Why Mother's Day?

Morning 6.00 am, Mobile started getting flooded with SMS’s like
1. Want to give a unique gift to your mom.. call xxxxxxx.
2. Want to honour your mother on a special day SMS xxxxx.
3 .Show your love for your mother… call xxxxxx

Bull shit, I was literally annoyed with such kind of advertisements. I do not understand what so special on this Mother’s day to show ones love / respect to their mother. Don’t we show it daily? Or only on this day you think about your beloved mom!

Now don’t tell, ON THIS MOTHER’S DAY One should treat their mother with special love, special care, special respect, treating special and keeping extremely happy.  If you are going to show special love to your mother, it should be on all days. If you are going to show very special love, it should be on every hour. Then why do we need a stupid day to show the “so called” love. 

If some don’t think of their mother every moment of life or someone thinks that mother’s day is so special and rest of the days is not so-special then those creatures are not fit to live on earth. They don’t deserve a place in this world.

Leave alone mother’s day, the list is way too huge starting from
a. Girl Child Day
b. Women’s Day
c. Father’s Day
d. Population day
e. Doctors Day
f.    ……
z. Parents Day

If this is going to continue we will surely land up with the brother’s day, sister’s day, your day, my day, cousin’s day, Second cousins third brother day and so on. I am not sure if all these are already there and started by an in-sane idiot.

Either if you show your love or not, the love and blessings of a mother will never gets changed or deteriorated to her children. It will be same and it will be much more than what you show on her. Then, why the hell do we need to have something like mother’s day, women’s day and Girl child day.
1. Are we discriminating them?
2. Are we trying to tell that they need special attention and care?
3. Are we trying to pacify them by showing our love for just ONE DAY either by SMS, message, letter or mail?
Whatever we do, it can never be equaled.

Thought: One in-sane idiot from some stupid country would have started this special day. Could be for the following reasons
a. Was not living with his mother (reasons unknown)
b. Was away from mother because he was not liking family environment at early age
c. Wanted to live with friends and partners

And so on… the list can never be completed. One fine day at the bottom of the heart, he would have got sympathy on her mom and would have started this Stupid day-syndrome. If someone not living with his/her mother let him/her worry throughout the life for not being with his/her mother, rather showing the phony love on one particular day.

Few things everyone should know and understand,
a. Woman is a Karmayogi.
b. Human life purpose gets fulfilled only by woman
c. Women are equally revered to men. If you want to know more about this please read the stories of Damayanti,  
d. Woman maintains the family and spiritual affairs strengthens only because of her.
e. Woman Sacrifice her individual pleasures and serves the family.
f.  She is the one who grooms her children.
g. The house may be build with stones, rocks and wood but the real house is the woman who maintains the customs, traditions with vigilance. 

And you guys/girls are showing your love and respect on a ONE particular day. Huh! Please if you are not able to show your love, Please don’t hurt your mother.

The Great Adi Sankara Bhagavatpadal  in his Mathru Panchakam said
a. Dhatree  - One who bears the child
b. Janani - one who gives birth to the child
c. Ambaa - One who nourishes the limbs of the child
d. Veerasu - One who makes him a hero
e. Shusroo - One who takes care of him

He express to his mother and points out how his conscience is pricking him for being not able to do the duty of a son. When the great shankara cries like this, what can we do? All we should do is just be with our mother till the end of our life time and keep her happy each and every second of our life time.

/*Amma, in my life time you might have got hurt so many times because of me 
I have commented out this line, Its should not be might, It should be "HAVE"
Thanks to Sridhar (Thambeeee)
Amma in my life time you have got hurt so many times because of me
(Sriram), In-spite of that you still treating me with utmost love and care. All I can say is “Amma, You are so so so so special, and you don’t have a substitute”You are an embodiment of Sri Devi.

Pizza Corner – Pizza Conner

Ordered Pizza from one of the famous pizza outlets in india. “Pizza Corner”. Since my place is close to one of the outlets (Pizza Corner Velachery), I always get the stuff delivered from that outlet. One of the worst promises that will be made by the “Phone order taking girls/Guys” will be “Your pizza will be delivered with in XX minutes”. Till now I have never got the pizzas on time and I dont want them to hurry too. The way these guys drive the Scooters makes lives miserable for pedestrians. If they are in a real hurry, The public on the road will get affected or this guy will skid from the vehicle and sustain serious injury. Many of these guys are not wearing the helmets too. Moreover, I don't want to “EAT” free. Considering the traffic let them take a grace time of 15 to 20 minutes. 

I know many people who waits for the “extra few minutes” to pass and then get the pizzas for free. Don't know what the mind set of the people is?. Always eat free...Huh! nice family! Nice culture!! On the other hand, sometimes the delivery boys come to deliver after 2hours of time. It has happened to myself and there may be many such “un”successful stories.

Fine, they can say “better late than never”, but what about the order. If you see the image you will understand what I am coming to. The whole extra toppings got glued on to the top of the box. All I got was a Pizza Base. This has already happened once and I complained to the manager of Pizza corner velacherry (Pizza corner velachery). Pizza corner's manager was so nice, he went to extent of replacing the order. In that case I have to wait for one more hour without eating. I left it off. Today again the same thing happened, extra cheese got stuck on the top of the box. I was so damn hungry I cant even shout at the guy. If I complain what will be result? The Pizza Corner manager will be friendly, nice and will ask me to wait for another hour for replacing the same.
A Delicious food will not be delicious unless it is served clean and neat. Leave alone the pizza box, Just have a look the  cover of seasoning and mouth freshener. Yuck! Yuck! Yuck!. The covers are not properly sealed. I am sure the cover is sealed with an age old technique of showing the open end to the candle flame. It does not look nice. Infact it looks UGLY. Even in the road side groundnut shop they seal the cover neatly and its done with an electrical machine. Cant the Pizza Corner use the small size zipper bag for this or use a machine to seal the cover.

On top of it, we spent around Rs.600.00 for such a nasty service. Where is value for money? What happens to the promise he made last time? and WHAT is the value of my money?  In the previous instance, Pizza corner's manager said in a very nice tone “Sir! From next time this will not happen Sir! I will surely take care sir! Don't worry Sir!” (in a typical tamilian accent). Please note, I am not degrading any tamilians here! Don't read this sentence alone and starting questioning me :-)

I am sure these guys will not heed to customers voices. Decided! No more Pizzas from any outlets of Pizza Corner and moreover No more references to my friends too. There are lots of better pizza outlets in chennai who can do a great door delivery.

If this is the state of Pizza Corner sure it will be cornered.
