Don't get jumpy yet, I am not closing down the blog. And in any case, I update it so sparingly that even if it gets closed, I would need time to notice it myself. This 'bye' is from my daughter. We are just back from a month long vacation beginning with a family wedding and my little girl is bewildered by the sheer number of people she has met during this period. Pari was off course a real special guest, with many people meeting her almost after an year, and most seeing her for the first time. She has been terribly busy greeting so many people and then waving them good bye. Now, she is missing the limelight sorely. Poor thing, she is so starved for company with just us and the maid around that she has started greeting inanimate objects. Not just her stuffed toys and dolls, she even says 'hello' and 'bye' to the eggs in the fridge. The high point came in the afternoon today. I was going through some website which had a picture of a horse. Pari was sitting next to me, she immediately pointed out, "Hos, mumma hos" to which I casually replied, "Yes baby, thats a horse". Next minute, as I scrolled down the web page, the horse got scrolled over, and I heard Pari say, "Bubye Hos".
