Sangita Ohri was the first friend I made in LaMartiniere in '76. She used to collect postcards and I, Binaca toys. Apparently we made a swap. I gave her this bunch of postcards which she has kept safely for 30 years till now. Can't say the same about those Binaca toys though. She left school in '78 and I met her in Bangalore after all these years. We had a super time catching up and she handed these postcards back to me. She'd noticed that some of the postcards were addressed to a Miss Pushpa Shanbag and postmarked 1961. I handed them back to Pa and Ma yesterday. Took these photos to share with you two.

Uma has got everyone wrapped around her little finger. Her Abu has made his first painting since leaving school just for her - The sheep was made by him. Amamma who is no stranger to painting but it has been a while made the rubber ducky, Nanda masi, a first for her too, the tortoise and her Mummy, the artist painted the cow.
References for these are from her baby books so that she connects them to what she will be reading. It was nice to see everyone sitting down to make these and I hope Uma likes them especially the thought behind them - we love you moomsie! The canvases are 8" by 6" and water based oil paints have been used.
