Long ago there lived a little girl in Vijayawada who wanted looooooong hair.
She struggled with the unpleasant oiling ritual and the daily plaits to school
There came a time when she had to actually fold up her chotee- with ribbons and all
She gave up and chopped off her hair. End of story.
History repeats!! At least the first stage is in progress with the little girl's little girl now.
BTW if I have missed mentioning it - I reccomend this for kids and adults The busiest pop up book ever by Richard Scarry. Forget the inane story line of a Gorilla Banan thief, the pop ups are awesome and it is truly a busy book. Anush loves it and so does Navy!
