My Son and I

Janmashtami with Rohan

My Son and I-

Lifelong buddies??

Judge for yourselves!


“It’s study time”, I say

Says he – “Time to play!”


I say, “Eat your beans,”

“Gimme chips”, he screams!


“Did you do guitar practise?”

“SSShhh…I’m on the iPad”, comes a hiss!


We fight, we argue, we shout

We sometimes have a boxing bout,

But, at the end of every tiring day

My son has only this to say:

“Even if you smack me black and blue

Amma, I will always love you!”


My Son and I

Lifelong buddies? 

You bet!

Like most mothers she knows, Ramya juggles between finding something that satisfies her inner self and doing something that satisfies her family! Mother of two children, a boy and a girl, her parenting philosophy is not so much to be a popular, cool parent as to bring them up with values that she holds dear. When not donning her 'amma' hat, she switches between being 'manager of Digital Learning at IIMB', 'payer of bills', 'cook', 'cleaner' and 'reader of PG Wodehouse and Georgette Heyer.'
