Vishama Kaara Kannan Arrived 1 day in Advance…!

27 08 2013

Advance Happy Krishna Jayanthi / Janmashtami to all the buddies out there..! 🙂

Now hows that possible? Naliki thane Krishna ku Happy Birthday?? how come the advance wishes…

Here is the What? Why? How? When? and Where? of the Happennings today…

Scene 1: Tick tick click tick click click- me in morning shift Office –  Called amma to put mokkai -the wake up call to correct the bad looks before other colleagues in regular shift come and check out my sleepy beauty – Amma enna ma pannara, cheedai thattai murukku ellam panna start pannitiya?

Amma: yenga Un ponnu pannara attagasathula.. enna panna theriyuma??? and the augh riot begins i’m laughing and rolling and laughing harder and harder.. as my mom rants away about my little Nik was rolling out her mischevious acts one by one…!!

Scene at home: Nik wakes up as soon as i left for my shift – mom: Oh adadadada murukku plan poche..! – regular work starts feed the kid – clean her – run with her – clean the peepee and other mess  – clean her – feed her – routine..

mom gives her a bath, dresses her up and turns to the vessels in the sink – Nik runs and grabs the aavin butter box – quietly (with all the jal jal of the thandai some giggles and a lot of kid language) “quietly” comes out of the kitchen checking whether my mom noticed her.. the minute my mom turned, she ran with the butter – butter slipped and fell – she runs to grab it – the butter slips from inside the box and falls outside – she slips and falls – mom to chase the butter – nik to run home into the kitchen grabbing the butter box – and “thump” she sat near the arisi mavu ulundhu mavu mixture kept for the cheedai stuff..

dips her hand into the lot and smears it on the face.. takes some and spreads it in the floor – some lands on her head and some everywhere – mom coming back with the butter – semma shock about the white creature sitting there covered in on the floor covered flour dust on and around her..

Entry dad after hs bath – nik runs to him and hugs his legs with all might – his legs are white with flour now – she giggles and walks away happily – Dad runs to catch her and give her a second bath and to get a shower again for himself

Moral: Vishama kaara Kannan has arrived…!!!

Vijayadasami – Navrathri

3 10 2011

Navrathri in itself means galatta time.. the entire process f keeping golu with my mom dad and brother.. getting all friends and relatives come home.. the paatu padungo episode.. sundal eating episode.. keeping thambulam area wise and age wise.. its a whole fun filled power packed 10 days..

the last two days are the best…
second last THE SARASWATHI pooja day.. The day the studying clan celebrates.. because all books are to be kept for pooja.. we are requested not to read.. vera yenna varam venum?? but this day turns out to be boring because, the TV’s dont have anything worthwhile to show apart from the “vijayadasami dhinathandru ungal sun tv yil.. thiraikki vandhu sila natkale aana putham pudhiya nagaichuvai thirai padam.. paapaiya patti mandram.. thirai kannotam, pudhiya padalgal etc” ads… there’l will be some mokkai old film (i do not mean saraswathi sabadham – i like that movie) where the ads take up 3 hours and movie takes the rest of the time in between.

and THE VIJAYADASAMI DAY 🙂
what i love about this is.. the previous day itself.. me and my friends and our moms go to our dance class “KALASAGARA” and start cleaning up the place to decorate it for the grand vijayadasami day.. we dust the place.. sweep.. and put up decor.. our dear Malathy miss also helps and cheers… so yeah.. we tie ribbons up from the roofing.. and wala.. in some time.. the entire place will brim with expression of celebration..! click here
then we all decide what we wear the next day.. dhavani or saree.. and discuss different colors and retire for the day.. by this time it will be past dinner time… so its just about hitting the sack to wake up early and dress up..

and so comes THE DAY.. we all deck up and go to ma’am’s place aka dance class (KALASAGARA) with plates of fruits to offer to our beloved GURU… take her blessings.. wear our salangais and dance 🙂 this is the best part..

after this is the time for house hunting.. all friends share the cars and available two wheeler’s and go to each other’s houses.. sing group songs for the respective golu’s.. get nice gifts and sundal… 🙂

how much i miss 12 ranganathan gardens… :O





Puppy Love

21 09 2011

duke and dusky were neighbors.. they’ve known each other for quite sometime now.. duke has been living there ever since he was born.. and dusky’s folks moved in a few years back.. they have been best of friends ever since.. it was an everyday ritual to go for an evening walk around the park.. it is the most enjoyable thing.. they get to meet their friends golden roz, daisy, tuna, mike, sully and many others.. they all play and then return home after about a while..

