Some days are gloomy.You get angry for silly things.You feel depressed.Problems look bigger.Anything could irritate you.You will be lost in your thoughts, worrying.But a mail/call from your friends will cheer you up.You don’t have to explain your problems but they are there to listen.You don’t have to know about them sometimes not even their names but they are ready to help.No matter which part of the world they are in, they are ready to support you.You read and re-read their emails and feel that you are blessed.
Slowly you start forgetting about your worries, your heart gets filled with fresh hope. All your ‘super hero’ cells wake up with tremendous energy and you go home straight from work and jump into the kitchen and scare your mom.
Me: Oops!! All my energy is getting wasted.
Amma: ok. Indha Apple.
Amma: Do you want rava upma?
Amma:Arisi upma (rice upma)?
Amma: thayir aval (poha with curd) ?
Amma: Vellam pottu aval (sweet poha)?
Me: nooooooooooooo.. I want something interesting!
Amma: hmmm..corn flakes?
Amma: ***getting irritated.. ** chow chow kootu?
Me: ok give me nei chakkarai**!!
**My mother buys butter from shop and makes ghee at home.When we(me+cousins) were kids, whenever amma makes ghee she takes the brown sediment from the ghee vessel and mixes little bit sugar and rice flour. We enjoy and eat it.We call it nei chakkarai.Nei=ghee,chakkarai=sugar.
Amma says as a kid I never troubled her, never asked for anything no tantrums nothing.And all those things which I didn’t do during my childhood, I am doing it now 👿 👿 👿
