If i were a baby again...............

Ippo mattum grown up aatum irukenaanu kelvilaam kekapdaathu..Intha titlea neria blogla post paathen. So here's me with my kaantreebushan.

Kutti gils romba chamathunu kelvi. Adhigamaa yaraiyum paduthinathu illyaam. Ithu vaangi thaa athu vaangi thaanu imsa panathukuda kedayathaam. But sila vishyams kampalsary..like the rounds on cycle before my dad leaves for office. Everyday, before leaving for office on his Hercules cycle, he had to take me around our street for some rounds. Then only then the relieving order will be released from my checkpost :)

Whenever my dad goes for shopping for groceries, he used to carry me. And the shopkeeper was someone whom we had known for decades it seems, the owner being a very good friend of my grandpa. Whenever i goto that shop the owner used to give dry fruits in a pottalam and on the way back me and my dad both used to feed the pigeons. Needless to say i was a pampered child :) My dad never allowed me to walk and always carried me wherever he took me :) Infact i took more time than normal kids to walk properly :) nadakka vitta thaana :)

My mom always had a fancy for "Jibba" as the ideal dress for me (which continues to this date). She used to dress me up in pyjama jibba and in most of my baby snaps you can see me in this costume. My cousins used to tease, that i look like sonpapdi kaaran in that dress :)

I hated goodbyes. Whenever any guests came to our house i used to guard the doorstep with one kuchi not allowing them to leave. My paati always ensured my attention was elsewhere whenever she left. Illaati kuchiyaalaye adi uzhum. See how chamathu i am :D

I was least fond of toys and the only toy which held my interest were guns. Leo toys held sway at that time and the only ever toy which i remember asking my dad was the machine gun which made all those weird noises :) i never got one and my dad always remembered that.

Mahabaratham vantha timela broomstick kuchisla villu ambu senju enga veetu EB meter boardla Bulls eye varanju vachu i used to practice my archery skills :D Paathi thodappam ipdiye gaali pannathukaga..thodapathala udha vangatha kurai thaan.

Enga areala..night timela red color thuni porthi tricyclea Kulfi varum. Tingu tingu nu mani sound ketalay velila odipoiduven. But my parents were very strict. "kanda thannila senjirupanga" solli they never used to get me that. Banglore poi naan saapta first ice Kulfi thaan :D kekka aal ilaya.. poga vara saapatu item kulfi thaan :)


WOW..i never knew i remembered all this till i wrote this post :D ipdiye pona poorva jenma nyabgamlaam kooda vantirum nenakren. So me the istooppu here.

Hey pampered boy, what a rocking site you got! :-) I am hopeless at Tamil but since you write in "Tinglish" it was awesome! Childhood days are days of innocence and your post reiterates that. I loved the part about you not allowing anyone to leave! :-)

Gils, Somewhere we have a common wavelength. I was thinking of writing something on very similar lines and you have written it. I'll anyway write it sometime. neengal nandraaga ezhudi irukkireergal.

A lot of early memories are secondary memories. The earliest I remember anything is 1 incident from my 1st std. Then blank for another year or two before a memory recall. Memories told and retold by near and dears, but usually never exaggerated too much.
