Kate Middleton has followed the Indian tradition (proof of the Royal family’s Indian connection) by going to her parent’s house along with her baby, I said while we were having breakfast.
Well, I am happy the young lady is able to have her way, setting a kind of precedent, said my husband.
Wonder how long she will be there? I said.
May be a couple of months, he replied.
Baby George is really lucky to have received such wonderful gifts from different countries, I said.
Did India send any? He asked.
I don’t think so. Nevertheless our P.M. has conveyed his congratulations, I said.
Well, that doesn’t cost anything, he grimaced.
O.K. What according to you would be an ideal gift to the new born? He asked.
Let me think, I said.
I have a bright idea as what we should gift Baby George, said my husband excitedly.
What? I said all ears.
Arrange a visa to the best astrologer as soon as possible and send him to London so that he will cast the baby’s horoscope taking into consideration his Star, Rasi etc. and give an accurate prediction, he said.
And expect our Government to fund his passage and stay which means spending money on him? I asked.
It’s negligible when you think of the headlines the story would make in the media in U.K. in the process.
For all I know it might not get any media attention at all because to them Indian connection bears no significance! I quipped.
