Coffee With Mi

Mi, I toast you with a tumbler of freshly brewed kaapi!

Some Flashback!

Its vacation time for Vidur and naturally, we end up talking about a lot of things he did as a child. 😀 Oh, parents!. Funny thing is how kids go through the phase where they a/ want to hear about their babyhood b/don’t want to hear about it c/ want to hear about your childhood! d/ want to hear about the grandparents childhood. Well, yesterday was about his – and the talk came around to sweets – for one of his birthdays – third, I think, we made mysorepak – about a 200 pieces because he insisted on distributing to everyone in our building, his school, and Nightingale’s Elders Home which is quite close to our place.

Now this – naturally – had to lead to the Punyajanam incident when Vidur was 11 days old. Kondu mama, Gopu mama, the mannis were also there and what fun it was! I told Vidur about the tray of mysorepak we made and kept on the window sill to cool – and how it fell right side up on the second floor – and then how we managed to tip it off from there to the ground floor, still right side up!!. The haalat of the tray was pathetic – all smashed up, but the sweet was intact!  Here’s a pic of us on that Punyajanam day.

I also recalled to him about the daily trips the two of you would make around the campus; then our lovely trips to Fashion Street and the long walks along the seaside. What a golden time! When you made dosas in the Bhaskara house kitchen, we could smell it on the way home in the corridor!

Incidentally, I was blasting off some Prince and while looking at the next song to play – found “Every Breath You Take” and instantly burst out laughing. The Bass Guitar! How hilarious! I must ask Ravi to look for some music am unable to find. Ah, Ravi – he went on a trip to Europe during the time we went to Mumbai and see who he met in Florence:

Totally cool, eh? I just love this pic. Two favorite people in a single frame.  He’s taken a whole lot of pix and you know what a fab eye he has – obviously can’t reproduce them all here – but I’ve been drooling over them. Ah, I want to go to Europe too. I just began saving! 😀 And talking of Kamal, we saw Panchatantiram again for the umpteenth time and enjoyed every moment of it all over again!

Here’s a lovely thought for the day, related to the power of a positive attitude:

Rain – you can complain about it, or try to have fun jumping in the puddles. You’re going to get wet either way so you might as well have fun.

Sharing is caring!
