Of food & all other things that excited me the last couple of days
The festivities continue- at least in terms of eating- much against my wishes. Given the visit to Mumbai, I had to take a break from the gym. Attended a wedding last evening and unusually the food turned out great. In particular the masala vadai and the paal payasam. Today we had Pizza and cake at office- Boss's bday- how could I refuse?
Till recently handles & tyres were on bikes and suddenly they are my body parts.
There is this uncle in my building who suffers from verbal diahorrea. He does not know when to stop. He just got his son married. We appreciated the bride on her looks. He says" We gave her that sari, it is five thousand rupees you know. A designer sari from XYZ on GN Chetty road." Aunty says, " Yes pretty but she is a little dark, no?." I wanted to say " Not as though you or your son are too fair " Then she says " I am going to be a modern mother in law. I want to buy her jeans and t shirt and make her wear what I did not."
Modern or old fashioned, here is one sweet sour relationship in the making.
The time capsule ( courtesy yahoo and usha) triggered a recollection. Goddess Charani Devi. Time was wreaking havoc and had to be controlled. This goddess swallowed Time( past future an dteh present) but then things would stay in limbo. Letting only the Present out and keeping vigil over Time, was what the Devas requested this Devi to do. A long and lonely pursuit- but not without love.
Shiva held her, symbolic of a timeless union.
Anush points at her belly button when asked and says "dhudhu" instead of "dhondee"
I got to use the little mojris with colourful sequins for her
She allowed herself to be carried by relatively less familiar people and was friendly
Growing up baby
Today is the final of Jhalak Dhiklaa jaa- I know Shweta is the better dancer but I am rooting for Mona- she is just so sweet. I used to root for Hemchandra and Himani on the Sa Re Ga Ma challenge but some idiot won instead. At least here, I am ok with the final two.
Am sure Shweta should/ will win.
Navy told me I looked lovely in my pink chiffon sari and the new hair cut. Without my asking how I looked.
