Air Meera

Meera just loves to be tossed in the air (of course, never leaving my hands). She is all giggles and never wants me to stop.

M&m: Meera was wearing this beautiful, brown silk dress.

More Meera!

Meera at Marine Drive, Video

Update: Taking Meera around Mumbai is scary. Folks sporting makeshift masks is a constant reminder of the H1N1 dangers. Schools, colleges and many shops are closed. Swine flu has subdued Mumbai!

(Don’t miss Meera video at end!)
Every evening we take Meera around Colaba Causeway, Gateway of India or Marine Drive. She loves going out, but is surprisingly very quiet. She is observant and looks with laser focus at people, dogs, cats or horses, or cars and buses. Meera doesn’t just look at people, she studies them, as if memorizing their features. Many of our relatives get uncomfortable at this scrutiny, by one so little. Of course she never forgets the folks she loves.

Meera is also fearless and wants to run around, but amma (M) has an unyieldingly tight grip on her.

And Meera’s first Video! She just heard the hoof beats of a horse-drawn cart (taangaa) passing by. See how her body imitates the riders sway, even before she sees and points to the horse! She loves horses!



More Meera!

Meera turns One

Meera turned ONE in her new home. We had a small gathering with cousins, nephews and nieces. Gorged on South Indian delicacies and helped welcome Meera. Here are a few pics.

One of our friends casually asked the other day. “Do you have any pics of Meera?” Then added as an after thought, “of course she is going to be the most photographed girl on this planet.” I was shocked.


The birthday girl; one of her aunts got this tiny dress stitched for Meera.
Here’s looking at you, kid. pssss! pssss! *anti-nazar spray*
