All happy occasions are celebrated in India with a whole lot of sweets. Be it weddings or birthdays, desserts are an integral part of any function. And it is almost a custom to share sweet treats with loved ones every time they gather under one roof for a get-together. Cricketer Harbhajan Singh and his wife, actress Geeta Basra, who recently welcomed their son Jovan Veer, did something similar to this. They sent a whole lot of love packed in boxes to their friends to mark the arrival of their second child. The happy couple also attached an adorable note to make it extra special. The pictures of the oh-so-beautiful goodie box were shared by actress Neha Dhupia and Mika Singh on Instagram Stories.
