Jyotiraditya's First Birthday

Pictures of my son's first birthday on March 21, 2005. We cut a cake at home. Had a party the same weekend. See the website ( for more photographs.

Bablu on his 2st birthday

Jyotiraditya Satpathy, my 1 year old son on his first birthday.

Bablu and the matchbox

Jyotiraditya's first birthday cake. He was more interested in the matchbox than in the cake, which incidentally was from ICRISAT.

The candle on the cake

The candle flame was of course even more interesting and he desperately wanted to have a go at trying to touch it.

Cutting the cake

Finally. Time to cut the cake! Helped by elder sister Durgesh Nandini and mother Padmaja.

The cake was yummy

The chocolate cake was yummy. The orange stuff on my forehead is sindur from the Hanuman temple.
