Happy Mother's Day, Amma...

Dear Amma,

I honestly did not know what to buy you this mother's day... And finally i decided to write a letter telling you how much you mean to me and how much I love you...

You are the world's best mother, Amma. No one in the world can be as caring and loving as you, mom. I love you for loving me. I know you do not love me alone... but everyone who knows you thinks that they are special to you. You make us feel special, mom. The infinite number of hugs and kisses you give me daily makes me feel happy, wanted and protected.

The way you wait at the gate to watch me cross the street in my cycle on my way to school... the way you kiss me good night everyday... the way you wake me up from bed on my birthday... your oil massages on diwali... the way you bite me when I do something really cute and naughty (it never pained but I did lie)... the way you call me... the way you talk to my friends, you always manage to befriend them so fast and they easily forget me..!!

It has been nearly 5 years ma... I miss you still, will always do...

I miss you dearly... I miss your kisses... I miss your touch your warmth your hand that was always there to hold... You were always there to listen to me talk amma... Miss you soooo much...

I love you loads amma.. I think god loved you more than we did.

The warmth,love and comfort in my life was lost the day you left me forever. Nobody in the whole universe can fill the void your abscence has created.

Amma, you mean the whole world to me...!!!

I want you here amma... I knw I cant see or talk to you in person again... only your physical presence is lost, mother. I know your spirit will always be there to guide me at the right time.

I want to tell you just one more time... "Amma, I love you..!!"

Missing you,
your dearest daughter.

    என் அம்மாவின் பிறந்த நாள் ...!

    ஆங்கிலேயர் ஆட்சி செய்ததுமுதல்..
    அமெரிக்கா வல்லரசானது வரை
    நினைவில் இருக்கிறது ....

    உலககோப்பை வென்ற
    இந்திய அணியின் சரித்திர வருடம்
    நியாபகம் இருக்கிறது ..

    கமலின் முதல் படமும்
    ரஜினியின் நூறாவது படமும்
    தூக்கத்தில் கேட்டாலும்
    சொல்லிவிட முடியும் ...!

    பல வருடங்களுக்கு முன்பு பெற்ற காதல் கடிதம்
    அந்த நாளின் நிமிடம் முதல் நொடி வரை
    அனைத்தும் சேகரித்து சிரிக்கிறது

    நண்பர்களோடு சுற்றிய தினம் ..
    சுதந்திர தினம் ..
    ஆசிரியர் தினம் ..
    காதலர் தினம் ...
    குழந்தைகள் தினம் ...
    எல்லாம்..எல்லாம் நினைவிருக்கிறது ....!

    ஆனால் ...

    பல பேரிடம் வேண்டியமட்டும் விசாரித்தும் ...
    பல ஆண்டுகள் பின்னோக்கி தோண்டிப்பார்த்தும் ..
    இன்னும் கண்டுபிடிக்கவே முடியவில்லை ...

    என் அம்மாவின் பிறந்த நாளை ...!நாள்

What does love mean to me?

When I hit puberty I thought love was all about kissing and having butterflies in your stomach.When I grew up a little I replaced kissing with sex and the butterflies remained.Now the definition has changed in all ways possible. I've learned that there isn't just the romantic Love there is more to it.It could be the heart swelling when you see your child do something or the smile you have when you think of your parent. This year I've decided that my daughter is my valentine. Sleepless nights and the constant anxiety are all totally worth it. The sloppy kisses that I get on rare mornings are my greatest motivator.To me love is all about the level of comfort I have with a person. You really love each other if you can fart and burp to your heart's content in each other's company. If you can have conversations about that then you are in the next level, haha!Everybody sees love differently but most would agree on the comfort part. My friend Srilakshmi and I see things d…

The Story of My Daughter's Birth

The pregnancy was a surprise. We hadn't really planned on having a baby yet and suddenly there it was those most wanted "two lines" on the home pregnancy test! I was shocked at first. I wasn't ready. But, eventually the mom instinct took over and it was love.

You get a variety of advice from everybody. Everybody is a well-wisher in the traditional indian society. For the same question you will get thousand different answers. None of it is right or wrong. What works for you is what is right.

I never did any walking. Only a little, just running errands and stuff. I did not sit up in bed every time I needed to turn during sleep. That would have made it even worse. The hardships during pregnancy is nothing close to what happens during labor. Mine is not one of those easy peasy the baby just slipped right out stories! I know why though I did not do anything to facilitate that!

I was in my 38th week. It was a thursday, I was visiting my gynec for a routine now weekly chec…

From Frogs to The Prince!

What if I wrote short open letters to all the frogs that I met in my life? Don't ask me what triggered this thought process I don't remember now, mom brains! With a toddler around it is a miracle I managed to write this blog, all credits to the notes I wrote down.

I am not going to mention names here. But if you are in this list you will know its you.

Frog #1

I knew you weren't interested in me and that you were too good for me. But then, you were perfect for my adolescent hormones, thank you for that. But the way I turned out, you might regret letting me go unnoticed.

Frog #2

Man, I was bowled over by the brains and the intelligent banter. I was quite disappointed with the looks department but then was matured enough to let it go, until one fine day you turned out to be some psycho blah blah blah stalker types. I have absolutely no regrets.

Frog #3

This was a classic case of peer pressure. I liked you but crushing on you was a side effect of having mutual friends who tho…
