Nayan-tara- Part 1

He entered their bedroom and smiled at her. Her days had become quiet and, surprisingly enough, blissful. She never thought she'd have enjoyed her maternity leave as much. But it sure felt good to rest those swollen feet. And have the washroom by her side for those emergencies the baby must get a kick out of.

Ah. The Baby.

"I rather like this name for our boy", he said pointing to a newspaper clipping of one Arihant Sinha.
She smiles back -he understands she likes the name as well. But she smiles again looking at his pleased look thinking, ".... it'll be a girl, isn't that so baccha?", she said to her belly in her mind.

She liked this unspoken communication with the Baby, as though the placenta linked their minds. For the Baby did understand. Oh yes she did- sometimes she'd create quite a fuss when upset, leading to one of those rushed washroom affairs. Or she'd kick up in delight or agreement.

But today it was time for a story. The Baby knew, for it was her mother's blood that ran through her. The Baby knew her mother's heart very well now, for it wasn't just their minds, but their hearts too were linked.


As one's blood kept the other's heart alive. And her love in that blood which kept her warm.

So the Baby waited patiently, knowing Mumma wanted to share something. And share she did.
