Though It was been 5 years since she left this world, her sweet voice stays in our minds and souls. The morning that started with her Chanting of 'Kousalya supraja Raama' is definitely a soothing one. Her statue being bulit at Tirupathi is apt.
Recently I fell in love with this song sung by her called as 'Madhurastakam' I keep on playing this whenever I feel to listen to pleasant tunes.

Did u see this video of Aish n Abhi being on Oprah show last week, If not... enjoy it, I really really liked the spontaneous, intellectual answers of Abhi that depicted his fun shade too, on the other hand I didnt like the tone and also the artificial smiles or giggles whatever of Aish....

In all I liked Niagara falls, from now I will try to be regular to my blog and hope you are all blogging regularly. You may all get a doubt what happened to this girl on week days ....I have a reason for this too, Now a days my Son is not taking naps during day times and he is getting mischievous day by day.....I could not dare to sit near my lappy when he is around as you already aware of my fear of losing a new keyboard:) next time If at all we are going to buy a lappy, I will force my hubby to take insurance for it.

Of course these type of programs may suit well to other cultures but obviously not to Indian culture. A TV program should entertain where the whole family could sit and enjoy it. Instead of entertaining, these shows may become the root cause for the origin of many negative shades in the younger generations. Because you are offered money, you are tend to expose your whole personal matters in the public, what a shame it is!!!!!! the applause from the audience at every 'true' answer from the participant really sounded disgusting for me.
I gone mad thinking at them how on Earth they could face their family members/ Spouse after this show. These shows may help you in becoming wealthier but you may lose some sensible and precious things in life that cannot be brought back with Money.

Here comes the real mystery, when ever we are ready for a move, we are tend to face some issues like this. When we moved from California to here, Rithvik swallowed a small piece of plastic disposable glass and then we didn't go for emergency but that whole night was terrible for both of us monitoring him for any of the complications(check here).
When I came to US for the first time, I was attacked with a malaria fever just before my travel and need to cancel my tickets, We cancelled my tickets for three times due to my health problems finally I could make it possible by 4th time, after Rithvik was born we three went for vacation to India I got leg sprain just day before to our return journey hmmm.... generally I don't believe this but some incidents are making me to feel tensed.
when we two analysed these situations, my husband said to me, ' you know some thing, when I was a bachelor, my move to every new home brought me some good news, but after marriage it was all upside down' waah waah ....finally he shooted me meee me!!!!!!!!

Look at this video, how talkative this lil girl is, Oh boy!!! this younger generation is too smart, at that age (of course even now :)) I don't know how to respond back to others spontaneously, I really got surprised to the way she is talking.
I guess you already know about our banging neighbour, She created a big mess again and our Apartment manager requested us to vacate our house......hmmm....so by next week we may move to a house in our next block with in the same apartment.

The thought of this new keyboard striked in my DH's mind when he had a very tough time to understand my messages in Yahoo IM. That night he ordered for a new one and he himself got it fixed. My Son who is the reason for this whole story, when I am busy in the kitchen, he climbed on to the dinning table to reach the laptop and got surprised with the new look and his fingers soon got ready to pluck a key, My sixth sense suddenly said to me to 'look at him, look at him....' I peeped through the kitchen arch and shouted at him and I donno what his lil brain thought of me, he left that place giving a pity look at me that says 'chal mommy, ab tho ham ney chod dhiyaa!!!!!'

