If there is one piece of heart-warming content you wish to read today, then let it be this.
A newlywed bride was often asked when she would give the family some “good news”. The bride was clear on wanting to have twins and thus asked everyone to wait patiently for it. Imagine her happiness when her doctor told her that her wish was going to come true!
She delivered twins: a boy and a girl.
The twins, she says, were poles apart, having nothing other than love for each in common.
While one was sporty and came home sweaty and muddy, the other enjoyed arts and dance. While one child would jump around the house in a pant-shirt, the other would twirl in pretty frocks.
As a beautician, this mother would often take one child along to her workplace, who would observe the mother imitate the threading job she was performing. As a mother, what she gave her children was the confidence that they could be what they wanted and an assurance that she would always be there for them, no matter what.
A little after the Supreme Court passed its verdict on Section 377, this lady asked her husband what he thought about it. His response saddened her – he felt it was a ‘paap’.
The child who loved twirling in frocks is a boy while the one who enjoyed sports is the girl.
While the mother has wholeheartedly accepted her son to be gay, they are yet to break this to the father.
In a Humans of Bombay post, the mother says, “We haven’t told my husband yet. I’m building up to it. So when my son and I tell him together, I know there’ll be tears. But I’ll make sure they’re tears of acceptance.”
