Without taking a break from his official duties and surrounded by changing crowd as usual, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy crossed his 69th birthday and entered his seventies on Wednesday.

He went to the church at Nanthencode, near his official residence, along with family members and offered prayers in the morning. By the time he arrived at the Cliff House, Speaker G Karthikeyan arrived to offer birthday wishes.

Though family members including wife Mariyamma maintained that nothing has been planned as a sort of celebration, the air was filled with a merry mood of his supporters including MLAs who were in the Cliff House.  ‘’I’ve been into this at a very young age. Even if I want to, I don’t think that I can change it now,’’ Chandy said jokingly. ‘’I’m 69 years now,’’ he said.

The mood was not lost in the KPCC headquarters either, as activists cut a cake with president Ramesh Chennithala giving the lead, in the presence of  V M Sudheeran and other leaders, and shared it with Oommen Chandy. All of  them had assembled for commemorate the 28th martyrdom of Congress stalwart and late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. After the function, it was a normal day for Chandy, though he was caught in between by Mahila Congress activists in the Secretariat with bouquets and shawls.
