LIFE LESSONS......

18 yrs of my life have flown birds migrating .. from here to russia .... and with each winter that comes and each summer that goes ... they shed more feathers ... but learn new paths to the place.they call LIFE..... so did i. ...with every milestone or age group i crossed i learnt a little ...

at 1 ... the whole world was talking about how cute aishu was and how she used to drool ... and her first word was "adooo".... in tamil it means there .... so mom would ask me "aishu where is the cow and i would say "adoo"and point at a cow ....i wonder what happened to all that intelligence and fast learning .... :D.....i was a chubby kid .. hehehe the damn baby fat never seemed to have left me ...... :D.....at one i didnt learn much ... learnt how to crawl ...actuallly that also i used to take the help of a cushion ..THAT POOR CUSHION..... may his soul rest in peace :D


at5. i learnt that crayons were everything .... they were the answers to any problem or book ... u got a book .. U DRAW...... u found an empty space on the wall U DRAW...... (but if u stay at grandmas place then she will break ur knuckles and ur crayons if u touch her wall ..... funny she still screams at me if i go near the wall ....hmmmm)..... but crayons were it all ....... in schoool after the ayyamma gave u lunch and u had drawing period ..... u used crayons ... if u had to finish drawing homework u used crayons .. somehow i still love that feeling of not knowing what u r colouring but just colouring a page BECAUSE u have crayons.(or bcoz u flicked ur little cousins box when her mom dragged her for a bath......:D)....

at 10.... homework was the only thing on my mind .... we just had to get done with homework .... and then run out to play ... but ten ... is a pretty boring age ... no one does much ... u havent reached being a teen ... u r bigger than the 3 yr olds ... ur just hanging in between ..... oh but when i was ten i learnt u get into competitions and then remain there till u r done with school .. at ten i won my first quiz ....... (see see the intelligence was there at 10 also .... :D...) .... but mostly at ten u learn that sitting near the driver in front .. when going in the auto .... is the best place ..... and being the last person dropped off and the first person picked has its pros and cons ......most of alll u learn to adjust .. when there are too many kids in an auto ... u should just accept a squashed leg .. and water on ur dresss because invariably this one kid willl feel thirsty and .. she will take out her bottle which will be hung on the side which will be in her "basket"... we all had baskets ... and if we forgot our books or not we never forgot our baskets .....



at 13...... i learnt u are in high school ..... u are introduced to politics in school .. u have responsibilities ...... ur GROUP .. is everything to u .... it is ur duty to keep its pride and .... win everything .... u ask for permission and practice .. after school u practice ... u write notes from a friend who isnt interested in competing .... the first excuse was "miss i am taking part in this".....:D... and when ur competing ... best friends become foes ......even after the competition was over ... u dont talk for sometime ... if u win u make new friends ... if u loose .. u talk about that person to another friend ....... it was a cycle ...... that just never seem to end .... :).... but it was good and that is when u learn to be a SPORT:)

at 16 i couldnt wait to be an adult .... i couldnt wait to drive and vote and be callled an adult ...... but 16 is the weirdest age atleast it was for me ........... my temper flew like no mans business i got pissed with anythin any one said ....... i really was a tantrum throwing having a fit doesnt like being pushed around teen ... whose mom and dad had one tough time .... but now stuff has become so much better ... :)(or so i choose to think)....... at 16 i was in junior college .... i was introduced to fun .. going out ...mobile phones ... and may be a little studies ...... :D...... i learnt more than i thought i would ... i made enough mistakes .to build petronas the second out of them :) ...... i had issues with so many things ..... wriggled myself out of situations .... and everything i did make me stronger

Today i am 18(complete)*grinss from ear to ear*... i agree i do have a long way to go ... but the ride so far has beeen pretty ok ....... with a lot of bumps ... some reallly big ditches ..... some "straight roads"......the pace wasnt consistent .... but my car(yeah car ... an accord :D)....never stopped ...... never ever ... there were no fuel days where i choked my way through, some pleaces where i ripped and burnt rubber (i mean tyres )...:D ...... and the journey has been gorgeous through out ......... hoping for more highways .............and a few ditches ...... little bumps ..... but never a puncture ...... :).... aurevoir



p.s i had a blast on my birthday ...... thank u mom ,dad "nids , huz , kummu , jon , sana , doll, pink , muscle man , aska , gow and kapil...... for making me feeelll so special ......... i felt on top of the world ..... felt like i was a queen ..... muaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh .... i have never felt so loved ever .... there was an aura of absolute love in the rooom .. and now i REALLY KNOW WHAT HEAVEN FEELS LIKE >>>>>> AND I LOVE IT THERE ...... :)........ muaaaahhhhhh

hi litchi girl!!...
so THATS where the photos went missing... . we had a good birthday too...[ even though poor dad and me were banished to driving the roads till four pm!!!]... i liked the fact that so many friends of yours turned up..[ even if they never finished the ice cream!]..... it obviously shows you are doing something right..if teenagers can give up their morning sleep and land up with a guitar!...[ the neighbours are still to get over the cacophony.. but thats another story.. and birthday i guess!.. ha ha ]...
love..mom
PS:
A special thanks to all you pals of aishu...for making her ahem ahem eighteenth birthday such fun for her... you dont know how thrilled she has been .. ask me .. i have to hear about it everyday!
