“Promise me , when your son  become a big and important figure to public, invite me to the ceremony” said his teacher cleaning the tears.

That’s a promise to keep.

Sick kids, sick mama…down with nasty viral infection and cough. Mama moved to kid’s room to keep an eye on them and also not to spread the germs to dada.  After much twisting, turning, coughing and staring at the wall, mama slowly fell into sleep in the wee hours of morning. I suddenly woke up and saw my sick daughter coming back from washroom on tippy toes after gently closing the door. “why didn’t you call me molu for washroom?” I whispered. “No Mama, I am 4 yr old big girl now. And I know you are very sick and don’t want to wake you up. you need to rest”. my heart melted..at that moment she became my caring mommy.

 Love you ente molu. Thank you for such gentle caring.


I live for little moments like these..

At the END of last sunday mass, priest introduced and invited a gentleman to the dais to speak. I could not hear the introduction, but he looked familiar. Then he started talking about immigration to Canada. Light bulb ..he is Jason Kenney, Canada’s Hon Minister of Immigration and Multiculturalism. He was there to thank our parishoners for sponsoring an Iraqi catholic family, whose life is in danger due their faith, to settle in our parish  http://beta.tweetcommons.com/tweets/MinJK/320723.  He also noticed, our parish represents a true multicultural Canada. His speech was done in 3mts.

He is a Catholic and attended mass with all of us. Up until he came to talk at the end, i did not know Hon minister was in the church. I am sure I was not alone. There was nothing noticeable. No police/ security, no motorcade, no crowded praking lot, no holding traffic to church…only a reserved pew at the front of the church, which most us did not notice. He was there for the whole mass, not just for the speech.

After the mass I asked and confirmed he is Jason Kenney, just to be sure. he interacted freely with us parishoners. Youth group had a bake sale for valentine’s day. he stood in line like one of us to buy goodies.

Coming from a country where every official thinks it is their birth right to hold traffic ( longer the block, higher the status), Z class security left right and centre, motorcade, always come late and what not, I was impressed, very impressed(altough I don’t agree to all his policies, that is beside the point)

He is just 42yrs old, young man had all the reason to put up a show off his status.

It also reminded me of a traffic jam which delayed us by about 2 hrs on NH-47 on my recent trip to Kerala. As we crawled and finally passed the bottleneck, we realised that some @#$%&@ local politician was giving a speech. C’mon what good are you doing blocking the traffic on a busy highway both directions by 2hrs?.And you thought you are serving the public?

Everything in western world is not bad.

Btw: this makes a RASAM post ( sigh! a dying project..double sigh!! fire that project leader!)

” Are you using this (toy) microwave on the table, C?. if you are not playing with it anymore, mama is going to throw it in garbage” I told my daughter.

” No mama, don’t throw it way. I want to keep it for my baby”

..yeah right..

Other day she asked, whether she can have my car when she ‘is big” to drive her babies around…


Hi  my friends, just saying hi. Hope you all have been good.

come to think of this post title..you all are my investment for present and future. God bless you all
