All that linger in my mind …

Happy July



Always  July is a special month for us. Our Darling son Mitesh was born on July 4, 2003. So July is always our favorite. This year he turns into 12. We are celebrating his birthday at an orphanage named ” Avvai Ashram “ at Sivasailam, Tamilnadu, India for the past 12 years. Really that moments are very precious for us. May God fulfil all your dreams & Happy Birthday my boy, Mithu !!!


July is the seventh month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and one of seven months with the length of 31 days. It was named by the Roman Senate in honor of the Roman general, Julius Caesar. Prior to that, it was called Quintilis.

It is on average the warmest month in most of the Northern hemisphere (where it is the second month of summer ) and the coldest month in much of the Southern hemisphere (where it is the second month of winter). The second half of the year commences in July. In the Southern hemisphere, July is the seasonal equivalent of January in the Northern hemisphere.
