    hello here is my first one...!

    The toothless grin….
    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    The tousled curly hair made it right up to her dimples. She had that impish look. It was always fun and interesting to watch her.
    <o:p></o:p>
    She loved to chatter. Quite a few neighbours came in to `listen’ to her chatter. Sometimes she was silent, day dreaming? About what? we wondered.
    <o:p></o:p>
    While noodles and dosas were her favourite she had an on sweets be it rasagollas or mysorepak. She often tiptoed to the shelf and popped in a sweet or two.
    <o:p></o:p>
    An independent streak she did possess especially when she went to the toilet. She would bolt the door from inside and have us worrying. Was she safe? Hope she will not slip. What if the water is too hot or chill.. I have to ask the carpenter to fix a hook on the bathroom door so that we can open it from outside lest she has some trouble. That’s our worry I guess. She never did have any of these doubts and wiped her feet with a special towel.


    She loved a nice outing in the car. She will demand a window seat anywhere just to watch the passers by or the vehicles or trees or birds. Boy, does she have an interest in clothes. Colours enhanced her looks. She loved red and green and blue. Those simple stripes, grey or sober shades were not for her. So red it was for her birthday.
    <o:p></o:p>
    A nice little outing was planned where we invited friends and relatives for an eat out at a new upcoming restaurant. The restaurant was informed of our arrival as we were a little more than a dozen. Three tables were put together to make it a gala dinner.
    <o:p></o:p>
    The lights went out, and out came the waiter with a huge cake and brightly lit candles. You must have seen the look on her face. Wow she did enjoy every second. There was the candle blowing. The chorus singing, happy birthday to you. From the look of her face and the toothless grin, we could make out she did not expect this huge celebration. The happiness got contagious that everyone started talking animatedly and she loved every minute. . The dinner served. She took the cauliflower manchuri with a toothpick and stylishly ate it. The ice cream came next. With the others getting on with dinner, she was fast enough to make a grab at the nearest one. She could not eat it as fast as she wanted to. Some spilled on to her dress but was she aware?. She was so adorable that all of us have planned to go out for her birthday every year.
    <o:p></o:p>
    Some difference in age you might say. Cute dimples and toothless grins, great outings and colourful dress, sweet tooth and adventurous streak, mama mine is like a two year old grand daughter …!

    முதல் முதல் என்று சொலீ
    மனதில் முதல் இடத்தை பிடித்த
    என் நண்பி சத்யா
    இது உணரும் ஆச்சர்யம் இல்லை
    உங்களுக்கு ஏக பட்ட
    தலேன்ட் இருஉகு
    இன்னும் நெறைய இது மாதிரி
    எயுத வேண்டும்
    என்று அன்புடன் வேண்டி கொள்கேரன்
    நன்றி நின் தாய் கு தான் !

    Nice blog, Sathya!
    when my children gave their great grand mother (my grandma) a gift on her birthday, she was bleaming with joy saying that no one celebrated hers as such.
    Your blog brought those memories back.
