World’s best dad

Off late or rather often I find myself talking about my father whenever some instances in day to day life comes which reminds me of what my father would do or used to do or would be doing then and I find myself cherishing those moments! Indeed I can quote;’ Old as she was, she still missed her daddy sometimes’…

The interesting part of this emotive start is most of the memoirs brings smile and are funny too!

Many a times I have said this to my husband and whomsoever I spoke with and the topic of families and childhood days came and when I spoke about my dad that my dad should have born in the current generation seeing his ways of life:

He loves to maintain his ‘social network’ and is quite successful in that without using Facebook, however he does not understand ‘F’ of Facebook or better say ‘I’ of Internet. We including kids in family have tried so many times, but no gain 😥 .He knows only one thing ‘take the print out’ 😉

And when I talk of taking print outs, or rather say habit of collecting information (again something which even I do, but the ways are different), my dad is incomparable. He is very conscious of the current affairs’ related to politics specially, about education, about software and software company news, this one because his kids (we both) are associated with that. He would take paper cuttings and carefully file it, so that he can share them with us, when we meet. So much connected with us, touch wood!

He has keen interest in latest products in market; he loves trying out international brands of clothes and shoes,way more interested than men of his generation ;).We always had all the electronic gadgets in our home, latest with the technology, thanks to dad’s interests!

He likes trying out different and new kind of food, but undoubtedly loves food made by my Mom(his wife 😛 ),though would rarely admit that. My mom would often say even when she’s on deathbed, he would ask her to cook first for the day and then die ;).You know this is their way of showing attachment :D. He’s so foodie (of course, I inherit his this part or almost all part of his nature ;)) that if he has invitation from multiple places for feast on the same day, he would make sure he visits all the places, not only for formality but for eating too :P, he would love to try out some of the spreads all all places, only to end up with an upset stomach but happy otherwise :D. All in the family always have a good laugh on this behavior of my father. The benefit of this habit of dad and awesome culinary skill of Mom was that, we always had privilege of tastiest food at home and even out of home 😀

He’s quite good in interacting with people, be it anybody, even my friend circle…so quite a social person. Give him a chance to interact with a friend and end of day, he would have more of his/her bio-data than me 😉 quite an inquisitive person he’s.

He loves travelling and exploring different places; has travelled a lot in India during his studies and keeps recalling those experiences when visiting those places again or when we go to those places, he would share those days reminisces and such talks are quite refreshing…

I have so many recollections with dad, that I can keep them jotting and it would not end even then…

Today he’s on the way to Hyderabad with Mom and my Masi, Mausa and kiddo cousin Arnav and I am really excited to meet all of them. I would not be missing them for some time now…Hope to have an awesome time in coming few days!

Love you Papa and Love you Mom!

PS. Now these are coming post pokes from Arnav aka Bonnie after his experiences with ‘dad the great’; he was like, I should certainly enter these in the write-up. So his experiences of which me and my bro and all others would agree…when we are travelling by train, dad has to get down at all the stations and take a stroll compulsorily and return with the something or other from the station, especially if that place is famous for some thing: like Agra and ‘Agra ke pethe’,Allahabad and ‘Allahabad ke amrood(guava)’,Nagpur and ‘Nagpur ke santre(oranges)’,etc. When we were very young, we would get scared when train would start and he would not be around, fearing that he might be left behind at the station ;).All in relation would say that, he would only not venture out at stations that would come across in the travel while he’s sleeping ;),a little exaggeration, I know… but this is how family talks happen 😀

And the latest news is dad again wants to learn computers and this time he’s asked bro to bring his old laptop along, so that he can learn :),let’s see how much progress he makes!

Folks, because of huge situational demand and the amount of stories and moments I want to share and keep for records, I will be updating this blog from time to time…

-> The latest development is: My cousin helped my Father to open his Facebook account and dad proudly calls my younger brother, sharing the news of his FB account being opened and now he would get an account setup for our Mom too…the tone was how he got his bank account opened in a new bank and will get one opened for Mom too  😉 😀

I see beauty here!


