Life’s little joys…mean the world sometimes

Sometimes life’s little joys bring the widest, purest of smiles, give you moments that you want to cherish forever.

Yesterday, while on our way back from the pool, Namnam had wanted to hear a song which for some reason I was unable to play in the car. So I suggested we took the CD home and played it there. No sooner had I played the song, than Namnam started shaking her hips. Seeing her excitement, I couldnt stop myself and joined her in shaking a leg or two. And in no time the two of us were dancing away to glory!

Now, I’m an absolute non-dancer. It will not be wrong to say that I have two left feet when it comes to dancing. I’ve never felt very comfortable while dancing. So much so that I get very conscious of my surroundings when I’m asked to dance.Forget about surroundings, parties or gatherings, I cant get myself to dancing even when I’m alone :D.

But yesterday, I just didn’t care two hoots about the world. Not that the world was watching me, but I didnt even care about my own inhibitions. I was probably putting even Sunny Deol to shame. But who cared! All I noticed was how happy Namnam was when I was dancing with her, how much it meant to her. All I cared about ware those smiles that lit up her face when she had me & R join her on the ‘dance floor’. Oh yes, R joined us too, a while later. And the three of us found the perfect way to close our 5 day loooong weekend!

Thats how little it takes sometimes, isnt it, to make one realize how some moments, howsoever small they seem, can bring so much of happiness? In our rush to catch up with our lives, many a times we forget to live these small, but precious moments to the fullest, dont you think?

Anyway here’s the song that had the three of us dance our heart out!

  1. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!! I totally understand the ‘two left feet’ syndrome… Infact I would go further to say, I don’t have feet at all, when it comes to dance πŸ˜‰ I’m pathetic, and even that is an understatement!!! But yes, like you’ve said, even R is absolutely delighted when I join him to wriggle and jiggle πŸ™‚ Keep dancing, Deeps πŸ™‚

    D: You too, Pals!! Hi5, da!


      1. yeah IS confusing! 😈
        btw i dont get this..y do the mommies of blogville always refer their husbands by single alphabets!!
        I mean..i cant seem to understand the logic there..they can give cute names to their kids n all like buddy..chingu….pingu..coconut..chulbul..pokemon..redbull…. etc etc..but y this injustice against the Poor husbands!!
        They also have the basic human right to retain a full word as their names! Lets all join hands & stop this injustice !

        Pleejjjj…Stop referring husbands by mere alphabets!




        1. The last comment was for Vimmu πŸ™„ and this one is for the Malika Sherawat of Blog world BRAT (in case you are wondering how, it’s becoz of the way Brat changes his name on every post the way she changes her bikini) :mrgreen:

          What logic you don’t understand man? We as the wives have the entire right to call our husbands whatever we want. Besides if we give them cute names like Honey, Hubby, Chakkara, Narangamuttayi etc etc am sure the male ego will take it as an insult and sulk every time our blog stares at them from the laptop. 😑 πŸ‘Ώ

          Btw once you are married to that daughter of your ammayiappan what will you name her on your blog?


              1. @Saksh: I was waiting for you! Only you could have handled these two kashmalans! And you did..bravo!! free smileys

                @Brat: ‘Jailchaadiya bhrandande paavam kettyol’ would be more apt, dont you think 😈


                1. I know ! Its time we started a club !!

                  Brat, get married soon !!! I cant be the founder and the only member man !!! Look, there isnt any other guy around !! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


  2. dancing is all abt shedding ur inhibhtions my dear… no one is born a dancer we all become after letting go of the thing we have in our head πŸ˜€

    D: You’re absolutely right Mon! This is exactly what I’d been telling myself before, and yet I just couldnt bring myself to shedding those inhibitions! But thankfully y’day I could πŸ˜€

    yay to dancing deeps now πŸ™‚


  3. This is a very sweet song and in the movie also evrybody is just enjoying..even I am very inhibited while dancing, though i want to:)

    D: I loved the movie too πŸ™‚


  4. I’ve two left feet with 5 toes each and am the reason Sunny Deol has the guts to dance in public :)But yet when the little ones were really little, I used to pick them up and waltz around to their favorite music πŸ™‚ They used to squeal with delight. So I understand what you are saying here. I guess hence the idea that the best things in life are free.

    D: Priceless moments, aren’t they?


  5. Heyyy i can completelyyyyyyy understand ur aversion (or whatever might be a better term) to dancing and i think nothing but the final year college DJ could make me dance πŸ™‚
    and touchwood.. wishing u many many more happy times like this πŸ™‚
    i too lovie this song

    D: Its such a peppy song, na!


  6. ohh so thts y we had an earthquake in dubai!
    U wont believe this..u could even see the frikin Burj khalifa swaying crazy because of the tremors caused by ur life’s little joy! Control lady!!!

    D: Pooooooodaaaaaaaaa!


  7. Awww! That was the cutest thing Deeps!. And I can so totally identify with how you feel. I am just like you – can’t dance for nuts and definitely not outside πŸ™‚ But I let go too when I see Poohi enjoy herself πŸ™‚ It is so so so much fun πŸ™‚ Hugs!!!

