I still remember the day, the first time you gave me a shock.
Well, you knew how to surprise your mom throughout. Even before you came, when you were an eight month old angel inside me, you decided to play a game with me. That was a busy day, a very busy one with lots of guests at home. I cannot forget it .. I even remember how I was worried that I had not felt you even once since the whole day, not a single kick or a knock from inside, telling me that you were safe and sound. Your usual swimming strokes were missing. I was worried.. so quietly I went inside the bedroom and lied down, trying to figure out what might have happened.
My mom saw me n understood that something must be worrying me.. something important. She sensed it. You know mom's are like this, they have a special antennae, which keeps working all the time, sensing and keeping situations under her control. Well, I had started acquiring these properties now, that I was going to be a new mom.
My jute cotton, green n blue striped suit was not helping me much in keeping my calm. It was feeling sticky as I had started worrying more. As soon as mom understood the situation, she came n sat by me. I drank some milk, hoping you might move.. my family surrounded me and started talking loudly to awaken you from your deep slumber, but you did not budge. Every second was becoming difficult for us and we finally took a decision to go to the hospital.
Once we ran into the gynaecology ward, machines were put around where you might be and thankfully, we could feel the heart beat, going strong, but you were still not moving ! The nurse pushed you side to side, still you would not budge.. Finally the doctor ran in and asked me what all did I eat and there we had a moment of illumination ! How would today's child react to a snack of milk and biscuits ? They will run away and avoid eating it... It's coke which you wanted ! The first sip and there, you gave the biggest kick out of sheer joy of having coke !
What a beautiful moment that was ! I love coke .. no wonder why !
And today after twelve years when you asked me if you could drink some coke, you reminded me of that moment, when you did not need to be told about what is coke and the kick it gives !!!
You were safe and sound that day and I wish you will remain so forever .
Dear Daughter, I love you ,
