An Ice cream from the spring summer sky

In a city where four seasons can be summed up into a year long summer,its not surprising to see people buying soft drinks to quench the eternal thirst. But the sheer amount of bottles and cans staring at you from the shop shelves can give you a panic attack. But my mom had different reasons for the long gaze she shot at the colourful drinks the other day. Before delivering the verdict, She carefully examined the difference in prices, offers, and calculated the Indian rupees equivalent for its value . At the end all she picked up was just plain water!

Apart from increasing waistline and restricted single habits, living with mom has its own perks. For instance, she hand feeds me breakfast at times. This is her way of making me eat more idllies and dosas, that are godsend to make me healthier. ' You are always busy with computer and dont eat properly' she says, while all I do in the morning is facebook updates. She peeks right into the monitor and goes, 'why is this girl posing like this?' 'why is he commenting dog sound?' (apparently she thinks lol is dog sound!).

To know how child like my mom, all you have to do is buy her 1$ ice-cream cone. Before she could finish, It would drip all over her hand and saree. And she would be smiling at me with a cream filled mouth, owning herself shamelessly. Whenever she is in Singapore with me, she is not a dutiful wife, mother or mother in law. She is just a girl with endless amazement for life. And I thank all that exists above the spring summer sky for making the me the reason for this.

I think the choices that modern life presents us could be as daunting as the variety of soft drinks. And we need to make decisions like my mom. By buying exactly what we need and owning the happiness the 1$ ice-cream cone can provide us, shamelessly!
