I'm a Dad!

9th December 2007, 9:29 pm. A day and date I will never forget.

My life changed forever the moment my son Antariksh was born. I've heard it said that we all fall in love with our children, and it's absolutely true. I still cannot believe how beautiful he is. One moment at a time T there are n people in the room, then at the time T+1 there are suddenly n+1 people, all of whom look absolutely happy. Simple mathematics, absolutely miraculous.

Ever since that moment, life has changed forever. All petty lazinesses, procrastinations, and selfish worries become subdued. The first concern is now my boy. The way one thinks is altered forever.

A new light enters the home and radiates happiness everywhere.
