New Kid in Town

Mrs Sid and I became the happy parents of a baby boy last week. We have given him the name Rishi, which means sage in Sanskrit. He wasn’t named after Rishi Kapoor, 70s superstar hero and Kapoor family thespian, but this piece of classic Bollywood schmaltz certainly played a part in the decision making process.

    Congratulations, Sid. Welcome to a world of sleepless nights and celibacy.

    Golmal is not serious enough until you change the diapers.

    thanks guys

    I’ve been relieved of diaper duty between the hours of 1am to 6am on weekday nights so its not like I’ve completely lost my life…

    Life will never be the same - it will only get better…ahem…what I mean is more rewarding, fulfilling, in more ways than you ever knew possible (my hubby and I have two girls, we know).
    Soon, you’ll find yourself choked with overwhelming emotions and insane pride for that tiny person in your life, and a strong desire to protect him from everything that is bad in this world.

    thanks zafa :)
