My little rock stars

Memoirs of my mommyhood


Tunmunisms # 2

I am lying on the bed and showering my affections on Venky. Tunmun is jumping around all over me. I pay little attention to her. Β She is tugging my T-shirt and climbing over my back.Β Β I continue hugging and kissing Venky, not registering her.

“Mamma, Mamma…. “

Her voice gets drowned in Venky’s and my laughter as we continue to play with each other.

Then it comes loud and clear

Ek tho aul bachcha hai tumhale pash!

Translated – “You have one more kid, you know!”

Well, yes Mam. It’s hard to forget with such reminders :p


Conversations with GenExt

Conversation #1

Vibhu and Venky go grocery shopping. Vibhu takes Venky to the “health drinks” aisle and asks him to choose. Venky ponders and picks up Boost.

“Why?”, asked my curious half.

“Because it has Sachin. I kind of miss him.”

“Miss him ?”. Well, you know Sachin never lived with us after all πŸ™‚

“Yes, he retired, right? I don’t get to see enough of him on TV.”

There you go Sachin. The money you make as the brand ambassador of Boost is totally justified ! πŸ™‚

Conversation # 2

We are trying to find something which we discover “under our nose.”

“Mommy, Dadu told me something in Hindi. I’ll tell you in English okey?”


“It means …. ki god mein baby hai magar usko all around dhoondh rahe hain.”

“But that’s not English.”

“Yeah. Dadu said that in advanced Hindi.” πŸ™‚


Bagal mein chora, shahar mein dhindora” for you guys!! πŸ™‚

Conversation # 3

Vibhu has given Venky some maths questions to solve. Venky asks a trivial doubt.

“Venky, I am disappointed that you are asking such a silly question.”. Yeah, he is a Tiger dad too πŸ˜‰

“Oh, be disappointed then. But answer the question!!!”
