Ananya means One in a million...

To Someone...From Somebody

This blog entry is a love letter... yes I did write this, but never sent it to anyone!:D...

Hubby dear, when u read this u may be misled into thinking that it was written to u... but if u do think like that i dont mind!:) [Being on the safer see]

Actually these words were written just on the spur of the moment when i wanted 2 write a love letter,I wanted to write all these things so the person I would eventually love would know how I so truly feel....This letter was written around 8-10 years back!

hmmm...yeah, there was a time when i wanted to just write anything..and this came up thus!!

STATUTORY WARNING: This letter is not meant for anyone in particular!Reading this letter is not hazardous to your heart. I give you every right to copy the content and sent it to the one you love...(I'll b glad to be the cupid!)

Dear Someone,

We dont choose how we fall in love, not where, not even the person....the cupid strings his bow, strikes his arrow and we fall in love.

The only certainity is this- when love finds us, it kindles a flame in our soul that softens the edges between us and changes the way we see each other and the world around us. has kindled that flame in my soul and I know that you do feel the same too.Everyday expectantly I await your arrival,to guide me through the day and fill the day with memories for me to hold tight and sleep in the night.

Looking into your eyes transports me into another world where LOVE is the only language spoken. Feeling your touch makes me want to melt in your arms. Hearing your voice, it's a different feeling altogether. Loving you is more exciting than anything that has ever happened to me before.

Darling,when things are changing around us and the world seems to be moving at a much faster pace..Don't forget..I will be right there beside you,loving you and caring for you. I was made for you and for you I will always be there. Sometimes I want to hold your hands and take you to the farthest horizon,where a world awaits just for us...But sometimes I guess saying,"I love you" says it all and expresses everything!

Love you forever and always

Wondering what the title meant?!!!!

No, its not not some African term!

No, its not some expletives of some mundane culture!

And no...certainely no to whatever thing u may be thinking it is!!!

Well...lemme tell you how the word came into being!

Yes there is a story behind this one too...

On a bright beautiful morning when my sons and i were playing outside in the porch...Bittu, (the younger of the two) came running in full speed and shouting on top of his voice,"POOKAT, POOKAT!"

It took me some time to figure out what it meant and he kept pointing to a direction and kept repeating the word...then i saw what he was referring was a Pussy Cat!

LOL....I had a good laugh!

I wanted to title this blog as the joy of motherhood...but decided the present one was a better one.

Kids have their own way explaining things through actions or words that they create! It always amused me as to how kids try to imitate the phonetic sounds made by people around them.

The greatest test of being a mother is trying 2 understand what the kid wants and to decipher their words... I have comipled a list of words my kids use daily. It was real fun trying to remember all these funny words. (Oh boy! the time it took me to decipher these simple words initially)




fi-fy=fish fry





kae ko=ketchup





pookat=pussy cat




tatumma=tata amma/parrot







come pter=computer


wasen machi=washing machine

mom mom/mawbile=mobile phone




echi=air conditioner






sen eighteen=seventeen


taachu=thank u


aa bae cum=welcome


pechupoyi=pedichupoyi/got scared


notty boy=naughty boy

goo boy=good boy

chaka umma=chakara umma/kiss

tou toi=thottu pokaruthe/dont touch

don tacch= dont touch

sun di undo?=sundari undo?/asking if he looks good

veepokum= veenu pokum/will fall down

minene=vee nae ne/would have fallen down



kucham=kulikyam/take bath



pum purse=pampers


mister b=mr.bean/any cartoon
twinkle,twinkle...=tinah tinah...

There are still with kids at this stage ,when they are learning is real fun. It always sets me thinking that I used to be so helpless like them! and I grew up and so did my vocabulary! One day,they will grow up and be fit to fly away from my nest,from under my care...then I will have these words and other beautiful memories with me!
