A new prayer

As you might have seen in the previous post, we had a religious function yesterday. The deity was still outside today. This morning we heard some prayer like sounds from the living room, and did a little investigating.

It was Jr. doing her imitation of mommy praying in front of god ! She was offering flowers , rose petals etc. and praying. Some of it was genuine, some of it was made up gibberish that sounded like Sanskrit and some of it was actually in ENGLISH !!




Did you notice lines like "god I will wake up in the morning and be a good girl , I will not paduththy(tamlish for make trouble) my mommy !"

We were laughing for almost an hour after this episode. Best part was that she was so engrossed in her prayer that she never caught us taking the two videos !!

aravind, welcome to this blog.

visithra, you have to listen to this..

after listening to the video a couple of times what we figured out was

1. it starts off with "i will wake up in the mornign and be a good girl tomorrow"

2. then comes some "ganesha pancharatnam" phrases

3. then she is actually singing some "raffi" songs in sanskrit tone !! the nerve !!
