Babe in the Air


Richa was the first person to drop a ‘keep writing so beautifully’ IndiMail, soon after my blog was born. Richa it was who sent me my first Liebster Badge too (and I celebrated, went out for dinner, did not cook). And over posts and comments and mails, one day, we grew to call each other ‘Soul Sisters’. Full of love and warmth to spread, and bubbling with energy that reaches me through my computer screen, she has been that constant ‘pat-on-the-back’ that I needed. And her 'well done' matters!

One look at The Philosopher’s Stone and you will know what I mean. She writes, of course. Writes wonderfully, always. But what inspires me the most is that she writes for the love of writing. ‘I write so I exist. I exist so I write’ is what she says. And it shows - prolific, talented, committed, writing-after-the-kitchen-is-wound-up and a long day at office done. I am yet to come across such consistently interesting and well-written short stories as I read on her blog. I am also yet to meet a person who merges her public journal with her personal life as elegantly as this woman here. 

So, when she tells me – I need a guest post, darling. You have 2 days, the topic is Travelling with Children and you cannot refuse - I do not take it as a threat. I take it as a compliment, for she adds, as usual in her ever-encouraging voice – I know you can. I trust you can. Just write!

And I write. About a baby in the air. A babe in the air, if you wish to call it that after you read the post. 

I do. I call it ‘Babe in the Air’ and for the rest, here is the link.


By the way, don't let the pictures down there mislead you.

  1. I am blushing and that for a narcissist is something huge to accept :D Sakshi I love you for who you are and for what you write. Day after day I have watched you grow. I remember when you didn't even have an indirank, a newbie in the world of blogging. I knew back then you are going to go very far here. And have I been proved right or not :-) *hugs*

    1. Blush all you may, but I will never stop making you blush. I love you back for exactly the same reasons. And yes, Richa, as I mention above - you were the 1st to make me believe that there is reason to. :) Lots of best wishes to you and your pen. I know it will continue to weave magic into words. Proud to be your friend! :)

  2. Sakshi - Woman, you never cease to amaze me with your writings. Another cracker of a post with the "baby wordings" aptly put. I think that's enough. I am running out of praises. Must reserve some for later.
    Richa - You have an amazing blog, and Sakshi's piece is a worthy addition. Glad she decide to wield the pen for your blog:)

  3. Awww Sakshi, that was again a cute and hillarious post. :-D And I loved the little cutie's pics. Just adorable he is. :-)

    "and daddy picks me up, carefully avoiding my bum. So serious he looks, as if he doesn’t do poo-poo." Ha ha ha...so most of the Daddy's are the same, I guess. :-D Enjoyed the post thoroughly. :-)

    1. Yes, most fathers are the same. They dangle them from their arm-pit when there's a little yellow in the diaper, as if the diapers will burst or something. :P
      So happy you have fun reading this, Rekha.

  4. Nice! Given N's seemingly vivid imagination in the videos of his that you have shared, I am pretty sure this was exactly how he kept busy during that flight!

    1. Someone else too mentioned N's videos to me once. I hope he too had noticed his 'vivid imagination'. This was exactly how he kept busy during the flight, yes. However, every story has ports which are not for the naked eye. Perhaps, this one too. :D
      Thanks, Rickie.

  5. Cho chweet! Left a comment there too. Babies on a flight can be such a pain but you make it fun :). N is such a doll. I want to hug him and hear him say his Bhagwanji prayer :).

    1. Yes, he is learning to say that right. By next spring, I will make him perfect! D

    1. You say it beautifully and make me give myself an extra pat. Thanks, Jyotsna. Though, I do think, too many are 'thik-thaak' only. Maybe we met at the right stage and age of the blog. :P

  14. First things first, its nice to see such great friendships among the blogger network :-)

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading the post. Hilariously written in the baby's slang. When they're too young all they do is smile and cry but once they start growing, it's fun to watch them if you're not the parent :-P

    1. "If you're not the parent" - it can be fun as well as not-so-fun. Try making one sit next to you in a train journey. :D
      Thanks a lot for reading, Ashwini!
