Sir, there were a lot to process in my brain. The lot of breakfast and dinner discussions about our uncertainties - made me only look for information when to move forward. But I must confess by now, I've lost track of which day or date it was!!

Sorry for OT, but your stars were good that day as it was not your wife's birthday or not your anniversary.

OR you would have got a simple "COME BACK HOME OR ELSE" call

Yes! Happy Birthday to me! Stuck at Kaaza, on an expedition, whiling away the time, uncertainties forward - I do not know what to think. Stay positive my mind said. Yeah!! Stay Positive.

So with a complex thought and feeling in my mind, on my birthday I go to the highest village in the world.

Hey! You got to go to the highest village in the world on your birthday? Lucky guy! - The ego systems started working. Probably cheered me up too!!
Belated Happy Birthday, Lalu.
I wish we had known at that time - we could have extracted the evening dinner out of your purse!!!

Thank You Sir.
But I have told you and the team.

But you had many issues to tackle, and extracting an evening dinner from me would have been the last in your list

Kaaza - Langza - Komic - Hikkim - Kaaza


I was thinking about the fossils being available in Komic also. I was planning to check the stream bed for some. I was not able to get any last day in the hunt, though TS was quite lucky in getting some. I told my wish to NJ and JP. JP immediately asked NJ to stop and without getting out of the Bolero hands me this!!

Two boys had been waiting for us on the street and wanted to give us this. In return we gave them a Milky Bar. They were quite happy. It's unfortunate I don't have their pictures. It was raining and they were not on my side of the car.

My Second Birthday Gift : The Fossils

I was happy like a child who had got his long cherished dream come true. Little did I know then my third birthday gift is due soon.
