Life is like a rainbow where each color is unique and symbolizes something special, however when they come together they form a spectrum of misty light that demands awesomeness. Life becomes a rainbow when it is filled with varied emotional variations, upheavals and unexpectedness.

Would there be any life if any one emotion was missing in it? If sadness is missing we wouldn't appreciate happiness, if pain is missing we wouldn't appreciate the pleasure. And to have a particular day repeat itself over and over again for the rest of my life, the day needs to be unbeatable. That day for me is the day - 

What a chaotic day that was, filled with excitement, love, pain, fear, anxiety and much more. I clearly remember the day..... November 17, 2011. Post dinner we went for a walk and I suddenly felt extremely tired. We retired for the night; I remember feeling anxious and uncomfortable-falling in and out of sleep. At around 3.30 my water broke and my husband and mother-in-law rushed me to the hospital. The head nurse did the preliminary checks and suggested some exercises.

In some time I was made comfortable in my room; pillow arranged and asked to rest for a while. The doctor arrived and I was taken to the sonography room for further observation. He seemed happy with the progress I was making and said we will have a beautiful child in our hands in a couple of hours.

My mother arrived and I realized it was well 9 am with over 4 hours already in labor. The doctor came again to check and to lighten the mood he asked... What do you want? I said, a perfectly healthy child. He smiled and asked the nurse to give me some liquid breakfast.

Having read about labor pains and the uneasiness, I was surprised I hardly felt anything except butterflies in my stomach. A few hours passed and after a reexamination the doctor seemed a tad bit worried. He told my hubby that the baby had moved into the breech position and all was well for a normal delivery however a lot of fluid was already lost. He suggested that either we could opt for a C-section or wait for a couple of hours to check the contractions for a normal delivery. The only fear was that if I were to lose more fluid, then it could affect the well-being of our baby.

Before anyone would say something, I said we should just do whatever is the best for the baby and go in for C-Section. My mom held my hand and I felt a lot more confident that things would be right. When my mom is here I have nothing to fear, I said. The doctor’s smile broadened and he told the nurse to get the OR ready.

I was wheeled inside at 1.30 pm and I heard the best sound of my life - tiny sobs. The Doctor came close to me and before he could say anything I asked, "How is my princess?" He said, "Healthy and gorgeous, just like her momma". With that I relaxed.

When I woke up, I saw the best people in my life all gushing over a little miracle, my mom and dad, my mom and dad in law and my hubby. He picked the little doll and brought her to me and the first thing I noticed was that she is a true replica of her daddy. 

November 18th, 2011 at 4.00 pm was the first time I held my life in my hands. Everyone stepped out and gave us a few minutes alone with princess. To our amazement both of us had tears in our eyes and broad smiles. 

As the news of the arrival of our princess spread, family and friends poured in every minute. The room was filled with gifts, cards, clothes and so many blessings. 

The day was a roller-coaster… from tiredness, to anxiety, to relaxation, to fear, to pain and finally immense happiness. For the first time I realized qualities I never thought I possessed…. compassion, strength, tenderness, weakness, worship and above all UNCONDITIONAL LOVE!

I Love You My Princess,
