Update on Aish

"Why are you wearing a woollen top? It's such a hot day!" Mom said just before we set off for the hospital to see my sis and baby Aish.

"I dunno. I'll feel cold on the way back." I said.

Mom looked puzzled. Jeeju had said today was the hottest day so far.

And sure enough, on the way back it rained like mad. The temperature dropped from 36 to 24 degrees. My feet were freezing. But I was warm.

"Dekha dekha?" I bragged to Mom. "I knew."

"Achha baba, you knew." She said.

I guess it's things like this that make my sister have such blind faith in me. Once in a while, I make a random statement and somehow, it happens. Like the time she told me to wish that she'd conceive soon, and I said out of the blue, "Yeah, you'll conceive around your birthday." And sure enough, she did.

Today in the hospital, I finally had a chance to speak to her for a long time.

"I shouldn't have left that message on your voicemail. I made you worry so much on the flight. But I knew your wishes would help. When Aish was admitted and put on IV and the breathing tubes, the doc had said, 'It's upto God now.' I knew that even if there was a 1% chance that your wish would help, I had to take it."

I assured her that she's got many many many people all over the world wishing for baby Aish to get well soon. But when I think of what the doc said, I can only imagine how scared my sis must have been to hear something like that. I mean, they only say this kind of thing in hindi movies, don't they? :(

Anyway, I was a very happy masi in the hospital today. Baby is getting better, though she is still on IV. Hopefully, they'll come home tomorrow evening. T
he baby's eyes followed me wherever I went. My sis said that's the first time she's done that with anyone. YEAY! :D

I'd posted photos of the baby and me on this post, but my dear friend ROS asked me to not put up pics till the baby is ten days old. So I took them down. Will put them up in about three days.

And yes, I'm really scared of ROS. :P

Rays Of Sun said...

Rays Of Sun said...

This I said without reading:D US mein hi rehna...I get to post first:P

Sahil said...

Wow cute kid!

Hatti-katti lag rahi hain bachi! (Not u, Aish! offo!) Cute hain :)

And yeah, ur not 'supposed' to put pics of urself up on this blog.... rule tod diya na apna?

Rays Of Sun said...

BTW, used to say that bacchon ke pics ko nazar lagtee hai:(
So be careful and apply a kaala tika to her:-)
I know I sound stupid but we cant take risk with Aish:)

Rays Of Sun said...

BTW, laptop pe photoshop nahi hai kya?? Nahi kyunki tune apnee pics lagayee:P

Rays Of Sun said...

And one more thing: Meree kali zuban hai..dint I tell you..Aish will be back home in 2 days?????

Rays Of Sun said... am outta here..was bored of gmailing:P

Sayesha said...

Achha achha baba... removed the pics... will post them after a week :)
ps: Kala teeka bhi laga diya :)

Some rules are meant to be broken under special circumstances. :) Actually that was one of the best pics of her (and yes, of me too) and I didn't wanna crop myself out of it :P

Photoshop nahin hai, only MSPaint, but I didn't wanna crop myself out yaar... bahut achhi pic hai :P

bananapen said...

Caught a glimpse of the pics -- then the post disappeared! :P
Nice pics though :)

Thanu said...

Congrats on baby Aish. I read ur last few posts, but didn't get a change to comment. I did say a prayer for Aish though.

See now u in US time so ROS and I get to comment b4 rest of the world

Dinesh said...

Missed your previous post as I wasn't expecting any updates while you were in the U.S.

Glad to hear that baby Aish is doing fine now. Waiting for the pics :-)

The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

yeh kaisa nainsaafi hai milord?

ROS ki bacchi. das comment marti hain, aur khud pics dekh leti hai aur fir nikalwaati hai.


