Today was the prize distribution ceremony and cultural programme for the independence sports week. The little one got the first prize for the sack race. The elder one won the first prize for mixed double in badminton. I enjoyed the cultural programme with the little ones in the society dancing and performing so well.

Life is beautiful once again as my wife came back after the tour. I missed her totally for two full days.

As I got very little sleep last night, I was feeling drowsy throughout the day. It was a working day till 1 o' clock. Then came back home. Had lunch together with my wife. She told me all the events happened during the educational tour. Listened patiently. I am happy that she is relieved of the tension of taking the small children for a tour for the first time and bringing them back very safely. All the parents thanked her.

Banana Pan Cakes Goan style.

Every morning for our breakfast, we would wake earlier than usual for these exquisite banana pan cakes that were served to us by the bungalow owners during our Goa trips. We would love it so much, that we hated our breakfast at home for a weeks after coming back from the trip. I am sharing the recipe here with everyone. Though the cook didn't share it with me the original recipe not that I asked for but I regretted not asking for it. So, as usual I figured it out as per the flavors and the taste on my own.

For the batter you need,
2 cups - white flour,
4 tbsp - powdered sugar,
1/2 tsp - baking soda,
2-3 eggs,
Milk as per the consistency,

On the side,
Honey
And the star of the dish, the bananas 3-4

Mix all the wet ingredients in a deep bowl then add the white flour, sugar and the baking soda (and a pinch of salt). Whisk it well. The consistency of the batter must runny not too thick for this one. Just like dosa. Once the batter is ready, pour it on a non-stick pan and spread it like dosa but a little thicker than the dosa so that it's soft and not crunchy. Cook it both the sides, it takes only a few minutes. Then take them in a plate, in the center of the pan cake slice bananas and roll it. Pour honey on top and enjoy. Children love it and you will feel like a child while you dig in.

When we see a man without eye sight or a man without a leg, then we will realize how blessed we are and having everything perfect in our physic. Each day, we have to thank God for how He has created us with perfection and also guiding us and protecting us, from dangers. That is how we are saved and complete.

We were always connected then too.

Organised 30 minutes meditation class for the students of the public exam classes - 10th,11th and 12th - between 3:30 and 4 pm today.

Vinayathmt
Meditation is not to run away from the society, but to come back to ourselves and see what is going on and make it better.

Gomathiathmt
Fear is created in mind, it is more an imagination of mind. If the fear is understood, soon the birth cause of fear is done, and leaves us. Have belief in God and surrender to know more about the secrets of fear.

Gomathiathmt
The world of psychotherapy would go jobless if known the fact that all phobias are the result of prolonged fear and all fear are just an imagination of mind. Self realization will make one to realize the fact.

Gomathiathmt
Money is not all. Money is a medium to live our life comfortable, but not at the cost of burrying all value system underground.

Gomathiathmt
Never ever serve food to others with a curse. It is better to stay away from giving food than cursing.

The humanism is digging it's grave. Wake up to save it. Else, the world is in danger. A complete destruction will happen for sure.

Better not to treat age old parents as street dogs. If so, do an humble gesture of leaving them in some old age home. But remember, what goes around.... comes around. Cheers.

Gomathiathmt
Listen to the heart's say of your parents. They have their own wish and life.

Gomathiathmt
No matter what, parents are our lovable God. How cruel you are to leave them at old age home when they are really in need of moral support.

Gomathiathmt
Do not leave your parents at old age homes. If so, your turn is waiting. Know it.

Today, at about 10a.m., visited an old age home near by, just to give a try to counsel Elders there. I met the cook, she said, they were not in need of any help and asked me to meet the senior citizen who was reading newspaper in the hall. I sensed, I was the unwelcome guest there. That's OK, introduced myself, and asked if I could extend my service here. The answer was 'no'. He was one of the house mate, 86years old. I asked, can I talk with you. Sure..... and I myself took the seat there and asked what had made you to come here. He said, 'I have 3 daughters and 1 son..... all married and well settled....... My wife left some 20 years back...... and after my son's marriage..... I could not bear the treatment of my daughter in law..... Basically I was a bank employee..... Getting pension now..... So I don't want to be a burden to the family..... Left the house, and joined this old age home 8 years back...... The happiness I get here is not there in my place....... and if any medical need, I shall call for an auto, go get checked up in near by hospital and return back'...... The tea time, tea was served at the dining by the helper...... So he asked me to leave, because other house mates are taking rest, please come at 5p.m......some other day. After reaching home, the matter is bothering me..... however as a counselor, I should not get attached to the emotions...... But the state of country and people today is more challenging. Parents takes care of their children so good, but children...... just throw them like garbage. Pity is the state of younger generation. What the education system is teaching all?? Where have the moral values and respect gone??? Hmmmm....... money, laziness, don't care attitude is spoiling all. The society has to be injected with heavy dose of moral values. Else, the toxic way of throwing parents to old age home will increase.

Gomathiathmt
I am careful, cautious and more aware of my words and action. Because the little teen of the house is following the same. I could observe that in recent past. Ha ha ha........ She is like watching me....... However it helps me to be more aware of what to speak, how to speak and act. It is again a self check. Good. But dear daughter, however your mom is also a human being, she cannot be perfect always.... She has her own false..... Please do imitate only the good side of her. Ha ha ha........

It is beautiful weather in Chennai now. Very cloudy and breezy also. Husband and I went for a short walk before breakfast after the girls left for school. It was very pleasant and green and we were both very fresh and active when we returned. It was a good idea.

I read an article about friends in one of the old readers digest.

Summary...we should earn two types of friends definitely in our lifetime..one who will always give the right advice , make sure you win like Lord Krishna. The other who fights for you even when you are wrong..like Karna.

I have both these friends in my life...in fact the one like Karna also makes sure she gives me a nice dose after the fight is over..it is be verbal now but when i was younger boxes were also part of the package....ha ha ha..

Relation is like a bird. If you catch tightly, it dies. If you catch it loosely, it flies. But if you catch affectionately, it remains with you forever.

Vinayathmt
'No' and 'yes' are short words which need long thought. Most of the trouble in life are the result of saying 'Yes' too soon and 'No' too late.

Vinayathmt
Speaking without ego, loving without intention, caring without expectation, praying without selfishness - are the signs of true relations.

Vinayathmt
Do not expect much from others and get disappointed, but most important, do not disappoint those who expect a little from you.

Kovalam beach in Kerala near Trivandrum is a lovely place. Previously it used to be very beautiful with the nature at its best, but nowadays it has started losing its charm.
I am planning to take a group of students for an educational tour to Trivandrum, Kovalam, Kanyakumari and Madurai by the end of September after the quarterly examinations.

Dinner will be my own preparation. I have planned idlis for dinner. Already my wife has prepared onion chutney and sambar, and I can make use of that in her absence.
A few idlis, banana and a glass of warm milk will bring back my energy (to sleep?).

Good things take time. Great things even more time. But just because it takes a long time to do something great it does not mean you skip steps and try to get to the top via unfair means. Life is easy, life is great, life is beautiful on this wondrous evening in Naigaon. It's a good time for all of us to spent time in analyzing where, why and how of all things connected to our life. And the background music played softly won't do any harm either.
