Anushka never ceases to amaze me- just like most kids her age. . .
The Old and The New( not young)
Anushka- "Situ paati( my grandma) is very old... Paati( my maa) is not so old.... You and I we are new na?"
Navy- "What about me?"
Anushka- " you are very old appa"
Navy still not giving up- " Between A thaathu (my dad) and me?
Anushka delighted at her own joke- " A thaathu is not so old, you are VERRRRY old pa"
All Girls school- what deprivation!!
She wanted to know all my friends' names from my school days. I rattled them off.
She asked" No boys' friends amma? Why?"
"Well, thaatha paati put me in girls' schools Anushka"
A Marriage proposal- progressiveness incarnate
In her sweetest most beseeching tone" Amma please marry me"
Me- "Anush I love you sweety but Appa and I are already married na?"
Anush- "It is okay amma, you can again marry me."
