Dear Raunak: You are born today! :)

This is probably the happiest day for papa and me. You are born! And we name you Raunak--a Hindi word that means radiance. We expected a girl and wanted to name her Ranjana ('Ran'jit + Kalp'ana'). But God had other plans. You are a tiny 5 pounds baby. This is going to sound very filmy (means movie like) but you have a birth mark a little above your left knee-exactly like Papa!

Picture time: The pictures are not very clear as I clicked the photos from my album with my BlackBerry.

Papa with an amazed expression on his face just after you were born :)

That is Dr. Naina Singh. My doctor during my pregnancy. Look at me! I look so chubby! This picture was taken almost immediately after you were born.