Few days back I wrote this Lyrics depicting the concept 'Frustrated Lover'. If you didnt get the meaning of it tell me, I will translate it to english.
gamyam teliyani payanam
Tholakari chinukulaa nanu thadimi jadivaana kuripinchaavu
Kalavani manasula kathanamai, thipi kala la migilaavu
Kanthi la nannu cheri pralayaagni vy chelaregaavu
Thadisina kannulua saakshi, nanu veedani gathamainaaavu
Premantey kalala rajyam kaadhu kalathala koluvani thelipaavu
chirunavey teliyani manishi gaa nanu marchaavu.
Meaning of the LyricsNaa Prayanam
gamyam teliyani payanam
Destination of my Journey is uncertain or not yet known
above line is used to say abt the uncertainity of a life journey
Tholakari chinukulaa nanu thadimi jadivaana kuripinchaavu
You being started as a drizzling (of happines) turned to be a heavy heavy rain
Kalavani manasula kathanamai, thipi kala la migilaavu
Remained as a story of the hearts that never meet, remained as a sweet dream
Kanthi la nannu cheri pralayaagni vy chelaregaavu
You being reached into my life as a ray of light turned out to a wild fire
Thadisina kannulua saakshi , nanu veedani gathamainaaavu
You will be forever as my Past leaving my eyes filled with tears as a proof
Premantey kalala rajyam kaadhu kalathala koluvani thelipaavu
Love is heap of troubles but not world of dreams (as i thought)
chirunavvey teliyani manishi gaa nanu marchaavu
You turned me like the one who doesn't know the smiles.

The below song, I love to listen and watch it too. AR Rahman at his best, awesome song, close your eyes, listen to it....If you are married, you may go back to sweet memories.If you are not you may be dreaming of that..Am I right???
ahaaa what can I say about this song, Fell in love with Krishna Vamsi movies after this, beautiful picturisation that comes close to our heart and especially Mani Sharma's music, Jikki's voice are perfect to that song and Lyrics, they are ultimate
One more from the same maker, This one is favourite for many girls.
A hit from MM Keeravani from a hit movie. I like this song background music especially, I used to hum this always in my school days.
Funny start for this song but Lyrics and music are great and soothing.
Coming to a bit old piece, I like the lyrics of this song
These days I could not find songs with good lyrics, I feel bad when I concentrate on the lyrics. Where are such writings now? Bommarillu and Happy days songs are in my recent favourites list, Can you believe this??? or Am I the only one thinking like that, If you know any, lemme know some good ones that were released later.

No, You did not hop to a cooking blog. You are right here on right space, Hope I am still at the corner of your minds, Man!!!!!! dig me back to the center. This was the longest gap I have taken since I started my blog, got busy with my Kid these days.
Coming to the cake, I made this Tres leches(3-milk cake) for my Son's 2nd Birthday. It was a famous Mexican dessert and every one including my Son liked it and thanks for my friend Chaitali for sharing this wonderful recipe.
His Dad bought a car for him as a Birthday present and
I prepared a card with all his favourite characters. He was very much excited as it says his fantasy.
On weekend, we celebrated Kids party at home. These are the cookies I made for the party where Kids as well elders got tempted. Only few left for my photo.
It was a nice feel when Kids achieve their milestones, he was so curious to cut his Birthday cake and been waiting from past one month. He enjoyed the whole day by saying ' appy, appy' clapping his hands and by showing the decoration to every one who visited to wish him.

Coming to the number story, we siblings share same Birthday date but on different months like mine is on March 14th and my Sister's is on September 14th and my younger Sister's(Uncle's daughter )is on January 14th and here comes my Son continuing the path being born on May 14th. A great coincidence, Isn't it!!!!!!
Idea courtesy of this post is Deepa, wife of my Husband's cousin. Lemme count how many R's will be on comments side.

I must thank Varunavi for passing this beautiful tag, where I could reveal Mother in me. As this tag says to write five things I love about being a mother.
- Being pregnant, I loved the feel of his kicks and moves, Though painful sometimes, they are sweet sweet so sweeeet.
- I love to kiss him soon he slips to sleep. My Mom says a big NO to this but I could not resist myself.
- He kisses me while munching the food that are a great treat for his taste buds and then I simply stare at him to not to miss his joyful expression.
- He comes back to hug me though I shout or I am angry at him that's how they steal our hearts with their innocence filled love.
- His cute Lil steps(I should say lil runs, he rarely walks) and eyes search for me saying 'maama, maama' in my absence and cries if he could not see me for a while.
and there are many more, every moment with him is a gifted one and precious. I realised the value of a Mother being a Mother rather than being a daughter. His bubbly words, silly acts, messy arts, quirky habits.....makes our 'life' ride exciting on a happy rail(touch wood). He will be Two by this May. May God give him bright future.
I wish all the best to many of my friends who are to be Moms. You are gonna enjoy a lot. I want to pass this tag to my sister.

