19 Years Ago…

19 Years Ago…

19 years ago… The Engine whistled and the train pulled to a stop. I got down from my compartment to be met with a crowd of people who wanted to wish me well – for I had a Daughter! My First Born! It was just like my best dream – I have a daughter? I am a father? “Holy Cow”! When did that happen! I now have two girls in my life! Thank the Gods! Both are well. Healthy and…

Rakhi, August 20, 2013

Rakhi, August 20, 2013

Rakhi! That time of year again when sisters tie a thread on their brother’s wrist, a sign of their affection and love, and of the bond that ties sisters and brothers together through life. These photos were taken on Rakhi (August 20, 2013) at our home in Juhu, Mumbai. In it our daughter, Mamli, prays for her younger brother, Bablu and ties her Rakhi on his wrist. She also performs the same for her sisters-in-absentia – Meghu & Chikoo, my…

Bablu’s Home Coming

Bablu’s Home Coming

The Wait I don’t know which of the three of us, Padmaja, Mamli and I, was waiting for the new baby with the most anticipation. Mamli wanted her baby brother very badly. And had been preparing for the arrival for some time. Padmaja & I knew that it was a boy and not a girl as we had thought earlier. She overheard the Doctor instructing two juniors during her last ultrasound and came to me asking about testes 🙂 Mamli…

April 18 – Day 8 – The Return to the Plains Today we return to the heat, dust & polution of the plains. Gangtok was pollution free most of the time. We had asked the travel agent in Siliguri who had rented us the cab on the journey from Siliguri to Gangtok to send us a car at Gangtok. The car was to arrive at 12.00 noon. We had planned to stop mid way to go river rafting in the…

Gangtok Trip – Day 7 – Walking In Gangtok

April 17 – Day 7 – Walking in Gangtok Today, the last day of our 3 full days in Gangtok, we had kept aside for the city of Gangtok itself. We haven’t seen the Flower Exhibition, the Handicrafts and Handloom Museum and a few other places. We had a leisurely breakfast in the Mintokling Guest House restaurant. The service was bad, the prices high and the food passable. We had stayed away from the guest house restaurant on purpose because…
