K is for…

Posted by

A while back, Apar had this post up which intrigued me. I asked for a letter and got one. So here I go.

You leave a comment on this post, and I’ll assign you a letter. You write about ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter, and post it at your place. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain continues on and on.

You can leave a comment and not be assigned a letter if you want.  Just let me know if you want a letter to keep this going.

K: Love of my life. I utter his name probably more than anything else through the course of the day. Easy to see why it is my favorite K word.

Kindness: I have been incredibly blessed to have kindness in my life. From my family. From my friends.

Kolam: I love the sight of my mom making a pillaiyar from rice flour on a small palagai. There is something very touching about making an edible piece of art and seeing black ants carry away tiny pieces of the flour on their heads

Kitchen: As much as I am a reluctant cook, kitchen is one place where I feel at home. Whether it is cutting, cooking or making a pot of tea, it comforts me. It means security of a roof over my head and food in my tummy.

Kiss: This word brings images of my darling niece bestowing kissies on me and K as we leave for home each time after visiting her.

Knowledge: I truly believe knowledge is power.

Knock: I love knocking on a door and waiting to see the smile on the other side of the door.

Karma: I believe in Karma. What goes around, comes around.

Kettle: This is one thing I have a fancy for and do not own one.

Ketchup: Growing up, ketchup was one of those things that was not stocked in our fridge. I enjoyed the occasional snack when out shopping that came with a side of ketchup and almost always licked my fingers clean 🙂

  1. Weird…but I think I expected you to list most of the words you have!!!Actually it is kinda freaky I expected those! Did not expect ketchup, kettle and knock 🙂 😀

    @Apar: Not really freaky considering we hung out pretty much all day through 96/97.

  2. An interesting tag! Are you sure Kiss only brings images of your niece’s kisses? hehe – I’m just too naughty sometimes. Give me a letter 🙂 – it’s a good way for me to get back into my blogging!

    @Bavani: Welcome back! Here is your letter “D”

  3. I expected Kaapi instaed of kettle, close though. loved the kolam pic. It is done with rice flour because it is expected to be eaten away by ants? Is it supposed to go away by next day morning making way for new one?what is the story behind kolam? very curious to know.

    which letter do I get Laksh? I might give it a try..not sure though

    shy

    @Shy: Rice flour kolams were done to feed ants is the story my thatha used to tell me. Usually it is drawn at the front door so elements of nature ensure there is nothing left. If there is, it is usually washed and cleaned before the next kolam is drawn.
    Man! how did I miss Kaapi?? You get the letter “W”

  4. Nice kolam… I prefer arisima kolam compared to rangolis… dont know why…

    (I think it’s suppose to be a form of early morning exercise too…)

    @Selvi: Am with you on that. Love maa kolams to rangolis. Same thing for holiday lights. Prefer plain yellow to colored lights.

  5. Hello,
    Can i get a letter.Want to see if i can come with 10 words.Then i will post it in the comment

    @Anila: Here you go! “M” for you.

  6. *clearing throat.
    Excuse me, but why special treatment, and completely ignoring me? *very confused.

    @rads: 😦 sorry! I didn’t realize you wanted a letter cos the rest of them were specifically asking for one. I am really, really sorry! “B” for you cos I imagine you as bubbly.

  7. I liked the Kolam and Kettle Part, Both had been my daily routine for some days. But after moving to apartments, I dint find a competitor and slowly evaded of that practice. Kettle I had one nice kettle gifted, broken very recently. Had to buy one, so your post reminded me of the loss. What letter would you choose for me Laksh?

    @Deepa: “A” for you. Re: Kolam. I was never good at it and only make half hearted attempts to draw one on a tile when its absolutely essential.
