Ikr tell me about it living in a country where you don't a holiday on our important festivals. Trams continental marriages and trans time zone poojas   Tongue.

Keeping a part of your identity and culture is a lot more difficult but completely worth your time when see kids understand and participate nahi??

Poor Amma Nisha my heart goes out to her. You sketch her beautifully!

Sri I really loved what you wrote! I remember my thatha chuckling and riling us with his wobbly smile " Enna di inda band livestrong it must be live simple and yennaku get me a band that says dignity always"!!
He continues to go strong with all his stories and an every day yoga session with any great grand kid that he can grab at 5 in the morning. LOLEdited by blue5sky - 6 years ago

OMG!! I had an insanely busy day yesterday, Tuesday night I realized Wed was Saraswati Pooja, I scrambled to get a portion of the food cooked early morning and make the arrangements, the all employee meeting was in the morning, I got to work 15 minutes late.

I had a lunch date with a friend at Noon, that was set up a month ago, I didnt know was on Saraswati Pooja, ended up having a coke and chatting with her

Parent Teacher conference was at 4:00 PM, i had marked my calendar for 4:20, so the 2nd grade teacher rushed through it from 4:20 to 4:30

I had signed up to volunteer at the school from 6-8 PM selling "spirit wear" (tee shirts with school logo) also without realizing its a festival day, I wrote to the PTA parent and asked her if I could move it up, so I could do it from 4:30-6:30 and did that until 6:30

 Flew home, finished making kheer and vada and rest of the meal, prayed, offered, a couple friends came by, we ate and wound up for the night.

Its hard to be a religious Iyer in America I am telling you... sigh!!!

that's exactly what I suspected that u will be tied up between kids and Pooja. I was running around like that yesterday night. Did Pooja and prayer with kids at 9pm Sleepy
So true - difficult to keep up with daily lives and also take care of religious stuff here. Or we should plan to take off during the religious holidays to keep our sanity !!!

Amidst all this, you have a mahakaviyam in making ... Kudos to you. Clap
Take a breather during weekend.

Amma is not without her flaws, she wants to be able to focus only on her kids, she doesnt feel super charitable all the time u know
She is dignified and mature, so she doesnt throw a fit, I know some women in their 60s that kicked their FIL or MIL out

So not everybody does the right thing

Amma does her duty well, of being a good care giver, but she also nurtures tremendous guilt that she has denied many things to her daughters.

She is not the regular mother either, she has career ambitions too that never materialized. She is not the type to bask in the glory of Appa's achievements

U can even call it "ego" if u like

I thought, it would be a good idea to have  a "strong" woman who is also playing the role of a selfless caregiver

She didnt kick Periappa out because she wanted a Ph D. She continued to care for him as its the right thing to do, but yes, she does grieve for the things she didnt do or did not achieve

Me too Nisha. Had a campaign kick off to orgnize at work then back to back meetings. my niece is visiting from Portland, rushed to pick her up from the mall..a  detour of even one km seems like being stuck in traffick for half an hour when you are in a rush. ran home, made halwa poori and chana for kanya pooja. didnt have change (I usually send prasad to my freinds and five bucks each to their children) sent my husband to the gas station to get change. did pooja, after a mad traesure hunt to look for the aarti book. ate prasad, and then did the rounds of dropping off the prasad to five freinds (they expect at least 8 pooris each. can you imagine especially when I simply hate making pooris!) came back at 9:30 PM and smply crashed!
