Why I will never become a motivational speaker...

Amma, my favourite Maths Exam coming up!

Yay...Jun, atleast this time will you score a 100?

Not possible can i.....

Jun!!! If you don't even aim for 100, how will you ever...blah must aim for the stars only then, you wont be left with a handful of mud blah ...and some more blah....

Amma, can i talk now?


The paper is only for 30 marks. How will i score 100?

We stare at each other for two priceless seconds and both of us burst out laughing.

Just one of those moments :)

The Philosopher strikes again!

Jun and I were doing पर्यायवाची शब्द  ('paryayvaachi shabd' - synonyms in Hindi).

We had just done पानी (water) - जल, नीर and something else that i dont remember because arjun's next statement blew me away. He said, " God is like पर्यायवाची शब्द  amma. He is one but he has different names and looks different too...but finally he is the same God.

A lovely dream

Jun emerges from the bedroom after a nap looking all happy and bright.
'I had a lovely dream!', he says.
What? What ? say all of us...
I dreamt that the building opposite my school crashed onto my school and flattened it. School was cancelled for one full year!!

My idea of a lovely dream just got redefined!!!

Jun's Zen moment

Jun was having a shower when his zen moment hit him.
Amma, am so glad my exams have begun.
Eh? Said the Amma.
Yeah ma.... Only when it starts, it can end no?

...and the master bowed to the pupil ;p

It was a family get together and Jun and I were admiring my mother in law and her two sisters. Dressed in their vibrant sarees, they made a pretty picture as they chatted away animatedly.

Suddenly Jun turns towards me and says, "Amma, if they start singing a song now and it becomes a hit, it will become a granny nomination, no?"

My son is a funny guy!

Relieved :)

My little zoo zoo

Jun: I don't want to go to the zoo with my classmates and teachers, i have seen the animals a hundred million times!!!

Me: But Jun, it will be so different and so much of fun when you go with your friends, no?

Jun : No No NO!

Me: OK, don't go. You can sit and study for the exam that's starting on Monday

10 seconds of  deafening silence later :

Amma, PLEASE give me Rs 175/-  I HAVE to go to the zoo...Please?


PS: He had a wonderful time. The highlight apparently, was  a deer pooping. Sigh.
