Just read this beautiful article on New York times where Steve Jobs sister recalled the last moments of his life. The last part of the article was really beautiful. Just re-posting part of the article here… I suppose it’s not quite accurate to call the death of someone who lived with cancer for years unexpected, but Steve’s death was unexpected for us. What I learned from my brother’s death was that character is (…) Read more
Saivhes turned 5 months a few days back. As you can see, I’ve not updated this blog much. Was a little busy and had to do some cleaning up online due to some privacy issues. So you may see more private posts or password protected posts in future. I also made a small error when clearing up my Picasa web albums. Not realising that it was linked to this blog, (…) Read more
One thing I admire about Zeenee is her strong determination to try out many new and creative things with Saivhes. He has been exposed to lots of fun stuff and she has been constantly reading and learning new ways to interact with him. I’ll write more about her teaching techniques and activities she does for Saivhes another time. Saivhes has recently shown some interest in drawings and sketches. Whenever I (…) Read more
Our cousin, Isaac has a strong fascination for reptiles. Well, he didn’t hunt any crocodiles but recently managed to catch a monitor lizard. I know most of us would run for our lives if we saw one, but he went after it, caught it and later told me that he tried to sell it to a few restaurants! So much for being a reptile lover Isaac!!!

Water started to splash in as well in the room Saivhes was sleeping in and with the loud thunder and rain, he woke up startled. Zeenee had some difficulty putting him back to sleep. At one (…) Read more
Here is a short video of Saivhes. I remember singing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” to him when he was about a month old during his nap or bed time. Didn’t sing this song for sometime and when I did a few days ago, was rather surprised that he made all this noises as if he was trying to sing! If you observe the video, you will notice that he stops singing when (…) Read more
Many people think that this would be impossible. Even we thought so. Saivhes started doing his caterpillar crawl at the age of 2 months. First recorded this at night (see videos Section). More recently, we were able to record it in the afternoon. He frequently does this so leaving him on his tummy unattended is no longer possible as he will most likely push himself out of the playing area! (…) Read more
