Following kolaveri, Varun has moved to yet another ‘mokka piece’ (borrowed vocabulary, so pls excuse) by Danush.. The song embed is at the end of this post..
Varun: amma, avan yen maa appidi cholraan? (ma, why is he saying that?)
Me: Eppadi? Yaaru? (who?)
Varun: andha anna onnun therille cholraan? (that anna says he can’t see?)
Me: Ummm.. avanukku kannu theriyalle. paavam. adhaan. (he’s blind. sad. that is why!)
Varun: Yen therille? (why?)
Me to myself: Vidya, wrong route.. take diversion.
Me to Varun: auto-man, will you take me to Mylapore?
The anna on the other had, has invested some ‘cricket-coaching’ time in learning to sing the song with a tweak to a line like this:
Free-a irukkum bodhu ‘dash-u’ illaye
Pidicha-‘dash-u’ ippo freeya illaye..
Me: What ‘dash-u’ da?
Vyas: Amma, it seems that it is a bad word..
Me: Oh! Who told you?
Vyas: XYZ of 5th std. He comes for the cricket coaching.
The dad religiously wakes up at 5.20 AM, makes bournvita, gets his son ready and drops him for the coaching class at 5.50 AM. Sonny is showing tremendous signs of learning. Like the one above!!
