May 23, 2010. I am in labor. Everyone is in the hospital. Venky is at home with the nanny.
12.18 pm. The little one arrives. Grandpa calls up at home to let Venky know.
Grandpa – “Venky, you have a little sister!”
Venky – “Haila! Now who will play cricket with me!?!”
Venky later asked me when his brother was going to come. Fresh from the memory of labor I folded my hands and asked him to spare me.
