My sweet Family part 2 UBC Day 28

Yesterday I wrote about my dear son. Today I am writing about my darling daughter. She looked like a doll when she was small, so we nick named her 'gudiya'.Today, when she is  married and is a mother of two, my husband refuses to call her by her name. She is still a 'gudiya' for him.
                                              This gudiya was  born four years after  our son, Deepak was born. With the birth of a baby girl, our family was complete. She was a shy girl right from childhood. She was also admitted in the same nursery school, where her brother was sent, but she, unlike her brother,who was a leader of the class, was friendly only with a girl ,who was our immediate neighbour. I remember she used to suck her thumb all the time. Even though, she looked cute, but by constant sucking, the thumb became very thin and bruises appeared on it. I stitched a beautiful mitten, with colourful embroidery on it. I gave to her saying that it was a special gift for her. She put on the mitten and proudly showed it to every one. The thumb sucking was forgotten.
                                   In the evenings we used to sit in the living room and read . Deepak did his home work and myself and my husband also read  something or the other. This little one was not interested in her dolls or other toys and wanted to read. She would go to us one by one saying 'ek gup bus'. She was unable to pronounce the word 'book' and called it 'gup'. Till now we sometimes tease her .
                 It was time to send her to a regular school. An interview letter came from Convent of Jesus and Mary.I took her for the interview, but she did not even open her mouth. CJM was my Alma Mater. I chatted with the Principal. My little princess, Jyotsna, got  admission. She studied in that school up to Sr. Sec. class.She passed with flying colors, obtaining 94% marks. Her first preference was to be a Doctor, failing which she wanted to study Eco. Hons. in St. Stephans College. She got an interview letter  from the college and roll no. for medical entrance test, for the same date. She attended the interview and  also wrote the medical entrance. She got admission in both. She preferred the medical course. Jyotsna  obtained a very good position in MBBS, with distinction in three subjects.We agreed to her desire to do M.D. As good luck  would  have it ,exactly five months after Deepak's  marriage, she got married to a  highly qualified boy, Doctor Suri, a gem of a boy. She completed her M.D. later on. Both of them  are happily married. They look after our medical needs in our old age.
                                          They  have two boys,both very brilliant. The elder one is  a Doctor and is doing MD from AAIMS. The younger one is doing Eco. Hons final year from Delhi University.
                                       Jyotsna and Dr. Suri completed  twenty five years of married life this year. My only prayer to God  is they always remain happy and healthy, and lead a prosperous life.
