Mummy- The Irreplaceable

Mummy,  Amma, Ma. Just hearing this magical word gives a sort of comfort felt by every being in this world. Words can never describe the role a mother plays in the life of a child right from its birth .

My mother is someone who has carved me and shaped me into an individual who I may not say perfect, but does have values that am proud I have inculcated.

My mother, a self- motivated woman has been the sole reason people define me as sorted, head strong , disciplined,  self-driven and above all a ‘good- natured’ human being who has a sense of ‘ justice’.

To this day if I aspire to do something, I owe it all to my mother’s encouragement. Heaven alone knows whether I will ever find such a selfless person anywhere in this world.

Mummy, today I am sitting here in Mumbai beating the humidity, the heat. I miss your touch, the comforting words you tell me, the way you worry about me (though I don’t want you to worry), the way you pamper me. I admit I have often felt it annoying when you asked me whether I have eaten grapes, whether I have face wash with me, whether hot water is coming in the tap, whether you should switch of the lights in my bedroom.

But Mummy, let me tell you something, I know you do it because I will always be your little Sharika.
I promise I will take care of you as long as I have life running in me. You deserve it and I will always be there for you. Maybe I am being a little emotional here. Please forgive me if I am rude to you at times, it is not that I am being selfish or I have changed cause I have grown up. It’s just that I can never be as intelligent and mature as you are and hence I behave that way. You will always be the smarter person and I can never get there. So Mummy, please forgive my flaws.

I might come across several individuals in my life. People who have hurt me, few who I might think are nice but turn out to be otherwise, people who try to take advantage of my good nature, selfish people etc. But I know if there is one person in this world who will never let me down, who I can trust blindly, who will never ever hurt me, it is you Mummy. If not you, then who could it be.

This one is for you:

Mummy rejoiced in my glories, she smiled more than sunshine
She cried when I cried, It hurt her more than ten thousand needles combined

When I spoke non-stop she enjoyed my chitter and chatter
She never said no to my desires, she looked into it one after the other

I can only pray one day I become the lady I have seen you to be
Even If I don’t, I hope I become fifty percent - that would be luxury

How you tolerate me, I often wonder
But that’s just you, to your humility I surrender!

You made sure I shined in class and all contests
You waited with bated breath monitoring every step of my progress

Whenever I felt disheartened losing a match
You gave me a boost and the winning position I did snatch

Without you what would I be?
Mummy , being the best is your cup of tea!

Why traffic in Namma Bengaluru is the best in the world!

Before all you Bengaluru residents kill me for the article heading, read on! I can’t assure you relief from traffic but seriously – I feel for you!

1. You needn’t go anywhere to learn how to be patient.  Half your life will be spent in traffic and that’s how you learn it! P.S :  On second thoughts you might even end up becoming A patient.

2. You might know all the languages in the world and may also know how to speak it in the most refined manner.  However the traffic in Bangalore will teach you something else. The language called- !@#$%*&^%! (censored for obvious reasons!)
3. Google maps is no longer your best friend.  You learn that the time taken is actually inversely proportional to what is shown.  Also you would prefer to take some other route that you discovered.

4. All your plans of saving to buy that latest phone, laptop, dslr have been dropped.  Now all you want is a helicopter! Where can one find one?!
5. You become buddies with the traffic cops. Honestly speaking these peopl…


A foodie is someone who goes beyond just putting food into his or her mouth.  Foodies don’t judge people based on their eating habits, simply because they are too concerned about their own food to even care.  Technically speaking a foodie is someone who breathes, relishes, feels, celebrates and then eats food.   That’s the difference between a foodie and someone who just likes to eat.  The same difference between someone who owns a DSLR  and someone who actually has a sense of photography.
  As for me, when I see food, I go eeeeeeee!
So the next time you think you’ve spotted a foodie and sincerely wondering which category he or she may fall in, this checklist might help.
·Menu cards are souvenirs for them.·Their eyes light up if someone recommends a dish they find worthy of having.·While others are ready to gulp down the first thing that appears on their plate, foodies  analyse the texture, preparation and presentation.·They feel compelled to share their knowledge about a certain dish e…
