Couple of weeks back, the picnic of our extended family made a grand start of 2019. The elders started with new year's greetings as they settled in the greens of CLGC - an oasis of trees, flowers with a backdrop of vintage cottage withing the busy traffic of central Kolkata. The winter sun was pleasant treat in the outdoor setting - a cosy picnic set-up with tea coffee and snacks to start with. Then started the impromptu performances followed by risking the traditional swings after decades. After sometime we all sat in a circle to enjoy a visual quiz organized by Santanu. Lunch was a delayed for many - but that is typical in a picnic. Having elaborate menu sitting together in outdoor setup made all our beloved elders radiate with joy. It was the best ambiance with the best people in a great weather - everything went in our favour to make this picnic memorable for all.
