HappyBirthday to Khala ki Jaan - Suleimaan 💖
It was 10 days ago, I met this beautiful child for the very first time. I’ve loved him for 4 years and perhaps 9 months over ever since he decided to be born to my beautiful sister Ramma and Saad, a Pakistani couple I happened to meet, through common friends, on their first visit India to 2005. We connected like we’d known each other since forever. We kept in touch and at a time when there was no #socialmedia
. We made an effort through mails and calls. #MagicandMiracles
have followed and filled our lives thereafter. I won’t delve into that for now as it’s my baby Suleimaan’s birthday and today is all about him. .
Considering the situation between the 2 countries, we had to choose a neutral ground to meet, so it was Dubai. It was for the first time he met me in 4 years of his existence and I don’t think it took more than 4 seconds for him to form an affinity towards me. In 4 minutes, I was feeding him a banana. In less than 4 hours, he wanted to buy me a Tiffany diamond. Every morning of the 4 days we spent, he literally woke up saying “where’s Khala?” He was okay being left alone in a different country with a brand new ‘Khala’ (aunt), of a different nationality, and wanted to be around her all the time. I have fed him, danced with him, narrated stories/poems, we’ve had sessions of pillow fights, games, beach and so much more. .
Suleimaan is proof that #LoveIsAllThereIs
. It is a feeling that can be felt between strangers. #BoundariesMeanNothing
. No caste, religion, age, nationality matters. Connection is everything. We are One.
He reaffirms my faith in life, magic and love. People constantly tell me “Be Practical. Life is not a movie. Reality is different from your dreamy world.” Well here’s my own #BajrangiBhaijaan
Love is real. Dreams. Magic. Miracles. All are real. Only if we believe in them, life makes it happen for us and over and over again.
May Love #HealTheWorld
and dissolve all hatred of any and every kind. I hope and pray more Suleimaans of the world meet more khalas to know we are all #BornToLove
