Good News

Good News from Columbus, Ohio:
While analyzing data, and writing papers,
We found the time to learn some Bio.
A baby, incredible! Soon we'll be changing diapers.
What will the future bring? A Ramanujan,
An enduring genius, delighting a future generation.
A scientist or a writer--winning The Prize?
Or a philosopher (above such things) infinitely wise.
Who knows? Only time will tell.
Meanwhile, back to our theme:
Feel happy, excited; smile, day-dream,
And worry: Will everything go well?
In November, whatever the Stork will bring,
Its already making our hearts sing.

This was written after we found out about Teji's impending arrival. A letter sent home. Obviously had read Vikram Seth's novel around that time.

    My dear Priti and Gaurav ..
    Waiting for November-
    -to bring glad tidings
    -a bundle of Joy:
    will it complete-?
    -a 'baker's dozen' form 'the third generation
    -of "Yugal Sadan " parivaar
    (can you list the 'dirty dozen already around ??)

    I agree with you,
    s/he would be a great fun -
    - in juggling numbers
    -and eating
    -and singing
    and FAT ?( better watch out !)

    We are full of happiness
    and convey our congratulations
    .... may all your troubles be "LITTLE ONES"
