Anamika -Day 4-5-6 Got a Name!

In Writing on November 8, 2012 at 9:56 pm

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 !

Anamika -Day 3

In Writing on November 4, 2012 at 5:54 am

Relatively better day! After crying her heart out her mom has fed her and she slept for a while, in morning.  Mother is getting better and soon they are planning to discharge but need few more observations. Hopefully in a day or two, baby will be in her Home. After the night episode , I did not want to take any risk , took appointment with a child specialist. I don’t have faith on his diagnostics. It’s not like that I know much about the child and think otherwise than him, It’s gut feeling. He has asked to run some tests on the baby, which I am not in favour of unless I consult my pediatrician.  Got an appointment with him for tomorrow morning. My sister-in-law  asked me if she has been exposed to sunlight without which complications may arise.  Doctors call it physical jaundice, I guess. And Jaundice as a word itself is horror , leave alone for kids.

Getting ready for another gruesome night. But Anamika is more of quiet today… which dreads me more. …

Now, searching for her name…  🙂 There is so much to do  and I suppose ,even as a father, it was never so tiring, but  It’s all so good.

Good night


Anamika -Day 2

In Writing on November 3, 2012 at 3:55 am

It was a Hard day today.  All day long she slept well . She had her very first body massage today.  I was dreaded like hell. The nurse swinging her upside down and even hanging her by her soft and delicate head. I was literally surprised , how can a baby endure such heavy massage. om said, even i as a baby had this massage for one year. Now I know why I am like I am. it seems every mother idolizes Dara Singh and wants her baby to  be like. Hence the massage.

I noticed she had actions , one like tendency to vomit, wanted to consult  the doc, nurse said, it’s common.

As night dawned, sleep was far away from her eyes. Tonight she seriously cried. It’s annoying not to understand the cause of her incessant cries. her grand mom  is almost awake , so m I. Mother is asleep under drug dosages.

She is fine while sleeping on the lap, as soon as you put her on cradle/bed she will give her first cry followed with a long one.  And this is being supported by another new born next to our room.

For now she is sleeping …

good night !

Dear Mr. Thatcher,

I have been a loyal user of your ‘Always’ maxi pads for over 20 years and I appreciate many of their features. Why, without the LeakGuard Core or Dri-Weave absorbency, I’d probably never go horseback riding or salsa dancing, and I’d certainly steer clear of running up and down the beach in tight, white shorts. But my favorite feature has to be your revolutionary Flexi-Wings. Kudos on being the only company smart enough to realize how crucial it is that maxi pads be aerodynamic. I can’t tell you how safe and secure I feel each month knowing there’s a little F-16 in my pants.

Have you ever had a menstrual period, Mr. Thatcher? Ever suffered from ‘the curse’? I’m guessing you haven’t. Well, my time of the month is starting right now. As I type, I can already feel hormonal forces violently surging through my body. Just a few minutes from now, my body will adjust and I’ll be transformed into what my husband likes to call ‘an inbred hillbilly with knife skills.’ Isn’t the human body amazing? As Brand Manager in the Feminine-Hygiene Division, you’ve no doubt seen quite a bit of research on what exactly happens during your customer’s monthly visits from ‘Aunt Flo’. Therefore, you must know about the bloating, puffiness, and cramping we endure, and about our intense mood swings, crying jags, and out-of-control behavior. You surely realize it’s a tough time for most women. In fact, only last week, my friend Jennifer fought the violent urge to shove her boyfriend’s testicles into a George Foreman Grill just because he told her he thought Grey’s Anatomy was written by drunken chimps. Crazy!

The point is, sir, you of all people must realize that America is just crawling with homicidal maniacs in Capri pants… Which brings me to the reason for my letter. Last month, while in the throes of cramping so painful I wanted to reach inside my body and yank out my uterus, I opened an Always maxi-pad, and there, printed on the adhesive backing, were these words: ‘Have a Happy Period.’

Are you f—— kidding me? What I mean is, does any part of your tiny middle-manager brain really think happiness – actual smiling, laughing happiness, is possible during a menstrual period? Did anything mentioned above sound the least bit pleasurable? Well, did it, James? FYI, unless you’re some kind of sick S&M freak, there will never be anything ‘happy’ about a day in which you have to jack yourself up on Motrin and Kahlua and lock yourself in your house just so you don’t march down to the local Walgreen’s armed with a hunting rifle and a sketchy plan to end your life in a blaze of glory.

For the love of God, pull your head out, man! If you have to slap a moronic message on a maxi pad, wouldn’t it make more sense to say something that’s actually pertinent, like ‘Put down the Hammer’ or ‘Vehicular Manslaughter is Wrong’, or are you just picking on us? Sir, please inform your Accounting Department that, effective immediately, there will be an $8 drop in monthly profits, for I have chosen to take my maxi-pad business elsewhere. And though I will certainly miss your Flex-Wings, I will not for one minute miss your brand of condescending bullshit. And that’s a promise I will keep. Always. . .
