Of blogging-breaks and sharing-birthdays..

I realize that I haven't been posting as regularly as I possibly can. I sincerely hope that this is just a temporary slump in form and that I would be able to make a decent comeback to prime-form blogging pretty soon. I really don't need to be "rested" or "dropped" to rediscover my bearings.

On a personal note, I became a father this week. I've been told that becoming a father, makes you more responsible and focussed in life. I do hope that this is true and the renewed focus would get reflected both at work and also at making inane blog-posts. Ever since the doctor told us that the due-date would be some time during the last week of April, my wife and I wished the kid would be born on April 24th. The thinking was that if he has to be a Taurean son of a cricket-blogger, then why not share his B'day with Sachin Tendulkar. I narrowly missed being born on the same day as Kapil Dev and I've blogged earlier about feeling bad about it during my growing years. The caring parents that we are, we didn't want our son to feel the same. April 24th came and went and there was no sign of him stepping out of his cozy pavilion. He leisurely ventured out eight days later. He probably believes in doing things on his own terms or probably isn't going to be a big SRT fan - only time will tell. All we know for now is that he shares his Birthday with Brian Charles Lara. May 2nd also happens to be the birthday of David Beckham and Satyajit Ray. I don't know how much thrilled I would be if he becomes as popular a soccer star as Beckham or as creative a director as Ray (btw I never understood his movies), but I sure would be a lot happier if I get to see him cover-drive with a flamboyant touch and an exaggerated back-lift. What more can a father ask?

Congratulations and I am sure holding you son would be as fulfilling as lifting the coveted World Cup at the Lord's pavillion..

And I realised I had become a father about the same time (4/5/6) last May.

Good luck and yes, becoming a dad would surely make you "responsible". Now you would be RESPONSIBLE for all things that cry, get dirty, smell and yes, be prepared for long day n night test cricket!
