Prayer

The little one was feeling a little off tonight before going to bed..

San said "un kanne patturukkum.." (your eyes need to be warded off).

So she decided to do a little "drishti" thing. For non South Indians, this is a thing that parents teach you to ward off evil spirits and eyes by doing an "aarti" for the little kids. Think this helps the parents convince themselves that they have done something to cover the unknown more than it really helps the kids. (Persian friends tell me that they do something similar by burning incense and saying "insallah" three times).

Before she did this San told the kids "please pray to god to make sure you listen to parents, do well in school, not fall sick and be healthy, etc. " a

and the little one closes her eyes and goes "Ummachi, please make sure Daddy does not get any more big boo boos."

That was the sum total of her prayer. Now we have to do a Drishti for the Drishti. The little one knows how to get me all teary eyed.

Kids, what can we tell you?

wife's expert navigation skills..

I was so sure that I had to take a right out of the CET parking lot and she goes, take a left..

the dutiful and obedient husband that I am, took the left and realized that it was possibly a one way and did a quick U.

didn't know we made such a spectacle of ourselves...

:)

thanks.

We were right behind getting out from CEt and was waving to San - ofcourse she was engrossed in navigating you! But don't blame wives for things like that!!!

Dipali,

:)

Poetry, sathiyamaa.. you can ask her if I turned on my own or she asked me to.

Revs, hormonal, maybe.. but think of me as the male Jane Goodall with a bunch of women.. have been spending way way too much time surrounded by women that I might actually have become as hormonal..

:)

WA, thanks. Feeling a lot better.

:)
