Tale of a mouse and a cat

A small fat mouse
Ran around the house
The big brown cat
Saw the mouse so fat

The cat chased the mouse
All around the house
And caught it by the tail
While it was hiding under a pail

The big brown cat
Ate the mouse so fat
Curled up under a chair
And took a nap with a purr

This is a poem which I sang while playing with my son. It was great fun to sing with action.
Am thinking to make small puppets for the cat and mouse and sing this song.

Happy Womens Day

Am proud to be a woman. Am proud to be a daughter, a sister, a wife and most importantly am proud to be a mom.
Everybody today wants to make the world a better place to live. It couldn't be thought of without women. The contributions made by women are tremendous, be it any field.
Being a woman, we should be proud, motivated and be a wonderful role model for the future generations. Being a woman is all about being ourselves.
The world is in our hands, lets contribute our part for its betterment. Not a single thing can stop us. We are like brooks, flexible changing courses over obstacles, but not getting stopped. And for sure, like the brook, over the course of our journey, we create a beautiful world. Whatever we do, small or big, lets do it with all our heart. There's no stopping, no failure. The future is in our hands. Lets shape it with love, with determination and of course with pride.
Get empowered, the world is sure to become a better place, and eventually the best place.
Think of womens' empowerment , I think of the great tamil poet Bharathiar.

"நிமிர்ந்த நன்னடை நேர்கொண்ட பார்வையும்,
நிலத்தில் யார்க்கும் அஞ்சாத நெறிகளும்,
திமிர்ந்த ஞானச் செருக்கும் இருப்பதால்
செம்மை மாதர் திறம்புவ தில்லையாம்;

சாத்தி ரங்கள் பலபல கற்பராம்;
சவுரி யங்கள் பலபல செய்வராம்;
மூத்த பொய்மைகள் யாவும் அழிப்பராம்;
மூடக் கட்டுக்கள் யாவுந் தகர்ப்பராம்;
காத்து மானிடர் செய்கை யனைத்தையும்
கடவு ளர்க்கினி தாகச் சமைப்பராம்;
ஏத்தி ஆண்மக்கள் போற்றிட வாழ்வராம்;
இளைய நங்கையின் எண்ணங்கள் கேட்டிரோ;

Lets all work together to make the great poet Bharathiar's words very very true.

I salute my mom, the best. She gave me this life and cared for me that am here today, to write this for that matter. And I salute my sisters, for their love and support too helped me grow. And also I salute all my teachers throughout my education.
Well, on International Womens Day, its appropriate to think of the women who shaped my life. As I salute them today, I also get another thought. Why not remember the men who helped me grow into a successful woman? And that brings my dad first. I salute him, thank him and I want to let him know that he had molded four successful women, his daughters. Without his love, advice and guidance we wouldn't have made it. He never had a doubt in his girls. He gave us the right education, freedom and what not - all the best things in our life. And many a thanks to my sweet husband who encourages and acknowledges me in whatever I do. Also I think of many more people on this day, not mentioning just to keep my post short.

Be proud of being a woman. Keep moving forward. Happy Womens Day!

Why is the Orange called Orange?

Why is the orange called orange? Why is apple not called red? May be because we have red apple and green apple, but have only orange orange. :-)
Well, I will tell the story of orange called an orange.
Once God created all the fruits and vegetables. He was naming each one of the fruit and each one of the vegetable. It was a grand ceremony attended by all the flowers, animals and birds. There was music and dance. It was all fun.
There was a huge applause when round red fruit was named Apple. Beloved Banana, gorgeous grapes and proud pineapple were all done.
Then rolled the round fruit. God named it grape fruit, because it was round and juicy like grapes. But the round fruit did not want to be called grape fruit. It wanted its own identity and asked God to name it Orange, on its color. Orange suited it as teh fruit was orange inside and outside. So God was about to agree. Then grapes came forward and said, " I was happy that you were going to name this fruit after my name. Please do not disappoint me". So God named the round fruit Orange. And then he created another similar fruit and named it 'grape fruit'. All the fruits were happy. So we have orange and grape fruit which looks like orange.

wow wow patting myself for this story :-). So no more confusions between orange and grape fruit!!!

Welcome Sunlight

Weather is getting better and the sun is kind enough to shine through our windows. Me and my son open the blinds. We have lots of fun. A good way to start the day. On the course of our play, I found myself singing this.... And yes, I think it makes a good post in my blog!

"Welcome sunlight welcome
Into our sweet sweet home
You bring your warm light
And make our home bright

I play shadows with you
On the walls, on the floor
I see butterflies fluttering
Deers running, bunnies hopping

Its so much fun to play
The shadow game
Welcome sunlight welcome
Into our sweet sweet home"