 

When I witness the golden sunset over the amber hills...when I gaze at the moon shinning so bright in the night...when I stand still at the seashore and the cool breeze caresses me...and that sweet smell of soil before it rains...
I see beauty,awesome beauty,real beauty!

God took the soil and created homo sapiens,the masterpiece,whose beauty is incomparable...we have consciousness and thought,motivation and emotion,we fall in love and feel the pain and I see divine artistry here!

The Supreme being paints each sunrise and each sunset with his hand on his canvas,called universe...he took all the love within his heart and gave us beauty in abundance...

I find beauty in an innocent smile,deep-set eyes,a loving hug,helping hands,soothing song,in fact in anything or anybody as beauty is not restricted in nature,it is up to individual to decide and feel,what is beautiful...

For a mother,a child will be always beautiful,whatsoever others think...
For a potter beauty lies in his wheel...for a farmer its the rain...for hungry it is the food...for lonely it is the company...
It is just the perception and the situation which decides what we see beauty in...

let our thought be free...and realize everything is beautiful in its' own way
The beauty of summer is heat,the beauty of winter is cold,the beauty of fall is dying life,the beauty of spring is the birth of nature...the earth is the real beauty,the air we breathe in is the real beauty,the water which quenches our thirst is the real beauty!

Beauty is in you and me,like a love in its flowing song,forever to become free and inside for evermore to long...

Beauty, they say, is in the eyes of the beholder
It’s everywhere
Beauty is in everything,
If you search for it!

it’s okay

I am a kind of person who believes it is very unfair to make generalized assumptions about anything,specifically human beings.

Many a times I am into serious conversations with people,asserting,how one should not have pre-conceived notion about somebody just because you inferred something from somebody similar.Its is very natural for every body I guess to have experiences good as well as bad with people we interact in day to day life and then consciously or sub-consciously create an image about a class of people,by just having an experience of few from that class.

By class I mean anything;it can be men having opinion about women,women on men,one generation of people on another,people from one state on people of another state,people speaking language-x on people speaking language-y,students of college-a on students of college-b,residents of country-I on residents of country-P,etc etc etc...The list will be never ending,isn't it?

I hope all will agree,many a times we all make such comments and or frame certain opinions and also many a times differ from somebody on their opinions,and all this is very much humane,I would say!

Now,why am I justifying it,you would wonder!Well that's because though I myself refrain from such generic assumption because of interaction with few corrupted samples out a big lot,however I have also realized there is some sort of genuine truth behind any such opinion;because after all,when there is a class of people,it means they are/were part of some sort of common upbringing,environment,society,education,culture,influences etc etc. and then there has to be some impact of these on humankind. 

And we are sometimes pointing fingers at others and sometimes fingers are pointed at us,and this is my mortal limit of understanding in this regard.

And I feel it's okay,and many a times such experiences gives us as opportunity to be both rationale and irrational;introspection and accusations;feel and make-feel,see and show...laugh at or being laughed about...learn or make others learn a lesson...talk about someone or be someone talked about...its a game where you are the player as well as spectator!

Felt bad!

Last month when I fell down from the stairs,I took full one week off from office as such was the situation for me,though thankfully I had no fracture !In fact many of of my well wishers  advised me to not go to office for couple of more days,but then I thought I was okay and so…However today its not about me… with what I started!

Today it is about the poor and old John,the parking lot in-charge,where  park my car.He is old but is very active and had been very helpful to me all these days,and though my knowledge of Tamil is equal to his knowledge of English,we manage to convey what we intend.

I did not see him in morning today and was quite late while returning,thanks to new acquired professional responsibilities.When I reached the parking lot,I saw his right hand with cast and was sitting quite,which was not like daily.As I told earlier,he will be very active,moving from one corner to other,helping people to take out their vehicles.

I went and asked him,what happened,he told me,how he fell down from stairs yesterday night,and while he was saying,I noticed,how he sighed with pain!

