Grand children! How much do we love you!! Grand children you are the flesh of our flesh and soul of our soul. When our first grand daughter was born , and I enfolded her in my arms, it gave me a feeling that I was transported to another world.The ecstasy of that moment cannot be described in words.It is etched deep into the portals of my heart. Wow, I had become the mother of her mother. It is a different matter that she is in her early twenties now. This experience will for ever remain fresh in my mind. Afterwards we were blessed by three more grand children. All the four are darlings. They have filled the space in the hearts of their grand parents , which we never knew was empty. All four are God's gift to us. Whosoever coined the the word grand child,deserves an applause, because they are really grand.
Today I am in a reminiscent mood. Flashes of the days gone by are vividly appearing in front of my eyes.I am dreaming with my eyes open. Incidents are coming to the fore which are not in chronological order. There she is, our elder grand daughter ( I will refer to her as Doll in this article). She was real sweetie pie. Even her naughty pranks did not irritate us. In fact we used to be tickled by her mischiefs.She too knew that we were amused. She loved to throw things...... I remember that the sofa cushions seemed to be an eye sore to this Doll. During the day the elders would keep the cushions in their proper place and next time you enter the room the cushions would be on the floor.This sequence used to continue the whole day. She also was an expert in removing clothes from the wardrobe. Her mother would arrange the garments and the daughter would pull them out and scatter them , all crushed on the floor.This little Doll grew up to become a very responsible and meticulous young maiden,who can manage her things in a responsible manner. My younger grand daughter,(she will be referred as a Princess) grew up in the shadow of her elder sister.It is natural that she has acquired the likes and dislikes of her sister.Both sisters are fond of Dancing.They learnt dancing when they were hardly three years old.They have performed at school and college level functions. The Princess is very much concerned about the welfare of the family.Both girls are our son's daughters. They love fast music..I am playing two songs which I presume they will like.The first one is We Are Young and the other one is a remix version of Hawa Hawai.
The other two grand children are the sons of our daughter.We will refer to the elder one a as Prince and the younger one as Smartu.The Prince is going to become a Doctor in a couple of months. From his looks he is innocent but appearances are deceptive. He is a boy with a strong will and determination and is blessed with great self confidence. He has strong likes and dislikes. He is very fond of listening to old Hindi movie songs. Quiz competitions are his forte. Right from his early school days there was hardly a quiz competition in which he did not get a prize. The younger one Smartu is actually a smart boy. He is a happy go lucky child, but at the same time very sharp and intelligent. He is a connoisseur of guitar. Whereever he goes his guitar accompanies him.He is also a connoisseur of good food. He likes to listen to Rock music and also sings rock music with great enthusiasm. I present the following songs for the boys and their parents to enjoy.
