It’s all about her

This one is for Seema, who is missing my amma (hmmpff).


I don’t know who taught her this sudden good habit these days my amma ends her call with a THANK YOU!

Amma:Hello (from chennai)

Me: Hi Amma

Amma:Had lunch kanna?

Me: Yessu

Amma:What did you make?

Me: Jeera rasam

Amma: Don’t make the easy ones always.When will you learn to make sambhar, koottu and all. And please prepare some veggies too.

Me: ooookk ma

Amma: Don’t be lazy. Tomorrow when you get married you will have more responsibilities, you have to cook , work. You need strength.

Me: oooooooook ma

Amma: Did you add salt correctly?

Me: Yes ma πŸ˜€ Perfect

Amma: ok. How many times you added salt?

Me: err.. I wanted to be careful so added little first ,tasted it and added more..Like that mmm 7 times ma πŸ˜€ ehehehehe

Amma: Ayyooo.. Learn it. You should measure with your eyes and add it in one go. Only then tomorrow when you make it for 4, 8, 12 people you will be able to judge how much salt you need to add and all.

Me: ooooooook. But I am just being cautious.

Everyday after reaching officeΒ  I have to give her a missed call. And if she is out of town I have to give a missed call after reaching home too. She calculates time and waits patiently for extra ten minutes. Then panic only.

That day I reached office, saw aloo parata in canteen and forgot to give missed call ok. She was not in town.After sometime I get a missed call from her.Then only it strikes me and I give her a missed call again indicating I reached safe πŸ˜‰ . But looks like she is not happy. I get another missed call from her. I call.

Me: Hello ma.. what happened why orey missed calling?

Amma: Why didn’t you give me a missed call after reaching office?

Me: Sorry ma. I forgot.

Amma: ok ok I got scared. That is why I gave you the first missed call.

Me: ok ok. Ya then I gave you one missed call no. Why did you give me another missed call?

Amma: The missed call you gave was for my missed call only na. “I reached safe” missed call you never gave.

Me: πŸ˜• πŸ˜•

Amma: ok ok. Take care. Thank You . Bye.


Sometimes she calls , says whatever she wanted to say and ‘tok’Β  hangs. Never waits for a response.

Amma: Hello

Me: He..

Amma: Don’t buy curd from outside. prepare it at home. Drink milk. take care. Thank you . bye,

Me: o..

Amma: “tok” beep beep beep

Me: !!


She expects me to give a missed call as soon as I reach the destination,but when I expect the same she gives awesome excuses. As soon as she sees her sister she forgets everything.

Me: Hello Amma (shouting on phone)

Amma: (hahahaha in the background) Yesss

Me: You reached?

Amma: haaha…long back, train reached early you know!

Me: Oho. Where is the missed call madam?

Amma: oh.. I gave you a missed call. You didn’t get it.

Me: !!!!

Amma: You had good lunch today?What time will you reach home?

Me: Will reach in 15 mins

Amma: oh ok. Are you hungry?

Amma: Are you very hungry? You sound hungry.

Me: mm.. yes a little

Amma: You must be very hungry kanna. Buy two samosas and kachoris from our fav shop ok. We will have a late dinner πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Me: πŸ˜€ ok ma

Have a good weekend !! πŸ™‚








The Mustafa! Mustafa! Weekend

Two of my college friends were here last weekend. We were totally 5 in number and since we were meeting after a long time, we decided to stay at one of the friends’ place and have fun. We all reached her home on saturday evening. You all know what happens when 5 people meet after a long time!! Gossip Gossip eat laugh eat gossip laugh gossip laugh eat laugh- That is all we did. Till 4 in the morning we were watching some funny clippings on youtube and laughing like crazy.

Have you noticed that when you are alone and watching some funny scene on TV, you will just laugh for 1 or 2 mins max.But if you have company the laughter never ends and it will be loud!! The same happened, we watched the same video 3..4.5 times and every time we laughed like crazy!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ My ears started paining. yes! My ears wonly!

Then at 4 AM we decided to sleep.There was one bed and all 5 slept in that.Nobody fell down, nobody pushed or kicked. We realized that we have all become matured πŸ˜› Next day when I got up for a moment I was thinking of waking everyone up and going to mess for breakfast! It was the flashback time! The beautiful hostel life!! πŸ™‚ Ah! I miss those days!

We all got up – gossiped and giggled for sometime in the bed and then started planning for breakfast.All of us entered the kitchen, slowly made breakfast – toast and scrambled egg + coffee – took pics ! and then ate. Not a single minute was spent in silence.Talk Talk Talk only throughout!Slowly after finishing the breakfast we realized that it was friendship day πŸ˜€ We decided to go out for shopping and the place was fixed. We decided not to take bath just washed our face and started.

By the time we reached our destination it was 4 PM and no hotel had lunch. The kitchen was closed.So we just had some sandwich and burger and started shopping. It was 6 and two of friends had to leave. We hugged kissed waved bye and they left. One of my friends said that she will drop us near our house. We all started on a positive note. After crossing so many “take diversion”, we realized that instead of going into the city we were going out of the state!!

We were tensed little bit, as it was highway and we could not ask anyone for help. We parked the car and did some meditation for 5-10 mins and started back again. With the help of GPS* we came back to the shopping mall again but we were on the wrong side of the mall and we could not find a way to go to the other side. Then we had the brightest idea of “trying to reach the other side of the mall by driving through its parking lot”. In the parking lot we did all crazy stuff and finally ended up parking our car. Don’t know why! πŸ˜›

When we got lost I called up my mom saying that we all got lost,I would be reaching home late. I thought she would get all tensed and all . But she was so cool and said ” Oh you got lost? Stupid girls! Find the correct route and come back home! “. From my “Give me a missed call as soon as you reach the bathroom” mother I did not expect this.Disappointment!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

Finally I reached home and had lots of kozhukattai (modhak) and slept off!! A Perfect friendship day no? πŸ™‚

* You may ask why we did not use the GPS the first time. We thought that our city was square in shape!
