Happy birthday Appa !

Dearest Appa, Its your 79th birthday and we celebrated it by eating your favourite “bitter gourd” (karela) sambar and some chocolates. Amma refused to eat the “Jimikand subzi” that she had made and ate the rice with her favourite “mixture”. I have to tell you that she has […]

A life well lived

Dear Appa, Today is six years since you left and this year I want to remember how you lived your life. Here’s the note I sent to everyone on Dec 12, 2008…. It is true, you lived well because you met all your personal goals …sure there were […]

Random memories

Dear Appa, Yesterday we were remembering you .. Amma made the Deepawali Marunthu using the powder that you had made so many years back. It has turned out to be yum as always, just without the dollops of ghee that Amma used earlier :). She is miffed about […]
