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!

Gambling amongst the chitter chatter, a small pause to catch her breath She rocked back and forth holding her little tummy, as though inside it were a child unfed.
Tears rolled down in all its glories to compliment the joke put forth How does one churn balooney into humour, with no one to provoke?
The unforced blush had a strong impact on complexions never seen These moments took their breath away, these moments didn't seem to demean
A déjà vu moment was felt around, the birth of a pleasant revisit Hungry they all became for more, cos no one wanted it’s exit.
The hero here deserved a pat on the back for this act of charm and wit. He gave the funny bone some good exercise, and made everyone’s ego quit!

Sometimes its nice to let yourself loose Laugh like never before.... Infact...its always nice.....

Chennai’s crime rate ensures that the metro is ranked a creditable 24th among 35 major cities in the country while Coimbatore stands at the 22nd position and Madurai at the 30th.  However the situation in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru can send a chill of apprehension down anyone’s spine.  Delhi has earned the skeptical distinction of being the most unsafe metro in the country, topping the list of the number of crimes.
