parallel lines


Mom to friend (On the Landline): “Nalla vellai. The medical reports say that there is no major illness. My son says there is nothing to worry. I am sure I will recover in a few weeks time.”

Son to friend (On the cellphone): Amma has stage four cancer, we are not telling her.

at the parents teacher meet


the teacher says: Your firstborn brings a sense of peace and calm into the class. He gives me confidence that I can teach and he will learn. I am pleased to have a child like him in my class…”

I am floating in this pink cloud somewhere.

And i try to forget that this is the teacher who has spelt writing as “writting” in bold letters on the cover of 20 class-work notebooks.

work in progress…


might as well tell you how i am spending my days.

am trying to fire away at the bollywoodian synapses that are surely stowed away in my brain.

am trying to see what lines i have in store so that i can do aneela’s tag

things arent going well.

i have only one line.
which is only a word.
which is actually a song.
so it may be disqualified
because it isnt dialogue.

“nimbuda” : from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, which i thought was a stealer of a lime er line. I love lemon juice. taller the glasses the better. In fact i can drink a whole jug’s worth.

which is also why the tag isnt going too well. because i keep having to get up to use the loo. after the whole jug’s worth.