I felt really bad and there was a heavy feeling all the way back to my place,as I kept thinking of my status being so privileged,when compared to old John…who had to come for work even when he has a fractured hand and pain was so much visible.

I know,there are more worse situations than these around,however this was for the first time I could feel the pinch and the gaps between two human beings.

The concern and empathy I felt is not leaving me somehow…!


In this fast-paced contemporary world, we have become strictly controlled in both the capacity and quality of contact with our societal set-up. The role of mobile telecommunications in the 21st century might be manifold; however the mobile phone’s role of being the facilitator of gossip and thus restoring our sense of connection and providing a remedy to the pressures and alienation of modern life is something I can vouch about.

Yes, mobiles are a ‘social lifeline’ in this bitty and separating world!

And yeah,you heard it right,I said ‘gossip’…now lets not judge the word ‘gossip’ with any pre-conceived notion of it being what we all claim,’ we don’t do’ ;).

This is a proven fact that two-thirds of all human conversation is gossip :), because this ‘vocal grooming’ is essential to our social, psychological and physical well-being 😛  🙂

Mobiles facilitate tête-à-tête…mobiles have increased and enhanced this vital lively activity, by allowing us to hear and say ‘anytime, anyplace, anywhere’ and to text as well as talk :P. Mobile chitchat is a helpful and important new stress-buster :)…

When I think about my own experience, I feel life’s taken a 210 degree round in the domain of phones, starting from the first land line phone at home to smart phone in my hands at present. I have left remaining 150 degrees, because it’s still turning day by day aligning itself with this mobile technology  🙂

The technology associated with mobile phones grew like anything. From the era of black and white screens of bulky hand sets with antenna to sleek and light handsets with color screens.

Latest mobile phones are loaded with music, camera, accessibility of WAP services,GPS and full internet access using technologies such as GPRS,ability to send and receive pictures and videos through MMS and bluetooth.Sound recording and video recording is so easy with mobile phone with these features. Most people do not walk around with a video camera, but do carry a phone. The arrival of video camera phones is transforming the availability of video to consumers, and helps fuel citizen journalism.

Till today, I have clear memories of my happiness and excitement on being given my first mobile phone by my parents, when I was in second semester of my engineering. It was a prized procession, securely kept in a girly mobile pouch:).That was a time when incoming calls had become free in India, and keeping a mobile phone looked like affordable for the Indian middle class.

In those days,there was no funda of local and std sms(s) and I still remember that we had sms(s) free from 9 pm in night till early morning at 6, which was fully utilized ;).Whilst I say this, I am amazed at the power and importance of sms(s) offers during college, as in though I have some 250+ sms(s) free,every month, I hardly utilize them as much as in those days,as in which implies I have matured a little :P,nevertheless there is no doubt in youngsters utilizing power of sms(s) like anything ;)…

The best thing about mobile conversation which is often enhanced by the use of the text message as a sort of ‘trailer’, alerting friends to the fact that one is in possession of an interesting item of gossip, but without revealing the details, which are saved for a phone call or meeting.

“You can set someone up with a text message – create the anticipation of what you’re going to say, before you meet up with them. “In our text messages we write the word GOSSIP then dot dot dot so that you know you’re about to receive a bit of juicy gossip.” It’s like a sort of sneak preview thing, you know? I’ll just say enough in the text to get her interested, so when I phone he/she’s like “Oooh, what is it? Tell me! Tell me!”

Then another college funda of using mobile phone in college was ‘missed calls’. I think we made more ‘missed calls’ than the actual calls: P. Infact‘missed calls’ were used by many as substitute for actual real conversation/message. Through some really creative acquaintances ;), I got to know that they have proper set of words for the type of missed call they make:).

Then came a time of ‘unlimited calls’ offer and for we students especially the love birds or the aspiring love birds, this was no way less than a boon. There were many night outs on mobile phones having chatty talk about the details of personal matters and relationships, the sharing of secrets – more or less what we currently mean by gossip (with my beau).I was one of the subscriber to this offer, amongst so many in my college in particular.

