A close blood relative decided to adopt a child after 7 years of marriage.

This is an attempt to assuage such apprehensions. Yashoda brought up Krishna as her own and she did not do badly from what the scriptures say:).
The inspiration for this ad was a piece in Carnatic Music which goes
"Enna tavam shaithane yashoda, engum nirai parabhramam, amma enrazhaika." which asks the question, "what penance did Yashoda do, that the Universe call ed her "mother"!!
It is a Krithi By "Papanasam shivan"in Kappi Ragam (Janya Ragam of Kharahara priya),set to Aadi Thalam. It is sung by Chinmayi and Baby Nimisha
