Baby Parul

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 πŸ˜€ Discipline??? The onus lies with parents πŸ˜€

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. πŸ™‚ It became her favorite name since then. πŸ™‚

It also means “Practical, beautiful, gracious”.

    to be a mashi is wonderful..i myself am an only child so i only get to be a mashi for my hubbys siblings kids..but thats great fun..but they r unfortunatly away in the us..and south of germany which we cant visit so often 😦

    Baby Parul looks so so adorable! Absolutely precious!

  5. congratulations on getting promoted to ‘mashi’ πŸ™‚ The proverb is lovely πŸ™‚

    And look at the angel…she looks so pretty…muuuuwah to the doll πŸ™‚

    Heartiest congratulations to the family Reema πŸ™‚

  6. Oh Maaa! Choooo chweet! Such a cutie pie πŸ™‚

    … And she is a spitting image of Reema mashi. That should double rather triple or quadruple the indulgence πŸ™‚

    P.S. Thanks for the link on the ‘saat bhai chompa’ story. Parul is such a beautiful name. Why does it have to be: Pseudocalymma alliaceum, Bignonia alliacea, Mansoa alliacea, Bignonia aequinoctialis, etc… ???

  7. Auntie Reema Auntie Reema! I am so happy for you! I love all of my nieces and nephews although they are getting too big to care much about me…

    I wish I could figure out a way to join you in the spoiling process of our beautiful Parul. I love the name! I’ll tell the story to my babies someday.
