How to Adopt a Baby ..

This was the first real sad story I witnessed in my life.

We had moved to the star colony. Two buildings away was this couple from Delhi. Married for many years but no kids.  So what do the do.

Adopt a kid. Not adopt in the legal sense. They do it the Indian way. They brought this cutie baby girl from a poor relative in Delhi and made her their own.

She was such a doll. Cutest kid ever seen. When she was brought down evenings, we all were already awaiting her arrival.

Then it happened.

Its a theory of mine that a kid in such homes are quite conducive to couple in question to conceive and that's what happened here. In due course they have a bonny boy. How cute. Two kids.

You think.

Not even a year has gone by and then we start hearing stories. The girl just doesn't like us - was the complaint. What ?? A small baby doesn't like you. Are you joking?

This story is told to all - literally door to door.

Then phase II.

This girl is not eating any food. Again a story told door to door. I saw this 2 and half yr old once again -  it was sad, man.

 Phase III

We could hear the girl howling till one two in the night. What the hell, I used to think.


Finally the inevitable.

The girl is returned -after months of torture - to her biological parents and this smart couple are happy with their biological son. I hope so.
