They embraced each other and dined together.
They vowed to inspire the future generations and resolved to hold such family functions regularly. Family elders Dattu Sastry, Dr Sivaprasad Sastry, Santosha Sarma and Diwakar came forward to carry on the family traditions. The big and small had a gala time.
