87. When son becomes father, father becomes son

Life changes so narrowly in time, its beeeeen a loooooooooong time since I stepped into the world of blogs for so many reasons - upswing in career, change in family lines and a simple yet undeniable fact - boredom of unwanted repeated extravaganza flowing down the blogs these days. It is so right that you dont look at the world the way it its, you look at it the way you are, your memories and thoughts reflect on how the world swirls around you. There are many so many instances that make you stand out with pride:

As a Toddler - When you first started riding a bicycle, then maybe a motorcycle, when u secured your very first rank, when you had the very first crush on the cute girl/boy next your door, your very first manly/womanly dress from boy to girl, your first moustache, your first job, your first promotion, your marriage ---- all of these has been you, yours,mine kinda pride and then the arrival of a little one in your family changes all of that - the adage saying of superman "When a father becomes a son, the son becomes a father". It is no longer you, its your family now!. The rest of post below will continue in tamil for a poem that I wrote for my baby @ the wee hours of early morning, longing his for arrival from my inlaws home after his birth.

எப்பொழுது குட்டி நீ என்னருகில் வருவாய்,

என் கண்களுக்கு உறக்கம் தருவாய்,

மணியோ அதிகாலை மூணு,

நீதான் என் வாழ்வின் தூணு,

அழகு திருமகன் உன்னை பெற்றெடுத்த உன் அன்னையின் ராசியோ சித்திரை

உன் அழகு கரம்பிடித்து உன்னோடு அவள் இங்கு வந்தால்தான் இனி எனக்கு நித்திரை,

இந்த அதிகாலை வேளையில் ஆயிரம் சத்தம்,

என்னிதயமோ ஏங்குகிறது உன் மழலை குரலுக்காக நித்தம்,

வாழ்நாள் முழுவதும் நீ தருவாய் எனக்கு வசந்தம் அள்ளி,

வாழ்ந்த பின்னும் என் கட்டை வேக தருவாய் கொள்ளி,

மூன்றெழுத்தில் என் மூச்சிருக்கும் என்றார் ஒரு தந்தை,

"தமிழ்" தானே என நான் கேட்க, இல்லை என் "குலம்" என்னும் மூன்றெழுத்தை, "வளம்" பெற வாழவைக்கும் என் "மகன்" என்ற மூன்றெழுத்தில் என் மூச்சிருக்கும்!!!
