Family calling...

Deeps photo tag was so cute, UMMON's so very touching...Now here is my version of the photo tag.

It is June, the month when I start getting this urge, this irresistive pull towards by home town. June, the month of rains, that time of the month when the fields are lush and green, when towns and cities get a new lease of life, cleaned and washed by rains...when the smell of wet earth gives me this queer joy that is secondary only to being at home...

And bringing back these memories is this picture...taken two years back at my husband's hometown, M....., a quiet village really but the one place that my kids love to go(other than my mom's house ofcourse), every year, to see the same sights, gaze at tall coconut trees, poke jackfruits hanging from short trees, look at the ponds and try counting the lotus floating on the murky waters, kill umpteen insects...go behind the cow and count the hens...followed, monitored and even encouraged by their two most lovable grand moms.


My mother-in-law (she is the shorter of the two in blue saree) and her sister(who lives there, she has no kids and but loves kids and is a child (at heart) herself)with my two...

And I wish it will be August soon and I can see them both, hug them and talk to them of things that don't matter at all in the big scheme of things, but still talk to feel loved, to be a part of family, to be near mother nature, to see my kids and my husband happy and carefree...

Oh, your daughter is SO cute! I loved the picture, it brought back so many lovely memories. I used to go to Kerala every summer for my vacations, and have the fondest memories of the place. Still, it's just not the same when I go there as an adult, even if it is as beautiful as ever.

sindhu said...

Kamini:Homoured by your visit, I am agreat fan of your blogs. I suppose it is people who make any place special...maybe that special folks are not there and that is why it has lost its charm and then when we grow we look at the world with different set of glasses...too
A:For you, I am back...
