She is feeling much better, at least I am and what I see is she is better than the other day. Doctor confirmed Jaundice and said it’s common in all new born with operations now-a-days. That was relief ! Sunlight is the medicine for this disease, Which I came to know by many other relatives only after it happened to her. How forgetfulness on their part? and How Dumb? Anyway she seems to be feeling better.
She had her
first second bath today. was Ablutions i believe, Her dadi gave her warm water bath and she cried and cried. Don’t know, but when she cried I was amused (don;t know why?) She must be feeling uneasy but that was necessary, I guess. And yeah she had her First POLIO Drop 🙂 .
Her mother had her fingernails clipped and she was supposed to take bath (for the period is supposedly unholy). Thereafter, She goes to temple .
Entire family gathered for the function to welcome the new born and to perform the namkaran samskar . We had a small dinner party at the residence. Well her Uncle and aunt had finally come up with a pet name “Pihu” . Her official name is still being considered by them. I never thought finding a suitable name could be that difficult. I had kept this pending thinking this could be done in few minutes. Now I see, how difficult it is.
For the Chatti / Shasthi party close family and friends were invited . As everybody knows my dad, everyone was( expecting this. And what a party it was (for I was at the party and not inside where ceremony was going on). Pihu was dressed and puja performed. Our ancestors remembered(names being written on paper !) Her name , added in the ancestry. And then ladies sang, girls danced and baby Smiled 🙂
Ha ha.. It’s a good feeling ! and I’m Loving it !
