It's a boy!

Sunila and I are proud and extremely happy to announce the arrival of our son on 14th Feb 2007. He weighed 2.96 kgs and was born at 3:13 PM. He took one look at the world and asked, in a vigorously loud manner , to be put right back in - and for some reason, the doctors were very happy he was screaming. Crying is good, they said. I cannot understand what medicine does to people.

He's adorable. We're going to name him Varun. Varun Shenoy. He was born on Valentine's day, which means he's going to have to spend his birthday GIVING out gifts rather than getting them, unless he becomes a handsome hunk (like me). He's already quite a looker:

Yes, I'm a dad now. These are exciting times for us; and I'm so happy I cannot describe it in words. One thing I do know: I was with Sunila through labour and during delivery - if anyone says men are the superior sex, I will slap them right across the face.

We're back home now, after three days in the hospital, and I'm already changing nappies like a professional. Everything else in my life can wait; this is the most wonderful thing that has happened to me, and my top 3 priorities are family, family and yes, family. Life is beautiful!

Hi Deepak, I go by the name of BINSOUZA,a derivate of De Souza, or in Arabic "Son of Souza"
Your son does look cute, and I can understand how proud U must be. I pampered my first child. I hope Binshennoy turns out to be just like his dad. Your blog is very informative, Keep up the good work. Regards to Varun's ? mum as well.

Congrats Deepak,

The chaos begins...my own experience is that the level of chaos is proportional to (at least) the cube of the number of children in the family (or in the room).

Enjoy the relative order until #2 comes along.

Hello, I am working on a little youtube video and wondered if it would be ok to have five seconds of your beautiful baby as Prahlad, in my short story of Prahlad....

He just looks like an angel, and so perfect!
