My ramblings and a tag

Varunavi school started since yesterday.Poor child got up at 5.40 am without any fuss,took all pinks to the school (her bag,lunch box,pencil box,pencil,eraser…….. all pink).On her way to school hubby met with a small accident and our new car had a big scratch at the back.And varunavi called me telling that a uncle doesn’t know how to drive and he came and hit us,i jumped and my head touched the roof of the car.Thank god that nothing has happened but she was late for her school.She made a card to her teacher in which she wrote I LOVE YOU MAAM and did some flowers and coloured  it.

Pinkuda terrible missed her sister.As soon as varunavi left she went and slept on varunavi’s bed and covered herself with her sister’s comforter,slept there for 1 hour or so.After sometime she started crying that she too want to go school,she brought old school bag of varunavi,kept few of her books.

When varu came back she hugged her,kissed and said i love u akka (Sister).The scene was like they both met each other after very long time and pinkuda was following her where ever varu went.Today also pinkuda got up with her sister and was crying that she wants to take bath with her and want to get ready for school.Just took her till the bus stop and came back.

My Reminiscences

This tag was pending since long.Two lovely ladies Rashmi and Smitha tagged me to write 9 most cherished moments in my life.Here comes my list :-

  Elder sister marriage was the most cherished memory in my life. We planned so much and did the marriage in a grand way. We were like a team of 4 females and did every thing by ourself.We didn’t do shopping much because my mom had brought everything before, like jeweller etc….After the marriage when my sister was leaving to her in-laws house we all thought she will cry but to everyone surprise didn’t shed a single tear. She hugged all of us and with a huge smile on her face went and sat in the car.

 We build our house when I was in my 10th class. Every day evening used to there and water the walls. Used to have so much fun there talking with workers and my mom used to send tea to the workers. Each brick in that house has got wonderful memory. It was a dream come true for my mom. I miss my house and the beautiful garden.

 Everyday morning myself and mom used to get up early and mom used to make tea for both of us. We used to sit for atleast one hour talking. My neighbours used to ask us what will be there for you both everyday mornings to talk.

 I have a lovely friend. We both met in degree but not much of friendship developed between us but we both joined same college in MBA and we became best friends. She had a Luna and we both used to ride that. The best part was the Luna, the pillion rider seat is lower than the driver seat. I don’t know whether anyone laughed on seeing us riding but we both used to laugh so much everyday. And we both used to spend our pocket money on the petrol. Her name is also saritha.We both worked in the same bank till I got married and left the Hyderabad.

 We used to have a great friendship among the cousins, now not much as few of them are in US and few have become busy in there life. When we were small we all used to do so much of window shopping. There was a shop by name Khadi Bhandar and every birthday in my cousin’s house we used to buy small gifts from that shop and present it to my cousins.

 Had so much fun in the rains. Never used raincoat instead I used to cover my bag with the raincoat and get drenched in the rain. My house was little far from the school bus stop and roads used to be full with rain water. Myself and my sister used to go home playing in the rain. The shopkeepers on the road used to calls us in and used to tell us wait till the rain stops but we never listened to them. And evening my mom used to use the same road and those shop keepers used to tell my mom what we did.

 I worked part time in standard chartered credit card sales, the first salary i got was Rs.1000/- and I brought a shirt for my father,saree for my mother and gave Rs.100/- to each of my sisters and what ever was left I gave it to my granny. My granny was so happy that day. Still i remember the smile on my fathers face when he wore that shirt.This was in 90’s.

 Father used to drive Jawa and we could make out the sound that it is his vehicle. During holidays he used to come home in afternoon to check what we were doing. One day we made upma and that day my dad parked his vehicle very far from the house and came walking. He knocked the door and my sister saw him from the window and we threw everything in a bucket of water in the bathroom. He could smell the upma but we told him we were watching tv.

 My cousin who is 7 years elder to me likes Jayaprada.My granny never allowed her to go out except to school and college. She used to give me 25 paisa to get jayaprada’s postcard picture and each postcard was costing 10 paisa and I used to get 2 post cards and rest 5 paisa used to buy a Parle lozenges.This was in 80’s.

Aa Lalu Mamma

Aa Lalu motherhood.It is a wonderful experience of being a mother of two.Have two different memories and has to behave differently with each one of them.One is silent, timid, sombre, calm, innocent,responsible and soft natured and other one is naughty,cranky and much more.Wonder how the elder one survives in this bad world,she learns to climb furniture from her younger sister, who like a P.E. teacher teaches her each step to do.

This time i have been tagged by two lovely ladies IHM and Smitha.The tag is about “what i like best about being about mother”.The tag says i have to write five things I love about being a mother.

The five things i love being a mother is:-

1.Calling me amma,mom,mama,amadu

2.Endless blow of flying kisses she gives me after getting into the school bus every morning

3.Begs me not to cry when i become emotinal, wipes my tears with her tiny hands.

4.They both give me a hug soon after getting up,their eyes are still closed.

5.When i am angry she runs to me before i say anything and says a lolu mama (i love you mama) and all my angry dissolves like a ice cube.

I wanna write more……..

1.Pain of begin operated just vanished after seeing her for the first time.Unshaped head,hairy
face,thin long fingers with long nails,pinkish body wrapped in a cloth and cling ed to me on the bed. When young used to cry a lot for a small cut and now doesn’t mind even if the stitches hurt me.I have taken snaps of her fingers,her legs,her hands,her hair and her face and now i show her this is you, when you were small.She just can’t take out her eyes from those snaps.

2.Motherhood is enjoyed more when by baby gets down from the school bus,hugs and tells me that mama you are looking smart by leaving your hair.And also she gives me compliments i look good in jeans then the Salwars/sarees.

3.You know you are a mother when there is only one piece of cake left,which you have to share with your kids.

4.The sleepless night when she was down with fever.Before kids never missed my sleep,nor got up in between the sleep.But now getting up with slightest movement of hers.She wears anklets on her legs,now i can read the sound of her anklets.I can make out if she is getting up/she is changing her sides/she got down from the bed etc….

5.I have become more responsible and caring then before.Have to be careful in what i am talking,how i am behaving as kids learn from us.

6.My baby tells her father that amma has got lot of house work,today you order biryani and juice for amma,she wont cook today.And everyday morning she says amma you do your work today on holidays i will help you.She just loves to help me.She likes me to bake cake and till the cake is done she doesn’t leave the kitchen.And always tries to lick the batter when i am not there in the kitchen.

7.Used to keep a book in handy to read about the milestones she crossed.Called up mom for very milestone she passed,like her first turn,her first word,her first step etc….And now she sees her little sister crossing those milestones and shouts amma she is crawling,she is walking,she is saying thanku…….

8.Now she is my mom.I don’t know arabic and she learns from the school and she teaches me the letters.I am learning a new language from her.

There is much to write about the both my darlings.I don’t have much expectation nor i want them to be a doctor/engineer/etc ,i only want them to be a good human beings.Sometimes i worry how they will face this bad world alone when they leave our house for good.
I would like Pooja ,ramya and sandhya do this tag,pls let me know when you do it.

btw today she got down from the bus with tears and started crying saying that her teacher didn’t say bye to her:(
