Little drops of heaven..

This Diwali has been so very special for quite a few of my friends. Four of my friends had babies and all 4 are girls :) and one another friend has adopted a baby girl :)))Sooooooooo happy for them :) I think the below lines from "Abhiyum Naanum" song sweetly summarises their feelings

"Thandhaikkum Thaai
Anbu Suranthathammaa
En Thangaththai
Maarbodu Anaikkaiyiley "

(Ajcl/athivasi pls translate for Swaram :) )

I think i am way too partial when it comes to girl kids :) Would love to have one in my family soon. I wish by next year my sis also joins the list :) Me eagerly waiting for my neice/nephew.

That song which i have mentioned above from that movie is so very dear to me. I can see my dad in Prakashraj. My dad was CCP version of his character. My sis was the apple of his eye. He always respected her opinion and was so proud of her achievements. My dad never liked anyone interfering in his work. If he does any task be it cleaning the house or preparing decorations for Golu he would simply refuse any help and would always want to do things of his own, barring my sis. She was one person who had the veto over him :) She used to stay awake late night to take care of him when he was unwell. And justly, She was the one who was with him when he breathed his last while i was 300 miles away :( Till the time i came she didnt even cry and was consoling my mom and broke down only after seeing me.

Today i see the reflection of my dad in her. The same decisive nature, strictness, boldness, creativity, stubborness and friendly nature ..ditto :) My dad had lots of friends and the entire street, where we stayed, knew him personally. I used to joke that if he stood as councillor in my locality he would win hands down. Same applies to my sis. Whichever bank she gets transfered to, the staff would simply adore her and obey her command. She is the darling of my family and would always be my first kid.

I think how much ever one might debate, women have always been the strong stronger strongest of the sexes. Male egoes might take a bruising but the ultimate truth is undeniable :)

This is such a heartfelt post!
Its so nice to know they all hd daughters and kudos to the couple who went in for adoption :)

Fathers and daughters always share a special bond which is inexplicable!

N its so nice to read the last lines u have written abt women Gils! Most chauvinists would say No! Hats off!

It reminds me of the quote again 'It does not mean u have to hate men to love women' :)

Thanks for the translation Savi! Lovely lines :) Got to listen to the original track now :)

Hw nice to know the bond b/w ur Dad n Sis and one brave girl she is :) Hugs to her!

I hd written a post sometime bk too on the bond b/w fathers and daughters :)

Fathers do have a special bond to their daughters and mothers to their sons, predominantly. Nice post Gils. May you have a 'daughter' in your family for that bond.

Hey thanks for visiting my blog :) Liked this post. First guy I have seen who respects women. Great to see that. And I guess all dads are proud of their daughters. We girls are sooo close to our fathers :) Even my dad covers up if I make some blunder.
