My Appa Bestest

There are men and there is The Man in every little girl's life- here is to the man with the biggest hands, who makes me feel so secure - my Appa.

He must be the youngest 56 yr old on earth. Happy Birthday Appa( on Monday). I wish I had

His way with words- My recent readers may recollect this and some of my older friends will know this. More recently, Anush has been christened Blue Diamond by him -after the Chennai theatre, given the continuous performance that she is up to.

He is the official tool man- An out of the box, usually do- it - yourself solution for all things electrical, electronic or emotional- No wonder even Anush says " Not working? Thaathu will fix it okay?" to all of us

His gusto- Be it his booming laughter, his baysur singing- which he calls unique ( for one single listener - who else but Anush) his vigorous walks ( he has covered most of Velachery Adyar and Tiruvanmiyur I guess), his pig headed determination to not eat like one and cutting down to a frugal 2 meals a day, the way he relates to Anush like she is a little adult, his keeping in touch with his subject ( diabetes), his devouring books, his organisation skills ....All age groups relate so easily to him since he is versatile!!

Appa- I am really glad you are here in Chennai now and I hope Chennai does its bit for you. Remember, we love you despite the diasgreements we have and here is to all the Good Times and more to come!
