With love, for Tej


My cousin and his wife recently received a beautiful gift, a baby that would enrich their lives and open a new chapter in it, his name is Tejraj Baxi (Tej), so this is for you Tej,

Your name carries that
profound glaze..
On your birth no one can
guage our craze..

Life is so beautiful
and you are an example..
Life is full of colours
and you are a true sample..
Life is full of happiness
wish you get that in ample..
Don't let even a slight wrinkle
find a place on your sweet temple..

While getting massaged
the expressions on your face
were a sight to catch..
And those calisthenics
suggest as if a gymnast
getting ready for a match..

Seeing you truly makes one believe
that someone up there is surely an artist
Your dad wants you to be a surgeon
i would rather tell you to be a guitarist

Grow up quickly
and decide on your own..
whether to play chords
or research some clone..

Reach for the skies
but never be arrogant..
Search for the stars
but never be ignorant..
do things in life that
makes everyone jubiliant..

Keep your head high
and the feet firm..
Believe in just one thing
and that is
'Karm'..

with loads of love and goodluck...

Babies are so cute, aren't they? It's sad that their innocence fades away as they get subjected to the harsh reality of this world.

Coming to this poem - This could easily become a song. I love the lines where you have given the newborn wings to fly but have also alerted him of the danger zones.

Precisely, I like the simplicity in expression here!!! Keep writing!!!