Why do we talk so much on phone…and what trusted sources of information convey is, because it helps us to establish, develop and maintain relationships; to bond with other members of our social circle; to clarify our social position and status; to manage reputations; to learn social skills; to learn and reinforce shared values; to resolve conflicts; to build support networks; to win friends and influence people. We may also gossip because we are genetically programmed to do so. According to the psychologist Robin Dunbar (to whom I owe most of the above findings on gossip :)), chitchat is part of our evolutionary hard-wiring – perhaps even the single most important part. Language, he argues, evolved to allow us to tittle-tattle.

What I like the most is a particular tone of voice – high and quick, or sometimes a stage whisper, but always highly animated – which is important in generating a sense of excitement 🙂

“Gossip’s got to start with something like “Oooh – Guess what? Guess what?” or “Hey, listen, listen – you know what I heard?””

“You have to make it sound surprising or scandalous, even when it isn’t really. You’ll go “well, don’t tell anyone, but.” even when it’s not really that big of a secret.”

Many people I know bought their mobiles “just for emergencies”, but increasingly found themselves using the mobile for chatting and gossiping with friends and family, and now believe that the mobile provides a quite different kind of ‘social lifeline’. Some very common thing I heard:

“It was a safety thing to begin with, but now it keeps me in touch with the outside world.”

“It’s my only means of communication – I’d feel completely lost and lonely without it.”

“What you get out of it [mobile gossip] is a sense of being included, being trusted – a sense of belonging to a group”

“And also a sense that people care about you as well”

“Having your phone stolen turns your whole world upside down – without my phone, I feel left out of my social group”

For me, when it’s all getting me down, I’ll go to a quiet corner or even to the loo and call my boyfriend on my mobile – that’s the really good thing about mobiles is that it’s private… I can call from my mobile to my parents,cousins,friends and relatives and we’ll chat about family, food,bollywood and relationships… Even if I’m sitting at my desk it feels like I’m at home, that sort of warm feeling – it’s like I can escape from work into a different world for a bit, you know? A more familiar world! :).

Mobiles allow me to keep up with the small details of what’s going on in people’s lives, and that’s what makes me feel close to them. It allows me to maintain that relationship or friendship. It’s a connection – a feeling of bonding. It’s comforting. If I am bored on a train or fed up in traffic,I phone someone for a chat and feel better. Everyone’s so busy these days that it’s the only way of keeping in touch. I gossip more on the mobile with friends I don’t see often – I can report things to them as I hear them.

Those non stop calls from friends and loved ones on birthday and festivals…that early morning wake up call…that on time call on Valentine’s day….that fight too :P,when a date was forgotten…those pranks…those surprises…all the love,all the tantrums and all the arguments 😉 ….none of them will leave my memories ever 🙂

There are so many things,incidents,memories associated with mobile phones;I can go on and on and on…Even if we have no topic to talk about ,we can anytime talk about the latest mobile phones,latest talk plans,latest features on mobile phones ,sharing of songs between mobile phones and the best time pass or rather utilization 😉 would be photo sessions with our mobile cameras… :)No doubt that mobile phones are show stoppers on the ramp of activities with friends and families… 🙂

Conversations is, and always has been, good for us – essential to our social, psychological and even physical well-being. The mobile phone  is helping us to manage, acclimatize and endure. This is perhaps the most remarkable and significant impact: that a technological advance is helping to counter the unfavorable effects of previous technological advances. Mobile phones are re-creating the more normal, benevolent communication patterns of pre-industrial era: we are using space-age know-how to return to stone-age gossip!

Somehow,one thing I feel is…that due to the presence of the mobile phones with us,we do not talk to strangers when traveling anymore. In the past, several people waiting for a bus would engage in a conversation while they were waiting. People who traveled the same routes every day might develop friendships along the way. This situation does not happen anymore. Today when people are waiting for a bus, they just pull out their cell phones and speak with old friends, missing out on the opportunity to make new ones. In large cities, many people do not know their neighbors, even though they may have lived in the same neighborhood for years. As a society, we are beginning to lose the face-to-face contact that was such an important part of our lives in the past.

