The 'Why' people and Nam...hilarious encounters.

You know how people are always on your case in a small town... if you are not married they keep wanting to know why, and after you get married if you happen to be a few months late in sporting a protruding belly, they want to know why again. It's the small town way of life... and me and my sister (Nam) are pretty used to it. My sister takes it up a notch by having fun at these people's expense... read this conversation she had recently with an acquaintance.

Acq: Howz life? Any good news?

Nam: Good. Yeah, my cousin is getting married.

Acq: I asked with you

Nam: Oh I already got married. How's your wife?

Acq: We are waiting. Her due date is on April 1st.

Nam: oooooh nice!! congrats!

Acq: When will you say?

Nam: I just said congrats

Acq: Thank you... so, when should I say congrats?

Nam: Your wife, you can say anytime na...

She sent me this chat transcript and I found it hilarious... almost reminded me of Harvey Specter. He does this too, deliberately misunderstands to have a good laugh.

Next time someone from the small town asks such things .say " yes you cannot have a stiffy anymore . It is banned by the state government as some groups think it is against their religion "

:) so far so good. i sure am glad people do seem to be having conversations.. All I get to see these days is people avoiding real ones and quite content with virtual chats. You know what i mean where words seem to flow from fingers instead of the mouth...

Santhi Nilayam, School for the Mentally Challenged...

After a long long time, I visited the special school I used to work in, and the kids have all grown up...tiny tots now taller than me and sprouting facial hair!!! I was flummoxed... gosh, time changes everyone and everything. Wonder what changes they saw in me... anyway, I was just happy to be backthere. Went early to catch sight of that yellow school bus turning the corner and to watch all the kids tumbling out. While I was working there, that yellow bus turning the corner always marked the start of an exciting day. Right from the moment the kids hit the ground, the fun starts... that place will always be shrouded in hues of warm sunshine in my memory, it is a great place to be.  On the way to school, came across a few students... The special school, Santhi Nilayam (means Abode of Peace)  Great place...  The school bus and the kids... The assembly itself is heartwarming, a kid recites the prayers and the others repeat after him, in their characteristic sounds and half utterances.  T…

The Ten Commandments of Christmas

Last Sunday in church, leaflets with the following 'Christmas Ten Commandments' were handed out and the parish priest Fr. Joe Andrews discussed them with the congregation.   You shall not leave 'Christ' out of Christmas, making it 'Xmas'. Christ is the reason for the season.You shall prepare your soul for Christmas. Spend not so much on gifts that your soul is forgotten (a good confession is a nice way to prepare your hear for Christmas)You shall not let Santa Claus replace Christ, thus robbing the day of its spiritual reality. (Prepare yourself with prayer and the Word of God.)You shall not neglect your church. Its services highlight the true meaning of the season. You shall not neglect the needy. Share they blessings with the many who will go hungry and cold unless you are generous.You shall not neglect thy family during this season. You shall not forget the elderly and those who are lonely at Christmas time.You shall not value gifts received by their cost. E…

Grandma's Caramel Cake...

Everybody in my family loves this cake, its my grandmother's recipe and it can be tweaked during the holiday season to form a delicious Christmas fruit cake. The ingredients are simple to remember, you just need equal  quantities of flour, sugar and butter and the cake is guaranteed to come out great. Ingredients 400 grams maida or all purpose flour
400 grams sugar
400 grams butter
8 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
dried fruits and nuts 
brandy or rum (optional)
I've taken 400 grams of butter, sugar and flour cause I wanted to make a large cake for Christmas. You can scale the quantities down to half and make a medium sized cake. Let's start with caramelizing the sugar, from the 400 grams of sugar that you have set aside for this cake, take bout a quarter of that (100 grams) and start heating it in a dry vessel. I usually drop in another handful (bout 50 gms) of sugar to get more of the gooey caramel when I plan on adding b…
