Krishna, when you sent Mowgli to me, did you teach him all your little mischievous ways? I see the twinkle in his eye, and a knowing smile lingering on his lips when he looks at me just before he does something he is not supposed to. What all did you teach him Krishna? I will tell your mother that you are up to no good. You have taught him to crawl and climb and reach for things that are forbidden. Have'nt you ?
When I am feeding him, he looks away and starts playing and then suddenly hits out at the bowl with the food so it spills and makes a big mess. Do you then laugh encouragingly in his ear, as he breaks in to peals of laughter? When I try to take away something from his hands, he squeals and runs away. Tell me that you have not taught him to run away and hide from his mother !! Tell me you dont come in his dreams and make him laugh. Isnt it you who showed him how fascinating a ball is? How beautiful leaves and flowers are ? He is not as strong as you Krishna who can jump into a river and fight Kalia. Dont egg him on as he rushes to embrace the ocean, the seas are kinder to you Krishna. You told him how delicious curd is, and butter and how equally tasty mud is ?? Akash thinks if he turns his back to me I wont be able to see what he is up to. Is that how you tried tricking your mother Krishna ?

Yesterday he turned away from me and licked all the sand on his hand. Little did he know the tell tale grains around his mouth would give his secret away. "Open your mouth." I scolded him. When he opened his mouth, I saw the whole universe in there!
Oh Krishna, don't tell me you did not teach him how to do that !!


  • This is too beautiful :)
    Lots of love to our most adorable, dearest little Krishna, from his Sweetoo Maasi! Miss him and think of him often, especially this Friday on his birthday! Wish we could've been there, with Z, to celebrate with him!