Just observe the difference in the faces of audience and judges before and after her performance. At every click of my replay button, I felt it like new. By the expressions of the people over there we can realise how they got mesmerized with her voice.
No words are enough and I am no way eligible even to appreciate you Ms. Susan Boyle.You proved that the age and appearance are nothing before the gifted talent and hard work. All the best from my blog for your future endeavours.

Stmt 1: X (male)and Y (female) got married and had one daughter 'A' being the eldest and two Sons 'B' and 'C'.
No confusion in the above stmt, for X Y A, B,C are children.
Stmt 2: 'A' is married to X's sister's Son and had three children one Son G, and H,I as their daughters.
you can conclude that A's Son is G and A's daughters are H and I.
Stmt 3:Coming to B, he is married to Y's brother's daughter 'U' and had two daughters V and W.
B is X's son, B and U being a couple, (X is Father in law for U).
V and W are their children.
Stmt 4:Coming to C, he is married to A's daughter 'H'.
C is younger Son of X, and he is married to H, where H is daughter of A, where A is daughter of 'X, that means C married his sister's daughter.
Stmt 5:Coming to V, she is married to'G'and'W' is married to 'S'. from the above, discard W and S they are no way related to story.
now let us try to answer my for first question
How is ' H' related to 'U' other than a co sister.
H -- wife of C
U--wife of B
Since B,C are brothers, H,U became co sisters(refer 3,4 stmts)
to relate them other than co sister, (refer stmt 1)
A is sister in law for U because her husband B is brother to A.
(now refer stmt 2)
H is daughter of A. now if you join, H is U 's SIL's daugter in other way, for H, U is her mom's elder brother's wife(mama's wife).
How is 'V' related to 'H' (in two ways)?
V is daughter of B and U. H and U are co sisters so obviously H is dad's brother's wife (pinni) for V. this is one way (stmt 3).
( V is married to his dad's(B's) sister's(A's) Son.)
V being married to G, brother of H, V also becomes maradhalu for H.(stmt2).
Hope I cleared, If I confused you again, I have one more way just imagine 'X' as your Grandpa (dad's side) and Y as your Grand mother hence goes the family tree. If this is also a bad idea, please delete this riddle from your mind and excuse me but don't delete me from your mind :).
WINNERS: I declare Chandana as first winner. Her both answers are accurate. I guess she would have gone mad trying this. She is the first person to answer this. I asked this question to many in turn they warned me to not to come again with such. I appreciate her for giving such a wonderful trial.
Second winner is Mr.Vamsi, my close friend Devi's husband. I asked her this question instead her husband answered it who is totally not familiar with this kind of stuff. I am surprised to know answers from him. Last but not least, I thank for those who gave a try.

I welcome a day where an individual vote is unbiased one dominating regional, caste priorities. Consider, Judge, verify before you vote for a leader. Your vote is worth for building peaceful India that may eradicate bugs like corruption, terrorism, resource crisis that dictated our lives since long.
The below video inspired me to come up with this post. Thanks to my Sister, for letting me know about this video.

X (male)and Y (female) got married and had one daughter 'A' being the eldest and two Sons 'B' and 'C'.
- 'A' is married to X's sister's Son and had three children one Son G, and H,I as their daughters.
- Coming to B, he is married to Y's brother's daughter 'U' and had two daughters V and W.
- Coming to C, he is married to A's daughter 'H'.
- Coming to V, she is married to 'G' and 'W' is married to 'S'.

