In his excitement at attaining fatherhood Mr Chen didn’t even notice the awkward silence in the hospital’s nursery. His wife had been subdued in the months leading up to the delivery. But Mr Chen knew all about hormonal changes and mood swings.

He was totally enamoured by the baby with the Mickey Mouse ears.
