Modern Avvaiyaar


My son has been so obsessed with Avvaiyaar and her Aathichudi since he's been taught that in school. 

One day, I was sitting on the floor watching TV. He started dragging and pulling me saying "Mummy... Avvai pannu... Mummy... Avvai pannu". I didn't get what he was trying to say.  I just stood up so as to see what he was up to. Immediately he took my rajasthani-hand embroidered jhola bag and hung it on my left shoulder and stuffed a pen in my right hand. And jumped in joy, crying out "Avvaiyaar... Avvaiyaar" 

And there.... I was standing as Modern Avvaiyaar...  amazed by my son's gesture.
