Lisa Ray shares a throwback picture of herself at three, and writes, ‘My daughters’ 2nd birthday is coming up.’
‘The ability to rejoice during difficult times is the hallmark of the human spirit.
‘My husband has told me childhood stories of bombs falling during dinner parties in Beirut, where the guests would dive under the table and toast each other once they emerged and the danger had passed.
‘We all have it in us to celebrate life’s contradictions. And here’s me at three.
‘I can still taste the crunch of the first bite of that layered Polish biscuit cake. Lao Tzu once said: “What is childhood but the memory of particular tastes?”‘

Lara Dutta shares a throwback picture with her grandfather and writes, ‘My grandpa Storey would have been 100 years old today!
‘A gentle giant. A man of principle. A man of few words. And the kindest grandpa ever!!
‘I will always treasure my walks with him every Sunday afternoon to the Brothers Bakery, in Whitefield, Bangalore, to buy pastries for tea.
‘He truly told the best Stories! #alwaysmissed #alwaysloved.
‘Every year after his passing, on his birthday, my mum would feed the poor. She physically can’t do that anymore. Hence for her, in this time of crisis, I’m going to do that for her today.
‘We may have already donated to various funds, but ask yourself if there is anymore you can give?
‘Any saving that you can sacrifice, for a greater good. I’m going to do that.’