But today was different.. the climate was misty so no one came to the park.. it was noon time.. duke had finished his lunch and was pondering outside his house.. occasionally taking glances at dusky’s window.. over time, he has realized that his feeling for dusky was more than being neighbors or friends… he was in love.. and his opinion, today was the best day to declare it.. the climate was romantic and dusky was very happy in the morning when he saw her…

the sun climbed down from the sky.. and evening was setting in.. as always dusky came and both of them strode away from the apartments towards the park… as expected by duke, the other friends had not turned up.. both of them enjoyed running and breathing the fresh evening air for a while.. then as running slowed down to a brisk stride.. duke decided to make use of the opportunity.. as they crossed a private bend.. he said “Woof woof woof woof…woooooooo” dusky was overwhelmed with joy… she also barked “woof woooooo” and both of them “woooood” in unison and fell over each other licking madly in joy..

in the mean time, it started getting dark.. so they walked back home… and ever since, the walk in the park never remained the same..





That Chor came to my house yesterday

22 08 2011

Was it only the makkhan that was stolen or her heart was stolen too?
Was makkhan smeared only on her face when HE tried to wriggled out of her clutches or was her heart too smeared with some of it?
Was only the pot of makkhan broken when He tried to run away or her heart broke too?

Still, she goes running behind that makhan chor (read chittha chor) while he goes to hide behind his mother(read blessed yashodha ma) and tell her maiyya, i dint steal it maiyya she fed it to me.. and when the pot slipped from her hand, i got scared and i came running and she’s chasing me blaming that i broke her pot and stole her makkhan.. yashodha maiyya laughs at the gopika.. and again she loses to kanhaiyya’s pranks and returns to her house to make more makkhan hoping kanhaiyya will come by again…!

Was it only the makkhan that melted or did her heart melt too?

Yeah, the same Kanhaiyya the Makkhan chor.. the chittha chor.. the madhav.. the gopalak.. the muralidhar.. the ghansham.. the same natkhat krishna 🙂 HE came to my house yesterday.. He ate butter and the other stuff that I had made for Him 🙂 and tell you what? the preparations tasted extra good because kanhaiyya had eaten it first 🙂

 

Glossary:
Makkhan: Butter
Chor: thief
maiyya: mother
Kanhaiyya – Krishna
makkhan chor: one who steals butter
Chittha Chor: one who steals our heart
Madhav: another name of Krishna
Gopalak: one who cares for the Cows
Muralidhar: one who has the flute
Ghanshyam: the dark complexioned
natkhat: naughty

 





An appointment with Sri Varalakshmi

14 08 2011

I have no idea when i made this appointment.. but She kept it and made me keep it too… it was fun this friday (the last friday of shravana / aadi maasam) before the full moon day ( avani avittam / rakshabandhan) when the meeting took place.. well so to say.. Varalakshmi ji was the guest of our house…

lemme tell you how we invited her and the stuff that happened during the meeting…
i was so exited about meeting Her.. my saasuma had kept a kalasham (silver shombu – small pot like vessel and a coconut smeared with manjal on top of the kalasham) the kalasham contained rice and other necessary things.. the Kalasham was kept on a platter of rice.. and our Varalakshmi ji’s face like image made of silver was decorated appropriately and kept on the kalasham… we took this to the entrance and invited Her amidst vedic chants… it was lovely…

then the vadhyar came.. he was to guide us through the proceedings of the meeting.. in the mean time.. we engaged Varalakshmi ji with flowers and small talk… then at the stipulated time for the meeting to start.. Vadhyar ji took us through the Sanskrit verses of the conversation with Varalakshmi ji.. and She conversed with us in the most divine language.. the language of LOVE.

