Between Days…


“Just thought I would summarize the reason for some gap in my last letter to Riddhie and this one….”


Dear Riddhie,

The last few weeks have been pretty excruciating for us - mentally, physically and emotionally as well. We took a decision to move from Gurgaon to Sonipat for a while and the entire house had to be packed and parceled over and finally, a good bye was said to the flat and city where you were born and your mom came in after our wedding. Maybe we would go back to it some time later in life, but as of now this is how it stands.

Next, I was scheduled to travel to US on a 4 week work assignment in the same week when your uncle Vishal's marriage was scheduled which just meant that your mom and I had to stretch ourselves that extra bit to make ourselves available for a multitude of parallel tasks that came our way. Add to that the labor of relocating to a different city and the constant work pressure and it has been a pressure cooker situation for me recently.

However, all of it is in the past now. It is May 17th 2011 today and I am finally away and you and your mom are currently at your grandpa's place in Kaithal. It's almost four days now since I last held you in my arms and it feels terrible to be away already.

To tell you the truth, you haven't been very friendly to me these last few days, in fact to be honest every time that I have tried getting close to you or pick you up, you have been literally pushing me away with all the strength in your little arms. Every time I have tried cuddling you up, you have looked away and reached for your mother's lap. Perhaps it is the growing sense of recognition for your mom and your constant need for her attention that prompted you to act like that but I guess I am even missing you push me away just as much.

I believe I shall use this time and the weeks ahead that I am away from you to write about all little things that I have been piling on from the last few days when I was busy shifting, travelling and attending the marriage. I am counting on your mom to send me your pics and details of your fresh tricks and actions in days ahead to make up for this lost time. I just hope that I get to word in all the details the same way as I would have, had I been around.

So, I guess the next few letters or posts shall be about things that you have been doing in recent times and the account of your uncle's wedding for you.

But for now, really missing you sweetheart.

Love,
Dad.

PS: Just for the records, this is the last picture that your mom clicked of you and me together before I set off for my trip.

Every post of yours explicitly narrates your deapest love, affection and emotions for your lovely and adorable Riddhie.
Today, she is too young to read your feelings for her, but I am sure, when she is able to read and understand, she would be proud of her father.
Your post also shows how much are you missing her during this period. May you get united with her and anku at the soonest. God Bless...
