vaLai kAppu or vaLai Adal (putting on bangles for an expectant mother)

August 31, 2009

Approaching motherhood Colours one’s life, one’s thoughts. So it’s fitting That one’s hands and wrists Are filled with colour, too; The rainbows that the little one will soon bring, The good wishes that friends pour into one’s life, And the prayer that the baby will be healthy and happy.

The baby for whom this was done is now more than a year old! :) And she is a real delight.
