Just Another Day

I feel fairly unwell today, head is heavy, nose clogged and throat scratchy. I guess the weather is changing. This morning started interestingly, but somewhere along the way my heart started pounding for a new camera so I could go back to photography. My wife, Kavitha is a great photographer and in several ways her pictures have inspired me to start photographing again. Unfortunately, it is impossible for Kav and I to share cameras as both of us are fiercely independent, so I have to find one for myself. I think its the right decision in the long run.

I love biking, so I got myself a new bike, the Yamaha RZ15 due for a much delayed delivery this weekend. I can't wait to get my hands on that bike and take Kav and Nethra for a ride. That beings me to Nethra: What can I say about her. Before Nethra was born, there was a lot of planning of when we should have a baby, were we financially secure, will we do a good job with the baby? Are we mature enough to handle a baby? I am sure several others go through the same thoughts. The moment she was born, life changed: From a doubt, it became a surety. I was born to be a dad to a baby girl. Every day, whether good or bad, she reminds me of that and how lucky I am to have a kid like her. What is special about her? I do not know, but all I know is when I spend time with her, life flies, I do not need anyone else. For her, her papa is the greatest, for me, she is the greatest teacher I have ever come across. Kav and I talk a lot about how we want to bring her up and both of us agree that we should listen to her and not just ignore what she says because she is a kid. So far all of us absolutely love it. As far as I am concerned, I do not know what the future has in store for all of us, but I know one thing: I will take one thing at a time and try my best not to miss her growing up. The job makes it tough, but with Kav around to explain every little detail to me, life moves on.

That's it for today.