If I look back, now I realise the value of own house where we plan, imagine, monitor every brick of it. Thus we give life to our dreams, love it as a living entity. We tend to be bonded with it. Many praised our house as it has its own beauty. Its a big, modern, spacious, well designed, huge garden in front. Its very hard to digest the fact that it is no more ours......In that great house, I enjoyed a lot with my graduation mates. As it is very near to my college, all of us had had a good time. We celebrated so many functions. They are just memories sweet memories. I can't get those days back.
Poor me!!! I even don't have a snap of our beautiful house to share, hmm this time no search engine can help me out....Yes, there is no answer for some sensitive and precious matters in this world.

One could laugh heartfully watching his movies, I simply forgot the world around. who could forgot Bhramanandam's character in the movie 'Aha na pellanta'. He is the one to introduce comedians like Bhramanandam, sutthi velu, Sutthi veerabhadra rao.
The film Ananda Bhairavi won many awards, some films that makes us to laugh even by reminding the titles itself Aha na pellanta, Sri vaariki Premalekha, Vivaha bojanambu, chupulu kalasina subhavela, rendu jella Seetha, nalugu sthamabaalata and many more. He passed away at his 50th year. I wish If he was alive, we would have many films for comedy lovers like me.
A director who gives a lot of importance to music,culture and art. Movies like Sankara Bharanam, Siri vennela, Sagara sangamam, swarna kamalam, swathi kiranam, Swayam krushi( oh I notice now, all starting with 's') are precious pieces.
Bapu movies are the essence of naturality of telugu people and he is more in his career as an artist who could simply illustrate the concept by his drawings. I did not see much of his movies unless the master pieces like Muthyala muggu, Pelli pusthakam, Mr.Pellam.
I enjoyed almost all movies came out from this maker like Nuvve kavali, Nuvvu naaku nachaav,Manmadhudu, Malleswari. Among these all Manmadhudu and Nuvvu naaku nachaav are my all time favourites, very healthy comedy.
A director who could depict next door scenes on to the screen and leads the film with naturality. A big NO for violence in his movies.Dollar dreams resulted him with an award as the best debutant director.His later takes like Anand, Godavari( a bit lengthy), Happy days( sure we all loved it), I am eagerly looking forward for his movies.
Known for his suceess like Nuvve nuvve, Athadu. He is more as dialogue writer, with unique dialogues that shoots the target, he is the best at it.
A director cum writer, capable of making movies with a wide variety of sets and screen play , proving himself technically the best, Ramayanam( with the kids), Choodalani vundhi, Manoharam, Okkadu, Arjun are great picks.
Ram Gopal Varma Owns a typical way in directing movies. Shiva, Kshana kshanam, Rangeela, Anaganga oka roju are his well known movies in telugu.
Krishna Vamsi One of my favourite directors, I love the way he captures culture, joint families in his films. Murari, Ninne pelladtha are the best examples. His movies are for sure useful to show our next generation how a south Indian marraige would be. On the other, Samudram, Khadgam are also his biggest hits while Anthapuram and Chandamama bagged Nandi awards. I felt bad watching his recent movie Sasi rekha parinayam, as I could not digest the usage of abusive language.
Starting from Badri he bagged many hits like Idiot, Amma naana O Tamil ammayi, Pokiri being his biggest hit, stood as the only film in 75 years of Telugu Industry to be screened for more than 500 days. His films are message oriented but I feel disappointed to observe Woman abuse, violence in most of his films.
K.Raghavendhra rao He made many hits and he is the one responsible for the careers of actress' like Radha, Radhika, Ramya Krishna, Sri devi. Who may not love the picturisation of his film Jagadekaveerudu Atilokasundari. Special in making deviotional films too.Pelli sandhadi won him Nandi award for his best choreography. I personally feel a bit irritating watching his songs. Hope you got my point.
A hit pair Rajendra Prasad and this director made us to enjoy the movies like Rajendhrudu Gajendhrudu, Maaya lodu and some more movies I would love to recollect are Shubalagnam, Yama leela, Yegirey Pavuram, Pellam oorellithe etc. He used to make a good films but after pellam oorelithe movie I didnt find any such qualitative from him.
Director with filmy background introduced by Raghavendhra rao. I liked the films such as Simhadri, Sye,Vikramarkudu.
had a great power who could give the hits for leading stars. Tagore,Aadi, Dil, Krishna are from his acount.
Teja The only films I liked were Chitram and Nuvvu nenu. Now if I watch again, sure I may not like them, they are just 'hall time' favourites but not 'all time'. Jayam, a dissappointment, Dhairyam( one with Mahesh babu) a disaster, and after Keka movie review itself, he was completely out of my mind.
Also I would love to give a note for the films from the directors such as Mani Ratnam's Geethanjali(I guess thats the only film he directed in telugu, he is more into Tamil), SJ Surya's Kushi, Kodi Ramakrishna's Ammoru, EVV's Appula apparao,Vamsi's April1 vidudhala, Neelakanta's Missamma, Karunakar's Tholi prema, Bhaskar's Bommarillu, Arya from Sukumar, Aithy from Chandrasekhar.
First I started with few directors and now If I scroll up OMG, a huge list
and I am sure that I skipped many.....such a well built is our Telugu film industry....such a brilliant minds it owns.....hats off to the makers who presented us with an ever lasting entertainment.
Note: The hirerachy of listing the directors is just according to my favourite choice.
One more regarding this post is, for every post, before I hit 'publish' button I used to check spellings but this time, my poor spell check is not responding, may be exceeded its mistakes limit :)

