Nehru by Shashi Tharoor

Dear George

Congratulations on turning 25! A number significant not just in cricket, but also in Indian philosophy as it denotes the phase in one’s life when one passes from the brahmacharya ashram to the griahastha ashram. That is to say from the supposedly austere, disciplined and celibate life of a student to the dutiful life of a ‘householder’ – fulfilling his duties to his spouse, children, aged parents and the community!

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday

Warm regards
