The Girl Baby

I found the inspiration here In Mr.Narayanan's blog .. (tamil poem)
Being a girl, i feel strongly about this..............

and this is my take on it...

The girl says......

I always prayed for a girl baby
My mom would say..........
For that one word of hers
which i closely carry in my heart
I never once want my parents
to even think in their dreams
that i am a liability
I will do everything for them
that a boy might do.......

When i attended a wedding
and was a part of the boy's side family
and saw the girl's parents
carry the boy's luggage
I vowed to myself
I wouldn't have it that way!!
They aren't a lesser being for giving birth to me!
they are infact, superior......

"They aren't a lesser being for giving birth to me!" -> Totally agree with you..
"they are infact, superior" -> Totally disagree with you... :) You are carrying the attack into the opposite camp monu! I believe, no parents are superior/inferior for giving birth to a child, boy or girl. There is no case of superior or inferior here!

Your site monu, I found to be interesting. When I was searching for Baby Name yours was the most eye catching. While working on my site Baby Name I have been looking for ways to make it better and found yours to be helpful. Thanks!
