Chennai - 10 Vocublary

This post is copied from a letter ( Sept 17, 2014) your father has written to your brother when he asked what all words Reet can say... you learn all this after we shifted to Madras. Children learn by seeing and listening, You are a fast learner at the age of 33 months...

# for her Kurkare is 'kurki'

# any fruit except apple and banana is 'orange'

# she can take few tough names very clearly - vedhema & Alangara (working in srishti, puglendi (driver), dhanlaxmi (our maid)

# she just adores 'lungi dance' song and can listen to that all the time. You should see her excitement when that song plays. And yes, she runs to find own glasses (we bought her own glasses in mumbai) as the song starts playing because she loves dancing on that song with her glasses on! As the song says "anna ke jaisa chashma laga ke.."

# she loves watching old videos on my ipad, especially the ones we shot in Pathashaala during our visit.

# she's addicted to ipad in a way and you should look at her when she comes to me and ask for the ipad. She will come to me with twinkling eyes so that i mellow down, point using her eyes to ipad and says to me in hush-hush tone 'papa ipad khelna hai' and if I say no, she will first make very masoom sa face, on 2nd no she will hit me and on 3rd no will start crying!! She knows one of the three things will work on me! Total natakbaz!

# she loves going to swings and it is become so difficult to get her back home! She will go from swing to slide to see-saw and will keep repeating this cycle. She starts chatting with kids there and try telling them about Kavita, kavita uncle (our neighbours), dhanlaxmi (our maid), or something about srishti or some event during the day. And you know she loves to talk!!

# for her dustbin is dustpatin  

# and  when she need iphone you will say Reet wants to charge the ipad and she will say this is my phone, ये म्‍मा का फोन नही है1 she wants to keep phone to her side and then she will take it quickly to take some pictures. 

On the way back home, she likes to spend time near the I block tower. She will run away from me and get into any elderly lady's lap by calling her Nani or Dadi and will start saying 'bye papa bye papa'

when i read this post i feel very delighted. I am sharing here as a memory to create for you to come to this space and read..
