    You must be right Kelly. Desi Moms are a universal phenomenon, I think. Regardless of where we live geographically, we are all the same. If I were mathematically inclined, I would try to come up with a formula for Desi moms but unlucky for you all, I skipped school the days they taught Math. :)

    Dear Sri Uncle,
    Your words simply rocked me. I don't know what to say except 'thank you'. :bowdown So happy I was at reading your comment that I even decided to overlook your 'elephant' reference. I may have a very slight resemblance to one Uncle but did you have to say it loud in a public forum? :biggrin2:

    The story of the South Indian wife hit just a little too close to home for my comfort. Rajinikanth obsession, K.Srikanth as the most loved cricketer, singing with cousins......spooky to find myself fitting so neatly into a generalization.

    I will be sure to stick around atleast for a little while this time Uncle. :) Thanks again for that wonderful welcome.

    Hey meenu,

    A hearty welcome back:) now make sure that you stay here.we missed your cheerful presence here A LOT.

    Hmm, I just returned from a trip back home and my daughter had a LOT to say on how I had stuck to the desi mom image while our Desh had actually changed.

    Ha! Those mother daughter dos and don't dos........ I could write volumes on that.:)

    Dea r Desi Mom, sorry Meena,

    HAHA. what a lovely post this is, right from the top of yr head, going right in my head too. Well i am a desi pop, i agree with all that, that no ciggies liquor, but that is for the child, while it is good for me.HAHA

    But being in america , one is more paranoid for things are so open there, unlike here, but with the coming of internet, well everything is known here, and i guess there is nothing desi about being concerned about the welfare of kids, specially daughters. And this lecture goes on in evfery house.HAHA

    superb one really, and glad to have u back after a long long time, do come more often, ther eis fun element with u around.

    Regards

    kamal
