Vaasanta Sameeramla

I used to watch a lot of serials at one point in time. Stop making faces now, I used to watch those Ekta Kapoor Sanskar, Parivar, stuff in the beginning before they stretched beyond imagination :).

Ruturaagalu as far as I remember was the first telugu daily serial in DD. I used to love the title song soo much.. actually my mom was very much against watching anything Telugu in those days, movies, serials, songs.. nothing doing. This serial obviously was so popular that if we walk in the streets during that time we could just hear that song echoing throughout in the afternoon. It was the time when we used to come back home from school. I just loved it to bits, felt it was so soothing and even today when I listen to it, it is no different. I guess all of us from AP would have at least heard that song once, if not in our house at least while passing in the streets during the telecast time.

They prove me right time and again

I just hate watching TV these days, especially the news channels, I dont even want to read the newspaper but I have to keep in touch with what is going on in the outside world, so I have to :(.

I get 3 Newspapers each day.. Eenadu, Jyothi, and DC but no paper gives the same news in the same manner and leave me all the more confused as to what is true and to what extent. Sakshi of course is a different matter altogther, for me it is just a Congress party pamphlet, nothing else. So, I make do with the above said three to get a gist of what is happening around. Does anyone feel that DC gives us more of international coverage than the actual happenings in and around the state or is it just me. It is more of a glam-sham gup-shup type of a thing than an information source (purely personal opinion though)... hmmm as usual I am doing my Koti Kommachi veshalu, so back to what I wanted to say..

For the past few days my site had been having a lot of views with search tag of Raalipoye puvva so I was wondering why everyone is so melancholic these days but now I realize the actual reason, the releasing of some video clip to media.. yeah yeah the one with NTR jr. singing away this song to glory while drinking with his friends. I so hate the channel which shows the clip time and again with this guy singing and the nerve to claim that the video was just before the accident of the kiddo. It is just plain ridiculous and an outright blunt lie projected time and again. Who the hell do they think are they fooling. The kid was wearing a different attire, he looks different than what he did at the time of accident, and what the heck, I clearly remember Rajeev in that dirty hairstyle of his, long straightened hair, fat and yuckky on the day of the accident but the video clip shows him differently. NTR's dress I understand can be changed but how the heck can Rajeev grow his hair in a matter of hours and put on so much weight. Plain disgusting the way the channel and the people try to cash on things leaked out and there by lose out credibility!!!!

The kid smokes, boozes, has a high-flying lifestyle so what. I am not the one to encourage booze and other evils. It is up to an individual to decide what to do and how to live his life as long as he/she does not uproot other's lives and/or disrupt them. Those who know me know how I love this kiddo who has come up despite all the odds and carved a niche for himself in this world. Even in the clipping he was singing a sad song, singing to a group of his select friends in whatever place it was. They just seemed to be sober and having fun in their own way. I dont say he has best of the voice or it was the right thing to do. For God's sake, he wasnt even singing a raunchy number, the song was plain sad song that he was doling out for his circle...

I so hate the people behind bringing it out and using it to tarnish his reputation and nipping his political career in the bud for speaking out the truth in rallies.. sigh.. I might not agree with his political affiliations or the way he keeps as if Nandamuri clan is the be all and all, remove the Nandamuri tag and look at him I like that guy whatever he is with or without the tag.

The first thing I want to do is sue them for misguiding the people and then deal with the rest... but then i know I wont be doing anything and forgetting it in a matter of few hours and leading on with the life... sigh... Nothing can be changed I guess :(

104.7.... feeling hot hot hot

The other day, in fact day before yesterday, I was down with fever. I had some issues with the maid where she quit and I had to work, had some other health issues, caring for the baby, cleaning up, cooking, phew... and on top of it suddenly I go to sleep and get up with severe chest pain which might be gas pain but since it has gone down without any medical intervention I have no idea as to what it was.

Cut the scene and here I am right now with dry cough hacking through my lungs, throat and making a mess of everything and not to mention the noise pollution that it causes for the LO and the distance I have to maintain from her so that she is not infected (baaaah). It hurts me not to hold her but then her safety and well-being is far more important than my feelings.

So, it happens that I finally see how it feels like to have high temperatures... actually 104.7 and I felt like I was on fire and the whole body was aching like hell, the headache with the cough, the back pain, the heat.. my God, it was hell.. it lasted a few hours but when it did, it seems to have squeezed every bit of my energy, sigh..

But no regrets, I now know how it feels, an experience it was which I dont ever want to relive.

PS: Now you know the reason why the post after post after post after a long break... what to do, cough wont let me sleep, does not allow me to go near the baby, so there comes into picture my blog that I have been giving a cold shoulder for quite some time.

