Thank you soooo much for all your encouraging words dear frenz...
Sayee and Bhavani for this wonderful blog and the beautiful pics!
Greeshma and Hasina.. for cheering us for the show, for that pat and encouraging words when we lost, and helping us in make up and draping sarees...
Thamil, Uthara, Sumithra, Kousalya, Sumathigovind, Buzzy, and all others who called us and wished us Good Luck! We tried our BEST to live up to all your expectations!
After reading all these... and the wonderful moments we had on the screen and off the screen... I don't feel like we lost the game!!! actually WE WON a JACKPOT.... this love, this support, this strongest bond of friendship, this joy of togetherness even when we all are miles apart... is there a better JACKPOT to be won? Nothing else in this word is superior to this girls.. I am overwhelmed!!!
It was real fun and we enjoyed it thoroughly.... dint feel like we were in a quiz or there are cameras around us.. Khushboo (this pretty lady is a pack of energy!! but poor thing was suffering a lot with her knee pain... but still kept smiling and and tried to cheer the whole set with her wits and naughty gestures...) was also so encouraging and casual that we really felt as if we were on a chennaimoms meet!
Yes Indhu.. there were interesting questions.. and answers... as it is yet to be telecasted.. i dont want to be a spoilsport.. watch it on TV..
We enjoyed every round until the challenge round .. the questions were not bad.. but out of 12, we knew 8 for sure the others we were not sure. Assuming the video round to be an easier one, the maximum we could bid with confidence was 9... we started with 6, they chalenged back with 7, we again took it with 8, they went fot 9.. that was our threshold too!! going beyond was risky.. We felt that it would be prudent to challenge there than losing with wrong answers and embarassment... chances of winning would still be there if they gave any wrong answers.. but they were pretty confident and gave 9 answers from the 10 questions asked, two questiong pending. They won the final jackpot round too!
Though it would've been still more thrilling if we won the show, this experience gave us a lot of moments to treasure for a lifetime (starting from the preparation for the prelims together!)... and Chennaimoms on TV! Bhavani and Sayee explained what is chennaimoms and we showed a chart Hasina prepared with almost all activities happening... and then Khush was also enthusiastic to know more about cmoms.. and announced that she would login as a chennaimom.... (this chennaimom was calling her daughters in between to check if they had breakfast on time and what they were doing then... general knowledge may not be general, common sense may not be common, but the feel of motherhood is the same in all mothers whatever you are whereever you are...)
