Zabardast weekend

Had about 10 of Navy's colleagues for dinner on Saturday and not a single woman in the group!! And almost all of them were single. I had been apprehensive that Anush should not get in their way and kept telling her to stay with me or in her room.

But she turned out to be the light of the party and all the guests indulged her ( taking turns if they needed to do some serious talk) Piggy back, stitching, jigsaws, dance moves , dumb charades, naming the masks, naming the uncles . . . . .

I was really amused to see some of them wanting to be addressed Anna and not uncle - all over 25 yrs, then why the complex???

We were gifted a pair of round base papier-mache dolls from Thanjavur and a lovely rug from Fab India among other things.

***********

Some Anushims:
To her toy laptop which keeps asking her to key in the number, when she is slow-
" Don't keep saying the same thing again and again!! Wait okay"
Or if she does not follow what the voice in the laptop asks-
" Eh ?" or " Aanhh?"


Navy " Hang on, I will come"
Anush" I am hanging Appa. Please come."

***********

Could not go to the Mylapore festival nor could I make it to the Mahabs dance festival. Anush has again got a severe bout of cold- cough " I am in bad shape amma. So I cannot go to school." We wondered if she brought on the fever as well to avoid school. But poor baby!

Would like to make it to this- The Tree of Life festival. And here is this year's agenda.
