Today is a special day for our family. We are celebrating the fiftieth birthday of,Kavita, the darling of the family, the nucleus , the centre of attraction and all activities of our house! Yes Kavita is the daughter in law, who has attained a special place in our hearts. For Deepak, our son, she is the Kavita(poetry) of his life. For me and my husband she is the solace, the comfort and the soothing balm !! She is an amazing girl.She is on her feet from morning to night, but never do we find an expression of tiredness or frustration on her face. The quote given above truly refletts her.
Yes this is Kavita. She entered our life twenty six years ago. I and my husband had gone to Kerala, as my mother in law had passed away. Kavita's father and my hubby were childhood buddies. He came along with his daughter for condolence. As chance would have it, his daughter came and sat by my side. This young and pretty girl attracted every body's attention.When I started a conversation with her in English, I was surprised that she replied to my queries in pure Hindi. I enquired what was she doing.She said that had got a teaching assignment and was waiting for posting. Involuntarily I said, '' Why don't you to come to Delhi?/" (How fate made me utter these word, It was preordained)
We left for Delhi, but the picture of that simple, yet smart girl's image remained etched in my mind! O n our return journey I opened my mind to my husband.He agreed to my suggestion,but said that may be Deepak has someone in his mind.As fate would have it, we got a proposal of marriage from Kavita's father.Deepak and Kavita liked each other.Every thing fell in place. Our dream came true. It was, as per a Hindi saying , ''Chatt Mangni and Patt Byah'' which means 'marriage followed immediately after engagement'.Both of them adore each other, a couple made for each other!!
She was a great favourite of her parents being the only daughter of her parents and an only sister to her two brothers she was dominating and her word was the last words in her paternal house.. Even in her marital home, she is a dominant figure.
As a child she was very much interested in sports/ She played Volley ball, Badminton, Table Tennis. She also took part in gymnastics.She also loved to dance.Both her daughters have inherited a love for sports and from her.
She became a working lady soon after her marriage. She is very hardworking and sincere with her work. Now she is a Principal of a school. She is greatly respected by her colleagues. and appreciated by her superiors
Soon after the marriage, my hubby had to undergo a surgery. Kavita looked after him with all respect and devotion., which left us dazzled. She became another daughter for us.She and our daughter became best of friends.
Her entry into our household brought new life, enthusiasm and brightness. Kavita has one great quality. As soon as she comes in contact with someone she makes a place for herself. She gave us two cute grand daughters, who are the apple of our eyes.Their word is final in our house.
1. she is very affectionate and simple hearted.
2.She is very religious and god fearing'
3.Her love for her daughters is unparallelled.
