A conversation of cosmic importance

September 2, 2010

Yesterday: 5:30 AM IST; 5:00 PM Pacific Time Zone:

Son: Hi amma, good morning; how are you?

Mom: Am good; today is Gokulashtami. I hope you know that?

Son: What exactly is it amma?

Mom: My dear useless son; it is Lord Krishna’s birthday.

(Well, she said it in a slightly different way in Thamizh, but we will ignore it as it not relevant to the post)

Son: Ooho, I get it. Is this the one in which we chalk out the footprints of Krishna into the home?

Mom: Finally!! Yes. It is the same one. By the way, I have something to tell you.

(The son immediately knew what it was going to be about; but still waited for his mom to pontificate)

Son: What is it amma?

Mom: Remember that your sister worked for a month at that company —-?

Son: Yeah, I do. What about it?

Mom: At that company, she had a colleague/friend who she thought would be a perfect match for you; and you know what? I actually spoke to that girl about it yesterday.

Son: AMMA!!!!!! You cannot just call somebody and ask them like that? I told you not to do anything about this for now. This is not right. How can you talk to somebody just like-

(Son 1: Mom 0)

Mom (interrupting): Da, listen to me. She said that she is not currently interested in marriage but she also said that she would talk to her parents about it. I also told her that you were in no particular hurry as well. So, Let us see if she gets back.

Son: But how can you do this amma? Can’t a man live in p-

(Son 2: Mom 0)

Mom (interrupting again): Your sister is sending you a photo of her as we speak.

Son: But seriously amma, you should not pull such stunts in the future. There has to be a protocol to do such things; you sound like one of those TV serial mothers.

(Son 3: Mom 0)

(The mail arrives; the son blinks at the screen for a few seconds…………….)

Son: Amma……….

Mom: yeah?

Son: BTW amma………err…… What is her name?


Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to believe that the “sheepish/foolish/embarrassed” tone in my voice did not travel the 8800 miles through the phone lines.

Final score: Son 0: Mom 100000000000000000000!!!!

PS: Listening to this now.
