Nishant on 29-5-10

Yesterday i reached Mettupalayam in the evening about 7 pm. The growing traffic made my journey in annur - mettupalyam difficult. The brighter headlight of today's cars also makes night traveling a nightmare. He was awake. Priya and mohana were there. Nishant is now responding well to sounds. He also look at faces. He drink more supplemental food - lactogen. In the evenings he sleeps less. Here are some cute pictures taken yesterday and today.

Shiva also came from chennai in the evening. He has joined  a Mainframe course in chennai.

Today, Our wedding day

We complete our one year journey together. Exactly one year ago i tied the knot with priya. Today we celebrate our first year wedding anniversary. There have been many ups and down during this period. We got our first male child during this year. It is a blessing of well-wishers, friends and almighty that is behind this. A journey has just begun.

Today its as usual for me. Most couple wear a new clothes go to temple in anniversary. I am not inclined to follow that routine. In the evening i am going to Mettupalayam. At least to enjoy some time with the kid and wife. It will energize me for the next one year.

Nishant on 23.05.10

This week we brought him to our home at kaniyur. It is now the auspicious month of vaikasi and third month from his birth. He was born during panguni. New borns are taken to father's home on odd numbered months. On the same day we take him back to mettupalayam so it is convenient for her mother to take care of him.

One remarkable change is his face resembles more of his maternal grandma. Coming months will change this further.

Tamilnadu +2 / HSC results on 14th may

The Tamilnadu state board +2 / HSC Examination results will be published on tomorrow at 9 AM. After an years of serious education, handwork, tuition etc the much awaited results will be out tomorrow. Its a tense moment for both parents and students. The +2 marks will determine their fate and future. For professional degrees like engineering and medical no entrance exam will be held. Only the +2 marks will determine the qualification for entry into engineering and medical degrees in Tamilnadu.

The results will be out by tomorrow at 9 AM in the morning. I expect the servers will be down by heavy volume of queries. About 4 lac students have written the examination. The following sites are popular for +2 results.

The official Government website for board exam results

The website for +2 results

The squarebrothers website for results

The Dinamalar website for results

Ok students. all the best. Don't give up hope when the results are not in your favor. Success and failure is part of the life. Take it easy. Each year we see more suicide cases of students due to failure in examination. Mere passing or failing an exam is nothing in life. Those who passed in exams failed in life. Those failed in exams passed in life with flying colors. Cheers!

I took these pictures on the evening when he was awake and playing after drinking some milk. His apetite is growing more. Now we supplement his breast milk by Nestle lactogen 1. It is an iron fortified infant formula manufactured by nestle India, suitalbe for newborns and infants below 6 months of age. When mothers breast milk is not sufficient you can use this formula.

I took a video clip also which could not be posted on blogger as the video embed link is not available in post editor. Blogger has removed the video embedding features for some reason.

Jupiter (Guru) Dasa starts for me

In Indian Astrology Jupiter is considered the most beneficial planet. Even if all the planets are ill posited in a horoscope chart jupiter's aspect can bring some releif for that house. Jupiter rules the houses Sagittarius (Danush) and Pisces (Meena) in the rasi / zodiac. Jupiter is exalted in the sign Cancer (kadaka). Jupiter is auspicious for Mesha laga (Aries ascendant). Jupiter's vimshottari dasa period is 16 years. It follows the dasa of rahu.

Generally Rahu dasa is not good if rahu is not posited well. For me (mesha lagna) rahu is posited in Leo (simha rasi) sign. This sign is enemic for rahu. Natural malefics likfe rahu should not occupy the 5th bhava which is a tri-kona house. So this comibination gave me many sufferings and failures during rahu dasa. I faced many difficulties during this 18 years rahu period. My career was not stable. I got frequent job changes. Was not well paid for my job. Mental sufferings were experienced. Physical comfort were deneid. Frequent fruitless travels were carried out. Good posited rahu will give health, wealth, victory over enemies, raise in position etc. Ok now its is all over. As of yesterday (10-05-2010) jupiter dasa starts for me. In my horoscope jupiter is both 9th lord and 12 lord. That is Guru is lord of bagya sthana and vyaya sthana. This means subh vyaya or expenditure of good deeds. Also jupiter is posited at 4th house. The fourth house represents mother, house and vehicle. So during my jupiter dasha these 3 houses will be activated. Also the 2nd house where the fourth lord moon is located will be activated. Jupiter also aspects 8th, 10th and 11th house by its 5th, 7th and 9th aspects. These houses also will get benefits during jupiter dasha.

May the planet lord jupiter show me a prosperous path in life!

Nishant on 2-5-10

Nishant has entered his 2nd month of life. His apetite is growing more. His mothers milk is not enough for him. He started crying for milk even after many feeding from his moter. We are looking for supplements at this stage. The alternative is cow's milk. But cow's milk is not much suitable for infants below 1 years. As per American Association of Paediatirician (APP) cow's whole milk given to infants below 1 year of age could lead to anemia (deficiency of iron) . Also it could lead to dehydration of babies because of the presence of sodium in cows milk. But in India despite these warnings many feed their baby with cow's milk. Many mother's won't produce enough breast milk to feed their baby. The baby's milk need increase over time. The demand increase but not the supply. Other alternative is nutrition supplements from food companies. Nestle's Lactogen 1 is other alternative for infants below 6 months of age. It is easy to digest, fortified with iron and other essential minerals and vitamins. It is sold at rupees 201 per 500 grams. Reasonably priced!

Mother's can increase their breast milk by taking more vegetables, and fruits, fish, muttons.etc. They should drink plenty of water or fruit juice.
