10 on 10 !

Aryan's Annual Day was on friday , 5th Feb. The school told to send the kids by 4 in the evening , while they would start the function at 6.30 Pm and the function would last for 3 hours or so, after which we can collect the kids from their classes.

Now , me being me was so apprehensive. Will he dance when he will see so many people. Plus it will be dark that time , will he feel Mumma left him in school overnight. All kinds of thoughts.

So I did my part and explained him the sequence of events as much as I could. When we reached there , we realized that the front rows were already full and we were almost in the center of seating area. We came to know that parents stood in line for 2 hours to get the front rows :O

The stage was huge with lots of flashing lights. Anupam declared that he is sure, Aryan will cry. I just told him not to underestimate my son and hope for the best !

The event started at 7.00 PM. It was a designed as a dream sequence of a small kid , who had all the fairy tales running in parralel in his fantasy. And like a movie the fantasy had dance and songs in between.

Aryan's class had the second dance on the song, 10 on 10 (Priyanka Chopra's song from Pyar impossible). The situation was when Snowhite's mother asked mirror , who is the prettiest of all and the mirror named her ! Apt for the situation , I must say !

So HE DID NOT CRY !! Actually none of the kids cried. They all moved...err..danced :) And they all did it pretty well. Considering it was their first encounter with stage , considering that it was dark , considering that they would not have seen such grand flashing lights before , they did it REALLY well.

It was tough to spot him actually. I saw him on the closeup on side screen twice. Anupam could not see at all , but later realized that he actually clicked him , when we saw the 2 photographs that we clicked after the function:) Others who sat in front row, told that initially when the lights came on him , he was dancing with his eyes(head turned up) on the roof :) Later he was dancing normal :)

The event lasted till 9.45 pm and the kids were waiting in their classes with teachers. All the parents were worried that the kids might have slept , might be crying and cranky etc etc. But we found them all happy and bubbling. And when I asked him , did he enjoy , I got a BIG YES as the answer :-)

Camera was not allowed officially but we carried (like everyone else) and clicked only 2 pictures :)

Aryan suddenly comes and gives a very warm kiss to Mumma and says ,
"Mumma aapko chocolate khana hai"
Mumma : (surprised by sudden love and offer and thinking , lets see what he is upto) "haan, kahan hai chocolate?"
Aryan : "In the market"
Mumma : "Okay , so you will get from market?"
Aryan : "Yes , Aryan and Papa will get"
Mumma : "For me :-D"
Aryan : "yes , aapke liye aur Aryan ke liye "

Securing his chocolate in my name and wicked !

Favourite Songs

I have been wanting to post this for long but keep forgetting. A list of songs that Aryan loves to see on you tube !

Thande Thande Paani se
Lala Lala Lori

In both these songs he visualizes himself to be the kid and the man and woman as his dad and mom. He sometimes tries to enact the sequence. He sometimes runs to get and put a bindi for me. He sometimes asks me to wear sari tomorrow. He sometimes insist on me bathing with him and his dad. He sometimes wants to get into the laptop to play with that kid :-)

Chal Chal Chal Mere Haathi

This song started with lots of questions. Why is Aunty angry? Why is Uncle sitting on elephant ? Why is Aunty smiling ?
BUT yesterday , he held my hand , dragged me to the bedroom and sung "chal chal chal re mere HAATHI"

Haina Bolo Bolo

He remembers the full stanza of the song and sings it to us sometimes. Looks every cute !

Other favourite ones are

Lakdi ki Kathi - Now which kid doesnot like this one and yeah the you tube mania started from here only !
Bum Bum Bole - When the song starts , he hides behind me , saying I am scared of joker and as soon as joker turns into Uncle its fun !
Maine Kaha Phoolon se - He loves the dance here
Dadi Amma Dadi Amma Man jao - Reminds him of dadi
Sare ke Sare - Loves the little boy
Mera Raja Beta - Defined as Ninna wala song (sleep song)
Chanda hai Tu - Used to like it because I used to sing it to him when he was baby
