Gnabagam Varuthae.....

I love to sing, (no matter how horrible it sounds) or listen to songs, esp., while doing my chores.One day there was power failure in our place, my Mom asked me to clean my tables and cupboards.I thought it would be better if I sing my favourite song while cleaning. My grandma was sitting in her bed chanting "kandashashti Kavasam" I don't want to disturb her.So I sang mildly, that I can only hear.

Suddenly, I saw my Grandma going to the window, she saw the dog's cage( that's parellel to our room) and came back.She did that repeatedly.I was wondering what was wrong.I asked her.

She told me, "Ennannu theriyellai konja naerama Rosy(our dog) azhuthuttae irukku".I said, I didn't hear anything.She told me, now it stopped.May be I'll watch the next time,I told her.

Again, I started to sing my song, then she immediately turned to me and said, "Ipo kaetkuttha, Rosy azhuvuthu". I told her, "Athu Rosy illai naan thaan" she didn't speak a word, but she told me sometimes Rosy will sound like human, as if it was enchanted.My mom laughed after hearing that.
It happened a long time ago(more than 5 yrs), my grandma passed away so did Rosy.After coming to US, I called my Mom one day.She told me, "Ipo thaan naanum, vunga chithappa ponnum vunnai pathi paesitirunthom" I was happy my Mom is missing me.I was glad to hear the reason, I asked her, why? She told me, "Tuffy(another dog) was howling, athaan".
