I CELEBRATED my birthday with a visit to the Bahá'í Temple in New Delhi. It was my last day in the city, where I spent the passing week setting up the displays for the newest store of Shopper's Stop. Visiting the temple is always a refreshing joy: not only do I have the spiritual recharge, I get to visit the book shop! I brought two of my fellow workers with me; I hope their first-ever visit to the temple moved them.
The day ended with Southeast Asian dinner with two good friends at the ITC Grand Maratha Sheraton Hotel. It was rather pricey, but how often do you get to spend this much in a year? It was good and quiet fun, exactly the way I want my birthdays to be now that I'm middle-aged!