Cell phones are a great asset in aiding in our every day lives. We should remember, however, to hang up every once in a while and pay attention to the world around us!:)

Good-Bye!Sunshine

Heaven called upon you,

leaving all of us with
so many words left for you.
now it’s too late,
words unspoken,feelings unexpressed.
I am sure everybody has some.
Regrets and wishes
are probably there too,
but lasting forever
are memories of you.
I was there when you
came in between us.
There have been many times,
when I could not imbibe
that you are so mature;
that you know so much more;
And now that,
that you are no more…
Your words,
Your images,
Your memories will
always remain vivid.
And wishes come
deep from heart that you get all the happiness
that God forgot to give you this time!

Good-Bye!Sunshine


In  loving memory of my cousin-bro Aman,who died on August 31 st, 2010 at the age of 17;he was suffering from cerebral palsy.

Recalled Refreshed Cherished…

I do miss my good old childhood days and somehow or other associating all phases of life with television serials and program comes by default to me…I still have clear images of our first television set….a Salora black and white TV with shutters and channel knob…and big antennas with boosters with them to get clear signals…there was no option of channels till DD2 came and there were days of color televisions with varying degree of bulkiness to sleek LCD televisions…When I started recalling all those TV programs and serials of which I was a viewer with different levels of interests …so many sweet,innocent,cute memories were floating around me like white clouds around a fairy…I was lost…literally lost…and then I started jotting down the names of all the TV broadcasts which I could recall…I am sure whomsoever starts reading this list will be lost in some or other memories and for sure feel good :)…..So here we go…. 🙂

just two more hours :P

In continuation with my very sweet sleep rhapsody…I just want to share about what cruelty I had been imposing on my sleep because of my driving classes 😉 all these days err mornings.

As I can only take driving lessons in the morning and I really want to learn driving ASAP…every night(since past 4-5 weeks)I am very determined to get up on time and go downstairs and wait for my car driving trainer.And in fact I had been managing it somehow…

However there is a twist in the story :P… The trainer does not know anything but Tamil and few English words,but then he will never use them anyways,and when while waiting for him in morning in the first week,when I would call him,he would say something in Tamil( in super fast speed) and because I would not understand what he said,I would be left with no clue whether he’s coming in 5 minutes,10 minutes or whether he will be not coming at all…I somehow managed to guide trainer to speak with me in broken sentences in English…if he’s coming in 5 minutes…just telling me…”5 minutes wait”…if he’s not coming….he should say…”not coming”.However this little training to my trainer…was a savior 🙂

But then again a twist…as it’s so well-known that I just love sleeping and it is just so nice to sleep in morning;every night when I go to sleep,I am very determined to get up timely in morning for my car driving sessions,but  when I hear my mobile alarm,at first instance I want to keep it in snooze and in second instance I want to call the trainer and wish to hear…”Amma…I am not coming”…and me going to sleep again… 😛

Today also I got up on alarm, saw time and then decided that instead of trying to fulfill my wish to hear from the trainer to say that he’s not coming,I told him….”Anna I am not…” 😛 :D…and slept for another two hours…. 😀 🙂

What if…

What if…yes…there can be million “what if(s)?”,but when today I was enjoying a hot cup of ginger tea in evening,all of a sudden I thought,what if tea didn’t exist?I feel if  tea was not there,my mornings,whatever time it be 😉 would not have started…breakfasts would not have tasted that good without a cup of tea along with it…the chit chats in college canteen would have never been so spicy without a spicy tea…office gossips in company cafeteria would not have  been so interesting without a tea cup…a power nap would have never been that powerful without a tea after it…travelling in trains would not have remained so memorable without a cuppa tea… late night studies would have remained so impacting without a cup of strong tea…feel of rain would not have remained the same without a cup of tea… for me the list is endless and I can keep writing and writing about what not entities existence is incomplete without tea…Tea gives me warmth in cold,keeps me cool in heat,gives me energy when I am weak…Yes tea gives me enough reasons to write something in ode to its humble existence!

