GoodMorning India!

Post Marriage mornings are usually the craved one for every we use to see in our masala movies..wife with a cup of steaming bed tea, almost drenched directly from the bathroom manages the pooja ka thal in other hand enters the living room to wake up her last night date "her Husband".
But that looks good in the 21" screen, with changing generation..and fast racing thought process..guys don't expect their wives's to be a lovey Davey pujarin anymore..
Holds the same for my hubby as well..we have quite a bachelor morning!
My maid wakes me up and the tea craving wakes him up :)
Just a very regular morning..we lied on our TV side couch with all the entertainment stuff around..and a cup of tea.
Surfing through the numerous channels offered by the cable industry is equivalent to fishing in the dirtiest pond, till the time I fish one good bandwidth the office bell rings...and the rush hour begins.
As always..I was swimming through the saas bahu sagas that I caught quite a mature lady dancing ; visibly putting in best of her efforts to make it happen on stage in front of millions of audiences!
And for obvious reasons, it called for a discussion between us.
I found the lady to be a daring image of an Indian grandma, unlike my husband who is badly infected by WCS (Western Culture Syndrome) had an opinion of her making a fool of herself as well as Indians.
I could understand, the performance wasn't up to the mark to be presented on stage but to be enjoyed in some birthday party or a baraat. But,I really salute the enthusiasm of the 54 years lady who loves her grand children, which made her measure a 500 Kms to Mumbai from Hyderabad just to make her grand children feel proud.

I hold a strong opinion that we are no less than any Blondie individual be it in mind or body.
If Pamela Anderson could run her way on beaches in bikini and still mesmerize the audiences in her 50s, we have a enthusiastic Pamela in every Indian grandma ;)


  1. Well.I agree to your point

    I think shows like that puts the cosmetic surgeons in US to shame.
    What should some person be worried about.At least some dare to come out without color palette on face.

    I think the world need to understand the strong message from what the 'grandma ' did.

    btw..with pamela anderson..
    If it was not for silicon..she wont be runnin around.

    Hey! nice writeup

  2. Thanks Guys! Very well agreed Sorcerer :)

  3. Nice way of putting across a simple "aam aadmi " thought. I like the casual start and the powerful ending.

    Somewhere I did get lost when you talk of the morning rush and transited to the saas-bahu serials but could catch up towards the end!

    Keep writing!

  4. Nice thought. I rarely watch TV, but it's amazing what that woman did just for the sake of her grandchildren!

  5. The granmas actions are truely commendable .Hats off to her for not worrying about her amateur act and culture but truely doing something for her gran children.

  6. I would still think that comparing cultures is not a good idea though I can say GrandMa's work was commendable but Pam is correct in her ays too.

  7. Thanks for the comment Raj..but if you see this culture difference strikes the discussion between me and my better half..
    so, this ought to come always!


Read the whole story..??
I shall be pleased to know..what you say about it!
