I found this blog while researching for work. :) And this is my family. :) I think my grandma is the young lady on the extreme left in the middle row. And the contributor of the image is my cousin. :) Happiness.

I think I know your family Ambika – that is, if your Aunt and Uncle happen to be twins Terence and Doreen.