The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

happy to know aish has gotten better and will be home. enjoy ! and give your sister plenty attention & rest too. :)

justme said...

am late reading this and your previous post.. but thank god things r fine..
strange is'nt it.. am a non beleiver too and yet wen my family goes thru a crisis and i see them trust a supreme power so much, I cant help but sit down along with them and pray.. maybe there is someone...

anyways.. bottomline.. hoping masi and bhanje r rocking..!! your post reminded me of my sis and her son.. 2 years back and d excitement that the first grandson in the family can bring..!!
touch wood.. things r fine.. :-)

The Smiling Girl said...

Yes yaar.. good u took off the pics of the baby... nazar legaga.. and jab dus din baad pic lagaogi, tab bhi bachi ko kala tika lagana and baad mein hi photo kheechna... ok? We dont want anything upsetting now, right?

So is the baby home??
And doesnt it feel great to know that the lil kid actually followed u with her eyes... makes u feel on the top of the world, no?

I bet Sayesha, if you were a kid-fearing girl till now, u will immediately turn into a madly-in-love-with-kids girl the minute baby Aish comes and sits on ur lap.. with her flashy smile... Its the best thing that can happen to anyone, I think.. atleast it was for me...:)

To khoob aish karle aur masti karle.. lekin tera training abhi shuru mat kar.. Baby Aish ko thode din tak innocent Aish rahne de... baad mein shuru kar.. aur ek do tips chahiye to merese pooch, mein sikhati hun ki googgles kaise todte, pillows kaise open karte hain aur poore building ko uthane wala rona kaise karte hain..:)

Have a nice time, buddy!

Prayank said...

Saqi turned into Masi ...

Last 2 posts have something really special abt them ...

Hope ur nanhi tapori is fine ...

Rebellion said...


I wanna see the pics tooooooo Sash :(
But ya.. I do agree with ROS ke bacchon ko bohoooot jaldi nazar lag jaati hai & defly can't take a risk.. am very very superstitious in such situations, so will wait till the right time comes :D

Glad to know she's improving (touch wood)

God Bless..
Take care,

PS: Sash.. do you share some direct telepathy with God??? ;)

Bhaarat said...

Now that baby aish is getting better, I think everyone home must be feeling better.

Please say some random things for me soon :((

Wishing health and love to Aish

The Girl Who Sold The World said...

Suds said...

Siddhu said...

Hey Sayesha -- i'm really glad to hear things sorted themselves out - sorry I couldn't wish you luck when aish was sick. i wasnt around. :)

Anyway, aalls well that ends well, as they say! :)

Nirwa said...

Along with the baby's pic, you should have put up that board which you get to read behind the trucks - "buri nazar wale tera mooh kaala" - baby bhi safe, hum bhi happy! We late comers could have seen the picture of Tiny Tapori! :-)

Anyway, now that so many people are talking about her, even I would get superstitious! :-)

But, yes, I would love to see the baby's pictures!!! :D

Ipanema Girl And The Girl,
When I was talking to Sayesha last night and made her get the pics out..I told her these two girls are gonna be MAD..Grrrrrrr
Lekin gussa thuk do yaar...Aish ke liye:-)
*and ROS is happy that she maska maroed and emotionally blackmailed*

Rays Of Sun said...


Sayesha, naam mil gaya bacchi ka "TT"


The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

@ ROS,
haan haan, E.B. Sometimes, nothing works like e.b.

anyways, this was one opportunity for me to express solidarity with TGWSTW. The fight against injustice brought us together. *ends dramatic monologue*

waiting for day ten to see little aish.

Rohit Talwar said...

Main gussa nahi karunga. I've seen women panic over such stuff...nazar lagna and all that jazz...I'm glad it's everywhere...I used to think only my family's weird. :|

YEAY! She's getting better! Ek dum khelti hui nazar aayegi next week tak. :) And she's going to spread many many many more smiles! Take care of everyone!

The Girl Who Sold The World said...

Chalo, baby Aish ke baare mein soch kar maaf kar diya. ;)
And yeah, I'm also glad like Rohit that this "nazar" thingie is everywhere. :|

ROS said...

Offo..bacche bade ho jaoo:P

Janefield said...

Janefield said...
