What laga diya


The conversations I have with my little one just make my day! She surprises me everyday. It is a two-way learning activity. Now, she can remember, relate and ask questions. The most feared "Why?" has not started yet. So, here are some snippets of my enlightenment.


As a regular routine, we were lighting the lamps and reciting shlokas in the evening, and..

Bunni: What is inside God Amma?
Me: mmmm.. A lot energy.
*Her eyes glowing*
Bunni: I drink Bournvita no? I eat all things you give no? Even I have a looooot of energy.

Did you know?  Bournvita is all it takes to become God.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We were travelling by car and it was raining, Bunni was carefully watching the wiper blades were wiping off the raindrops on the glass. Suddenly she exclaimed..

Car is shaving like Appa no?

Did you know? Car needs a shave on a rainy day?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In a family get-together lunch, they served "Aloo BonDa" otherwise called "Batata Wada",
It was hot and crispy,
Me: Taste it Bunni.. You will like it.
Bunni: No.. I don't want.
Me: Okay. See.. How Amma eats and enjoys..
Bunni: Amma.. Slowly.. There is no urgency.. No one will take that away from you.. Remove the peel and then eat.

Did you know? The mouth I opened to have a bite, remained open as I was awestruck by that dialogue. Have you tried eating an "Aloo BonDa" or Batata Wada without the peel? :D

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We had been to our village to attend cousin's wedding. Uncles have cows and buffalos at home. Bunni was excited very much about the animals in proximity.
One evening she sat watching my uncle milking the cow and she started crying.

Uncle: What hapenned? Why are you crying?
Bunni: Give the milk back to the cow.
Uncle: It has given for us dear.
Bunni: No! You took it. It did not give. You did not even ask its permission before you took.

She started crying loudly. I had to take her to a different place to divert her from the topic.

Did you know? You should ask the cow's permission before milking?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was asking her the meaning of lights on the traffic signal..
Me: Red means?
Bunni: Stop <with action>
Me: Amber means?
Bunni: Get ready
Me: Green means?
Bunni: <runs> Gooooo..
Comes back running to me and asks
What does the head-light color in front of the car mean?

If you know. Please let me know :D

    1. Don't know about the genius Ashwini. But, kids are generally inquisitive and their line of thought is very simple. So, we come across such situations. To get ready, we should be able to expect what is coming..

    1. LOL! True Prashanth. I find it so difficult to take time out. She tells me not to sit in front of laptop. She knows the shutdown button, she comes, she presses, she hugs. There ends my saga with the laptop.. :)

  18. Fantastic Sahana, Yes often they ask so many questions we can't ans or we don't know how to ans. Most often they also embarrass you by telling some things in front of relatives/friends. That is what you might expect soon if you haven't already experienced!

  26. Hahahahaha!! I used to ask so many questions to my aunt. Once I asked, how do you know if a camel is a female ~_~ And, how fat does a camel become when it is pregnant? I must have been in second standard back then.

    And, your daughter, ditto copy of yours <3 :-*

    :D Next time, please to peel the Bonda.

  32. Sahana,

    Navigated from Ashwini's blog. Read this one and will be back to read more later. You took me back to days when our children asked or said similar things. Now it is turn of our grandchildren. I always say that never say NO to a child or never ask child to keep quiet when too many questions are posed. One may divert attention in some way but NEVER say you are asking silly questions or keep shut.

    Take care

  33. ahahah.....so sweet!! how old is she? Reminds me of my kids' dialogues..:)

  34. so cute awesome and interesting dialogues...loved them all...

  35. Sahana,

    Back as promised. Read all current posts. Had a good laugh at common cold one. Khushwant Singh had written once that common cold gets cured in a week at its own but if you take medicine it become alright in seven days. One has to live with it. Only way is to keep blowing nose and drink a lot of water. Loved Bunni's pranks. It brought back my memories.

    Take care
