Smile !My son Shrav became 6 months old last in March and has now grown into a very naughty boy.  Just observing him makes me feel a lot better and happier.

Although he is only 6 months, he still has provided me with few valuable lessons in my life.

1. Smile !

Sharv looks at everyone and smiles. He makes everyone’s day and we love him for that !

Explore !2. Explore !

Since he is able to move his hands and roll around, he has started to explore lot of things. Anything that comes under his radar, he grabs and instantly starts exploring it with his touch and taste senses ! While exploring he would show lot of curiosity which I believe is important to learn any new thing in life !!

3. Express !

Expressing emotions and feelings are very important for self health. I mentioned about that in my previous post on this blog. Sharv never stays away from shouting or crying or laughing if he feels like doing so. If he is not getting enough attention, he would shout.  If something is bothering him, he would give the loudest cry in the world and if he is happy, he would keep on smiling and laughing !

Relax ! 4. Fearless !

Although he would never know at this age what fear is and what should be done, not done. He holds no fear in trying new things. There has been couple of instances that he has launched himself off the sofa or the bed while playing with his toys. Yes, he would cry very loud but will do it again :-)

5. Relax !

After bath will be his most relaxing period.  He loves playing with water during his bath and loves to relax after his bath time workout is done. He likes to take enough sleep and does not stretch himself just for the sake of staying awake !

My daughter as well had taught all above to me when she was 6 months ! Pity, I did not have this blog back then.

In an ideal world, watching sports on TV, could be a good hobby. Especially if the game you love and the team you follow appears on television live match, the mad sports lovers stick to the television as if there is no tomorrow.

Manchester_United_Logo_by_StrongzDesignzAs you might have seen from my introduction page, I am a fanatic follower of Manchester United for football team and I must admit, last few weeks have not been the best of the life so far. All started with a disappointing defeat to Bayern Munich in the first leg of quarter final first leg, followed by a heart breaking defeat to Chelsea at Old Trafford and more over, an absolutely mentally disastrous exit from Champions league at the hands of Bayern Munich FC.  I thought things will be better at Blackburn, but unfortunately another 2 dropped points will most probably cost the team the Premiership championship.  Another huge disappointment !

As the football gives joy when the team wins, it gives even more pain when the team loses. In India, most of the matches are are on air, mostly after the midnight and watching these matches through the night like owl and at the end, getting a feeling of loss, is sometimes irrecoverable. Unfortunately, if the team loses or does not win, the pain of that translates into a tiredness at work next day and sometimes lasts for almost a day or two.  Also, it does not help my rapport with my wife !

Moreover, Kolkata Knight Riders are not giving me any joy in cricket too! Although I follow it because I am a huge fan of Sourav Ganguly, and can probably take solace even if the team loses and he does well !

Life of a football fan is not easy and I am experiencing it now !
