    Savi, Madhu,

    We went to Saheliyon ki baadi when I was in 11th std. There was a walkway that had sprays of water coming from both sides . The queen used to spend her hot summer afternoons there..:-) . I remember seeing a lot of peacocks everywhere .

    You look absolutely stunning in all the pics. Madhu is so-so…:-)…just kidding.

    You guys look so contented and relaxed…

    Prato.
