The Hyderabad Golf Club was the hub of festive action and some high flying with kites
The week began with Archana and Alok Jaju‘s 25th wedding anniversary celebrations. The duo relived the entire wedding complete with all the rituals of a marriage – from a south Indian saptapadi to the north Indian mehendi, friends and family who gathered where happy to see a couple who wanted to marry again, and of course, to the same person.
The Sankranti flavours were evident, thanks to the long weekend. The Hyderabad Golf Club (HGC) and the Old City reverberated with kite-flying jargon. Manjula, in her English hat and glares and denims, along with her friends was determined to enjoy every bit of the fest. Preethi Rao Errabelli, popular in the circle for her taste in colours and designs, was spotted wearing an orange outfit befitting the festive spirit in the air.
Sridevi and her son Milan, dressed in green and blue outfits respectively, proved to be a cool mom-son combination.
Meanwhile the Tablers decided to try out a new concept of meeting up. Round Table 186 organised its monthly meet in a spa format with hot Hyderabadi Biryani in conjunction with de-stress acupressure foot and shoulder massages at Meghavi while they discussed their upcoming activities for social development. While Dhiraj and Rajiv brought in the summery touch through their khakis, Anju in her blue dress was a stunner. Dressed in aqua green and heels, Shalini looked fabulous.
All in all, the Hyderabadis reflected a fusion of shades of summer and winter along with flavours of the ethnic and modern in their appearances and vibes.
