My Naming Ceremony

Mumbai incident has jolted each one of us but then we cannot allow that incident affect us such that everything comes to a standstill- doing that means terrorists will win and we just cant let them win. So here I am back compiling my journey so far.

Hectic discussions were underway amongst my family members on the issue of my naming ceremony and it was decided to conduct puja and yagna on 13th Nov, being the 11th day from my birthday. You may want to know that Hindus usually conduct the naming ceremony of newly born kids on 11th day. My family in Gurgaon would be joined by my nana, nanee two days prior to that ceremony. They have come from Dehradun to see me and my mother. They brought me new clothes and a gold chain; which they would gift me on the day of my naming ceremony. They are happy to see me.

In between, my father would go to Dehradun for a day to attend Naresh chacha's wedding and be back by 12th night for my naming ceremony. On 13th, priest would come to do the prayers and the Yagna. I am excited about my day and I am the first one to get ready. My dadee would give me bath and put on my favorite pink coloured clothes. Priest would complete the prayers followed by Yagna. After prayers got over, the Prist would recite me my names.

As already mentioned, everybody has named me differently. First it was the the turn of my Renu bua; who would call me Prisha over telephone from Uganda. My dadee would name me Umankshi, while my dada call me Prateeksha. My chacha and chachee would name me Saarthaki; while my nana and nanee name me Aayushi. Later on, we would be joined by my Anil mama, Mamta auntie, Sunil uncle, Shubham bhaiya and Riya didi. My Mamta auntie would bring me ear rings Everyone was busy celebrating my naming ceremony and I was enjoying being the centre of attraction.
