When That Motherly Instinct Arised

me, mamma and sufi in car

It was really quite in the car. We talked in whispers, as Sufi slept. 

We were out for some work. Sufi, by the time had slept in the car.” I think lets wait in the car and let Sufi sleep for a bit” my mom said in whispers. “She was so tired”. Me and Papa nodded.

Looking at Sufi for a while,  we all started to talk about her. “She’s looking so adorable” i said. “I know, she’s really sound asleep” my mamma replied. After a while, we just couldn’t resist kissing her.  “Mamma, she’s looking soooo cuuute!”

When A Picture Speaks To You


It was 10:00 in the night. Mamma was browsing through some pictures to write her blog post on.

“Don’t know what to write” she said worriedly. She pressed the arrow on her mac laptop, when I saw this picture(above). Omigosh! I whisper-shouted. I was so so so delighted somehow, by looking at this photo, that i couldn’t stop looking. Press back! I want to see that pic! I yelled. Finally she had to shoo me off.

Being Away From Sufiana Makes Me Love Her More

Me And Sufiana

“Akka? Akka?” I heard Sufiana say from the distance. My heart melted then and there. I looked toward my house door, where she was—standing, and looking at me with those innocent and sparkling eyes she had. Her sweet voice made me want to run back to my house and stay right there. It was a heart melting sight.

Though I don’t go much to play at my friend’s house, which is right beside mine, or any other place to play, there are days when i spend my whole day playing from morning to evening, or sometimes, night! In those days, Sufiana misses me a LOT. Really. Today was one of those day when i spent my whole day playing. And Sufiana?

Letting Sufiana Spend Time With Herself

spending time with yourself

“Appa? Appa?” I heard Sufiana saying. I rushed to her room and looked at her through the keyhole.

It was a few days back. I went in my yard to take pictures of flowers, when I heard Sufiana’s voice. Her bedroom window is attached to the yard, and you hear better noises from there. I ran toward the kitchen, and told Mamma, about Sufi saying ‘Appa’ softly, and we both started cracking up at her cuteness. When i went to her room, i poked my head inside the keyhole and looked at her. She was sitting all by herself on the bed. She was sleeping earlier, but woke up. She wasn’t scared without us. She was looking at the window and waving her hands saying “Appa”.

A Unique Birthday Celebration For Sufiana!

Me Sufiana and Papa in Club Mahindra.

Oh my! It feels so different to remember that in my earlier posts, i wrote about how many “months”old  Sufi is. And now, i have written how many “years” she is!

Sufiana turned 1 year old on November 2.

It’s even hard to believe “one year old”. And because it was her first Birthday, we of-course wanted to make it very special. So, the first half of the day, we were in Club Mahindra – a beautiful resort with lush greenery. But, more than anything else, we chose to spend some time there because it has two huge swimming pools and a splash pool. Sufiana loves water and has enjoyed being in the pool before (we call her water baby)

These Fleeting Moments With My Baby Sister: A Life-time Opportunity For Me


Sufiana (my sister) continues to delight me and dazzle me every day. She’s the joy and wonder of my life. These days, she stands on her own for a longish stretch compared to couple of months back. She holds on to a support and stands for many seconds – with her hands outstretched in the air! As she realizes she is standing without any support, she gets delighted – her eyes sparkling like diamonds and the happiness reflecting in those big, innocent eyes – as if to say, “Look, look! Pari, Mamma! I am standing on my own. I’m having so much fun!”

Different Ways I Play With My Little Sister-Sufiana Is 9+ Months!


Sufi Playing Piano In Delhi!

Sufi has been fond of music, ever since she was born. When we went to Delhi back from Goa (she was born here) the i pod became a part and parcel of the room where she slept, for she wouldn’t go to sleep without the songs being played on the ipod.

And, knowing her love for music, we knew she might like the piano or the big keyboard that we have. Ofcourse she did!

And, now, the keyboard is where she and I spend some quality time playing notes, checking out the buttons! And she is especially very amused when she listens to the different sounds in the Keyboard named: Heart beat sound, punch etc.
