Isn't this group picture just heartwarming? We can feel all the love and positivity wrapped up in one frame. Sonali wrote a beautiful caption for this picture, "Sunday to Sunday... there’s a lot that can happen in just 7 days! From a wedding celebration, to a required course of hospitalisation and treatment to a leisurely lunch with friends that are family... you have to let go to experience the many shades of life! #Thankful #MyNewNormal #OneDayAtATime #SwitchOnTheSunshine."
Sussane also posted the same with a caption that said, "So Easy like Sunday morning... celebrating sabbath ♥️ (the day of the week for rest and restoration) ..#grattitude #mytribe #springbreakstarts."

I once saw my grandmother tie a knot on the tail of her saree’s pallu. As a curious child, I asked her why she did it. She said she couldn’t remember everything all the time, so this knot would keep reminding her what she needs to do. I want you to also do this today. Tie a knot and take a pledge to share your #MujheSabNahiPata #IDidntKnow stories. Your story could help another mother be better prepared. I nominate @ruchitarambles and @chandrama_poetry to tie the protection knot and share their stories #MujheSabNahiPata @allout
