Daughter , Daughter and Daughter
(This is based on a slightly different write up in english posted on the same subject in the face book. Unfortunately I did not note the name of the contributor ,May God bless that Anon friend .Sons do love their parents equally and would sacrifice their all for their sake but a daughter would be a daughter)
Ram and Sita got married in high fashion,
And they had a house warming of their own home ,
And next day , they decided to celebrate the entire day,
And sealed an agreement that to no one they will open the door.
Ram’s parents were the first to knock at their door,
And respecting his agreement with Sita , Ram did not open the door,
And then Sita’s parents arrived and knocked the door ,
Sita crying pleaded with Ram and he opened the door for them.
Years later Ram and Sita had a very pretty son,
And they did celebrate the birth of the son ,
And then one more son was born to them,
And no celebration worth talking was carried out
After two more years the warmth of their home ,
Was increased by the birth of cherubic anjel like daughter,
And Ram went over board , called all his friends and relations,
And threw a very huge party , like which the iown has not seen.
Sita asked Ram with little hesitation the reason ,
For the very huge celebration and Ram replied.
“She is the one who is going to open the door,
One day for both of us , come what may , with a smile.”
“She is the one who would forgo her food one day,
And feed us and become happy to see us eat,
And I thought that her arrival was worth heralding ,
AS she is a great hope for us, as we would soon be old.”
