We are like this only

In a Mumbai living room, doting grandparents, grand-aunts, grand-uncles, aunts and uncles gather around a little laptop screen. Everyone is smiling and saying incomprehensible things.

What's on the screen? Two tiny twins sitting at a laptop in Cinncinnati, lisping nonsense and winning hearts with every lisp. Welcome to the world of Skype in India.

"We are like this only".

This is my life. My parents and other relatives in Mexico are like that when we get on Skype with our son in the northern US :)

New technologies are amazing, especially for the eldest. Something similar occurs in our house (in Spain) when I show my brother's Facebook photos (he lives in Switzerland now) to my parents and grandmother. At first sight we seem so different, but actually are so similar! :)

This is our life too. When my son was born in ATl within 15 minutes my parents from Mumbai and my in-laws who were in London at that time saw him via skype. Even now, he sits and chats with his grandparents for hours. Remote babysitting !!!
