My daughter's friends were in a fight last evening while she was scootering. One of them scolded the other. One abused the other to be an idiot. The other angrily questioned what an idiot meant. My daughter updated this happening at night as we were spending time with each other. I was curious to know what the other answered. However, my daughter was away from them to listen to that part.


She continued, “Idiot is I DIshq Only Tumse. That is what you used during school days. Isn’t it?” I laughed. I was surprised by what she remembered. I never use ‘idiot’ when I speak.  Scolding from me is, at the most, a raise in my pitch. I don’t remember having even used monkeys or donkeys for my kids. There is hardly any verbal abusive usage at my house too. With the advent of media today, abuse has undergone a makeover. Hahaha! As kids, at the max, we turned out to be some animals. We get to hear some typical Kannada slang while we are on the passenger seats of a family outing. Lest I sometimes wonder how would kids cope with the harsh outer world. And then I brush it aside by self consoling that life goes on. 


I could not recollect as to when I had mentioned the funny school acronym to my daughter. We had a good laugh, while I realized I use the word for self scolding or when I lovingly think of the mischiefs of my kids. With kids, we indeed relive a lot of moments.

The kitchen I fell in love with!

It was a cloudy morning, as I watched the sky through the balcony window after getting up. I hoped Mr. Sun to be a little kind to spread his shine that day and rushed to finish my morning miscellaneous work. By 6:15 am, I checked my mobile to find a missed call. I did not bother to call back since I was already on my way to the lady’s house who had called up. I reached her house by 6:30. am. She was busy finishing up her morning stuffs and took another 5 mins and then got into the passenger seat of my car.  “I called you up, and then I called your land line. Your mother informed that you have already started.” she said. “I thought I will talk to you in person since I already had started, hence did not bother to call back.” I replied. “I was wondering if you would make it or not. I almost had dropped the idea of participating, later when your mother said that you have started, I hurried up.” She said. “hmm.....frankly I went to bed late. My daughter was in a playful

TajMahal or RamaSetu ?

As I grabbed a glass of water  in one hand this morning, the other logged into WhatsApp to quickly catchup on updates from groups. One thing that caught my attention was a forward from my Engineering class group. One of them had forwarded the below pic: I had an ear-to-ear smile. I pondered for a few minutes and gave a quick response -  "If you ask me, one wanted to show off his love and other wanted to protect his love. However there was lack of respect and trust respectively which is base of love. So if you ask me, either both qualify or both dont. 😊 or we might have to ask Mumtaz or Sita. 😂😂😂 I at times fantasize and wonder what would 'Ramayana' look like if it were written by a female. 😁" Even after the reply the subject had been running in the background. As they say, to get over it, one needs to get through it. So here I am jotting down the thoughts that waved up my mind.  Though majority of people in and around me very clearly had and have been taking reli

Stitch in time saves nine :)

( Any thing and any person seeks a compassionate heart. The restless brain influenced by the materialistic greed either refrains from taking righteous action or indulges into sinful crime; convincing oneself that everything is in it's hands. It needs a situation like quarantine for hearts to takeover brain and be compassionate. What a short lived soaring compassion! ) Stitch in time saves nine They say a stitch in time saves nine But why would you save nine when it is completely fine? Oh no, then goes the realization - it’s quarantine! The thread running like a non-stop train, Helps restless brain to refrain; Or may be it’s just to convince that   I can make things fine, And console the crooked wise brain. Stop it! It’s a crime, Says heart, the prime. But the heart’s words go unheard without proper claim. Repeated gestures like that are for sure to chime! Its then that neither stitch nor time is going to stop the prime, And it sews its way to sublim
