Moving flowers

Once I was taking a walk along the woods. All of a sudden I was attracted by a wonderful fragrance. I was curious to find out. So I followed the scent. I sniffed and sniffed and took 5 steps to my right.
(My son asked, "Amma, are you making up?". I said, "May be yes or may be not". He asked, "How old were you? and I replied, "hmmmm 2 years"! My son gave a look at me and smiled. I continued with the story.)

I sniffed and sniffed and took 5 steps to my left. I sniffed and sniffed and took 10 steps to my right. Then I took 15 steps to my left.

To write or not to write...

Its been a while and it was itching for me to record few things here. And I thought the time for some writing has come and sat down here. Here they are, my cuties..asking for videos, games, pulling me, talking right into both my ears..and well, I'll better stop and go, read a book for them...If possible will continue this after few more times the Earth spins on its axis :-)

experiment with art

I always like artwork and crafts. But I've been thinking am not so good in drawing and its a fact. The point is, now even if am not a great artist I want to try things...am not shy to display my not-good works. :-) And having kids is an advantage now, that I can try many things with them. Not to mention the fact that the kids are not interested in few of those activities. Anyways I do it!
I liked my friend's daughter's painting, she had done a painting method of Wassily Kandinsky. And I tried something similar to it..drawing with crayons and then a coat of water color. Here it is...
I dropped a bouquet in water!!!! Howz it? :-)
And then I tried drawing flowers and coloring them with different shades. But couldn't get the effect I wanted. My husband said, I should get a nice paint and try that and that it wont come nicely with normal water color. Whatever, I wanted to put that too..Even though it is not very nice, its good enough for me and I had a good me-time doing this while kids were sleeping ;-)

But thanks to my friend and her daughter Dheekshu for having given me this idea..Its so interesting and am trying more...will add once I take pictures of those.

Me, a bad amma

Always thinking for the kids. What can I play? What activity can I do? How to engage them so that TV or electronic time is minimal? How to stimulate their minds? How to build a strong foundation?,  etc etc.
Well, yesterday morning after waking up late, making kids' favorite pasta, then feeding them both while letting them play interestingly, I felt tired and dizzy, may be because I had not eaten. So by the time I was about to eat it was 11.30 am. Kids wanted TV and I said yes, but for half an hour. In that time I finished breakfast, prepared for lunch and took the kids out to play. Then it was 1.05pm and kids wanted TV again. So I said yes to TV and went to finish off my cooking. It was 2.20 when I asked the kids to switch off TV, but they were not willing to do. So I lost my patience and shouted and then TV was switched off. Well, after lunch and resting for a while, kids went to the swimming pool. After coming back and taking bath they were playing. And I went to take bath and we had plans to go out in the evening. By the time I took bath, they were watching TV again, along with my husband who had put something. I got very uncomfortable. So I came and switched it off. My husband told the kids, "if you had not seen much time in the afternoon, now I would have seen TV"!!!! And my elder son came and told me, "amma you are getting bad" !!!!!???!!!!! I try to control my wishes to see TV for the sake of kids. I want them to get their physical. I play with them even if am tired or not interested. I want them to learn more things. And I am bad amma. Am very happy now!!!!! Don't I know to give them TV or video games and spend time for myself? Will stop here.....

Life in Clouds

In the picture above, I see a fish swimming by, do you?

And here above, three fish jump away happy to have escaped from the big fish sweeping by...

Your minds can say a different story as imaginations differ. Its not a problem as long as you see something :-)

ரம்மியமான அந்திப் பொழுது


விண்ணைத் தொட்டு பிடித்துவிடவே உயரும் மரங்கள் 
பிடித்துப் பாரென்றே பஞ்சாய்ப் பறக்கும் வெண்முகில்கள் 
இவ்விளையாட்டை கண்டுகளிக்க கருநீல போர்வையை 
முக்கால்வாசி விலக்கிப் பார்க்கும் வளர்மதி 
என்னே ஒரு ரம்மியமான அந்திப் பொழுது

Nature - diverse and powerful

The sun shines bright
Yet the mild wind chills;
Its inappropriate to ask,
which is powerful, for...
Both are mighty in their own!
And this is the thought I got
While going for a walk!

Row of trees which stood bare
Sprang into life within a week
Colorful flowers blossom all over
Dancing to the chirps and squeaks
How do they know this is the time?
Where was this life hidden all winter?
Seasons are four, knowing their power and time

The nature is so wonderful
With hills, plains, oceans and deserts
With all its hues and colors
Few calm and few noisy
Whatever it is, it so beautiful
And this is the thought I got
While going for a walk!

அறம் செய்ய விரும்பு

ஆலன் பள்ளியிலிருந்து ஒரு நாள் மகிழ்வுலா ஏற்பாடு செய்திருந்தனர். ஆலன் மிகுந்த மகிழ்ச்சியுடன் தயாரானான். அம்மா செய்து கொடுத்த ஆலூப் பராத்தா, வாழைப்பழம் மற்றும் தண்ணீர் பாட்டிலுடன் கிளம்பி விட்டான். அவர்கள் சென்றது ஒரு பூங்கா. பல வண்ண மலர்களையும் செடி கொடிகளையும் பார்த்துக் களித்தனர். செடிகளை மயில், யானை போலவெல்லாம் வடிவாய் வெட்டி அழகு செய்திருந்தனர். அதைப் பார்த்து வியந்து மகிழ்ந்தனர் குழந்தைகள். பிறகு சாப்பிடும் நேரம் வந்தபொழுது ஆசிரியர் குழந்தைகளை புல்வெளியில் வட்டமாக அமரச்செய்தார். ஆலனும் அமர்ந்து தன்னுடைய சாப்பாட்டை எடுத்தான். அப்பொழுது அருகிலிருந்த மரத்தின் பின்னிருந்து பார்த்துக் கொண்டிருந்த ஒரு சிறுவனைப் பார்த்தான். அவன் பசியோடு அனைவரது சாப்பாட்டையும் பார்த்துக் கொண்டிருந்தான். ஆலன் ஆசிரியரிடம் சென்று, "அறம் செய்ய விரும்புன்னு படித்தோமே, அவனை கூப்பிடட்டுமா?" என்று கேட்டான். ஆசிரியரும் பெருமையுடன் அனுமதி கொடுத்தார். ஆலன் அந்தச் சிறுவனை அழைத்தான்.  பயந்து கொண்டே வந்த அந்த சிறுவனையும் அமரச் செய்து பாதி பராத்தாவும், பாதி பழமும் கொடுத்தான். பள்ளியில் புரியாமலிருந்த சில பிள்ளைகளும் "ஒ இதுதான் அறம் செய்ய விரும்புரதா?" அப்படின்னு புரிந்து கொண்டார்கள். பிறகு அனைவரும் புல்வெளியில் விளையாடி விட்டு கிளம்பினர். மகிழ்வுலா மிகுந்த மகிழ்ச்சியுடன் பயனுள்ளதாகவும் அமைந்தது.

Hope

Lost in the mighty ocean
Lucky to have held a log
Its the wise thing to hold on to it
Instead of thinking the vastness of the ocean
However vast it might be
we just need a small log
And that's a great hope to find the lighthouse
So its all about focus
Focus not on the ocean
But on the lighthouse
Log is the faith in God
Just cling on to it
in times of distress!
