Multigrain Biscuit

Biscuits and cookies are always everyone’s favourite. Multigrain biscuit is an healthier one when compared to other biscuits. Today is my dear parents’ wedding anniversary and I dedicate these heart- shaped biscuits to them. They are my backbone and strength.

Parents are the only persons  in this world who shower unconditional love upon us and whom we can trust completely. When we are sick, they ask us now and then about our health, when we are upset, they listen to us patiently. If there is no call from us, they will become restless. This kind of love and care can be showered only by our parents.  Nobody in this world can take their place. Sometimes, we live in this world, only for them.

I thank my dear amma appa for supporting and encouraging me in every single step I take. You always guide us but never dominate.  I started writing this  blog because of your support and encouragement. We are lucky and blessed to be your children. Nobody in this world can take your place.

Happy happy wedding anniversary from your children – Cheeru, Ranju and Krish…
