pUnal mAtru padalam aka Avani Avattam

Being a person venturing into agnostic territory, i must admit that i did change my "cross-belt", officially known as the sacred belt. This time it was not at Padma Seshadri, K.K Nagar, did it at home.
Actually, my mom literally forced me to do it (i was told i wouldn't be served a nanoparticle of vadai, payasam, sundal, rasa vaangi, thayir saadham and muttai kose) unless i change my cross-belt. Thalaivar dialogues like "Anbe Sivam", "Mansaatchi dhaan kadavul" didn't help.

Generally we men, i suspect, look for a wife who is a remastered version of mom. I say this even at the risk of taking a sweeping and simplistic view. Like unity in diversity, we'd like to find our partner in life's crimes to be as much like mom as possible, at the same time showing completely contemporary and different shades of personality.
What about the expectations from the other side? That ain't our problem!

    Amma sentiment, (the favorite sentiment of TF industry) i guess :)
    For e.g, men might be lazy (like me), but like their moms, i think most wud like their wives to be up and running early...That's the drift.....
