Dinner time laughter

conversations, admonitions

merciless teasing

bed time stories

brushing of the hair

pilgrimages to the book fair,

libraries, and stores

temple visits followed by

special times for eating out

oil baths and mangoes

revision for examinations

testing on public transportation

Discussion morphing into debates

and then arguments as the children grow older

blessings from the elders

singing for the visitors

Guavas and bananas

cricket matches

and heated tempers

Memories, memories

that make a family.

memories that keep flowering

forever and more.