A Fan... nopes an a/c already.. God Bless Kiddo!!



Wow... what a girl and how mature at this young age is all I can say right now.. I must confess that I havent liked Shruthi Hassan at all in the first look, the hairstyle, the dressing, nothing... nothing at all, but then I just saw her in highheelconfidential, so that may not be what I would have felt if I had seen her movie rushes or something or somewhere else.

I just happened to see this after I saw the link in a social networking portal... man, this girl is something I need to watch out for. I must agree that she is the best Kamal Hassan has made to date. You must see the entire show but this particular part, she bowled me out and she kind of grew in my opinion like a Himalaya mountain (no exaggeration).. Just imagine how Hanumanji grew from his tiny form to as big as a mountain, exactly like that.

The maturity with which she answered the most personal questions without feeling bad or bogged down is simply amazing. I still struggle and get angry and flush when something very personal comes up in discussion, but there she sat as cool as a cucumber and she does not seem to be fake, nothing not even an iota of fakeness. I so love her outlook and wish LO grows out to be as mature if not more. I am sure the kid must have gone through a lot of ups and downs and what not to be what she is today in spite of having what might seem to be the best situation for a lot of us, but it is not easy to get past everything and be happy and understand others happiness..

So from now on if you ask me who is my favorite person, it is going to be this girl. She wasnt seeking pity, she wasnt avoiding anything, she did not brush up stuff under the carpet, she just seems to be at peace with herself which is really really commendable at such an young age. I love her so much so much so that I wanted to go hug her and make her feel happy and yeah of course feel the happier...

Loads of wishes and good luck with your debut with Luck and wish you have a really really happy life ahead... mmmmuuuaaah..

Dear Daughter - 3


Dear LO,

Firstly a biiig mmuuaah for being the angel that you are and making parenting seem a cakewalk with your wonderful nature. You complete 3 months and are officially an infant (my newborn turns an infant already). I already take a lot of lessons from you, that easy smile, that friendly nature, that no fussy attitude.. I know these can change any time and this may just be a passing phase as everyone around me points out but still i love each moment and want to enjoy it as long as it lasts.

Doc says you are just about growing right and I dont have to worry that you don't have tires like the babies in the ads or those I see on the road and envy. I used to love the Farex babies and the baby product ad babies so much, plumpy with tires on the hands, legs, tummy and everywhere and used to dream of you being like them. Well, to be honest I was disappointed that you were so lean but you know what I love you much much more than them. I wanted you to be like that but fat or lean, black or white, with lots of hair or bald, I just want you to be a healthy and a happy child nothing more nothing less. If you ask me anytime what do you want in my life, I would say for you to be healthy and happy nothing else.

You seem to be growing leaps and bounds and the once really really tiny coming out of my belly baby is a handful now. You have not put on a lot of weight but you are not very fragile either. You are a friendly baby who goes to anyone who offers to carry you, give them loads of smiles and sometimes even those sloppy licks and coos and make them feel that they are the center of your universe :).

Amma loves you for being the nonfussy kid who loves to hear her sing. She loves your eyes darting back and forth to catch a glimpse of me walking around your swing. You love your toys and play with them in the swing when I am not around you. You love it when I read the newspaper to you, (yeah yeah I know this is the only time I can claim whatever I want to ;) and feel happy), you love listening to the Telugu and English rhymes that I play in the system as well as sing out for you and some times make me think you are repeating them after me cooing musically.

The best thing I can say right now is you are in love with nature, you love the trees, you love the birds, you love the sky, the air, the water, the butterflies, the flowers, the grass, the pets, animals and everything and anything that you come across in this village home of ours. You have your play sessions in the early hours with singing birds and massage under the open sky and you actually miss those sessions and get fussy on the days it rains.. I am scared to take you out of this nature and put in a concrete jungle but let me think of it when it comes to that and let you enjoy it all.. lap it up my dear when you actually can...

You are such a forgiving child and I am amazed at your pain tolerance, you hardly even let out a moan when the needles pierce you while your mom howls outside your vaccination room. This month out and you will be free from needles up to the 9th month, so waiting up for it be get done with.

All in all kiddo, each passing day I fall in love head over heels with you. I never thought this would be possible but yeah this feeling is out of the world. Every move you make and every breath you take is a blessing for me and yeah some guardian angel from above has sent you to me to get through this prior to meaningless and goal less life.

Love you sweetheart... just be the same.. be happy and healthy and I just dont want anything else from anyone in this whole wide world :)...

Love,

Amma.