I already posted in my blog about my banging neighbour (Click on it if you wanna read) she complained again, this time as per my advice, my apartment manager arranged a meeting including our couple, neighbour and herself. The problem is, my American neighbour is having disturbance of peace because of our kid.
My apartment manager being an American supported her, saying
---An American mother puts her kid to bed by 6pm where as an Indian mother doesn't...
---They were too aware of children and grand children but didn't observe this kind of tempo .
---They opine that we do not train the kids properly.
we argued in this way
---As a kid/children, we too used to go to bed early but not as early as 6pm, this generation kids' are different.
---No two kids are of same, they behave entirely different.
--- It will take some time to understand for kids, at least they must be of 2.5 yrs to realise what to do and what not to do.
I agree that my kid is bit active but he is as same as other Indian kids, raising kids varies with different cultures. I never encourage him to disturb others but at the same time I cant destruct his activities, I cant restrict him by keeping no entry zones. May be because they don't have much spice in their food, their kids' stay calm but that doesn't possible for a Indian kid. I love to see my kid playing all the time exploring new. I simply love to see him as an energetic busy beeeeeeee.
Pour your ideas and correct me if I am wrong.

We see every where in our country the slogans "Respect Woman" but they are limited to display boards just.....recent Mangalore pub happening is a live evil act of sick people in this society. Ram Sena group (few people) attacked a pub in Mangalore last weekend and assaulted women for violating Hindu culture. Women there were physically abused, slapped by men hmmm... being an woman, I feel shy to present this video.
If the Ram Sena gang feel that they are protecting Hindu culture by doing this, does our culture say to abuse girls in such a bad way?? going to a pub,taking drinks is their personal choice, that's the way they wanted to enjoy their life. I donno what bothers them, who gave the right to touch them? Why the women are supposed to bear these tortures, when will this discrimination disappears?? never an end to this insane!!! The people who are involved in this must be punished severely like the one AP government did to the guys who attacked the girls with acid in Warangal.
A survey says "Every hour, 18 women face abuse in India" I cannot imagine the number what it would be if it is surveyed throughout the world. I mean, not only in India, in every country this happens .....no place is safer to woman in this big world.
