A child’s first birthday is a special moment for parents. After all it’s their birthday too as new parents! A journey that they began an year ago with an all new member in the family has reached its first big milestone. Though the kid is too young to understand the excitement but I’m sure he/she’ll be happy to listen to stories, look at pictures and read letters, which became a part of his first birthday celebration.
Bollywood actress Rani Mukerjee and husband Aditya Chopra are going through these happy moment right now as their daughter Adira turns ONE today! MnT wishes a very happy and healthy birthday to Adira and congratulations to the parents. Rani, who has managed to keep her girl away from the paparazzi for the whole of the last year has finally shared the fist ever photo of Adira on her first birthday. Quite a befitting occasion! And she looks cuddly cute.
Like every parent going through a roller coaster of happy feelings on their child’s big day, even Rani is. And she’s summed them up in a heartfelt letter that she’s written to her daughter. I’m sure Adira will be happy to read it when she grows up.
From her emotions and fears to the joys, excitement and realisation of being a mother…she chalks them out all in the letter. How she changed post Adira’s entry into her life to how she wishes to raise a girl who is brave, fearless, confident, wise and carefree echoes the emotions of every mother.
Same fears, similar expectations and exactly same dreams! Whether it’s Bollywood’s once reigning queen, a pilot ruling the skies, one writing this piece or the one who is reading it… When it comes to motherhood, we are all the same!
On a different note, this letter and Befikre…do they have a connect? Brave, carefree, Befikre! I’m just thinking aloud 😉
