Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.

Flash Post 282!

You’re off to Kolkata again?

Yes, my dear Button. Every time your Dost takes off for Kolkata, I go along too so I can meet up with my ailing mother. Do you know who I am talking about?

Of-course I do. She’s the lady in the white sari.

You’re 100% right. And Dost is so sweet, he makes me an offer to accompany him every time he travels to the city because he feels that I must meet her and demonstrate my love for her as often as I can, given her current condition.

That’s so amazing?

As I fly to her, the song Mother Of Mine, comes to mind. It was written by Bill Parkinson and made famous by Scottish singer, Neil Reid, who was found singing at a pensioners’ party at age 8. He was 12 when this song reached number one on the UK Albums Chart. He also went on to win many more awards.

I know that song. I’ve heard you sing it so often that I’ve picked up a stanza or two. It goes like this, does it not?

Mother of mine
You gave to me
All of my life
To do as I please
Without your arms
Where would I be
Mother sweet mother of mine.

Mother you gave me happiness
Much more than I can say
I pray to the Lord
That he may bless you
Every night
And everyday…

Mother of mine
Now I am grown
And I can walk straight
All on my own
I’d like to give you
What you gave to me
Mother sweet mother of mine…

Button, I didn’t know you could sing so well. You even got the lyrics bang on!

Thank you so much. You must sing this song for your mother. Have you done it before?

I think I have.