once the meeting got over.. we had Varalakshmi ji kindly accept the food that we had prepared for Her to relish after the meeting.. after serving the Divine guest.. we also relished all that was prepared for the day…

all in all.. a lovely appointment.. and quality time spent… Varalakshmi ji… I humbly request you to keep visiting us.. I’ll make special dishes for you each time… 🙂





Getting over and healing yourself…

9 08 2011

Here.. i’m gonna elaborate on how to mentally heal yourself and get over things.. please note this is strictly not like this: you scrape your knee in a grave way.. put your palm over it.. and say “heal thy self”.. and the wound vanishes leaving the place spotlessly clean.. this is not that..! this post will say.. how you can heal your way out of being depressed.. or something similar..

OK so here is you sitting in a corner.. your feeling very sad.. say maybe because you fought with your mommy for a very silly reason.. (I chose this because I’ve done it many times and felt like killing myself for the same). OK lets state the reason.. mommy has had a very rough day.. she was not able to get her work finished despite slogging for the whole day with the corporation having shut down the power in peak summer. you have also had a tiresome day in college since the College day practice is neck breaking and you have loads of class room notes to complete. you come back home and feel desperate to have some fries.. you want mamma do make some fries.. she turns you down saying there is a power shut down and that she is very tired.. you also give in and ask for a cup of juice.. she makes the juice and hands it to you.. and while handing it, it slips from your hand and the juice spills on the entire floor attracting ants and flies.. mommy goes into a rage and screams at you to get out of the room and start with the notes.. you stamp on the ground in anger and leave the room fighting back tears since it wasn’t intentional from your end.. mamma is angry for adding work to her already burdened shoulder when the guests are expected to come in about an hour.. she totally dint want to scream at you.. but it just happened in the spur of the moment.

what will be your thoughts now: why cant mamma just understand that it wasn’t my fault.. i thought she had still not handed it to me and she was holding it..what the HELL…??!!??!! after all juice.. and i asked sorry also.. still she wants to scream at me.. God knows what pleasure she gets from it Damn it…!

mamma’s thoughts:  can’t she look at me when i’m giving the juice to her.. i don’t understand what was so important in the mobile phone which couldn’t wait for a minute till she took the juice in her hands. but poor thing she was already hungry and i refused her fries.. and screamed for spilling the juice.. poor girl i’ll make the fries and patch up with her..

mamma goes and makes the fries (99 percent of the time this does happen) and goes to the daughter.. now it is up to us to give in and talk to her and smile.. our tender smile means a LOT to our parents..! just imagine how much it would hurt her when she comes to where you are sitting angrily staring at the books not able to concentrate with the fries and you turn away refusing to talk to her just because she asked you to get out 🙂 we were brought into this world by our mommy and she is our first and best ever friend.. this thing called maturity comes in here.. just by smiling, taking one of those fries and shoveling it into her mouth will bring so much happiness to her and she’l end up making all your favorite dishes for dinner who knows 🙂

this process is called getting over things and healing yourself mentally.. there by you give up on what is disturbing you.. that is where the key is.. only if you let go of something, you can grab another.. if your hands are filled already, where will there be place for new things? similarly, fill your mind with things that will make you smile.. let go of those sad things that frustrate you.. let go of grudges.. bring in gratitude.. healing yourself lies here.. its a choice you make.. you can choose to get out and wash yourself or remain in the slush and get dirtier. how long will it take to just turn around and call your friend and tell her what she did was not right and that you dint like it.. and just letting go? or think about someone who snatched away your opportunity of say going abroad from the project? i know how depressing that would be.. maybe it is not time for you to go yet MAYBE.. but if you just let go saying i WILL get a better opportunity and sincerely work towards it.. i’m  sure you’l end up way better…!!

try it 🙂 it works with almost anything…! it just lies in how we tell ourselves “chal kake.. its not a happy ending, so picture baki hai dosth” may be take a refreshing break at the spa or get in touch with an old friend.. getting over and healing yourself lies in whether we choose to hold on.. or let go , visualize and believe that something better is in store and work towards materializing it.. i’m sure no one can stop what we want from reaching us then…!
