How do you react when a two year old who has just started talking with a cute and small voice sing, “kaang-se-thamoida-chik-e” meaning,”this mosquito is biting at my heart” ? Nearly fell off my bed laughing. That’s my niece, Ankita over the phone. She goes to a creche and is believed to have picked up the song from there. What song and what lyrics! Hoho haaa…ha ha ...
Need to plan a holiday soon to meet this bundle of joy.
Marriage has changed my brother for the better. Infact, it has done wonders. My long-haired brother was a nightmare to all the kids in the neighbourhood (including me), strict and short tempered and it was such a lovely sight to see him play with Ankita, change her diapers not to forget his neatly trimmed hair, the last time I went home.
He used to keep changing girfriends, dumping or getting dumped often the later but after meeting my sis-in-law, he had to leave all that in the past, change his ways and literally chase her down the proverbial ‘aisle’.
Mom had told him once over lunch in front of all the siblings, “Don’t flirt with someone you don’t want to go around with, don’t go around with someone whom you don’t want to marry. Life has a way of taking u-turns, you often end up with what you never planned. I will be happy if someone loves you back truly, you’ll learn to give.”
He chose his love and is loving his choice- that’s marriage for my brother.
Cheers and best wishes to some of the newly weds, Pompy, Stone, Romila, Shalini, Anita.
