I have a few things to say and I am gonna say them here ...
|Hello all. I am returning to this blog after a long gap of nearly two months. Things have been hectic as my daughter has joined Junior College and is pursuing science as her subject of choice. In between, she was involved in a romantic liaison with a boy whom we did not approve of. She got punished for that; in fact, we nearly removed her from college on account of this, as we feel that she is too young to behave amorously. Please remember that we live in India and we live by standards which are far different from those in the west.
Ultimately, she denounced the "affair" and has promised never to see him again. You might want to know why we rejected that boy: for the simple reason that Inas is too young to run after boys. She has to study hard and make a career for herself. She wants to be a doctor, after all, and that requires her to remain focused and work tirelessly for at least another seven or eight years.
I am at a loss as to what to do to control this maverick daughter of mine. I would appreciate any comments or guidance.
Coming to other things ... my younger daughter Hannah remains attached to us, and is sincere and devoted to her studies. Nishrin, my better half, is contemplating early retirement from her work at the beauty salon. This may happen within a few months. Let us see.
My own practice is going fine too. I had my best month in September 2006 - in fact, my best month since I began private consulting practice in 1986! This kept me away from the computer too and has enabled me to save a few thousand rupees for a rainy day.
Ramadan is upon us and I am fasting everyday since the last ten days. I hope to do all thirty fasts this year, and if I am able to do so, it will be another first for me, because I have never done all the fasts in any year.
Pray for my daughter Inas and also for me.
Thanks for reading this ramble.
