I was in tears when the sudreh was slipped over my daughter’s shoulders and the Vada Dasturji hand holding the child tying the kusti for the first time.

I cannot vouch for this happening to the navjotee children or even to the priests performing this most auspicious ceremony but I can honestly state that even as the sudra was being lowered on to the young shoulders of my sons for the very first time, something akin to a Divine blessing seemed to be descending upon me! I cannot explain it in better terms but I felt some sort of deep relief thanking God that I was able to do my duty and a great satisfaction seemed to engulf me. May all other parents feel the same sort of gratitude at being so blessed as I did then!

Hope the above article must be
published in our community papers for better understanding for young and old minds.
