Seething with rage and teary eyed, I held out a chit to my mom. On it was written: “I Love You. Sajju”! This was when I was 7 or 8 maybe! Just before our summer vacations began. The anger hit a new peak when my mom laughed so much that she was in tears and then said it was OK to be loved! The flame must have died very soon for I do not remember seeing Sajju when I was back after the holidays..
A couple of weeks back, Vyas shared a secret which brought back old memories. Including the one above.
Vyas: Amma, I want to tell you something. In your ears.
Me: Oh sure. What is it?
Vyas: Come closer. Promise not to tell appa.
Me: Ummm.. tell me first:-)
Vyas: Sayuj loves Sanjana! (covers his mouth with his tiny hand and giggles)
Me: Really? Good. So?
Vyas: Says he will marry her!
Me: Oh? So soon?
Vyas: Yessu (a stressed ‘yes’ that is!). But Sailesh also loves Sanjana.
Me: (love triangle already?!!) Oh, good. It is nice to love. You must love everyone.
Vyas: You don’t understand. It is not that love (its hush hush conversation still..).
Me: To love, is to like someone dear. I love you. Appa loves you. You love Varun pappa. Keshu loves you. Aashi loves you. I love your friends.. Understand?
Vyas. No, but Apramey says it is not that love. This is different. Something silly.
Me: Yeah, if you say so!
To Vyas:Kanna, I did not tell appa. I just blogged for everyone to read. Promise.
Merry Christmas to you all!!
