I missed the cut-off time for the last weekend blog, post Ramesh & Ashwini’s 25th wedding anniversary celebration at Alankrita resorts last Sunday evening.  Here is my ode to events from last week via this weekend’s blog.  One of my FB friends sent a private note to me, “Hey Sai, you seem to be having a fairy tale life”.  This is a comment I receive via many personal interactions too. It’s flattering to receive such remarks thanks to my posts on social media.

Here is my disclaimer :-).  Myself, my immediate family, and extended family all go through similar challenges as almost everyone out there, and deal with demons of all types within each of individual “self”, personal lives and professional lives and experience roller-coaster type of events almost every other day.  Some times, it feels like we have reached the breaking point too. Yet, we feel there is so much that’s there to be thankful and grateful to what life has offered and yet to offer to us.  My posts are reflection of that, and nothing more than that.  I also begin and end every week dealing with typical challenges of life, yet I attempt to capture precious moments that are worth sharing on my blog for both current and future generation out there.

Some of the gurus that I have interacted or followed always said, “Life is a game.  Just play it along, don’t take it too seriously”.  It also resonates with new scientific theory that was floated around and said, “Human race is an advanced simulated game by much advanced life out there somewhere in other universe”. There you go, don’t take life too seriously.  Both good stuff and not  so good stuff do not last forever.

Here is the collection awesome pics from Ramesh and Ashwini’s 25th wedding anniversary events, and 7 video clips documenting creative, funny, inspiring events from the family celebrations.

Ramesh Chintala and Ashwini Chintala celebrated their 25th “fairy tale” wedding anniversary amidst very close friends and family, at Alankrita Resorts. They celebrated this event, a week ahead of actual D-Date, to ensure participation from almost all family members and align with key calendars. It was an extra special for me, as I missed their original wedding when it happened in 1991, as I was in Houston just finishing up my college. Young couple once again have re-enacted few of moments from their wedding 25 years ago, and friends / families.

Sacred 7 Steps (one of the many events conceived and choreographed by the folks in the family). This one features almost everyone in the family from both Bride and Bridegroom side. Song is from “Muddapappu Avakai”, the first-ever web series in Telugu
