To mummy and papaji, with love...

On my birthday today, as I look back the 29 years spent, 25 of those - each and every day with you as one of the most loved and cared for daughter of the world, I am filled with the deepest love and gratitude for both of you. Especially now, being a mom to 2 kids, I remember and understand when you so often said "जब आपके बच्चे होंगे, तब आप समझोगे :)" I indeed समझो :) now.

- For starters. I know what you mummyji must have gone through for 9 months plus the unnerving labor hours to bring me into this world.

- When my back finds it so difficult today to bend down again and again for changing disposable diapers, I can't even imagine how you managed with chaddhis innumerable times and then having to wash them.

- Taking care of your child's eating, sleeping, health, behaviour are routine things for everyone but the time, energy and patience a mom and dad put into it is something one can understand only after becoming one. And so thank you for each and every moment one spent on all these things, howsoever small, but to think of it, the key to fit and healthy survival.

- The thing I have been thinking about lately is when today with so many channels and programs to watch on TV, when I try hard to not get irritated when Vansh doesn't let me watch one; just how did you find the patience to even forego the one single Sunday hindi movie and take me to Children's Park/India Gate when I demanded it at that very time.

So many more little things which makes you the absolutely great influences you are in my life - running to/from work to drop/pick me up from the school bus stop; taking me to Appu Ghar at the end of all exams even if you felt like doing something else; motivating me just the right way to do something well; teaching me the right values; being there to share my triumphs and failures - I cannot even begin to list down everything that you have done for me.
And today I want to let you know how much you are loved and thought about each and every single moment. The loving husband and the adorable kids I have today with your blessings and the very best wishes for us join me in thanking you for what you are and all the love and wishes you shower on us.

beta deepali has correctly said that post like this has bring tears into our eyes and made us speechless but still cant resist to write a few words dear...beta these are our tears of joy and a person becomes speechless when one has so much so much joy in ones heart that it cannot be expressed in words....though we hv not done anything special as every mum/dad do the same for their children but with the grace of god and it is only u who has repaid lots more in terms of luv, affection, values & rather in every sphere...one can very well imagine how the parents feel when their child is being appreciated by one and all i.e.relations/friends/neigbhors/teachers/pupils and who not....whosoever meet us always ask reg u first, we still remember and shall always remember, when u were very little, chakravorty uncle said neera shall not be known as daughter of ramesh hemrajani but ramesh hemrajani shall be known as neera's father....
someone has rightly said, Why God Made Dauthers....
When God created Daughters He took very special care to find
the precious treasures that would make them sweet & fair....
He fashioned them from sugar & a little bit of spice....
He gave them sunny laughter & everything that's nice....
God smiled when He made daughters,
because He knew....
He had created love & happiness,
for every Mum and Dad.

So we hope u understand how lucky & blessed we are and pray god to bless u with all this and much more happiness throughout your life dear.... Mummy/Papa
