More on the Weekend Trivandrum Trip

1) RD got no not like lost -lost….lost as in we lost our way from the hotel to the mandapam!…yes yes yes yes yes…I am joyful…yaa yaa he married a sadist…imagine what I havent witnessed in SIX make it 6.5 years, I witnessed in Trivandrum…I was so happy that we got lost!!! Total Blogworthy moment!!!

2) The road to the hotel is kinda busy..well at least for Trivandrum standards…so RD, R and I are trying to cross it..we cross half the road and turn the other side to see a bus approaching…I am not carrying R, she is heart is in my mouth..the bus driver actually STOPPED…I mean actually stopped for us to cross and gave us a wave…I was shocked at his niceness..R gave him a beautiful smile back..:)

3) R has decided that she is settling down in Coimbatore with my SIL’s in laws..apparantly her Coimbatore thatha and thathi are nice and give her what she wants and she doesnt want to attend school any more

4) We were eating kara vadai when the ‘thali’ cermony was on..yes we are cool cousins that ways…I didnt want to see the emotional moment…I get too filmy and all we decided to eat the famed karavadai of Trivandrum

5) The driver of the car which chittappa hired was kinda weird…he got angry at RD because RD asked him to drop us back to the hotel for the second time in 2 hours..he tells RD’ how many times do you want to go’ RD didnt say anything and said can you please take us!!!

6) Pothys is definitely NOT the place to shop for anything…Shail had given me a list of shops to go shopping, but unfortunately most of them were closed on Sunday..someone suggested Pothys and I will never go there again..its SO DAMN CONFUSING!!!! I mean bloody 6 stores of clothes…and IT WAS FULL…where is the recession in India man?

7) The Bong connection continues…we found a shop where we got sweets for R to eat and the guys serving there turned out to be Bongs from Howrah…RD spoke in chaste Bong and the guys were so happy ๐Ÿ™‚

8) The next time I travel by Jet Airlines, I am going to order the child meal..its so damn muchย  better than the sad food they serve the adults

9) R is getting to be crazier by the day…after the annual day (Seema, post coming up later in the week) she is singing songs like ‘Nursery C ka song che ‘ angrezi mein bolu chu ke ‘I love you’, Gujarati ma bolu chu ke’ prem karu chu’ and then Nursery E ka song hai ‘Saar pe topi laal aur daal ke laal laal laal oye tera kahena laal’ – All through the wait to the aeroplane to Mumbai she drove me and RD crazy with this song…the laaal wala song…uffff!!!! and oh she also does actions of the topi on her head and all that….infact she was a good entertainment factor to the bored people at the airport!

10) The rick guys are surprising very nice in Trivandrum…we got cheated only once…the guy charged us some Rs.100 from the beach to hotel which while going we paid only Rs.60..but thats okie..otherwise really nice and sweet people ๐Ÿ™‚

11) Leaving with an Rism

RD: R, who all are there in your class
R: eh?
RD: do you have marathis in the class?
R: No, there are marathis, Engleeesh, Hindis…
RD: oh! so what are you, R?

The brat thinks for two seconds

R: main toh Gujarati hoon

*Just to clarify, her class has about 98% Gujju students*

Note a proud mother and a heart broken father around her…

See see..all this training in Gujju is of use heheheheh *Sticks tongue out at RD*

  1. First things first, I hope Seema is not coming behind you with a pistol for not posting about R’s Annual Day yet! ๐Ÿ˜€
    1) Heh.. I mean, poor RD!
    2) I guess you were a good bus driver during your previous birth. You seem to spot them wherever you go! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    3)And I love Coimbatore too. The weather is awesome there. And I think there are schools available in Coimbatore? No? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    4) What? You travelled all the way to Trivandrum and didn’t witness ‘THE’ moment?!
    6) Is there a Pothys in Trivandrum? News to me. And you went to POTHYS? My sympathies are with you!
    8) But.. But.. Will a children’s meal be sufficient for you, RM? **Runs**
    10) You were NOT cheated by the autowalla, okay. (P.S. – I am from proper Madras!)
    And thankfully you posted the bit on Rism in the end. Else, Seema-matha would have killed you! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    • R's Mom says:

      oh she will ๐Ÿ™‚

      #2 yep yep…I may have been one ๐Ÿ™‚

      #3 I have been there twice..the weather is pretty nice na…but I dont think R was enthused about the was more about the pampering grandparents ๐Ÿ™‚

      #4 I told you earlier na I am weird ๐Ÿ™‚

      #6 Oh a BEEEEG One!!

      #8 Gah!

      #10 hahahah I know..chennai guys are a different breed in themselves na ๐Ÿ™‚

      See how scared I am of Seema ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Ashwathy says:

    1) What is there to gloat?? ๐Ÿ™„ You get lost in your own city…you couldn’t find your way from your eyes to your nose!! Atleast RD got lost only in a city he hasn’t been to before….or atleast not there in a long time now! ๐Ÿ˜›

    2) You met one of the nice varieties I guess…. there can be those who yell at having to stop as well…

    3) LOL ๐Ÿ˜€ Smart kid!

