7th April of 1971 dawned on us brightly with a touch of serenity and sublime humidity left by the preceding night’s squally gusts of wind which left many giant trees uprooted, branches broken and baby mangoes strewn all over.

The garden and the surrounding area were damp, and droplets of water remained embedded on tree leaves and grasstops like glowing emerald.
