BE­LATED BIRTH­DAY

India Today - - MAIL -

Prime Min­is­ter Man­mo­han Singh didn’t cel­e­brate his birth­day on Septem­ber 26 as he was on his way to Wash­ing­ton from Frank­furt. So a be­lated birth­day card from the jour­nal­ists ac­com­pa­ny­ing him was fi­nally handed to him on Oc­to­ber 7. Quite un­like his col­league Ku­mari Selja, Union min­is­ter for so­cial jus­tice and em­pow­er­ment. In New York to rep­re­sent In­dia at the United Na­tions Fo­rum on Dis­abil­ity and De­vel­op­ment on Septem­ber 24, she got a call from the In­dian am­bas­sador to the UN. Selja was in­formed that a group of dis­abled chil­dren wanted to meet her. When she said yes, the chil­dren en­tered her room singing Happy Birth­day. Sweet.
