As the juicy mangoes melted our soul
And the coconut water nourished our yearn
As the sun drenched our skins dark
As the moon lived longer
In my grandmother’s house
I spent a summer month…
Have you ever felt gutted that your child could not experience summer the way you did in the good old days? All those lovely grandma stories, songs of the summer, traditional snacks that melt in your tongue, and play in the open air.
We did. We felt gutted for our children who miss the delicacies of a true Indian Summer. And we did what we always do. We recreated the forgotten magic.
There are grandmas around. They narrate stories. They sing songs and dance along. And sometimes, during all this hullabaloo, their wigs fall!
Then there are games. The games that set off laughter, those that make us squeal, clapping and shouting, running and cheering. 5 Kallu, Pallankuzhi, Pambaram, Chozhi, Nondi, and Paandi are only few of the many.
And then, there are things to eat! Ice lollies, Paanagam, Aam panna, MangaiVadagam, and Masala – all that would treat your tongues and your senses.
It is summer before the advent of gadgets and video games stole children’s laughter. A summer borrowed from our generation’s childhood, contributing to children’s gross and fine motor skill development. A summer your child will want to live in forever.
