Unpredictable Wonders.....

If I could wish for something right now, I would wish to be in school. No, not my childhood days school, but the school I used to work in earlier with special children. Today is the school annual day and I am here, wondering how they are doing. Before I got married I made a pact with myself that I would not miss the annual day, no matter where I was or what I was doing. It's not even a year and I already broke that pact.... I feel like a traitor. It's not like the programs are awesome or the plays perfect, its just that after months and months of practice, you see them performing on stage and you know that this is as far as you could go. Even a year of practice won't be able to make much of a difference. But what makes it all worthwhile, is the unpredictable stuff that these kids come out with. It's all so funny... and that's what we remember in the years to come.

Right now they must be in the midst of chaos and still loving it all. I was there last annual day... and it was exhilarating. Just making the whole thing work while maintaining your sanity at the same time.... there's nothing like that. I mean the kids love to perform and stuff, but they don't understand the whole stage thing. For instance, there was this peacock dance we had, so we get the kid all ready in her peacock colour green (one piece) suit and the head gear and the magnificent tail is all attachedand she is all ready for her dance which starts in a few minutes... and we are waiting to position her on stage, when she turns and says I want to go to the bathroom. You should have seen the look on all of our faces.... Then once an autistic boy just jumped off the stage and walked away during his show... stuff like that happens all the time.

I gotta wait till at least 9pm to call them up (the school) and find out how it went....

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…
