We had a small bornahan ceremony for Nisarga today.
For those who don’t know, a bornahan happens for small kids and they get showered with berries and other sweet things to eat. It is usually done some time after the 14th of Jan.
The evening began quite well. My parents arrived nice and early and were able to spend a good fun hour with Nisarga before he got tired and wanted to sleep.
So I put him to sleep. The rest of the guests were late, and we figured that my little man could have a nap by the time they arrived. This is when everything changed.
Nisarga was fast asleep when everyone came, and I ended up changing him as he slept. He got really cranky, but nodded off back to sleep once I was done. The ceremony began with the baby fast asleep, and he woke up startled when the shower of sweet stuff happened. He took it bravely for a while, but soon had enough and wanted to go back to sleep but was too wound up. It didn’t help that I was wearing a sari and he found me strange like that.
I changed to regular clothes, got baby out of his now sweaty, sticky clothes, we had a bath and finally called it a day. All in all, nice pics, and it wasn’t too bad, but not an experience I want to repeat.
