of emotions

"Hey ! Saw the baby moving, da !! The head is big"

This was a (or is it an ?) SMS from my sister, in Malaysia. How would you feel, if you were a brother ? I was flying despite my "Annalakshmi" weight. I got highly emotional. There was a reason I got emotional. For the past few days (or weeks) I have been witnessing quite some marriages to my Colleagues and a few others becoming Moms.

For instance, my Sister is now pregnant. Not a single day has passed out, without a war between me and my sister - before her marriage. Quite Natural. I have fought for senseless issues. Even when my mom and sis were crying on the eve of wedding, I yelled at them.. "Ippo enna azhugai.. ? romba scene podaadheenga". But when the Mangalya Dharanam was performed, you should have seen the way I cried. I did not realize I was crying, until someone said "Azhadheda !! Sandhoshama Iru.. Athimber Vandhaachcha !!! Congratulations".

A girl, who was in my life - my sister, is now a part of another family. And now, she is a mother. These days, Iam getting too-much emotional, whenever I hear from my sister. Men dont really feel the transformation. But women, after marriage, their transformation is significant. Think about it.

Nice one Keerthi. Sometimes, it is just not good to keep emotions bottled up.

Congrats on becoming an uncle soon!.

Me getting emotional reading this post too! I often think about how close my brother and I have become after my marriage and to think that we didn't have one nice thing to say to each other before that!!

Anyway, congrats mama-to-be!

I think everyone gets emotional. However, I think Indian men are embarassed to show it.
Bless the Baby.
