After a hectic four days and a series of back-to-back meetings, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh spends a quiet day in New York on Saturday with his family, visiting his third daughter Amrit who lives in New York.

Amrit is a staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties' Union. She works on the Immigrant Rights' Project. Singh came to New York with his wife Gursharan Kaur and second daughter Daman, a consultant with The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) in New Delhi. His eldest daughter Upender teaches at St Stephen's College in New Delhi.

Singh leaves for New Delhi on Sunday morning. After stopping overnight in Geneva, he reaches New Delhi on Monday night.

Incidentally, Sept 26 happens to be his official birthday and his aides plan to have a celebration aboard Air-India One, the prime minister's special aircraft.

Singh had told journalists on his way from New Delhi to London that he was not aware of the exact date of his birth in Gah, a little village in Punjab province of Pakistan, as his mother died within weeks of his birth, and that Sept 26 was what was entered for the school records by his family.

Singh has been spending a long time every day, particularly in the evenings, attending to files and governance and communicating with his office in New Delhi.
