|I was born to Mr. A.C.Kochunni and Mrs. Girija.K.Unni at Balaji Hospital among beautiful long Ashoka trees in Chennai. |
My mother used to say that I used to be a very cute looking child and that she used to tie up my hair right on top, complete with a peacock feather. Those were really great times, I guess.
As a child, I do not have vivid memories of what I used to do then. I used to however remember the small yellow ball game, I used to play with my mother tossing them on the steps, very carefully so that I dont disturb the stout house owner having his mighty afternoon siesta downstairs.
My Father used to arrive at 6:00 pm in the evening, having a small snack and usually we went to the famed Elliots beach in Beasant nagar, Chennai. I was the first child on my mother`s side in my generation and hence the toys, ornaments etc. I received from my maternal uncles were always numerous.
It was around two years later, that my sister was born. She was named Shruthi meaning "Tune" or simply music.
Life was Perfect !!!
