A Bit of Personal History On MDC Today

It was a picture perfect day in the Pacific Northwest today! Sunny skies always make me smile especially at the beginning of the work week:) Please bear with me, as I share some exciting news and a bit of personal history about my family on the blog today!

Today, India celebrated its 66th Republic Day. The President of The United States was in New Delhi as the chief guest at the Republic Day parade. This morning, I woke up to the news that The Prime Minister of India has given a special gift to President Obama. The gift happens to be a letter that has a direct link to my family. As you can imagine, I was thrilled to hear about this! 

The news was that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had gifted a piece of Indo-US history to President Obama. The gift was in the form of a copy of the first telegram from the United States to India's Constituent Assembly in 1946. The telegram was sent by the then Secretary of State Dean Acheson to Dr Sachchidananda Sinha, the Chairman of the Constituent Assembly of India. This is extremely personal for me as Dr Sachchidananda Sinha happens to be my Great Grandfather! My entire family is rather moved by this news especially my mom! My son who is in 4th Grade can't wait to share this news with his class :)

Here are a few lines from the telegram published on news channels " In the telegram, Acheson says: "With the approach of December 9, I extend to you as provisional chairman of the Constituent Assembly and through you to the Indian people the sincere good wishes of the United States Government and of the people of United States for a successful conclusion of the great task you are about to undertake."  The full details of the telegram can be found by clicking Here

I am sharing a few images of the event and pictures of the letter that was gifted to President Obama in New Delhi.

The telegram addressed to my Great Grandfather!

Its been quite a day to say the least :) A day filled with pride and emotion and one that I will remember forever!

A Los Angeles Home With Personality

I recently spotted the home of actor Matt Jones in Los Angeles. He is best known for his role as Badger on Breaking Bad.  Any big fan out there of the series?  The home has an  eclectic flair and is filled with unique accessories, vintage textiles and interesting furniture! 
For those of you who know me well, probably know what caught my attention is the turquoise chair :) To view pictures of the entire home click here!
