Birthdays are always special - but for a 85-year-old woman living alone in Mumbai, they hold a special significance. For her, the guests to her birthday celebrations aren't her family or friends - but the Mumbai police! And it's been that way for four years running now.
On her 85th birthday, cops from Matunga police station visited her residence with a cake to celebrate her birthday. Sharing a tweet, the Mumbai police explained how it was their "Favorite day of the year," and they were glad to be spending it with "Mom’ Lalita ji."
