Thanksgiving – Roy Family Style
Usually, Thanksgiving in the Roy family means going abroad somewhere as a family. We do not have any kith or kin outside of India to speak of. And Sharmila’s birthday is usually a few days away (no more anniversary wishes please!!). That makes it a good excuse to bond together as a family as well as celebrate Sharmila’s birthday somewhere nice.
This Thanksgiving is a little different. We are spread all over the world spending time with an extended definition of family.
Sharmila is in India to spend some time with her mother (we lost my father in law a couple of months back).
Natasha is in Ghana spending time studying and looking after orphans in a school which has become her new family.
Jay Jay is with his friends in the USA.
Nikita and I are in the Dominican Republic spending time with each other and our closest family friends in Atlanta – the Mukherjees!
This year is a virtual Thanksgiving for us!!
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!!
