Parsley and Thyme

What I like at school

with 4 comments

Me : Chetu let us count the number of blocks you have here.

Chetu : 1, 2, 3, 6, 1, 5, 9.

Me : Chetu, have they taught you counting at school?

Chetu : Yes.

Me : Do you enjoy it?

Chetu : No.

Me : Hmm, then what else do you enjoy at school? Drawing..?

Chetu : Yes, I like drawing. Drawing, yes.

Me : Then, what else do you like?

Chetu : (Pauses for a few seconds and then replies) Tiffin.

Me : What?

Chetu : Tiffin, tiffin, tiffin. I like tiffin at school.

The next few minutes has both of us on the floor laughing and crying. Simultaneously.

  1. Lovely story there. Its great how you have captured not just the beauty of the moments with these little ones, but also the parallel sense of incredulity in our minds….. as we chat with them, trying to build bridges from our minds to theirs. Enjoyed the previous few entries too. Thanks, Natasha

  2. Such a cute story. You have a lovely blog and I have enjoyed reading all the writing you have put up here. Only grouse is there is too less of it. Looking forward to more from you.

  3. Thanks Amin, that’s really encouraging. And perhaps quite enough to wake me from my slumber 🙂 Thanks again 🙂
