Donna A Sanzari Women's Hospital It was minus 5 degree celsius outside the Donna A Sanzari Women's Hospital It is a meeting point of India and America giving all to enjoy an indescribable happiness, a fulfilment of a long-cherished dream that Ritu and Rohan will have their ancestor in America. In a world that tends to divide and break and creating confusion, this baby brings the message of fusion and union of two countries India and America the ancient and the modern civilisation. A girl child is Shakti in India and it is hoped that this child will emerge as the most powerful American woman of Indian origin. Here the personal is transcended and the book may be read as a general literary creation.

Indeed, in a world that tends to separate, to impose partitions and raise hostility, the birth of this beautiful baby girl creates bridges: the authors, thus, highlight the time of her birth, both in India and in the US, while fostering a life of free and unconditional movement from one continent to another, from the culture of her origin towards always new cultures......This vibrant collection oozes love, admiration, marvel, tenderness and, for the reader, it is truly refreshing. Quoting William Blake, both authors invite their reading public to join them in their “song of innocence”, in the celebration of the daily wonders of a life that has to be lived at its fullest, with the enthusiasm of the first day, and the awareness of the last.
Daniela Rogobete, Assistant Professor, University of Craiova
In any culture and tradition any child’s birth is special, it is a gift of God, a new beginning, the best guarantee that there’s no full stop to our ride – or, as Carl Sandburg put it, “a baby is God’s opinion that life should go on” – but in this case, the coming into the world of a daughter’s daughter makes it twice special....All the tenderness and the joy inspired by the birth of a daughter, and with it world of apprehensions, fears and anxieties connected to what the future might bring along, are re-lived with higher intensity as a grand-daughter is a good opportunity for her grand-parents to give life a fresh start.
