Anu and Shevane,
Fully agree on Amma vs Aunty thing, thats how it is however much wemay hate it, one of the greatest flaws of the arranged marriage system I guess. Kya karen, no system is perfect.
Anu, will do a Ranjan chapter next, for u Ranjan lovers that havent had a fix.

Appa hadnt made an appearance for a while and had to bring him in... he might even be able to grudgingly come to  accept R&B, his daughter reminds him of Rules for Dating my Daughter:

Rule One:

If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure not picking anything up.

Rule Two:

You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them.

Rule Three:

I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots.

Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose his compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants three sizes too small, and I will not object. However, in order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your ass.

Rule Four:

I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a "barrier method" of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate: When it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.

Rule Five:

It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is "early."

Rule Six:

I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you bleed.

Rule Seven:

As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like change the oil in my car and rotate the tires?

Rule Eight:

The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka - zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.

Rule Nine:

Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, all-seeing, merciless god of your universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not f**k with me.

Rule Ten:

Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a helo coming in over a Wadi near Baghdad. When my Gulf War Syndrome starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car - there is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine.

Wistful & Wishful Thinking

He drank quietly as Appa reappeared wearing an armor and carrying his most powerful arsenal

II texted Athim:May I take him home tonight?
He texted back "MAY? edukku kanna?"

II:Umm.. u know... edaanu rule irunda (if I break some rule)

Bala: U dont have to ask kanna

II:Thanks... I will not buy him anything before I ask u first

Bala did not respond

II:Is it OK if he plays with Nandu?

Bala sent back a smile

Things were "better" but may be it will never be like it once WAS
Thats the sad part about life you go to correct one wrong and there is not way to correct it without causing permanent damage, there is hurt all around

Maybe time will lessen or blunt the force of the encounter from two weeks ago, but it wont be forgotten


"I can bring him home whenever u want me to tomorrow" II texted

"U can pick up his uniform if u want" Bala TRIED

"REALLY?" II sent a emotocon with a party hat and whistle

"Love u more than Akka" she texted

"I love u more than Akka also" he texted back

She immediately gloated, sharing with R&B

He chuckled at first... "If there is enough to go around can Shravu and I get some" he asked wistfully
tried not to be jealous...

II roared with laughter
Appa lowered the TV volume (Appa forced Shravu to quit playing BTW, Amma sent him off to do moonji techu alambindu, dress maathiko routine.
which is basically wash ur hands feet and face, wear newer clothes if you are going "out", Iyer routine)
He was wasting water in II's bathroom...LOL

Letting a bucket overflow, trying to wash his FACEShocked
Munirka has water restrictions unlike posh Govt housing like D II
Akka only got water two hours a day and two hours in the evening, Cryso Shravu had forgotten what running water in a faucet even looked like

Now it felt to him like he was in  Gangotri...ROFL


"He wants to know if there is enough love so Shravu and him can get some" II texted Athim

"Avanukka? Chance ey ille" "All out" (For HIM? Not a chance!!) Athim sent a wink

She showed him the text  "Ofcourse not!" he hissed...

Unawares II's was gently stoking jealousy in the dude

Amma heard the bucket overflowing and ran to the bathroom and yelled
II went to defend Shravu

Battle of Sonepat occurred by the bathroom door

Appa attempted to chat with the dude

"did u have a good trip to Poona?" Appa asked

"yes Sir I did"
"Is it tiring to switch between both ur roles?" Appa asked bluntly

"Umm.. not really... its a lot of work" R&B offered honestly

"How do u do ur angel investing when u are at Spectrum all day?" Appa asked

"It can get a lil touch" R&B said softly

"Everybody is in India, except ur sister" (WHY DONT U QUIT PARIS) appa began

"umm.." R&B ack noncommittally

"Its a  (Paris is)lot of stress and it looks like ur father is depending on you" Appa explained

Amma became worried as she helped Shravu change

"ayyo let me go di... Appa edavadu tappa sollitta na avanukku kovam varum" (Hope Appa doesnt piss him off)

APPA ONLY HAS TO LOOK AT HIM
AND VICE VERSA
THAT WILL BE TAKEN CARE OF AMMA
THEY CANT STAND EACH OTHER
IT WILL NEVER BE LIKE HOW IT WAS WITH ATHIM
LOUD CHATTERING
LOTS OF TAMIL NADU POLITICS
DELHI GOVT POLITICS
BANK POLICY
AND A GOOD DOSE OF VANDITA RIBBING
IT WILL ALWAYS BE CHOPPY UNCOMFORTABLE AND HICCUPPY WITH RAKSHASAN

