Some weeks are hurricanes. They don’t give you time even to breathe. one thing after another more like chaos leading to chaos. First I fell sick and could not be in blogosphere for a very long period and then this 19th I lost my Grandmother ( maternal) my Nani, she as around 94.
How fast is becomes was…. sad and scary.
Nani ( Amma)
Nani ( Amma for every one,which means Mother) to me meant every thing good and comforting, her white Saree’s with thin borders, faint sweet smell of pink Vaseline, spic and span house everything in place , everything in order, her yummilicious pickles and marmalade’s and my beautiful summer vacations. she was an excellent cook and a giver. She lived for others, a beautiful generous resilient soul..no hurdle or hurricane could dampen her spirit and energy. Even in her last days the invictus in the frail body would get up and do things on her own as much as possible.
Nani I will miss you a lot and up there amongst the brightest stars where I think I saw you yesterday, I wish you happiness and peace.
My Mom wrote a beautiful tribute and a haiku for my Nani. And when I was reading what she wrote about her mom I felt this was exactly how I felt about her( my mother), Supportive, encouraging, inspiring, best teacher, gossip mate, fun friend and a lovely blogger.
she is a beautiful heart. Do stop by at her blog whenever you get time to read the tributes.
she is unpredictable ( in a good way) like me, today she wrote a poem on me. It is so funny and those who know me will agree it is a perfect description of this insane,eccentric silly person that I am.
I am posting a verse of the poem here please do go to her blog to read the rest.
“She knows everything,
Frogs don’t dream
Giraffe can’t scream
Snakes can’t hear
Crocodiles have tear
She knows everything,
Lions like chocolate mousse
Pythons drink carrot juice
Rabbits can climb the tree
Tigers watch movie if it’s free……..”
Wish you a lovely week friends and don’t forget to call/hug you loved ones and tell them how much you love them. Cos you really never know when you will never get that chance to share that again ever…..
