It was an eventful day for THC's resident CCE which was capped off with an evening bash at the Platinum Point, Presidency Club, Chennai. The bash had thin attendance and only the following made it to the event Padmanabhan, Bhala, Rengaswamy, Dr Gaytahri Srikanth, VP, Ajeesh and self (as a surprise factor for the B'day boy) with the B'day boy and Mrs Gita Rishikesh. Appended below are some of the photographs.
