My eleven month old daughter got her ears pierced today. I very well know it will not be a pleasant experience. My friends did warm me up to the occassion. I was prepared for it. Still those five minutes of screaming from daughter tugged my heart………I mean, how could a father be party to concious hurting of his daughter…. Anyways, the experience is behind me… gotto admit my daughter looks pretty with her new ear studs and her ‘Pattu Pavadai’ ( silk dress ).
