In fact, I am going to talk about this little lady here -
She's Nakshatra. Seven years old. Staying in Sharjah. Studying in Dubai. Single. Beautiful. But no... marriage proposals aren't invited! I think she's off guys right now.
When I was in Bahrain, I was able to meet her at least once every two or three months. Now that I am in India, chances are less. It's amazing what kids can do to you when they are around. They shower you with tons of affection, make you smile even in the toughest of times and make your life all the more fun to live!
For me, whenever I am around Nakshatra (who happens to be my niece) I am at peace. We sing together, we laugh wildly at absurd things and get all hyper. In a nutshell, she acts her age whereas I am brought down to enact an age which happens to be so much more carefree and lively.
My bro-in-law landed from Sharjah recently to attend the very famous 'Trichur Pooram' in Kerala. He brought a small surprise along with him. An extremely cute letter from the cutest person in the whole wide world -
The letter said 'Mema (aunt in Malayalam), I miss you a lot. I am coming there. Hope you are excited. I love you. Or come here sometime. I will be waiting.' It also had three hearts with 'Amma (mom)', 'Mema' and 'Kunju(her pet name)' written inside them. I was incredibly touched. It's surprising how as adults we forget how to win over hearts in this innocent kind of way. Kids just have that magical effect of melting you down to the core.
Being the crazy aunt that I am, I decided to respond in my own kinda way (don't judge me by my handwriting!)-
I am not going to type down everything I have written there but the stick figure conveys it all!
This post is specially dedicated to my 'pumpie umpy umpkin' niece who happens to be my sweety pie!
P.S - I have edited the previous post to include all the awards that I received from Nikhil, Sam and Yamz. Thanks, you guys! Love...
