AyeAyeOoo and Internet redefined..

Almost every time I call a home I do hear very intelligent remarks attributed to someone called Mom…Last week was no different either….This is what bro told me few days ago…

Bro had to be out of town for a few days and had told Amma to pull out the power cord to the computer in case of thunderstorms…And when he came back after a few days away he was glad to see mom had pulled off the cord as he had reminded…Our computer has a history of going kaput during such times and such precautionary measures are often followed…But then he was in for a shocker of a remark…

edaa…njan aa wire oori ittu irrkuvaa…pettannu plug cheyyu…”


“chettan aychaa mail onnum vannu kaanilla…”


“edaa..plug oori irrkivaayirunnello…engane veraanaa..!!”

That is followed by a period of silent regret and speechless stupor by bro….

After a few min…

“edaa..nee athu ithu vere athu kuthille…”

“oh..amma cheyaam!!”

And after she forced him to get all the cables right, goes back to kitchen triumphantly and satisfied that the next mail would surely pop up in the mailbox without any hindrance…And bro was smiling inside as this incident was fodder for the next call we have…;-D

And did I mention the new car mom seems to have discovered in our roads…

“Edaa…aa carinnu oru velaathei perru aayirunnu…”

“ethu car amma?”

“Aye Aye Oooo”

My bro pondered over it big time..researched car sites and still couldn’t figure out…Few days later…while driving through the city Mom points out to a car speeding by…

“The Hyundai AyeAyeOoooo!!!”

Have a great week ahead friends….am still doing the KT sessions before she tells someone!!

Reminds me of a similar bombshell by one of by aunts.. Her neighbours son works in ikkikki bank...


ICICI Bank :)

Nona said...


My brother-in-law refers to ICICI as ichichi bank! Of course, he is mocking someone although I'm not too sure who the someone is...

skar said...

:)@First incident. No LOL because my mom is just like that :|

LOL@Second incident. Can't blame her! :)

LOL@ikkikki bank too :))

So long as nobody is reading HDFC like that its fine :|

Usha said...


btw, Have you ever tried giving a benefit of doubt to your mother's sense of humour?? :P

Abhi said...

Lovely! Awesome reactions from mom. Serikum shocking, but at the same time its truly surprising when mom's come up with such pleasant remarks. Lovely account :)

mathew said...

ikkikki bank. LOL!!! too much.. ;-D

hehe..seems like this bank is bearing all the brunt...;-P

haha..that was nasty..;-D

haha..oh yes..the car could be her joke..but definitely the power cord story..i doubt..;-P

oh..ithu ekke onnum alla...there are many such tales...when we cousins get together we fight over whose mom came up with the best..;-D

skar said...

Amal Bose said...

Ashwadhy said...

Lol!!!! Aye aye ooooo, redefining the Hyundai collection... he he he;)

CK said...

Considering my 'remarkable' malayalam knowledge, I must say that I am also very very impressed!!!

Moms are so cute!! Really!

When I was in Palakkad for a project, my mom's punjabi accent never allowed her to pronounce it properly. It was always - Pala - kkad.

"My daughter is in palla-kkad!" :P

And almost whole of Delhi parents, aunts, uncles, sirs and madams used to call NIIT as nit.... :)

"So you work in nit!"

Just wait! We are also going to get the same treatment when we will have our own kids! :)

Biju said...

Very funny post...

I can imagine your poor mom standing at the spot against you bros. :)

We have to give it to their innocent remarks. Truly oblivious of the facts.

Sakshi said...
