She thinks that I can scold her teacher so that the teacher behave nicely with Poorvi. She thinks that I can demand my way on the road by bullying the fellow-drivers :-) She thinks that I can do anything and everything. She believes more in me than what I do in myself. May be that's the way she gets comfort that father is there to help her and protect her in every situation.
Well, that's really going to add a big pressure on me to "behave" in the way she expects her father to be. Should I pretend or should I not? I tried to explain and set the expectations right, but failed to do so. I told her how I "cannot" construct a house and she refuses to believe :-) She cannot just think her father as a "normal human being" :-)
Although I don't want to disturb that "secure" feeling Poorvi has in this tender age, how do we ensure that it does not create over-expectations and a big disappointment when I don't deliver it one day? It is really going to hurt one day when these kids know the "limitations" of the father :-( How do we guide and groom these children to towards that day? Should we act as "super heroes" till that day?

Ha, what a topic to have a blog on? 1752? What is the number all about? Well, its been more than just a number to me and veena !!!
Lets go back to history to find some relevance of this number :-) Its been almost always associated with the begining of a new era/life......
Year 1752 has lots of significance, that was the year when Brits and US colonies started following Gregorian calender ( modern day calender), the beginning of a new era in the history.... for all practical purposes, 1752 is referred to as the start of Gregorian calender year.....
RFC 1752 aptly talks about IP-next generation protocol..... again the new era in the networking world !!!!!!
Well, is it a coincidence that 17-5-2 happens to be my marriage day?? ;-)) It was exactly 7 years ago on the 17th day of May, I started a whole new life with Veena :-)
Hmm.. and we decided to have this special number -1752 - on our first car's number plate. Even today, on the road, I look for any vehicle with number 1752 on it, which kind of gives me a special attachment :-)
So, you know, 1752 is just not another number for us :-)