AYYO!!
THE CHOICE I MADE WHEN I CHOSE HIM
I DIDNT THINK OF ALL THIS
I ONLY WANTED TO BE WITH HIM
EVEN NOW THATS ALL I WANT
I CANT WAIT TO GET BACK TO MM
ITS 4 KMS AWAY AND I FEEL LIKE IVE STAYED AT D II TOO LONG
I WANT TO GO BEAT HIM UP FOR THROWING STUFF AROUND
I WANT TO GO THROUGH HIS BAG AND FIND THAT PACKET OF GUM
OR A BAG OF AIRPLANE SNACK HE NEVER ATE
I WANT TO SEE BIZ CARDS OF A RARE PERSON HE SPOKE WITH LOLWHILE ON THE PLANE OR AT THE HOTEL BAR
I WANT TO EMPTY HIS BAGS WHILE HE DISTRACTS ME CONSTANTLY


Amma was gone... she helped Shravu change

When they stepped out, after II cleaned up her room  a bit (she had folded away her saree before but her things from last night was still all over)

appa sat staring at the TV, Dude was on his phone

"Polama?" II asked

He nodded & half smiled

"Why dont u stay kanna?" Appa offered

Appa looked at the dude and mumbled "Umm... u can too"

"Thanks Mr Iyer... but we have to go" he said bluntlyEvil Smile
IAM NOT LEAVING HER WITH YOULOL

Amma made peace  "If we can see her for a night once a month we are happy, we will take more if she drives u crazy" Amma laughed

He stared at his wife
Appa:Why do u say all that Madhavi? Ishita is our golden child she is only a joy, never trouble (Appa became all senti)Embarrassed

"thanks Pa, next time I am going to taachi in ur madi/godee as u watch Sun News" "No taachi by YOU amma" Ii spat (taach is baby talk for laying down)LOL

"Ida paar... just behave urself and dont pick a fight for everything" Amma hissed
"I cant promise that"

The couple visited with Periappa...
Amma packed some coconut burfi for II
"Does ur sister like this?" she asked R&B

"I am not sure" he said honestly biting into it

"I am sending more" Amma said with pride

They did namaskaram.. (obtaining blessings)

Appa gave each Rs.101
Shravu wanted some too  for doing namaskaram He got Rs.51

"u shudnt be giving us any money" R&B said embarrassed

"its a tradition, her father would give her a gold coin each time if he could" Amma choked up

"I understand" R&B said somberly

She didnt have her purse handy she handed her money to him "Ennodadu dont take it" (its mine)

Amma and Appa walked out in the burning hot twilight sun all the way to the car and waved as the couple left with the boy

4 kms... weekly visits at times... yet II teared up
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

R&B had asked Tan to drop Nandu off

The boys went up to the first floor...

II went to the kitchen to check on dinner passing by Ranjan, Manny and Vik in the grand formal living room that had the curvy staircase on one side

Manny was having a heated argument

II fled the scene terrified, but she could hear

"Dimpal ke liye KOI RULE NAHI SAARE RULE MERE LIYE" Manny shouted

"Kya kahoon usko bata" Ranjan shouted back

"saal mein 10 mahiney woh Paris mein rehta hai kabhi usko kuch kaha?"

R&B fixed himself a drink and attempted to go up..

"Dimpal" she yelled

R&B sauntered in...

"ASK HIM, if u can be FAIR TO ALL, then ask him Dad" Manny challenged

Ranjan was sputtering with anger

AGM was nothing but trouble, it was bringing out the worst in every Bhalla... the worst in the already rattled, shaken, disillusioned Bhalla

Mahavir was unfazed... he cleaned chicken while Sant Ram chopped onions & tomatoes, the kitchen smelled like biryani
They were pleased to see her

"Aapke liye kamal kakri laaye rahe hum" Mahavir beamed

II smiled weakly

"Thanks, main bana doon?" she asked

"Yahan chicken ha... ucchalkar aapse aazadi maangegi" he joked

She smiled softly
"Har murgi ki aakhri tamanna, ek shakahaari se parichay ho jaaye" Claphe cracked himself up at his words of wisdom

"True" Ii said softly, getting stuff out for her vegetarian dinner... as things began to shake and explode in the living room

The background mood of the story swings like the pendulum ...Appa and Manny grudging and reticent and gushing with possessiveness are so alike...loved the 10 commandments of Appa ...i have saved that for leisure reading as well...Sharvu considering a bucket of water as Gangothri:) so cute...The typical iyer family scene...made me nostalgic...The kitchen scenes at both II's homes...Lovely ...coconut burfi like soft chewy and extremely yummy:)
Thank you for the sunshine and smiles you bring into my day Nisha...
