Life’s Transitions: the path travelled with my MOM!

One more for the “blast from the past” series. Initially I had written the following dedication on April 18th, 2009. Adding it here to my revived and worthwhile collection.

Secured in a place where there is nothing but the angel’s love and surrounded with the life saving fluids which her hormones secreted just for me, I realized why the Supreme distinctly designated her as an angel when the quest was put forth…

There were no expectations for the days to dawn as each and every nano-second was filled with her love and nothing else but her love…. She grew me up by dedicating her life to my growth… 

I salute my angel for what I am now and thank her for the ten month magic charm!!!

Nothing to ponder about, except the toys scattered throughout the living room…

Nothing to worry about, except the voices around…

Nothing to bother about, except my own hours of sleep…

Nothing to learn much, except the tactic to attract the crowd…

Nothing to think about, except the change of outfit every now and then…

I salute my angel for what I am now and thank her for the ten month magic charm!!!

Clutching my mother’s hand, keeping small foot steps ahead, I feared to walk into the Play school. After a two hour long play with the other kids, I awaited my mom’s voice, feeling her love right from the hanky pinned to my tops to the water that is kept exclusively just for me. The whole world was with me when I got the glimpse of her presence to take me back home….. 

First digital imprint experience on a T-shirt when I was 9 yrs young… and the only caption that came to my mind when questioned about a tag-line! The t-shirt exists, and is serving a memoir when I share the experience with my child!

The tunnel of life was lit with a candle of light when I stepped into the early days of school-hood. When the ladder to climb became too long I once again had to depend on my mom’s love and care for she encouragingly stood besides me whenever required and (un)asked for. The circle of friends began to take a larger diameter as I grew up. The years in school passed on with the clouds tagged with the flavors of good & not-so-good teachers, friend’s crew, home work, assignment sheets, attendance track, examination blues, cultural activities, excursions, cafeteria chit chats, nature related talks & discussions during lab (practical science) hours and the liveliness in all our tears on the day of the farewell. I again came under my mom’s cocoon during the change of school and atmosphere, luckily which happened only once in my school-life. Her insulation was once again extended to me during the initial stage of adolescence. The zest that she inculcated in me to adapt to the changes…

The days at home again… between the pass out from school and entry to college, my loneliness was filled with the angel’s care and support. No other sibling, hence the only child attention was on top of the world without any compliants. The grasp was too strong that she became my sole friend when I was filled with grief due to the decimal point miss at the IIT-JEE. The strength that she fostered in me still stays green in my grey area…

My first step inside the big campus was kept with a childish and still school-behavior. New friends, the casual attitude of few professors, mismanagement from the top-level, strikes, seminars & symposiums, paper presentation group works, the extraordinary birthday blast & celebrations, long walk from the bus stop to the campus, delayed returns to home, outing with the close buddies, long telephonic conversations and silly fights, tug of war between different groups during decision making, the evergreen campus walks together as a group, cafeteria laughs and snacks, last bench bits & tits, professional commenting, initiatives to form an association of students, train & bus journeys to other colleges, the hugs and kisses, rakhi day absenteeism by the boys group, the mass enjoyment with achievement in its own terms went on for four long years – each of them so very diverse in activities and unique… I not only treasure but shore-up my mom’s love & support when it came to one of my ever-lasting and life time goal and achievement during college days. It was the day when my paper got selected for a live presentation @ IIT-Delhi… yes, each and every step that I kept at IIT-Delhi, was not mine, but my angel’s… 

I salute my angel for what I am now and thank her for the ten month magic charm!!!

The platform to being mature was laid when I stepped into my professional life. How could this stage be possible without her love & support….? 

How could I ever get the support to sustain my energy after a tiresome night shift if not for you MAA?? 

How could I ever imagine a night at office without your love-filled dinner box for me?? 

How could I pull on each night if not for the calls that you make just to ask how the day is going??

How could my day dawn at office without your energetic “good morning” and your wait at the door step to receive me every morning??

How could I ever think of working against my biological clock if not for your love and support all the time till now right from the second you carried me in your womb??

A life’s journey 1986 – 2009 captured above… turning back from 2020 and yet going strong with an unconditional LOVE and extraordinary SUPPORT from my MOM (Malathy Varadharajan)!

A passionate young woman who has just realized her Iconic Independence, truly by leading a life, on her own – which she has only fantasized in her dreams all through these years, before stepping into a challenging role of this kind (you will get to know what this journey has been!). I have wanted to prove myself, not just in the cyber space, but the treasure-filled stage of life as well. Ask me to whom I wanted to prove? It was just to myself and not to anyone else. I for one slide into the shoes offered to me on a daily basis by the All-Pervasive! Whatever that might be! I also want to be an active player all through the blissful years that is showered and the ones that I am yet to be presented with! I am full of life and values and wish to re-create the meaning of this ‘journey undertaken’ – not just through the mere survival and existence, but by the richness of resilient thoughts to LIVE and THRIVE every moment that flashes by!
