A Star Amongst Us

Dear friends, it is my proud privilege and honor to present the star amongst us – hold your breaths – tantanraaannn – here she comes!

Svkuki, as a member of Mother India’s Crochet Queens, is officially amazing. She was part of a largely Chennai based group who came together to make a crochet blanket of 5000 sq m but ended up making one that was 11148 sq m in size – and this despite the floods which threw everything out of gear.

But did they miss their target or deadline? No definitely not. They not only got their Guinness world record certificate but even more importantly their hard work and effort will help provide warmth to the needy and poor. Click here for the video

Now on to the more mundane business of the day – Chapter 27 and Calvin


Thought for the day: If you don’t like the way the world is, you change it. You have an obligation to change it. You just do it one step at a time :- Marion Wright Edelman

By the way please do check out the Index for Posts where I have included links to all posts (other than Short Stories and Moonshine) on this blog – just in case you missed some really cool pics big grin

Look forward to hearing from you on anything and everything.

Until next time…

  1. Heyy Dahlia, I really feel like a star now after reading your write-up!! To tell you the truth, 31st Jan 2016 is a date that will stay with me forever. The moment when the adjudicator of The Guinness Records Mr. Pravin Patel announced the no. was the most memorable one for all of us. We just blew up!! Love our signature “officially amazing”!!
    Thank you so much for your wonderful gesture. Another thanks is due to you and Mymind for having prodded me onto taking up this challenge, when I was hesitating due to certain concerns… thanks to both of you 🙂 🙂 V V
