Two posts

One that made me read it over and over and still left me not knowing what to say.
I wonder what his parents thought of when they named him Bhagwan. Generations of people who had accepted or given in or were forced into their fate of being the keepers of India's dirt, tangible and that of our minds. Was it hope for a better future, faith in a God who treats them no better than society does?
And the other that left me all teary-eyed.
I knew that the process of giving birth to a child can and is painful but what I did not know that it is as painful when a woman becomes a mother. That at the same time a child is being born, a mother is being born as well. No matter what happens after this, I will be known as the baby’s mother. No matter where she goes or what she does. I will be a mother.
Siri's due date is coming up - she's going to be induced tomorrow. Here's wishing you and K the very, very best, Siri, as you embark on this life-long journey.
