Yo Aamen So ...

'Sujata Tawde, khaate batate vade' (meaning: Sujata Tawde, eats batate vade) Aamen, my nephew riles me when I try to wake him up early in the morning around 12 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. I flare up all right with "How could any boy be so disrespecting to his Mawshi?". Aamen's blunt straight forward is 'What has it got to do with disrespect?, you can retaliate me with - 'Aamen kumar, Takle pe bhar'.

We the family members have always been so buddy buddy with Aamen that sometimes, well almost all the times, he stretches that buddy-bond beyond boundary. I can imagine you chuckling under the breath 'As you sow, so shall you reap'. Okay fine, we don't mind! He loves us so much that everything is fair and lovely in our relationship. 




Aamen is a happy, loving, caring child who loves to play, play and play still more with his friends. His daily diet is fortified with lots of fruits, Dal-Rice, Kellogg's Chocos and freshly cooked home made stories. Occasionally he gets to feast on ice-creams, cakes and yummy Yo yo jokes.

Aamen's sense of humor is phenomenal and he delivers it saucily, with a deadpan expression. We have enjoyed lots of "Khushi ke pal" with him.

I try to ruffle his feathers with 'Yo Aamen so lazy that he possess two Dunlop tires around his west'. He ROFLs and replies 'Yo Mouse ( petname for Mawshi ) so workaholic that she slogs and tires herself even in her dreams'.





I like to annoy him with 'Yo Aamen so lazy that his tongue needs rest while saying Maav...shi ... so he calls me Mouse'.

He YoYos me with 'Yo Mouse so Kejriwal that Kejriwal has replaced all the mirrors at his home with Mouse's photos' and 'Yo Mouse so Aaloknath that he calls her every morning to ask for a day's script'.

Aamen is extravagant, so my being careful with money is a constant source of jokes for him, 'Yo Mouse so Kanjoosh, that Shylock took special coaching from her and paid a whole pea as the fee' and  'Yo Mouse so Kanjoosh, that she shops for a pin, only when it's a Buy 1, Get 2 free deal'. 




Our war of words has enabled Aamen in gaining A+ in Essay writing and English literature. Aamen's Self-deprecating, tongue-in-cheek humor put us in quandary - 'Yo Aamen so Catty that he got a little mouse as a Mawshi'. His funda is very clear "Chill ..."

Aamen's sense of humor is hilariously  dangerous. He possesses an armor full of freshly sharpened one-liners. Stay safe in his company otherwise you might die in varying degrees of LOL, ROFL, LMAOing. Aamen's gem of a joke - 'Yo Mouse so thin that she actually floats in the air while walking so I have to hold on to her as if a balloon's string'. 

In other news 'Yo Aamen ke sath Khuljaye Bachpan so much that Rajnikanth dreams to be reincarnated as Aamen in next birth. To realize his dream Rajnikanth has opened up a giant Kellogg's Chocos manufacturing plant in his palatial kitchen' 

Wish you all lots Khushi Ke Pal with your kids and Kellogg's Chocos .

    1. Thanks Hema.
      Aamen means 'Tathaastoo' in Sanskrit , 'So Be it' in English and Amen = 'May God Bless You' in Hebrew . I heard this blessing in a Jewish synagogue in Byculla and was immensely intrigued, fascinated with the grand, surreal ambiance there.
