Day 16 : GRANDMA!! Lite Teesuko!!


For all the guys who didn't get the title, "LITE TEESUKO!!" translates to "LITE LE YAAR" also, "TAKE IT EASY!!"

Lite Teesuko : This is something I've been hearing from my first year of Engineering. My lecturers too use it!! WOW!! Their context is a little different though. You go to them in a crisis and ask them to help you out, they say its too late and so..."lite teesuko"!! Now its the mantra I chant the most. All of us doing our engineering or who have already done it down here, chant it. Its the BEST lesson in LIFE my Engineering course could offer to me, for sure (I was always that kind though, I just found the right words here, THE MANTRA)!! And I'm sure there thousands more who would love to agree with me. What say folks??

Back to Granny tales... Think about this... Can you, at once, recollect a situation in life when you've been completely "helpless"?? I can, very quickly!! All the nasty encounters with my Grandfolks!! I mean its hard to get a few things across the table to my folks and these people are their folks!! Its IMPOSSIBLE!! There are these times when they are completely not okay with a few things we do. Like food habits, the times we choose to go to bed, the times we go out... and blah blah blah... And then there are times when they totally disapprove a few things we do... and then take-off time!! If my folks yelled at me, I can give it back to them, right back, and even convince them on the complete opposite of their initial assumptions!! Its the easiest things I can do now-a-days!! :P

But when its the Grander ones we are encountered by... naah, its not so easy!! I'm only referring to Grandmoms here. Grandpas are completely cool!! They don't give a damn as long as you don't come in their way. See!! They're MEN too!! :P But when Grandmas are throwing hot shots at you, there's not much at least "I" can do!! :( I've completely grown past the stage where it would offend me... I really don't bother myself with these warmer times now. Coming from Hyderabad, Hyderabad main hum aisich hai yaaron...sab kucch hum full lite lete yaaron... koi karein agar G mein dum toh...Dil pe mat lo... :P

On the contrary, of late, I've taught my Grandma a new mantra recently... THE "LITE TEESUKO" way of life!! My folks already know it pretty well and are doing great with it so far!! So, everytime there are signs of the steam building up... sploosh... "LITE TEESUKO!!" comes to my rescue. They still do get past it once in a while. But that's unavoidable I guess. So, all of you, teach the Gen-W the "LITE TEESUKO" way of life. It works great for me (only for short periods of time though!! but still, comes in very handy at times..:) )

And if anyone chooses to disagree on anything I've said, then again, "LITE TEESUKO"!!! :P No no... just go on... I'm always listening... I'm dying to hear!! :P

See you when I see you...

P.S. Listener discretion is advised for listening to the song. Its something from Hyderabad Blues, a Kukunoor movie. Loads of gaalis in there!! Also, I caught my first lizard today, a baby lizard (it was some 3/4th inch long). And also, Harry and I played with a centipede first thing after I woke up this morning!! It had 40 legs, stupid thing was slipping along the ceramic floor and thinking it was going somewhere!!

@Richa : hehe!! Chill!! I just left the lizard in a plant outside and said to it, "Welcome to the real world. It sucks!!" :P

@Divz : you better be!! :P Thanks anyway.. :)

@Nik : Po bey!! Just because you can't seem to get your hands on one!! I told myself, "Go PK!! If you think you're going to catch a snake someday then it is as true as you being able to catch the lizard today... and TADAA... I dit it with lots of care (had Irwin on my mind mate)"

Relax you guys... there's nothing GROSS about lizards... GOD made made them just as he made you and me... lizards are so beautiful to see... and so YUCK to touch!! :P No. They're good. See you when I see you...:)

@Divz (on day 14...) : LOL!!! Relationships... PK... naah. Not that far yet. I'd rather go when I'm READY to go, I'm no despo!! So, its justified I didn't mess around with the serious side of relationships!! :)

And about the calls... that's exactly what I said... he's despo in the beginning and then lets it go completely!! Chiii!! I'd never do that!! If its meant to be, so be it. No beginning, no end, no Sunday, no holiday... its always there. And its not always about who calls, but most of the times, that's what it is!! :P

Fine, anyway, you and I will also "LITE TEESUKO" ;), I don't know what it is yet and you say you know it sucks. Okie Dokie!!

See you when I see you.. :)
