This Twitter na, is pretty addictive…now I know why RD is clucking away to glory in that corner, sneering at me and saying ‘bola tha na, bola tha na’
Anyways, since Twitter is easier, handier and whatever-ier…Risms are easier to post there 🙂
But the blogger in me doesn’t let me let the blog go as is, and since its MY blog, I think its totally okay to copy paste those twitter stuff here 🙂 + blog doesn’t have character limits which means, I can write on and on and on and on……
There is loud loud loud sound of Ganesh bhagwan going for viserjan on the 7th day. Honestly I am so so surprised that no religious person is making an issue about these folks putting up stuff like Halkat Jawani, and Balam Pichari when they are going for viserjan. With about 10 Ganpatis going on the 1.5 days, 5th day and 7th day viserjan, I have had my share of being religious and going on to start cribbing.
RM: My God, these guys are so loud
R: Acha song hai na Amma (background its Balam Pichakari), she says as she dances to the LOUD music!
RM: Well, I have no issues about the song, but I dont think its okay to play it during Ganesh Viserjan
RM: Well, well, its very loud and not God wala song
R: Not to tell like that Amma, everyone has their way of praying, so its okay whatever praying anyone wanting okay?
I shut up!
We are watching Highway on my Plate. Apart from Masterchef (which I dont know which channel is it on now!) this is one of the few programs, R and I watch. Anyways, so the hosts are now at Shimla eating some Jalebi Kesar Milk. R is looking at the jalebis being made.
R says ‘Amma, my lips are melting’
R: Arey my lips, they are melting, just looking at that!
What she means is that ‘her mouth is watering’ *rolls eyes*
RD has gone to Sabari Malai and R seems to be missing him. She tells me ‘Appa office nahi go karenge?’
RM: No he has taken the week off from office
R: Acha, Appa office missing is fine, but you not letting me miss school to go to Sabari Malai..you are only taking Appa’s side
RD made us hear to this song which Shankar Mahadevan has sung on Lord Ganesha ‘Ek dantaya, Vakratundaya, Gauri Tananaya Deemahi‘ and R and he were listening to it on his phone before the day he left for Sabari Malai.
What a song. Gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. Anyways so the brat says ‘Appa, yeh uncle itna shout kyun kar rahe hain’ when he was singing the Aalaap 😦
I was super disappointed that the brat doesnt understand music and stuff in those lines until RD pointed out that she was FIVE!!!
Anyways, all that went poof, when yesterday night, she made me hear that song TEN times over and over again, because she thought it was ‘awesome’ (thats the word she used, as I fell off my chair in total shock!)
Shankar Mahadevan, you have a new 5 year old as a beeegggg fan (we heard like 10 other songs of his including a Tamizh one which neither of us could understand but kept nodding our head saying wow!)
Amma, says the brat, as we go to pick up some vegetables, since Appa is not here, let us eat all nice nice things
Pav Bhaji, Pani Puri, Boiled Corn aur…aur…and Thepla…Doodhi na Thepla, since Appa not liking them and always telling not like not like okay?
So RD you are missing all the gastronomy delights eh?
As festivals come one after the other, R has an important question
R: Amma, August 15th which Bhagwan ka birthday hai?
RM: Well, its our Independence day.
I dont think she understands the meaning too well, but she just nods her head in agreement
R: Toh flag upar karing right?
RM: yes, you hoist the flag
After 10 minutes, toh January 26th ko kis bhagwan ka birthday hai, tab also we doing flag upar na?
RD and R are huge fans of Jhalak Dikhala Jaa. I am not a great fan honestly, some of the dances as per me are not child appropriate, but most times, I just let R watch it! So RD is not there and R has pleaded to him to tell me to let her watch the finale. I say okay, and then just let her watch it, since its a Saturday night.
They keep showing the ads for Big Boss in the the program.
R: Amma, Salman Khan (Big Boss!) starting from tomorrow kya?
RM: yes, but dont even think that I will let you watch that ever!
R: why are you getting angry, I am only asking if its starting from tomorrow, I know you will not let me watchofy it. Its okay!
By the way, does anyone know why we put Ganesh bhagwan into water after giving him so many flowers, and decorations and yummy prasad for 10 days, and just throw him into the water?
If you do, I will be highly obliged with an answer in the comment section, the brat has been pestering me for an answer.
I do the usual ‘Ask your Appa’ to her
R: Appa toh Sabari malai gaye, toh you only find and tell me okay? think about it Amma.
help needed please?
