Proud Mother - ME

I am certain most of you would chuckle thinking about convocation for Upper Kindergarten students “Imagine the little ones in black gowns with the funny black hat”.
Actually they looked cute.Well! It was Aditya’s convocation few days back and he has absolutely made me proud by narrating the long speech about his three-year experience in school, which I never considered he could. We were invited to watch the event and I was eagerly waiting for the day. It was a beautiful evening and the school premises were decked formally for the event. Lots of parents were already seated when we arrived and I was wishing that my little one Atul would co-operate throughout the event, and luckily he did. I had spent the afternoon worrying about how Adi would perform. The chief guest arrived on time for a change and the event commenced. First was a welcome song during which the kids holding torches paraded to the center stage where plenty chairs were arranged for the kids to be seated. As soon as the 200 kids settled down in their respective chairs the teacher was prepared to call the 5 kids geared up to deliver speech which included my son. These kids were standing near a corner and my heart missed a beat when Adi’s name was called first. I saw my little boy walk boldly to the center stage . I thought he would be nervous but he appeared cool and he patiently waited for the mike to be installed. It was painfully calm for a while. Then he began. THREE minutes non-stop was like eternity to me and his voice was clear and crisp. My little darling had delivered his speech in the most charismatic manner ever. I guess this would be he most unforgettable moment in my life.

For those who want to see what I mean, check out Adi’s speech.
