Thank you God for blessing my Didi and Jiju with a baby girl!
Baby Parul born on 13 March 2011.
Only an Aunt can give hugs like a mother, can keep secrets like a sister
and share love like a friend ~ Spanish Proverb.
Glad to have become one! I have become “Reema Mashi” !! Yeyyyy!!!!
I fear I will be a very indulgent and spoiling aunt😀 Discipline??? The onus lies with parents😀
I am so so happy!!!
P.S. Parul is a five-petaled flower known for its beauty. It is also a female name of Hindu origin. The name also appears in a Bengali folk tale. The story and the flower Parul also feature in Tagore’s Rabindra sangeet. The folktale is called Seven Champa Brothers and One Sister Parul. (Click on the name to read the story)
Our Maa used to tell the story almost daily while trying to feed Didi as a kid. It became her favorite name since then.
It also means “Practical, beautiful, gracious”.