    4) karavada?? WTH is that?? ๐Ÿ˜ I suspect you are using the wrong name for it. Vada I know…uzhunnu vada and parippu vada. But what’s this one?

    5) Um….,maybe you should have told him that’s what he was hired for in the first place? ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜ Duh!

    6) Hahaha you walk into ANY well-known clothes shop and the scene is all the same!! ๐Ÿ˜›

    8) Is it?? Gotta try it the next time! ๐Ÿ˜› Oh wait, I have to find a kid to travel along with me na…damn!

    10) You have to be careful around auto-guys… good to know you didn’t cheated often.

    11) WHAT!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ You have already told the kid to start taking sides??? You horrible sadistic manipulative woman!! And u r not even a proper Gujju and you are taking pride in it like twenty generations behind you were Gujju!!! ๐Ÿ˜› Jesus, wait till the day I meet you!! I’m going to beat you black n blue until you won’t be able to say the ‘G’ of Gujju!!! ๐Ÿ˜ก GRRRR!!!!

    • R's Mom says:

      1) Arey thats why na..he NEVER gets lost..anywhere…so I was really happy that he became ‘human’ at least once ๐Ÿ™‚

      2) yaa…this guy was really sweet

      4) Arey I dont know…RD’s family called it Karavadai only!

      5) Eggactly!!

      8) Want to borrow R?

      11) heheheheheh ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Seema says:

    Lottsa love to R. I just loved her songs. (Okay, I agree it can be irritating if hummed in a loop!) I wanna listen to her re…

    Thanks for the clarification on 9. You know I would have asked otherwise na? Hahaha…

  4. ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† at R singing all those lubly songs…way to go R!!! and err tell her Sakshi Didi too loves such mast numbers ๐Ÿ˜‰

    phew you guys have immense energy to do so many things!! Take me out of my home and all I want to do is sit with a book, eat and sleep….and err click nature and butts :mrgreen:

  5. RS says:

    First things first – Just 1 Rism is NOT enough! Im sure with all this travelling and exposure to family there should be more ๐Ÿ™‚

    RD would’ve been happier if she had said she is a Bong na? ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’ve noticed thast I become mushy and teary at weddings during the kanyadaan – only these days – after my own wedding! Until then I would think how much of melodrama these people do! Huh! This is what I think experience is…

    Leave R with the Coimbatore Thatha Thathi na… Err… you will get time for yourself then ๐Ÿ˜› – see im talking *just* like those maamis now ๐Ÿ™‚

    • R's Mom says:

      I have another Rism coming up after the annual day post ๐Ÿ™‚

      Errr…no RD wants her to be a Tambram ๐Ÿ™‚

      Errr…I dont care about the mushiness…it kinda un nerves me when I see elders with tears in their eyes and all that ๐Ÿ™‚

      LOL on the last line

  6. My era says:

    Aww…no wonder R is a sweetheart, that made even the bus driver stop the bus for her ๐Ÿ˜€
    Your posts are like energy boosters at the start of the day ๐Ÿ˜€
    Now am waiting for all the blog-worthy moments to quickly change to full length posts with more details on the sir pe topi lal lal ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜†

  7. Tharani says:

    Ok i want kara vadai.
    RD got lost and you are laughing.. Woman what are you. But wait I would have also laughed if AV got lost. He he he
    R is so cute RM. If you keep writing about her like this, I just will catch the next flight to Mumbai and land in your house just to meet her.

    • R's Mom says:

      see know Karavadai na….its a real thing right?

      Come rey…she would love to have you guys around…you and AV can have a second honeymoon here ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. VJ says:

    And u went shopping even in this crazy 2 day trip?? Good on you RM. I am very proud of you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. summerscript says:

    Heyyy R is not crazy OK..she is adorable
    hehe engleeesh it seems ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. //Saar pe topi laal aur daal ke laal laal laal oye tera kahena laalโ€™//
    I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me–I was seeing too many laals ๐Ÿ˜€
    oye tera kahena laalโ€™
    Hahaha I can’t stop laughing ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. uma says:

    Even I don’t like to shop in crowded places..but FYI I got all my wedding sarees from Pothys, Chennai..really liked the collection..:-)
    R is definitely a gujju..:-)

  12. shail says:

    A hired driver getting angry when he has to drive you someplace?! Why was he hired in the first place? To catch up on his sleep? ๐Ÿ™„
    And going to Shankhumukham cost you less than returning? ๐Ÿ˜†
    You go to any of these high profile shops (esp gold) and you end up with, “What recession?” ๐Ÿ™„
    And oh, I am so glad the bus driver stopped. You must have been thoroughly shaken up.

