It was just yesterday that I posted my little little pleasures..But that sounded too perfect isnt it? Well, things dont happen that ways in real world..so here are a few things that I get so excited about but which finally goes PHEWWW..Read on..
1. When I shop for a top and is so happy about it -only to come home and find that it doesnt fit me all that well and perfect
2.When I think of cooking a specific dish with orey imaginations of how my amma makes the same dish- only to see it coming out miserably
3.When I decide what dress I need to wear and what hairdo I shud be in, the previous day itself- only to get up the next day morning with a bad hair.
4.Arguing so much with SID - only to eat my own words later and keep asking sorries.
5.Getting a facial done and coming all excited to office wanting to be complemented- only to be asked by people "why are your eyes so tired?" Why do you look so dull?
6.Eagerly waiting for the weekend to chat with SID- only to find my internet not connecting.But thankfully, this happens rarely
7.Buying chikoos and slurping at the very thought of eating them- only to find them all not as good as they were when I bought them. Somehow, they become too soggy by the time I reach home. I must say I am bad at picking fruits and vegetables
8.Wanting to sleep long and get up real late after the noon- only to find my servant maid ringing my door bell early at 6 in the morning.
9.Getting some real good ideas on what to blog in the night- only to forget them totally the next morning
10. Posting a blog thinking to be the best of my works ever- only to find "0" comments to that post
I thought theres no better time than to write abt this if not now..esp wen the Abhiwarya wedding is happening now..I have always wondered how much money the Bachchans wud have amassed ( though its all the result of hardwork.I am not a great fan of the Bachchans..both the BIG and the junior B. Being celebrities, they cud do so much for the public, society. I have always felt that the Bachchans are always in the spotlight for awards, honours and recognitions. Unlike the southern side, where actors like chiranjeevi who stands for the cause of donating blood, and kamala hasan who is for donating various organs, rajnikanth for various social acitivities..i dont find the Bachchans involved in any..somehow, these ppl dont appeal to me as the First Family of Bollywood..May be its time we think of transferring this title to someone else..
I have always envied those who have both their grandparents cos I havent seen either of my thatha.-neither paternal nor maternal.Is it possible that u miss someone u havent seen at all, but only heard of? Atleast I fall into this category of missin my paternal grandfather whom I havent seen in my life. I do treasure some of the things like a box, some currency notes that he has used which I have duly inherited from my grandma.I dint let my grand ma use it..and I refuse to give it to anyone else too. Watever happens, I wud never spend those currency notes.I have grown up listening to all kinds of stories abt my grandfather and they have all left me inspiring. I never wonder if paati used to feel bad cos I end up talking only abt thatha all the time.And over a period of years, I have started admiring him for what he was. He was a simple school teacher.
My first prayer/ wish/ request always goes to him..and he always grants watever I ask for and wish for.My mom always tells me " thatha mattum irunthuruntha nee ippdi irukkavey matta.innum nanna irunthuruppa".I wish he was with me..ya naan innum nanna irunthu iruppen.
i wudnt want to restrict myself to just one ..may be a couple of them i have been the most happiest wen sid came into my life my niece maithri- my sisters daughter - ( i call her chinnu) was born.i happily gave away chocolates to everyone near my house. was glued on to the comp to see her snaps. she is born in the US. engagement and ya the eagerly awaited day of my life jan 20th 2008
i am glad and rather overwhelmed with watever i have in life. i feel so blessed. i have nothin to complaint abt or regret for.I AM JUST LIVING THE MOMENT, not just now, but everyday
i am home away from home..ya..kerala is anytime my first home and chennai isnt bad either! how much i have cribbed and fought with appa wen we moved to trivandrum from chennai..chennai was full of flats and tvm dint know the concept of flats. all thatha paatis in tvm.i dint have a neighbour of my age with whom i could play.i cried cos i dint get the north indian style of samosa there in tvm. funny isnt it? and to add to my woes, one day wen amma wanted me to buy somethin from a nearby shop, i happily wore a shorts n t shirt only to come back with a sullen face..all passersby ont he road uncluding autowalas, had gracefully commented ..and it was then i knew that girls wear only girlie dresses in kerala and not like chennai..oh how much i hated tvm abt 8 yrs ago.
do i feel the same now? defntly not..i miss my home,the plants n greenery there, ambalams..,aapam stew, kadala curry,pazham pori , all the kovil utsavams..walk in the musuem, beaches and more than everything speaking, hearing, living , breathing malayalam. i miss kerala..miss my tvm.wish i cud go stay there for a while..ya may be soon !
