I have become an aunt over again. Over the years, I have cherished the special relationship of Aunt. Predictably, when news of my niece reached me, I was all agog.
What is it about a birth of baby that has us all excited? To me, it is the dimension that is added to you simply because of the richness of personality added into the mix. This little person holds within her love, strength, compassion, intelligence and many more qualities. She will enrich our lives by making herself a part of our lives.
For now, she sleeps placidly, while we wait for her to blossom into herself.
On the occasion of her birth, I listened to one of my favourite songs in Tamil – that of a daughter growing up too fast. The song put our complex thoughts into words, and that in turn put complex thoughts into my mind. I savoured the news of my niece and the beautiful song.
All in all, the news of my niece has put me in a state of joy. Welcome little one – this post is all I have to offer now, though my heart yearns to see you.
