I am lying on the bed and showering my affections on Venky. Tunmun is jumping around all over me. I pay little attention to her. She is tugging my T-shirt and climbing over my back. I continue hugging and kissing Venky, not registering her.
“Mamma, Mamma…. “
Her voice gets drowned in Venky’s and my laughter as we continue to play with each other.
Then it comes loud and clear
“Ek tho aul bachcha hai tumhale pash!“
Translated – “You have one more kid, you know!”
Well, yes Mam. It’s hard to forget with such reminders :p
