Overtaking Anand

Overtaking Anand

Anand, quite delighted at being overtaken.

At the stroke of midnight, as the minute hand of the clock gave one final twitch and sailed into the 2nd of November 2009, a momentous occasion was reached. This is the culmination of many years’ effort by Divya, and a stupendous effort it has been. Finally, now, she has reached and exceeded a crucial milestone in life. At times, it seemed as if the progress was just inching along, at other times advancing by leaps and bounds. But now, today, Divya turns a year older and finally overtakes Anand in age.

Anand, as many of you know, is our local Peter Pan, the boy who never ages. Well, although he actually never ages, Anand graciously would concede a year or two once in a few years, just to be part of the rest of our rapidly aging community. Now, equally graciously he has conceded. Divya is older than him, and that is how it is going to be from now on.
