My Killi ( parrot)

Anush's voice will be heard at least by thousands today.

My parents and the "uncle who came to see me from Appa's office " together recorded Anush's voice wishing Suchi good morning and wishing listeners a Happy Children's day!! It is on air today.

It is nice to watch Anush and my father in conversation. One little adult and another young adult in action. Appa's energy is infectious and his concern for Anushka amuses Amma and me since he has never been one to display too much emotion.

We usually spend time daily with my folks but it is rare for them to come over to the new place often, since it disrupts their routine. Also Amma has an evening job now.

Yesterday Appa delighted his little girl and her not so little mother ( me) by paying us a visit on Children's Day eve and Anush wanted him to stay the night and also call both her paati and my paati over. I am so glad that she is affectionate .

We watched a documentary on Botswana last night and I named some of the kids in it as Handa and Akeyo. Today she recalled it and said she thought it looked like Handa's home- Kenya!

And yes I won the first prize at the office held Saftey- Health and Environment Quiz. Rs 500 prize money!!

Happy Children's Day baby to you and all the little ones out there. And did I tell you I loved Nehru when I was a kid?Again at Landmark but at an appropriate hour this time.....
