The past two weeks went off so quickly.The children were at home as schools were closed for Hajj.Hajj is an obligatory ritual performed by Muslims throughout the world. Muslims from all over the globe come to the Kingdom, Saudi Arabia to perform this rite. During this period,offices,schools and other establishments remain closed. I had many things planned for the break,but only a few materialized How so ever,they were all worth while.Since the boys were going to be at home I had already organized some activities to keep them occupied.We got them some crafts and puzzles and kept them busy throughout.It was a relief as I didn’t have to give ears to squabbles and complains , as they were pretty much occupied with activities. While the children were engaged in various indoor games ,I found ample time for myself too.And it was during this time that a program that my husband and I watch eagerly on television, came to its closing stages. The past few months,a popular reality show telecasted in an Indian television channel,Vijay TV, kept my husband and I spellbound. It wasn’t a family serial or a game show that usually kept most housewives entertained but a talent competition. This was aimed for aspiring juniors with a good voice.One particular youngster mesmerized us right from the beginning and a great sense of euphoria settled in when he was awarded the title after beating four other contestants in the Grande Finale.I was as surprised as my children when we realized,hubby dear,who otherwise was not a television enthusiast,was thoroughly enjoying this program , all because of this 10 -year-old who sang with such dedication and passion.Three cheers to Aajeedh!!! Hip hip hurrah!!
