Violin lesson for teenager (the teacher cancelled at , I changed my NT password at work and my phone email didnt update until I synced it  after I dropped him off Cry)and tennis for younger one, and then a piano recital at the piano teacher's house at 7:30 IST WE THOUGHT, but it was at 8:00 AM IST.We as a family are CHRONIC about forgetting dates, times and places. "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"

He? Wants to give it up... I was emotionally blackmailing him on the way home saying how two Paattis are rooting for himEmbarrassed. He reluctantly agreed... I so wish he wont give up learning and playing.  I live ina all white gaon, there is no access to Carnatic or Hindustani music. THIS IS IT. When we gather around the piano at friends' homes after Thanksgiving dinner, every one plays... I told him, learn TEN superbly well. It will give people joy wherever you go.

I wish I played like him, I would never quitCry

He played a River Flows in You and & Pachelbel -Canon in D

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


Shilpa, My husband and I never had any grand expectations from the kids, ALWAYS WENT WITH THE FLOW you know... its the greatest advantage of living in a no Desi town, and sending kids to a no Desi kid school... its very liberating... I found a flyer 12 years ago on my door after work one night it was "grand opening" for some piano studio, I randomly took him... hamare 10 pushton mein kisi ne piano nahi bajaya LOL who knows about these Western instruments yaar... just for discipline I would take him every Monday I think, until we switched to the 82 year old teacher 10 years ago... she thinks he is too advanced for her teaching level she is begging him to find another teacher, I found another one... but he thinks differently

Living a loong healthy life is important, its OK if he doesnt become Elton John I think sometimes... hamari kab tak sunenge nahi? HE IS AN ANGEL... NOT ONE TANTRUM. Even today when we returned after dinner at 6:00 AM IST, I said "I will give you three minutes to shower, and wear a decent button down shirt for the recital" he was ready in three

My 7 year old? GHANTA nahaya, ek ghanta apne baal gel karey usne, jaise uski baraat ho aaj

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?
More traditional girl's parents don't even eat at the girl's house after getting her married...let alone accept a gift of that scale...don't know what Ranjan was thinking...knowing how self-respecting her appa is!
And they're from Madurai and not .chennai...right?

Ranjan gifted it to her to display his affection for her, and to endorse HER love for her roots, its was harmless he is a good father in law, exponentially wealthy, he is worth 500 crores probably, a Nungambakkam apartment for 3 or 5 crores is peanuts for him, truly. Yes the R&B II relationship is doomed in so many ways... II didnt even open the scroll, its an apartment, Manny has already assumed II wants it

You can only do the right thing in life, you know, you cannot change people's perceptions of you
II is silly and enthusiastic and reckless but is not an idiot

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 ...


I make him play the same songs every day like a gawar... I know what you mean EN... mujhe lagta hai outside of a blazing career and an an Ivy League education everyone should have a passion, that keeps us awake, that sends our hearts racing, seeing or hearing about something while driving, should connect us to our passion... I see him hear Hindi on Sony or Zee TV and immediately try and play it on the piano if its catchy... he will play the Office soundtrack just by ear... I know he loves it a lot... even at 10:40 at night when we will urge him to go to bed he will play Pachelbel Canon... oru veri tanamaana aasai irukanum life la, ek bukhaar sa hona chahiye har life mein koi cheez nahi? it should make us restless if we dont do it, it should fulfill us when we do... I mean how many people can say their JOBS are like that?

I fully agree... if I were you I would use every trick in the book in arm twisting her into not quitting

Just like , outside of your job, what writing does to you, I bet you would identify with the same restless now when have to do something instead of writing...
It's more than a passion, I feel, ... It's the same 'veri' that you are talking about that makes u go on like how you hv been going on for last 4 months...,, unbelievable...,
