Two days back our Buffalo family -Madhubala, Madhuwanti, Madhukauns and the little darling Padmavati, played truant and did not return home.A search until it turned dark proved futile, we spent a tense night, and at daybreak we continued our search.We came upon this captivating scene during our search.

So much Grace!
