Letter 14 - Missy at school


Dear Missy,

I had no doubts admitting you to school, you don’t have a full time nanny unlike your bro, nor are you the only apple of your grandmother’s eye; the love and the attention and most importantly the diligent baby-sitting often gets affected for reasons that are worth not quoting here.

You are a well behaved child, you understand when I say no and you very well know what irritates me, I had to convince your appa quite a lot for the admission. Those were the days when we thought we had to take you to speech and hearing because shelly was talking so much, but you hardly uttered a word; your biggest strength is your expression and boy, you convey that in style.

You were supposed to be joining school last Monday but thanks to unnecessary illness (yeah, one of the reasons not worth mentioning), the labeling on all your school properties, the bag, water bottle, lunch box, cap and slippers were done a week back, I had to re-check. I set the clothes and instructed appa, click a pic once you get her ready. Obviously he didn’t, and while I was busy handling your bro’s tantrums, received an update from your dad who stood outside school for two hours that you reached your class, happily spending time with ajji.

One of the parents has to stay with the child for the first few days - a rule and Ajji it was. I heard that you played with the kids, ate your snack box and asked for appa just once. That’s quite a feat for the first day in school my love.





I am hoping you will enjoy the time outside home baby, just like me. I can’t wait to listen to your tales from school, soon soon!

Love,

Amma

Letter 13 - Shelly at school




Dear Shelly,

When I decided to admit you to pre-school earlier this year, everyone yelled at me; “It’s too early”, they said and as usual I went against all of them. I did not do an extensive research on choosing the right play-school; there were hardly any choices, and bingo admission was done.  

It didn’t strike to me when I labelled your name on all your school properties, the bag, water bottle, lunch box, cap and even the slippers (papli is my favorite word). I was prepared for today, had everything handy for the separation tantrums, but surprise, the way you entered your class (totally silence before the storm situation) who’d say it was your first day at school, away from home.
Your grandma cried and how; cursed me why I had to put you to school so early. We were asked to pick you up by 11am.

An hour later ajji received a call from the school asking us to pick you up because of uncontrollable crying and not taking breakfast. The class teacher told me that you ran all over the place trying to find a way to get out of the school; was least interested in the toys provided and gave a damn about cartoons on television while all these successfully soothed your classmates.

I expected you to cry or get excited when you saw post an hour, nah! No luck here too. You were in my arms from the aaya and said bye to everyone at school. Always expect the unexpected, wondering if this should be my mantra.




This was about your first day at school and the biggest positive from today is that you like to wear your school bag which till yesterday was a nightmare. God bless your Bhagya ma’am.

Love,

Amma


Funny update on Day2: Shelly snatched lunch boxes from his classmates during snack-break and put them in their respective bags, I don't want food nor should you guys have food logic.

ಅವನ ಗುಂಗಲ್ಲಿ


ಅವನು ಕ್ರೇಜಿ, ನಾನು ಅವನ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಕ್ರೇಜಿ.

ಆಗಿನ್ನು ನನ್ನ ವಯಸ್ಸು ನಾಲ್ಕು, ಅಜ್ಜಿ-ತಾತನೊಡನೆ ಪ್ರೇಮಲೋಕ ಸಿನಿಮಾ ನೋಡಿದ ನೆನಪು ಈಗಲೂ ಮನದಲ್ಲಿ ಲಾಕು.

ರಣದೀರ ನೋಡಿ ಲವು ಲವು ಸಾಂಗಿಗೆ ಹಾಡಿದ್ದು ಹೌದು ಅಪ್ಪನಿಂದ ಒದೆ ತಿಂದಿದ್ದು ಹೌದುಅಂಜದ ಗಂಡು ಸಿನಿಮದಿಂದ ನಮ್ ಮನೆಯ ಹಲವಾರು ಗಾಜುಗಳು ಆಯ್ತು ಪುಡಿ ಪುಡಿ, ಇನ್ನು ಮುಂದೆ ಸಿನಿಮ ಪದವೇ ಇವಳ ಕಿವಿಗೆ ಬೀಳಬಾರದು ಅಂತ ಇಡೀ ಸಂಸಾರ ಸ್ಯಂಡಲ್ವುಡ್ ತ್ಯಜಿಸಲು ಆದ್ರು ರೆಡಿ. ಬುದ್ದಿವಂತನಿಗೆ ಹಲವಾರು ದಾರಿ ಅನ್ನೋ ಗಾದೆ ನನ್ನ ಲೈಪ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಸಕ್ಕತ್ ನಿಜವಾಯಿತು ಬಿಡಿ.

ರಾಮಚಾರಿ ಗೆದ್ದಾಗ ಅಜ್ಜಿ ಕೈಲಿ ಜಾಮೂನು ಮಾಡಿಸಿ ಹಂಚಿದುಂಟು. ಶಾಂತಿ-ಕ್ರಾಂತಿ ಸೋತಾಗ ಅತ್ತಿದೂ ಉಂಟು.
ಯಾಕಿಷ್ಟು ಕ್ರೇಜಿ? ರವಿ-ಮಾಮನ ಬಗ್ಗೆ? ಈಗ್ಯಾಕೆ ಅವರ ಮಾತು? ಇತ್ತೀಚಿನ ದಿನಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ರವಿಚಂದ್ರನ್ ಟಿ.ವಿ ಮತ್ತು ರೇಡಿಯೊ ಮಾದ್ಯಮಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಹೆಚ್ಚಾಗಿ ಕಾಣಿಸಿಕೋಳ್ಳುತಿದಾರೆ, ಯಾಕಿರಬಹುದು, ಕುತೂಹಲ ಮೂಡಿಸಿತು ಮನಸ್ಸಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಗೋಂದಲ.

ಹೇಗೋ ಕೆಲಸ ನಿಮಿತ್ತ ಹೊರಟೆ ಮಾಡಲು ಭೇಟಿ, ನೇರ ಮಾತಲ್ಲಿ ಅವರಿಗೆ ಯಾರು ಇಲ್ಲ ಸರಿಸಾಟಿ, ಅವರೊಡನೆ ಮಾತನಾಡಿದಾಗ ನೆನಪಾಯ್ತು ಚಾಟಿ. ಇದಿದ್ದು ಒಂದೇ ಪ್ರಶ್ನೆ, ಸಿಕ್ಕಿದು ಕೂಡ ಒಂದೇ ಉತ್ತರ, ಆಮೇಲ್ ಬಾರಮ್ಮ!!

ಸ್ಟಾರ್ಗೆ ಅಷ್ಟು ಗತ್ತು, ನನಗೂ ಮೂವತ್ತು ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಮತ್ತು, "ಒಂದೇ ಒಂದು ಫೊಟೋ" ಅಂದೆ, ಹುಸ್ಸಪ್ಪಾ ಕ್ಲಿಕಿಸಿತಂದೆ, ಅದು ಇಂದು ನಿಮ್ ಮುಂದೆ.




Happy Birthday Ravi-mama, nimgaagi Colors Kannada page nalli naanu baredha message -
