Kareena’ Beta Taimur Khan
Mumbai: Nawab of Pataudi has come again to this world. Mansur Ali Kan Pataudi’s son Saif Ali Khan and his wife Kareena Kapoor Khan had announced on Tuesday that they were blessed with a baby boy.
The boy was named Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi. Taimur, the Lame, known to students of history as Tamerlane, is not a pleasant name for Indians who adore Tagores, Kapoors and Pataudis. They would not have imagined the name to be given to the son of Saif Ali Khan Pataudi and Kareena Kapoor and the grandson of Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore. Taimur was a notorious tyrant who massacred thousands of Indians. The Mongol invader conquered Persia and large parts of Central Asia by killing whoever came his way. He styled himself as ‘Sword of Islam ‘ Saif Ali defended his choice saying that Taimur means ‘iron’. The Taimur of Mangolia has an iron will. His name is also referred as an example for will power and to never say never again. It is also part of history. He suggested that they had taken the virtues in Taimur when they thought of a name for their child. Taimur Pataudi has become famous instantaneously on the Twitter because of his famous parents and also the strange name they selected for him. The tiny Pataudi is all over the Twitter.
Kareena who celebrated her motherhood by not confining herself to home like other celebrities do is sure to allocate adequate time to take care of her child. She has distinguished herself by the way she sported her baby bump in every get together. One of them was as recently as last Sunday evening on a terrace of a hotel here with close friends including Salman Khan and his girlfriend.
