Zini has started speaking Ban (1), two(2) , thi (3), four(4)… and i was excited thinking that she can count!!!
So, i asked her
Me: Mumma ki kitni eyes hai? (How many eyes does mummy have?)
Me (Thinking that she can now count): Mummy ke kitne ears hai? (How many ears does mummy have?)
Me (Beaming with happiness): Mumma ke kitne nose hai?( How many nose does mummy have?)
Me (Oh, probably she thought of Nostrils): Arey Zini, Nosie to 1 hai.
Me: Mumma ke kitne hair hai?(How many hair does mummy have?)
No, she can’t count yet (though not many :(, but i actually have more than 2 hairs) . To confirm i go on asking.
Me: Zini, mumma ke kitne head hai?( How many head does mummy have?)
No, i am not a scaled down version of Raavan, nor am i like the “Be Mathalo Boss” of Taarak Mehta (The famous article series in Chitralekha – not the T.V. series)!!!!
This is where, i stop asking, i have learnt my Lesson in counting….
