Learning

Haripriya,

When this happend, you were months old. Your eyes started following colours and people. I used to be with you almost every minute, when I am at home. Most of the time, I remember, I used to lie next to you tapping your little tummy for two extreme reasons. One, to make you sleep when your are awake, two, to wake you when you are in sleep :). Just to entertain myself with you.

I remember telling you a couple of chandamaama stories as well. I knew that you will not understand, but that never mattered to me. I had to repeat the same old stories many times. I also remember asking you some questions on the story. Yeah, this is kinda revision to you. Even after knowing the fact that you will not answer to my questions, I kept asking you some silly questions on the story that I tell. One such example is "What did the crow do when the fox asked to sing?" When I ask you some question, I used to nod my head up and down.

This one is pretty much an interesting bit. Though you didn't undestand that I am asking you a question, you started following me nodding my head. You probably thought that I am passing on some message to you.

Later, one day Sujji chinamma was pampering you, and for some reason I came near you and I nodded my head. You smiled, believe me. Your mom found this and told me and Sujji chinamma about this. We tried this again and again many times. Sujji chinamma nodded her head, you had no response, when I nodded, you smiled or rather laughed aloud. We repeated this as many as 10 to 20 times and every time, you laughed only I nodded my head.

This is perhaps your first learning.

-Maama
