Venky and our little next door neighbor Keya, meet after a long time (first Keya went on a long vacation to USA and then we did to Ranchi). They jump around excitedly visibly happy to see each other. I try to make conversation with Keya and ask her “Where’s your Baba Keya?”
Keya chooses to answer to Venky. She goes to him and says in a very accented English – “My Baba has gone to U.S”. (Oh, I wish I could let you hear the accent. It was so cute!!).
My son, amused at her new found language skills laughs out loud and replies – “Humka Papa office gayen hain!”
Sigh. The way those two sentences were spoken was a delight to hear. The post misses the impact. 😦
