By next year, the Maniams may have an additional family member to taste Mak's curry. Picture of Chitdrakantan's engagement last month, taken from his FB, without permission, as usual
One of my best friends in school, Vicky, lives a stone's throw from Batu Caves. We played footy together at school, were class-mates right up to Standard Six and spent a lot of our teenage years eating thosai, nasi lemak and roti canai.
Loose cannon do get a number of invitations for Deepavali dos from all over the country, mostly from sports officials, athletes and friends. Time and location however do not permit. Humble apologies. S.S. Dhaliwal, whose parents reside in Tampin, also extends his Deepavali invite on a yearly basis.
There was one year when the whole Malay Mail sports desk, with a few exceptions, travelled to Tampin for Satwant's deepavali dinner. Also present were Mirnawan Nawawi and Chua Boon Huat. How time flies.
Happy Deepavali, Happy Diwali. And may there be light at the end of our sports tunnel!
