Risms :)

R and I are coming back from the daycare in a rickshaw

RM: Aaj kuch homework hai
R: I finish kar diya
RM: okie, any new rhymes
R: haan, ek sikhaya teacher ne…
RM: oh which one
R: hmm..errr..hmm..oh look at the bus, its yellow and going, oh Amma! it looks like the bus but it is moon
R: aisa kuch tha

And just for records, the actual rhyme is

Oh! Look at the moon
shining up there
Oh Mother! it looks like
a lamp in the air

All, I can thank God is, that R is not a lyricist!!!


RD and I are midst a very very serious argument regarding..well actually I dont remember what is was about..but we were arguing in loud tones

R: Stop fighting Amma Appa, not good for health!!

We both shut up 🙂


I am screaming at R about something during bed time..RD has gone to close the door..

Just as I finish shouting and R finishes a crying session, my hand hits my forehead and a pimple breaks with blood oozing out

RM: oh God, abhi blood
R forgets to cry, gets very excited *Gory* :kidhar kidhar
I show her my head
R: Bola tha na Amma, shout nahi karenka…jitna you shout, utna boil breaks okie?  kal se shout mat karo, toh blood nahi ayega
RM: !!!!

R and I are in the rickshaw on the way back home

RM: did you eat your tiffin
R: yes
RM: ok good
R: Kyun diya mereko idli…
RM: Kyun kya problem hai?
R: yesterday, you didnt poocho me na?
RM: So what, you like na idlis
R: yes, I like, but next time se, poochke dena, toh main barabar eat karungi okie?
RM: !!!!

Asking for permission to fill her tiffin box! hai bhagwan!


So RD and I got a chaniya choli for her, and RD was just asking me casually why I was insisting on a chunneri for it, because it didnt need one..

RM: Well you know, all girls may wear, and then she may want to wear it as well

RD: oh okie

And so we ended the conversation

Yesterday, while trying to figure out what to send to her daycare for the garba, I realise the chunneri has no relation to the chaniya choli

RM: R, lets forget the chunneri rey, this looks good without it as well
R: Nahi Amma, mereko dena daycare ke liye
RM: Kyun?
R: Because, everyone else wear karenge toh mereko bad feel hoyega na? iskeliye send kar do!

My God! Cant discuss anything in front of her eh?

    ROFL!!! Reading this at work is a bit hazardous as I’m snorting with laughter and trying to not disturb my colleague! Loved it all! The innovative nursery rhyme (still trying to figure out where she got the bus from all that!), the liking the idli but still requiring you to ask her, and the boil breaking when you shout! R is going to be my dose of laughter if I ever need cheering up!

  2. metherebel says:

    I love R’s version of the rhyme … O’Amma was the best 🙂

    Fighting not good for health??? Of course you have to ask her permission before you fill her tiffin, isn’t she the one eating it?

    Of cunneri, I can say like mother like daughter!

  3. Jazz says:

    Haha.. lol on that aisa hi kuch tha rhyme.

    And she will look lovely in that chaniya choli. Wish to see the pic. 🙂

  6. ROFL
    R is a doll, a rockstar. She is so adorable. 🙂

  7. RM with her hindi accent i feel like i am listening to a conversation in a parsi household and not a tamilian.. okie not even gujju

  8. Jas says:

    Cute R… I loved how she preached shout nahi karneka 🙂

  9. What to say about R?? She is a sweetypie na??? Abhi se shout nahi karne ka aur pehle poochne ka bhi, okie?? lol
    I was going to ask you RM that you have written so much about your dear Fisher women, dear Rickshaw drivers, dear Bus drivers, dear traffic policemen etc etc… we are waiting for OUR DEAR R’s Risms 🙂
    One more thing, have you stopped telling stories to R kya?? It’s been so long since you wrote one 🙂

  10. Aww, you should post a pic of her in chaniya choli, RM. Chaniya cholis look really cute on little girls 🙂
    LOL at taking permission before packing her lunch box 😀

    • R's Mom says:

      they do look cute..but to put them on is a scary preposition…I am already dreading Tuesday when I have to make it wear for her before 7 in the morning!

  11. ashreyamom says:

    lol.. RM , i must say R is soooooo cute.. Drishti suti podunga.. :D..
    so u have got a mediator for ur fights.. , a poet in hand, and some one can grasp things from others conversation.. great kid..

  12. chipmunk says:

    brilliant!!!!! he he he if u get angry blood will ooze he he !!!! she is building her own rhymes its good 🙂 her brain works so fast!!!!!!!

    my day started with big smile when i saw the title Risms !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. I’m first??? 🙂 Being sick leaves a lot of time to surf, read, and comment.
    Anyways, I love R-isms! R and rhyming, well at least she’s creative!
    “Stop fighting, not good for health.” Hahahaha, she’s so adorable.
    The idli condo was the most hilarious. I guess form now on you have to take her permission before packing her lunch, and then she can eat it happily.

  14. Ashwathy says:

    All, I can thank God is, that R is not a lyricist!!!
    Give her a break, will you?! How old do you think she is anyway! 🙄 Sheesh! 😛

    R: Stop fighting Amma Appa, not good for health!!
    We both shut up

    Shame on you! U actually fought in front of the kid? 😡

    R: Bola tha na Amma, shout nahi karenka…jitna you shout, utna boil breaks okie? kal se shout mat karo, toh blood nahi ayega
    ROFL!!! U deserved that!! R is turning into your dadi amma now! 😆

    Hahah now she has demands on her tiffin also! Wow, at the age of four! 😯 Maanna padega boss!
