Dad, are you turning in your grave?

i know you cannot, since we did not bury you... but tell me, have you read my post on how i cook with my iPod on the ears? you must be laughing away... since no matter the amount of goading you and Ma did, i would not learn music... so you had to dispose off the harmonium that you had specially ordered in the hope that i will learn music and may be entrall a whole audience or that finding a groom for me would be a tad easier with some three songs that i could pick up...
no, i still do not sing, but yes, i listen to a whole lot of music, most of which we (B and i, together) have discovered, not by hearing you sing (in fact let me tell you, i do not listen to George Biswas or Kanika or even Hemanta, since the heart feels heavy)... i listen to 60s rock and some contemporary ones (including Pijus Kanti, whose rendering of Rabindra Sangeet is different)... but they are music too, so take some consolation from this one.

I guess he'd say we actually wanted you to have music as ur companion, for it has its appeal both in the dark & happy hours of life. An i-pod as u stir the dal is absolutely ok, only if ur rock doesnt turn salt to sugar. what does the daughter say?

correct... and i am more careful than that... sugar and salt are kept in two different corners of the kitchen!!!
