In case you've been wondering where good ol' Doc Bollywood has been, well he has taken a brief respite to welcome the newest member of his family - Rajan Vyas :) Been waiting a long time to do this particular post and it's been well worth it. Rajan was born on 10/1/08 and came out at a very healthy 9 lbs 13 ozs. He has already been well indoctrinated into the world of Bollywood as filmi music has been playing non stop since he has come home. Lullabies? Who needs them when you have Indian classical music soothing him to sleep every night. He already does have a predilection to Kishore Kumar (go figure) and the below picture is what happened when we turned the melodies off.
I hope to do my best and 'pay it forward' in regards to passing on my love of Indian music on to him just like my parents did for me. It's been a lot like a Bollywood movie in these first few days - alot of laughter, tears, drama, music and much love all the way through. If you want to keep up with his going ons or see more pictures I invite you to check out Rajan's website. The song for today is 'Chanda Hai Tu' about a parent's love for their new son and is just as meaningful today as it was when it was picturized with Sharmila Tagore back 40 years ago - when the good Doc Bollywood himself was debuted (see pic below).
