So I am back from my trip to Ahmedabad and Delhi. Well it has been one and half week but you know the law of inertia Of course, travel posts on my travel blog and reblogs here will be posted. Oh God I have so many pending posts to write – Mysore, Pondicherry, Mahabalipuram, Ahmedabad and New Delhi – that my laziness grows! Anyway so here are some updates.
# Met my dearest niece and had the most wonderful time ever!! Among so many relatives (aliens for her) including grandparents of both sides at home for the first time, she took a liking to her Mashi only!! That also took two days! And the secret to make her come to you is to ignore her initially so that she is convinced you are not a threat. Ahhh the moment she stretched her little arm towards me and crawled to come into my arms! Pure Bliss! So I was the only who could enjoy her company fully
My mobile Nokia music express played an instrumental role in sealing the bond further. She loves music and sways to the rhythm and grunts if someone talks during the song! So I used to play songs and she would sit in my lap sway and sometimes nod off. She recognizes so many things and when asked points to them correctly! For example clock, calendar, light, fan, ears, nose (which I taught!) etc. And see how perfectly she holds a pen naturally without anyone teaching her!!
It has heart wrenching to see her off knowing it may be years before I hold her in my arms again.
# Visiting Ahmedabad and Delhi in May was torturous! Still we managed to sight-see around the cities. Didn’t like both the cities as compared to namma Bengaluru! Delhi’s water made us all sick with gastro problems. Poor Parul had such a bad time and lost so much weight. More about the cities in the upcoming travel posts.
# The first flight experience – awesome! The field of clouds, the view of the setting sun up above in the sky, the trees, the rivers and the green fields..sigh! It is a pity they don’t let you use electronic devices while taking off and landing.
# Finally, after months of searching and comparing, we zeroed in and added a new member to our family. Wait for it…..Ford Figo Titanium (Diesel) Squeeze color
D is so happy and excited much more than I! Men and their cars!
# Rains have arrived in Bangalore and I am loving it!! Mangoes are giving the (only) pleasure of summer yet the rains are keeping the temperature down. Wonderful!
# Will get back to reading your blogs now Ciao!