There is a verb “live” and a noun “life”, either of which when used alone makes no impact as much as their usage together; that is “Live Life” This is a small but a strong and complete statement in its own!

When we hear “Live Life”, we all visualize the fun we can have in our lives and another tick in our wish list(s).Yeah!, it is absolutely natural and normal, however don’t you think that living life should honestly be identified with some extraordinary event in an ordinary life?

There are just 5 letters appended before “ordinary” to make it “extraordinary”, nonetheless this “extra” something (read many things) makes ordinary, extraordinary. An extra mile, an extra attempt and an extra consideration makes ordinary extraordinary!

Life often throws up troubles. Coping well is a route of preference and obvious thoughts that determines our worth of life. Standpoint and deed are keys to coping.

Everyone faces difficulties in their lives. Doing something about issues that affect us, in spite of how we feel, is empowering.

Herein I want to quote Bob Dylan Trouble lyrics: Trouble in the city,

“Trouble in the city, trouble out in the farm/you got your rabbit’s foot/you got your good-luck charm. But they can’t help you none, when there’s trouble.”

Yes, both the problem and the solution lies with us!I know some ordinary people and their extraordinary way of “living life” makes me say this and is too ‘awe inspiring’ to keep it within myself.

“No one lives on the top of the mountain. It’s fine to go there occasionally —for inspiration, for new perspectives. But you have to come down. Life is lived in the valleys. That’s where the farms and gardens and orchards are, and where the plowing and the work is done. That’s where you apply the visions you may have glimpsed from the peaks”,said Arthur Gordon. And I completely second this myself,as I relate to myself being the witness of a life around me which I genuinely consider,”Living Life”

One of such person is my maternal uncle,whose way of “living life” is something which has influenced me like any thing. He was barely in his late teens when his father (and my maternal grandfather) expired. He was then the head of the family with responsibility and liabilities of four younger siblings. With no support from anybody around, he believed in himself and gradually grew both financially and spiritually. All the responsibilities of being the eldest were taken care of and life looked like following an ideal trail in due course. He was married to a beautiful lady and he was blessed with a lovely daughter and an adorable son; nothing could have been as sweet as this!

However God has His ways of making his presence felt. Both children were diagnosed with a form of cerebral palsy, wherein they were least likely to be able to walk and take care of themselves at any point of time in their life.The only bright thing was the kids having really sound mental abilities, in fact more than kids of their age;

( though it is not justified to compare them in present times (they being in their teens) with others because of the difference in level of exposure and education of normal kids and them.).But I still identify both the kids as really smart ones,inheriting many qualities of their father

Let me tell you,it might look easy from outside the window,but I know this personally how difficult it is to take care of such special children.And the difference is they are not just taken care of by fulfilling the basic requirements for their survival but also being given an opportunity to learn,study and grow as much as possible.If he would have just made efforts to survive,it would have been still be viewed as a big effort but according to him, that situation of minimum survival is like “given up” and would have been permanent;but his attitude is to keep recovering from the his injuries and start afresh,and when this the way of living this is in real sence “Live Life” realized.Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the way it is. The way we deal with it is what makes the difference.

Life looks too long in such situations and ordinary people succumb to such atrocities from God!But this man,showed everyone around how an ordinary person like him can be too tough to perish!He not only accepted that difficult situation,he lived live with beauty;made all efforts to provide education to his children,make them learn computers,fulfilling their wishes,and on top of this,made sure that he also fulfils his other worldly duties expected in normal circumtances.In fact a perfect example of an ideal son,brother,husband father and friend.

Till date he goes out of way to make sure that he does everything which he should do and he does this with elan!I have witness all this and I believe this is called “Living Life” and I believe I can never pen down my imbibed feelings I have for this “extraordinary life” which has touched my life in many ways!

And his life is a real example of a quote from Claude Pepper, “Life is like riding a bicycle. You don’t fall off unless you plan to stop peddling”
