This all started a year back when Sanjay Sinha turned to Facebook after the sudden demise of his younger brother. He started posting heartfelt incidents on Facebook and each of his posts focused on human relations and emotions.
Interestingly, at the initial stage there were only 28 friends in Sanjay’s friend list and in a short period of time, he made over 5000 friends. They share their experiencesand even their problems with each other albeit on a virtual platform.
Sanjay Sinha, the excited head of the family, said that every member of the family is really excited at the prospect. He further added that most of them have already booked their tickets. The entire event is being planned on FB and it is being hosted by his Facebook siblings.