    D: Hai,na?! Those inhibitions just cease to matter then.


  8. Ok first let the cute mommy comment “Awwwwww choooo sweet. muahhhh to you both” πŸ™‚

    Now the yakshi “I agree to all that Vimmu and the Brat said. Control Deeps Control. We don’t want you to leave behind craters all around in the gulf you see” πŸ‘Ώ

    Ps: I can dance and am sure Namnu, Poohi and Moi together will burn the dance floor πŸ˜› You and Smithu can handle the little sunny paji of my son :mrgreen:

    D: I dont mind taking care of your sunny..I’ll be glad to do so in fact. But I’m not quite sure Samy will want to be with this non-dancer aunty when he sees three gorgeous girls burning the dancer floor with their killer moves πŸ˜€


  9. Hi Deeps, I can very well identify with the two left feet thing !! I have the same problem, but just like you did, I do it often with my daughters at home, and it is so exhilarating. Now a days my elder daughter seems to have understood that her mother is too good in dancing πŸ˜‰ so in the midst of this ‘dancing away to glory’ she catches hold of my hand teaches me ‘mamma aise nahi, dekho aise karo” 😦

    D: LOL, Rekha! That was classic :).


  10. I love this song too!
    You are so right, it is these unplanned moments of fun that mean the world. Enjoy!!!
    (u had a 5-day weekend??? that’s a week for the rest of us..)

    D: Ha ha ha..yup! It did feel like a week-long holiday πŸ˜€


  11. Awww that is soo soo sweet Deeps. We r richer by love we cherish around us πŸ™‚ Luvvv this post πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  12. Awesome… !!!! a moment, day, a dance to remember Eh !!! touchwood !!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ this is such a happy phase… !!!

    and btw like mother like son… and sons son too… I m a total non dancer just exactly like you and so is my son… he thinks dancing means jumping… πŸ˜†

    D: Ha ha ha! Aise hi thodi na beta banaaya tumko :D. And now my grandson feels dancing is the same as jumping…come to think of it, I feel the same πŸ˜€


  13. Deeps, talking with a friend who is due on their anniversary, I remembered it ws ur parents anniversary too on ur bday. Sooo sorry am late 😐 But my best wishes to uncle and aunty and wishing aunty a happy teacher’s day too πŸ™‚ hugs and God bless πŸ™‚

    D: Thank you, Swar. Hugs!


  14. Yeah ..we end up doing so many things for our little ones which we never though will do..just to see that 1000 watt infectious smile on their face ..

    D: I know! Anything to see that 1000 watt smile πŸ™‚

    much have been a perfect moment


  15. WOW, I love the spirit of bonding, by small things, which gives us immense pleasure. πŸ™‚

    Am so happy that u took to dancing, when Namnam called u. πŸ™‚ This moment is to be treasured. πŸ™‚

    For, rest assured, that as we grow older, the child enters teenage and doesnt want their mom shaking their legs badly to tunes…LOL…thats my story…. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

    D: ha ha ha!


  16. me doesn’t want this video Deeps… me wants the other one … with u dancing πŸ˜‰ … cummon … puppy please πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

    D: Yeah sure, so that my blog stops getting whatever little hits it gets…what an evil thought πŸ˜› πŸ˜›


  17. Yes! to the title. It’s just wonderful to be just being goofy with your child and doing all the crazy stuff you otherwise shy away from.

    I watched Aisha. I’m sure you can dance much better than that Sonam Kapoor.:) What a non-actor, non-dancer, the girl is.

    D: I find her so irritating too!! I liked the movie though, but only because of the very delectable Abhay Deol ;). Sad that he had very little screen time in the movie.

    Hugs to Nammu chakkara and her sweetu Mom.

    D: Hugsssss to you too πŸ™‚


  18. Deeps, am sooooo sorry. I had planned to call and wish Nammu sday for a longgg time, but my sore throat did not allow me to 😦 I ws nt even able to login and post a wish. PLsss forgive me. Loads of hugs and muaaahs to my chakkara girl from Swaram aunty and God bless her with all love, happiness and positive spirit now and always πŸ™‚
    Hugs πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    My bestest wishes to u and R too πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


    1. Are you nuts, Swar..saying sorry and all that! The thought is what matters, re πŸ™‚ Thank you soo much for your wishes πŸ™‚

      Love, Hugs & Muahs from me & Namnam πŸ™‚


  19. Now wait till she asks you to shake it a bit on a ‘real’ dance floor?

    what about the inhibitions then? πŸ˜‰

    D: he he he! Now thats one going to be one helluva challenge πŸ˜‰


  20. What no video??? I really want to see how can someone put Sunny Deol to shame! lol…

    But it is fun dancing with kids with the door closed πŸ˜‰ Even Yuvaan loves and sings this song.


  21. wowowo you shud see me when i am driving back home or to work.. people think this sardar has gone mad… in the car.. the music is at full blast and i am dancing in the car… and not jsut sunny deol I would put his father dharmendra to shame tooo…
