Jyotiraditya being Naughty

Jyotiraditya or Bablu, as we call him at home is growing up to be a handful. He is naughty and he is an angel. We love him a lot. Here are some pictures of his recent antics. Mamli, my daughter, gave him a crayon and a piece of paper because he was crying. The little tyke went and drew all over the dinning room floor. We had a really tough time getting the crayon marks off.

The floor was better...

The floor was better than the wall. Look at those cute curves...

Real Cool, eh? Ya Right...

"Real cool, eh? Ya right." First time I had to rub crayon marks from a concrete floor. Ya right...

Flying Kites (Sankranti 2005)

On Sankranti this year we had a get together at Mathew's place in Secunderabad. Ravi, Vatshala, Padmaja, I along with Mathew and Nivedita. We had a good time in the late morning, then we went to buy kites and all the other stuff you need for flying kites. Came back with about 8 kites. A colleague of Mathew who is an expert at kite flying also joined us. Got back to the house in time for lunch.

After lunch we took the kids to the roof top and had a good deal of fun with the kites. The kids enjoyed themselves a lot. And so did we !!!
