The Magic Word



The magic word that Ive been enjoying over the last few days is "Amma". You watch these old tamil or hindi movies where the hero and his mom do the "Ma".."Beta" thing. Well Ive always had a good laugh at those scenes and immitated the same to my own as well as others' amusement. At that time, I least expected to be enacting the act myself some 10 years down the line. But now that my daughter has learnt the words 'amma' and 'abba' (instead of appa) I do find myself not only being part of the scene but also deriving great joy out of it. Smrithi obviously is extremely impressed with the way she is able to pronounce those words, and loves to hear herself say it, because she keeps saying it all the time. Every time she says it, my heart just melts and makes me realize what i have in front of my eyes - my daughter - a human being with a heart and mind of her own, who has (ya she already has) her own preferences, will have her own way of doing things...



Motherhood is truly a gift - to be able to nurture a child and bring her up and watch her succeed in all her endeavours, is a life worth looking forward to.
