Some people arrgh

Today morning I woke up feeling a lil better.So had a bath and went outside to sit in the sun...yes!!! I am feeling that cold :)) My neighbour aunty, a pesky old lady sees me and starts on that irritating question session. It was too late for me to dart indoors. So she starts off "sicka?" I nod and say 'yes' and then she asks the next stupid question the likes of which makes me see red everytime "Why?" grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

"I dunno aunty, I'll ask the Virus" I say through gritting teeth and walk stroll off indoors.She is from Nagercoil and will drop into our house the moment she sees relatives and desperately try to pass herself off as a Malayalee. When her relatives are down she switches over to Tamil. I don't know why people are like this? Tamil is such a great language. And Tamilians are people I admire majorly. They are one of the few people who take great pride in their language, culture and traditions. Just go to Jagan's blog or any other Tamil bloggers blog and see the way they comment and converse in Tamil. Makes me feel so good. Unlike us mallus, you will rarely see a Tamilian insisting on a 'fair convent educated' girl when it comes to marriage. They are such a contended people with no hang ups.
