Birthday wish for someone special!

So, yesterday was my dear blog's birthday and today my dear mom's!

So, before I am off to bed, I would like to write a wish for my mom on her birthday.

My amma (Picture courtesy: 84 mm studio)
A mother is always special for every child. And every child feels their mother is the most beautiful and wonderful person they have ever met. So is it for me. I just love my mom (and dad of course!). Having grown up in India, I have lived with my parents till my marriage and moved out to the US with my hubby. As my achan was always working and busy, my amma was the person who was around for most of our (my brother and I) everyday needs. Now, even after over 3 1/2 years of marriage,  and calling K-town my home, I miss the "home" where my parents live.  Yes, thanks to technology, I do talk to them everyday but it is still not the same given the different time zones and work hours. However, one beautiful thing is that with time and now the distance, I connect to my amma more than ever.

What do I miss other than that ? Well, of course, the food. The delicious food (made with love :)) which was always  there when I was back from school or from college or from work. Specially packed lunch and the best tea ever ( I love my mom's masala chai).

As much as I love my hubby and love my life here with him (I am a super romantic person;)), I miss my parents and my brother. Probably it is because you can be the same dearest daughter irrespective of whatever you do :)  whether you yell at them or are upset with them or just hug them!  Just like every daughter-mommy fight, we have had our share of arguments and fights (we still do :P) but they are momentary and do not last for a long time. I think I have that similar relationship with A, my hubby - does not matter whether I fight with him or am angry or am happy (**knock on wood). It all dissolves and it is all fine and important for that relationship.

My mom is my best friend and I am really glad to be her daughter. I have always been in awe of her wonderful creativity. She is extremely creative and capable. She is dextrous and extremely talented in organizing things. She is a beautiful mom, great mother-in-law (I am sure my sis-in-law and my hubby will agree), a lovely wife and I am sure a good sister and sister-in-law.

So here is a birthday wish for my mom. Happy Happy birthday to the lady, without whom I will not be the person I am today! By the way, I will write something better soon by Mother's day weekend.

Good night !

Day 57: Manjadikuru (The Little Red Seeds)

Do you guys know about Manjadikuru ? They are the little red seeds. For anyone who is from God's own country or is familiar with Kerala wouldn't have missed this. There is something special about holding them, playing with these seeds. Usually, most homes will have a small 'uruli' or a bowl filled with these beautiful and shiny red seeds. In most Krishna temples in Kerala, you will come across a small 'uruli' with Manjadikuru. People believe that it is lucky to take these seeds with both hands and just play with them when you visit a temple. Some even leave a couple of coins as they do this.  In Guruvayoor (my favorite place), you can see a big 'uruli' with manjadi. 

So, why and how did this become prevalent ? It goes back to a story from the past. Many years ago, there lived a poor lady in northern Kerala. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Guruvayoorappan (Krishna) and always wanted to visit Guruvayoor.  She could not afford to buy any offering (nived…

Day 207: Malayalam Movie Dialogues: Nadodikkattu "Ethra manoharamaya"

Dasan and Vijayan team is one of the most popular character pair in Malayalam movie fraternity. Every Malayalee will remember the dialogues from these movies. The pair of Lal-Sreenivasan as Dasan - Vijayan just brought (and still bring) smiles and simple joy among movie goers. Between Sathyan Anthikkad and Priyadarshan, there were three movies directed using the same team for the lead pair. With the script written by Sreenivasan himself, these movies have become immortal in the history of Malayalam cinema.
Among the set of 3 movies done using the combination, the first one was 'Nadodikkattu'. The picture that depicts the dialogue is from that movie. The second and third were 'Pattanapravesham' and 'Akkare Akkare Akkare'. Even though each movie was good this one is something very special. The dialogues are so popular that I don't think any of us would 'not' use them in everyday life. 
This one given below is by Vijayan (played by Sreenivasan) that s…

Day 210: Malayalam Movie Dialogues: Diamond Necklace "Arunetta"

Time for a recent movie context. This is one of my new favorite actor- Anushree. This scene is from a movie called Diamond Necklace. It is not a comedy movie but this specific actor's character does bring in innocence and sweetness that will make you smile. Why do I like her? Well, she has a beautiful knack to enact serious, comedy, strong roles with ease. She came into movies through a reality show and trust me she is a real find. This is her first one and she plays a small role as the protagonist's innocent wife. The innocence of 'Rajashree' just won so many hearts. 
The dialogue reads "Ende Arunettane manasilkkan ini vere aara ullathu" means "Now, who else is there to understand my Arun":) For those who understand the context you can smile, the rest, please go and watch this one :)
