The Delivery


The Contemplative Indian
The Contemplative Indian

At 9:28 PM, September 29, 2008, we took delivery of this as-yet unnamed package at Fernandez Hospital, Abids, Hyderabad. He weighed 2.8kg at birth and took 30 hours to push his way out of his mother Soumya’s womb. He came a few days early, partly in response to his father’s threat to name him “Mohandas” if he dared arrive on October 2. His other major accomplishment in the past week has been to learn to feed himself. In the coming weeks, his parents hope that he will learn to distinguish between night and day, and stay awake during the latter rather than the former.

  1. Heartiest Congratulations!

    Best of luck with your new responsibilities. I am certain you will be a wonderful parent.

    Are you going to start a Daddy blog about him named the contemplative Indian? Now, that would be awesome.

  2. Congrats Ravi! This is indeed good news. I hope the mother and child are both keeping fine health. I do keep popping into your blog once a while but tend to keep out of the heady concotion of debates, views and counter views 🙂

  3. Congrats. Btw, apropos your last line, “In the coming weeks, his parents hope that he will learn to distinguish between night and day, and stay awake during the latter rather than the former”, all i can say is “good luck but wishful thinking.” 🙂
