18th September was a day of celebration and contemplation in our family. Remembering the last year, celebrating birthdays of close friends and relations, remembering friends and family that the past year has taken away from us and yet, a general thankful ushering of Fall. After a very stressful year, we decided to give thanks by making sandwiches. It was enjoyable, from purchase of ingredients ("You gonna feed the village?" ) to continual sanitizing of countertop, and to the incessant changing of gloves to make sure that the jelly was not going all over the place. Our 7 year old was in charge of packaging the ziplocked sammies and I must say she rocked it. A most satisfactory afternoon all in all. We definitely want to do it again, though we probably will have to wait a year before we get a chance! Thank you TNID for this opportunity!

Every year the Srivastava family seeks to support a worthy cause in memory of our Baba/Papa/Papaji, Mr. Prem Chand Srivastava (Jaideep’s father). This year, we were grateful to support the Teen Hygiene Donation program through the NeedInDeed organization. It is most appropriate to support our city’s youth in our grandfather/father’s memory, as he was well known to help educate youth among his family, friends and neighborhoods. A scientist and educator, he helped numerous middle and high school aged youth from near and far gain fundamental understanding of subjects like math and science. Therefore, we are very happy and grateful for this opportunity to help youth served by YouthLinks in his memory, through NeedInDeed. We are certain that he is blessing all of us, and especially the youth served by YouthLinks!
