor's poetic licence) Whilst I ramble on about cruises I should mention the conversation I overheard between Pat Haines and Ray Leach. She was thanking him profusely for the advice he had given her as to overcoming motion sickness. †(Raymond is of course, along with big Al Thomas, our cruise expert. He has been on so many that he's even got his own captain's hat that he wears at all times when at sea, on land he wears his Kiss Me Quick hat) Anyway it was something along the lines of 'going with the motion', needless to say I closed my ears at this point. I do not want to appear 'catty' but I thought I overheard Jim telling someone that he'd taken Pat out on a pedalo during their holiday in Spain, but I may have got that wrong.
Anyway enough of the gossip and back to the garden party. What a great success it was . Not only were we blessed with the weather, we had wonderful food and some great fellowship not only with our fellow Rotarians but with the many friends of Subhash and Seema.
Having had to cancel the original party due to the ill health of his son it was only right and fitting that everything should go so well on this re-arranged date.
THANK YOU BOTH VERY MUCH FOR A WONDERFUL DAY
