The Dude ....!!!

After writing my previous blog i realized, i had forgotten a very important thing..i forgot to introduce the new member of our family.  So the 'One year hence part... 2' is postponed for now.

On 23rd of December 2009, 2 days before the bollywood's biggest hit "3 Idiots" was released, my bhabi gave birth to a baby boy. Back then, for couple of weeks he was called the "4th Idiot " but later given the name "Shlok", obviously by me. As with any other kid these days, the guy is quite smart considering his age and unlike me & my brother, he is quite photogenic. He somehow has the ability to locate camera from the corner of his eyes  and pose for a picture. This one is just one of the many..!!

Needless to say, but I am in love with the Dude..and somehow the circumstances turned around in a way that i get to spent time with him while he learnt to crawl, walk, talk and 100 other things. I don't remember how i spent my childhood but seeing him doing all kind of stuff makes me feel, i wish i was that smart.

The guy passes smile to girls of my age and gets all the attention..somehow has love for Mobile phone & laptops from day 1...doesn't sleep before 12 Midnight..has enormous amount of love for ice-cream, cold coffee and mango...give him the phone and he will talk for long hours (in his own language)...  Don't know if god is working over time to design these kids :P

I don't know how, but the dude recognized me even when I met him for the first time and he has been after my specs since then, oh yeah....just mine !! He deliberately wakes me up and signals towards my specs lying on the table or else where. He comes and sit in my lap, just when i am about to have lunch / dinner and obviously share some of it :-). He makes me eat his share of biscuits & chocolates and at times rice too.. pinch by pinch for half an hour or so. ...Plays with me just when I sit to work and list of our bonding goes on & on....

Sometimes its fascinating to see him being able to differentiate between a T.V Remote, a Mobile phone and a toy phone..from where can he know which charger fits into which can he imitate everyone's actions so can he apply so much of brain in most of the things he do !! I am sure its just the start of thousands of unbelievable things which i am gonna witness about him.....these 3rd generation kids...beyond my scope to understand...!!

P.S - Shlok, if &when you happen to read this would know how naughty you were & how much happiness you bring to me and the entire family....:-)

i would like to give credit to the hero of the piece as well as the narrator, seeing that Shlok was brought alive in all his individuality by the very lively and realistic description.
