Shyam's Annaprashan

Shyam, as baby of two cultures, will probably have two of many ceremonies. Here is his second feeding ceremony, this time at Ishani's parents' place in Guwahati.

The irony is in spite of two ceremonies and many people putting many spoons to his lips, he is still not on solids.

Updated with minor tweaks to the language of the post, removing improper pronoun reference: "A baby of two cultures, I expect Shyam...." which suggested I was a baby of two cultures. Vestige from the GMAT days.

Shyam's Choroonu

Today we had a ceremony for symbolic feeding of solids for Shyam. He has a teeny taste of a mash of rice, banana, payasam, papad and salt. He also got to dress up in a kurta and wear some jewellery. He was a well behaved baby through the entire ceremony and even did some singing at the end. :)
