My Little Brother – Vishu

Here is a pic of my little brother Vishwesh Lad a.k.a. Vishu, son of Mrs. Vaibhavi Lad. He was again and again asking me to put his photo on computer. Here it is:


We were in Goa to attend my sister Pallavi’s wedding ceremony on 19th May 2006. At that time, I took this snap using my Sony Ericsson W800i mobile. I croped the image little to cut the date and time and reduced little image quality to cut down image size. Original size on disk was 64KB, now it’s only 32KB.