  13. Sreetama says:

    Hahaha! I didn’t quite get it, how did RD get lost? Did he lose his way from the hotel to the mandap? Lol on Main toh Gujarati hu!!! I can so very well understand the broken heart part! ๐Ÿ˜› You too learn some from RD na! Then me, you & Seema can gossip in ! ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. garima says:

    Is โ€˜thali cermony ‘ similar to ‘vidai’ or a ceremony where guy puts sindoor that really is emotional scene.I dont watch that scene in my own mariage CD ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yeah R took after her mom and is ture gujju…Its Ok RD dont feel bad probably R2 will have bong likings ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • R's Mom says:

      well..its not vidai..its the cermony when the guy ties the mangalsutra to the girl ๐Ÿ™‚

      WHAT!! *Falls at feet* you watched your marriage CD…I think the whole CD of ours was a waste of money..we didnt even watch for 10 minutes ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      Errr…I pretend not to read your last line ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. I am enjoying reading about your Tiruananthapuram trip.(Note, it’s not supposed to be Trivandrum. That was the Englishman’s corruption of the name)

    Random comments:

    Kara vadai? I will join Ashwathy is asking “What is that?”
    You possibly mean kaaradai? (pronounced เค•เคพเคฐเคกเคฏ in Hindi , or เช•เชพเชฐเชกเชฏ in Gujarati)
    Was it white in colour? like a flattened dougnhut? about 2 to 3″ in outer diameter and a half inch diameter central hole?
    In that case you were talking about kaaradai (also callued Nombu, or เชจเซ‹เชฎเซเชฌเซ, เคจเฅ‹เค‚เคฌเฅ)
    Two varieties are made, one is salty and white in colour, and the other is sweetened with addition of jaggery and dark gold in colour.

    R want’s to settle in Coimbatore? I can cure that. Leave here with me and my wife for a day. She will want to settle in Bangalore.

    Bongs in Kerala? There is no place where you don’t find a Bengali and no place where you don’t find a Malayali either. They are kindred souls. Both swear by communism, smoke plenty of cigarettes, love football and fish!

    Add the “Sar pe laal. “, and “angrezi meh kehte hain” songs too to my “Why this Kolaveri Di” farmaish list. Would love to hear R singing them.

    Yes, the Rick wallas don’t go by the meter like they do in Bangalore. They don’t have enough passengers and enough trips to make operating by meter economically worthwhile as in Bangalore. But you generally feel safe with them. They may over charge but I have never heard of them misbehaving.

    “main to Gujarati hoon?”
    No. She can’t be Gujarati if she said that.
    She ought to have said เชนเซ‚เช เชคเซ‹ เช—เซเชœเชฐเชพเชคเซ€ เช›เซ‚เช‚

    There is still hope for RD


    • R's Mom says:

      I know I know…its just easier to type Trivandrum na ๐Ÿ˜‰ *now you know how lazy I can be*

      Arey I know noombu vadai…I make it myself *Gives proud look* this one was like a vadai but without the holes and made of dals…lemme ask RD for the right name ๐Ÿ™‚

      hahahha! R will go with anyone who is ready to pamper her ๐Ÿ™‚ you and aunty may decide never to entertain grandkids after you have her with you ๐Ÿ™‚

      I havent ever recorded R’s songs..may be I should *note to self : Contact RD*

      errr..her language skills are so profound that any linguist will run away to Antartica… ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Ramya says:

    Sometimes our training helps.. all in wrong time for fathers… thanks for r’isms after longtime… was missing them ๐Ÿ˜‰ And be happy u have an entertainer and not a cry girl with u RM and appreciate sweety R for that ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Bikram says:

    Yupp and you made sure you put it as POINT ONE tooo… all focus on that ๐Ÿ™‚ I am sure he was just testing if you remmebered the way or not … MUUU HA HAH HAA HA ๐Ÿ™‚

    and what an answer by R had me in splits hindis engleesh he he he hee ๐Ÿ™‚ nice one kiddo

  18. Smita says:

    Incidents like your “bus one” keeps our faith in mankind alive no?
    And R is a true blue gujju girl ๐Ÿ˜€ and aren’t we proud of that? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And no you aren’t a sadist by celebrating RD’s getting lost! Blog were deviced to allow us to celebrate such occassions ๐Ÿ˜€

  19. NBose says:

    Awaiting the post on more Risms… ๐Ÿ˜€

  20. Tanishka says:

    That song sounds so much fun… ๐Ÿ˜€
    So R is mama’s gal… ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. anisnest says:

    hey don’t say R is getting crazier.. after all she is our daughter na ***running away***
    call her a good entertainer..
    what RD got lost? I remember M saying to me often.. I take you to all crowd places but why why you are never getting lost? Last time the father-daughter duo left me in mall and before leaving he said “hope you don’t remember house address or the way back home”.. are you both bro/sis in prev. jenmam?
    Kerela and coimbatore are the places on my wish list to visit..
