During our Dubai days, every year we used to celebrate the arrival of new year with family and friends getting together, going out on 31st night, outside the city to a villa or a resort, with 10/12 families, Welcome the New Year, have food, fun, cut cake, games, Eventually after 3 or 4am when every one tired sleep for a while Then get op 6/7 am, again play games outside. Normally we have breakfast and then disperse. One time, we even went to a villa with a swimming pool and the next morning, i,e, 1st January, swimming session for 2/3 hours and then leave. Years pass, some have left, new group formed and the Welcome New Year celebrations continued for some more years. Eventually we were also relocated to Bengaluru in 2010.

We slept in Udaya's house for the night and next morning, after breakfast, left for Birthi, Salekeri. Since we had Sujatha's car, it was very comfortable to move around.
