My little foodie!

                        "Mmmm! What are you eating, mom? It smells just yumm! Is that my favourite rice and dal? Wow! It is, isn't it? I want some...I want some..please, give me some from your plate, mom! Pretty please!"

               "Hey, mom, what ARE you chopping? it a carrot? Oh, yay! I want some carrot! Yes, give me some carrot, mom! Please, please, please!"

                "What IS that heavenly aroma? CHICKEN!?! OMG! Have you guys made chicken for dinner? For me, right? Oh! What are you waiting for? Give me a piece..a big one. BIG one, mom! Give me..give me..GIVE ME!"

                "Hey, mom, Something awesome came wafting from the kitchen! What is it? Let me see, let me see! Is it an omelette? Is it egg? Yippee! I want it, too, mom! Where's my bowl? Please, give me some, mom, please! You NEVER give me ANYTHING! Mom, dad, please, I want it...RIGHT NOW!"

          These are some of the demands my son makes whenever he smells food, his favourite food, being cooked/chopped in the kitchen. A magnetic force pulls him towards the kitchen platform, and  every scent that he can take in makes his nostrils quiver with  delightful anticipation!  A minute late in giving him his food, and  he lets me know how inconsiderate I am, never indulging him, ever! His barks say so, loud and clear.
        It is amusing, seeing him come hopping into the kitchen, asking to be fed anything that is being cooked. It warms my heart to see the way he makes those demands, barking at a high volume. He utters not one word in the human language. But, his canine language is enough to get his point across!
         This one's for you, my child. Keep those barks coming...they are music to my ears! 

"Give me, give me, give me whatever it is!" 


  1. Hahahahahaha - I think you have expressed exactly what goes on in his mind my friend:-) They so happy and excited right?! Yes, especially when it comes to the culinary department:-) Have fun with your boy - and keep cooking:-) Big hugs

  2. So adorable! I can see someone has you wrapped around his paw. So funny how he hangs out in the kitchen when you cook hoping for a morsel or two. The cats often come when I'm making sandwiches hoping for some sandwich meat. Lately I haven't been making them so they're outta luck. I still give them "treats" though. They get very excited at that word and come running for their canned food which they like better than the daily dried stuff.

On love and attachments.

Learning to live without the person whom we loved more than our life is one of the toughest things we humans experience during our life.
Almost every moment of our day we spend in their shadows, enveloped in their love; we don't even realise when they became an extension of our selves. We come to accept them along with their flaws, their peculiarities, which often have the potential to drain us of our patience. Yet, we love them, unconditionally, at times wondering how we survived before they entered our world. Often, we also wonder how we will ever survive after they leave our world.

The human mind is such.  Its ability to give birth to a thought and then mull over it however unpleasant it may be, is quite baffling! We realise we stand to lose our sanity if we don't get rid of that negative thought; we understand how important it is to live in the moment and enjoy it with the loved ones we fear losing someday, yet we keep worrying ourselves to death about what would happen t…

You are The Man!

I admit, I am late in discussing this event, but did you watch the controversial 'Koffee with Karan' episode, two weeks ago? The one where the ubertalented Kangana Ranaut and Saif Ali Khan were Karan Johar's guests on his famous couch, sipping coffee along with him? Did you notice Kangana's confidence and her sassiness?   Do you remember her repartees, her jibes, her ripostes that were well-aimed at Mr. Johar? How fearlessly she spoke her mind without mincing words! And, she was in conversation with one of the Big Daddies of Bollywood.

I confess, I am an admirer of Ms. Ranaut, and I was blown away by her candour. The fact that she gave two hoots about diplomacy, and about the men in power in the hindi film industry,  shows how self-assured she is. She wasn't born into the industry, with a silver spoon; she entered the industry as an "outsider", who, despite being written off by the industry bigwigs, worked her way up the very competitive ladder, right to…

How I wish I could turn back the clock!

"Youth comes but once in a life time!"

             Traversing through  life, how often do we look back wistfully at our past and wish we could go back, wish we could live it all over again, just one more time?   Each time we witness the young around us enjoying life, enjoying their freedom and pursuing dreams with an enviable vigour, how we wish we could swap places! Sigh.

             A few days ago, I happened to have a chat with a 23 year old cousin. Excited about her future and the plans she had chalked out for herself, she had quite a lot to share with me. The sparkle in her eyes and the enthusiasm in her voice spoke a lot about how eager she was to embark upon the path she had chosen! Her enthusiasm was, indeed, contagious, for it left me yearning to turn the clock back and re-enter that age I left behind almost 2 decades ago.

          Were I to find Aladdin's lamp, I would ask the Genie to transport me back to the past I so wish…
