Daily Reflections

The 7th decade


She is the 13th child in a family of 18, and 9th in the eleven that survived and she turns 70 today…. The youngest daughter and one of the prettiest, a movie buff who created a ruckus if the movie moved to another town without her seeing it, indulgent parents, a great childhood and then a late marriage. My beautiful mother has had an interesting life, and she has remained innocent and created a world around herself. Yes, there are some strong beliefs that she has and I fight with her many days … But Mom is meant to be fought with. She loves the color green and nearly all her sarees are some shade of green :), loves sesame oil, loves to cook and both of us have separate space in our stomachs for tea.

As she turns 70, I wish her peace and happiness, progress along her personal actualisation and learnings from this life, ofcourse good health and I really wish she enjoys every day. Here’s what I wrote last week A special love.

A photo blog to celebrate Vedavalli’s special day –

The Varadaraja Perumal temple in Tirunelveli. Amma’s house was three houses away. My grandparents would just step out of the house and see the Aarti everyday 🙂

Some assorted pictures of Mom with flowers… She loves flowers and it’s an effort to keep her from plucking them :):)
