Nisha! Wow! I learnt violin for three years, dropped it because I was way too much into work and did not have time to practice. I kind of feel bad my parents did not push me into learning music early in life. Piano too. You have bards in your house!

Tell your older to please go on. After he kind of masters it, he can go easy. When he starts working, it is a no go. Hobbies. Otherwise, tell him you will get all SoSy women to write him emails urging him to continue LOL

I am extremely critical about my kids, like a typical Iyer Amma, I never praise them. When someone says something nice I look at them like "OK WHO did he kill?" "WHy are you saying nice things" He plays the two songs I attached EXACTLY like the YT videos, I mean SPELL BINDING... I dont even care for his straight As or MIT or Harvard, I keep begging him "Dino vaasi da, please ida maatram vidaade" (play everyday, DO not give up), he completed one year of violin and his teacher is a YOUNG 22 year old like you guys, has a Bachelors in Classical Music from UCSC and Masters from University of British Columbia and plays for the Philharmonic in townClap
She says "Hes one of those kids THAT GETS IT THE FIRST TIME" Getting such a compliment from a gora is like getting Benjamin Netanyahu to give up PalestineShocked
I just wish he goes on for the next 5 or so years... saari zindagi he can play at people's homes when they gather for dinners Hum to tabhi tak sun paayenge jab tak yeh ghar par hai, college chala jaayega then he is all on his own, his gift for everyone elseClap

There you go, I am arrested by your sense of humor, dry often but very deep. Makes you think kinds no? (Trying to imbibe your style here).
British comedies are mostly your kind of humor ... Have you watched
" yes minister " . I used to absolutely love the show... Used to be Friday nights I think, early 90's in india...
I was new to SOSy when I read a post of yours wondering about what "Thehattal " means. Too funny it was... LOL
I may have found the SoSy Connatation to the term "thehettals " and came up with a post for it in the thread when you were away for a week... Don't know where it is now
Lying in " the dust of the Rabbi" perhaps...
Will try to dig it out for you sometime... LOL


Hey! Thanks LOL  I guess I think too much. I see lot many parallels between me and R&B, to put it very briefly. Smile  And humor is something I would go for anytime. Smiles and laughter even in strangers are worth it because they are infectious. Smile  I love your posts too, the way you read the characters and situations.

"What time da?" I asked my teenager he goes, she said it was her house and  TODAY!!

AWESOME!!!
Atleast you remember the month!!!  I am like "Raatri full a ingeye irukalama (can we stay here the whole night?) He was like "Ummm... I cant remember the time"ROFL

ARGHHH!! Any way many kids didnt show up, paavam, she is 82 and still tirelessly teaches...  my oldest plays the piano like II sings... I bet all the Desi kids in this country play great too... but I find the teacher makes him play a couple extra pieces just so everyone can hear how good he is. The teacher has a  another 84 year old room mate, who absolutely adores his playing, every Saturday she will hold my hands at the Y and say "I havent heard a boy play the piano like this"

My god!!your oldest plays the piano!!! How many connects!! Unbelievable.,,,
I am so happy that he makes you proud by playing the piano so well...
Well my connect is my daughter plays the piano too.
Would you believe it if I told you that she gave 'River flows in you" and another piece called " sad story " for her Trinity grade exams last May.
She only plays the piano. She started on her own . We had a Casio the toy one and had these noted from the time my husband took a few classes and he have it up cos of his travel. She learnt Carnatic fit three years and she started like that reading my husbands notes. Did not realise when she started going to you tube and following more ... The pressure of finding a good music school got to us when we lived in gurgaon... She has been playing since...
She comes back from school, kicks off her footwear and sits to play the piano. Now she has a Baldwin... Yep she went for a traditional one...Food comes later.
The best she plays is when she finishes her semester exams , comes bl home and plays endlessly...
The home is quiet and I just listen...

The connections SoSy brings...
Best wishes for your son, madam writer ...

Divashni,

I am pretty reckless like II, I would even go as far ahead to tell him JUST DO MUSICBig smile, but kal ko naukri ke bagair kaise kaam chalega.Cry Millions do well in college and make a good living but only a handful of musically gifted  become Elton John, nahi?  Hes DOING A LOT. Leadership, Honor Socy,  Science Bowl,  AP classes, works at his job 8 hours a week, Volunteers at my 7 year old's elementary school 4 hours a week... like a typical Desi kid... nothing is too much... But I only love one thing he does thats piano and violin... padhai to har koi kar sakta hai, who can play A River Flows through you like Yiruma? Very fewCry

Wow Nisha, ur son is accomplished, pls ask him to continue. Do more emotional blackmailing but dont let him discontinue.  When I see the kids nowadays, how I wish I had learnt something, dance, singing. That parents also never encouraged and other factors also affected. My son plays tabla on all the things at home..oven, window panes, table, his sisters head, but when we ask to go learn under a professional, he is like no mom I want to stay at home and be lazy. Now he is into only football, karate(wants to discontinue), swimming (only with half heart)..

Makes me want to back 25 yrs back and re-live my life in a different way.  Kash

congrats on thread 14 Nisha...started with a bang...manny is being Manny... she is not like sam who loves II and adores her...she is skeptical about her and may be wants to show her how lucky she is to get married into a rich family...hope she sees II in same light as Sam see soon...flat in chennai...appa would surely flip..he couldn't buy a flat in all these years and now his daughter has one in the most posh area...fate and destiny are really funny..

Very interesting updates Nisha. Story is getting interesting.

I liked their walk from MM to Sam's. He realized that he should not be talking about his past escapades with II.
So as far as Raman is concerned his father is as much dead to him as his mother is. To him Ranjan is probably nothing more than a caretaker of the house now. 
I am not sure about Ranjan either. It feels like he may not be guilty.  He misses his wife terribly . But he sure acts guilty before his son. II is his only hope to bridge the gap between them.

May be Chachu is right. Raman does not seem to fit in India. He does not like selling cars. He is a straight forward no nonsense  kind of guy and he does not talk. He cannot suck up to people neither can he tolerate people sucking up to him, which is much needed to run business in India at some point or the other. To be honest his knowledge and intelligence will be wasted in that business. Venture capitalism is much more challenging and rewarding. He seems to be so more at home in Paris.He behaves as a guest in MM.
The mystery around Ranjan's scandal is the only thing that might pull him back to India.

But I cannot imagine II as Parisian. She belongs in India among the family. I like their stolen moments in the midst of everyone and everything in India better than their honeymoon in Paris.

Manny appears to be a little distrustful of II now. But she might come around later once she knows II.
So Ranjan gifted Appa and Amma an apartment in chennai. I am not sure if it is Punjabi/rich people tradition to give realestate as wedding gift, but I personally did not like it and I am sure appa and amma won't like it either. Who would want to live in the house gifted by their daughter's in laws?
