Read this post really really fast OK. Like imagine you are watching a movie song where scenes move really fast as if being fast forwarded. Got it right? Like that avvai shanmukhi song in avvai shanmukhi.
I get up in the morning and as soon as I do my kid wakes up, I run behind her begging her to brush her teeth. Finally when she agrees she says ah when I ask her to say eee and vice versa. Finally we somehow manage to clean those sixteen teeth. Then run around the house for breakfast. In between I take breaks for loo, bath, dressing up and breaking the fast. Then comes the uniform wearing ceremony. Run behind her with t-shirt, then skirt, one sock, then another sock, combing her hair oh God. Combing. She turns her head like a pottery wheel. Somehow we end up at her school gate on time. Then comes the traffic.
I am in a hurry. The person behind me is in a hurry. The auto guy is in a hurry. The car who refuses to allow me to cross the road is in a hurry. The bike wala who tries to draw all the diagrams he did using his compass in his tenth standard with his bike now is in a hurry. We a push each other and enter the office campus finally.
And inside the campus I see a guy not in his best attire, riding his almost broken bicycle but singing his favorite song aloud, not caring one bit about the people who are either staring at him or in their hurry not even noticing him… He is in his own world which seems to be taking things slow, poised, which seems to be in no hurry, in which things fall in place on its own..
I stop and think which song was stuck in my head since morning… And it was ‘cement kaadu’ from aruvi. Sigh!
