L&M (and the Brats)

The best thing about the Lord and Master (L&M) is that there is one in almost every family. While some are acknowledged indulgently as the supreme beings that they imagine themselves to be, others remain unsung. When I had started the series, I had done it out of sheer frustration but slowly warmed up to it, seeing the protagonist enjoying them, even correcting me or offering suggestions for more posts by reminding me of his numerous ‘exploits’. Well to make a long story short, he and the brats – the older of whom is a father himself – came to grace my blog. Not surprisingly, they are among the most popular posts.

The first piece about the L&M and the Brats was published in the now defunct Eve’s magazine way back  in 1991 and subsequently in other publications including the Times of India, Delhi.  The success of the pieces kept me writing about their endearing (exasperating?) antics and the encouragement from the trio was heartening. Incidentally, the erstwhile Brats have been threatening to sue me for defamation!

Do enjoy the posts under the category The Lord & M and the Brats.

    1. I tried to catch the wind,
      But it blew away from me,
      And flew into some wind chimes
      To play a symphony.
      The music was uplifting.
      The trees all raised their heads.
      The flowers did a waltz in their autumn beds.
      I zipped up my jacket when this zephyr danced with me.
      If I owned a sailboat, I would take her out to sea…

      M waiting for the dob zephyr mum! 😛 Share it with ur fans, so dat we can wish u atleast on the blog!


      1. That’s a sweet thought, Ridhima, but don’;t be fooled. the zephyr has a nasty way of turning into a mistral!

        This mum is a cancerian; explains why she suddenly starts walking crooked! dob, well, it is 26th june.


        1. Thanks for sharing! Yeah I can surely read the language of wit and can sense How naughty this Zephyr mum wud be!

          but certainly this Zephyr brings me sweet memories of the things I left behind. ( The Lord and the Brat series) esp. 😛

          1. I am simply paranoid about the internet. It will be sometime before I can venture into that realm. But thanks so much for being so enthusiastic about this (grand) mum’s blog! Comments like these keep me going for sure.

            I am sorta afraid to know what my kids are actually doing!!


  6. I am smiling ( evil smile ) .. Best wishes to you. I know one of your brats 🙂 and I am sure he is proud to have a mom like you. simply rocking. love you


    1. Thank you! I am trying to picture your ‘evil’ smile and have to admit it is rather hard to!


  7. Well, now have read all the posts and tried not to miss any expression between the lines.. and now before I Go and start bugging my mum. I thought to bug u a little more as well.
    Seriously its been long that i have smiled or giggled reading a witty writing( apart from some reading nonny jokes;) lol)
    Dats y m soo happy.. I found you:)

    The text has its own vastness. U are blessed with witticism … Solid and subtle text that peers into Truth. The one liners reveals the depth of his insight and the wideness of his outlook.

    Writing or a poetry is a manifestation of reality .. rather reflection of ones character and personality. This is itself an indication about the Aura u must be carrying. And that same must have been transferred within the people around you.

    I cant eat ur head each day and say please write more 😉 lol .. but yes.. reading your expressions are nice.. so Unleashed thoughts..:)

    Suddenly Remember Hemingway’s lines..

    For we have thought the longer thoughts
    And gone the shorter way.
    And we have danced to devils’ tunes,
    Shivering home to pray;
    To serve one master in the night,
    Another in the day…
