R is at an age, when she should have come out of the tantrum, no-no- no- no- I- wont stage..unfortunately, the brat doesnt seem to have come out of it…..
RD: R, come lets take a bath while Amma washes the vessels
RM: Lets finish your home work
RD: Let me get that book for you to read
so you get the drift right? Every question is answered with a big NO!
So the other day, I told her this story in the morning on the potty
R:Amma ek story bolo
RM: What story
R:Aap ko jo acha lage woh story
RM: Crying girl?
R: NO (See, I told ya!)
RM: Okie, then I will tell you no girl ka story
R: No Girl? Yeh kaisa naam hai?
RM: Well, you select a name for the girl
RM: okie, so Aastha was a very very good girl…she used to go to school everyday, do her homework, eat her food without a fuss, she has loads of friends..very nice, but she had only one problem
RM: she would always say NO to everyone and everything
If teacher asked ‘Aashta, will you write Z on the board’ she would say ‘no teacher’
If amma asked whether she would do her homework now, she would say no amma
If appa asked whether she would have a bath now, she would say no
If her friend asked her to wait for her before getting into the bus, she would say no
She would just say no for everything
R: hehehehe 🙂 no walli!
RM:Exactly, she was a no walli, always saying no to everything…then everyone eventually started getting upset with her…‘why does this girl keep saying no to everything they thought’ and soon her name became ‘no girl’
R: heheheheh! no girl, kaisa funny name hai na?
RM: yes..and then everyone slowly stopped talking to her because she would keep saying no all the time..her mother would tell her, dont say no, dont say no, but she would not listen and keep going on saying no no no…
R: koi baat nahi kar raha tha uske saath?
RM: no…then one day a new girl came to her class
R: Kaun, Aashika?
RM: okie, yes Aashika, and the new girl said hello to everyone….she came to Aastha and said Hi, my name is Aashika, can you tell me your name please..and Aashtha said ‘No’ and Aashika was so surprised..arey your name is No?
Aastha said no, my name is Aastha…and everyone else told Aashika that this girl always keeps saying no. so we are calling her ‘no girl’
Aashika was surprised but she didnt say anything…
RM: then slowly slowly Aastha started feeling lonely..no one would talk to her, no one would tell her anything…and then one day, when she went to sleep all sad, a fairy came to her dreams..
R: Saachi ki fairy wings ke saath?
RM: yes yes…(Note to self, who on earth told her about fairies having wings…wonders) so the fairy asked her why she was sad
She says ‘because no one talks to me’
The fairy says ‘do you know why?’
She says ‘NO’
and as soon as she says ‘no’ the fairy smiles…and says ‘may be because of this no?’
Aastha suddenly understands
R : interrupting ‘ arey woh no no bolti hai iske liye na’ bol ne ka na fairy ko pahelehi’
RM: yes yes..and then Aastha decides to change herself..
Next day, her Amma calls her ‘aastha get up, we are getting late for school’
She immediately gets up and says ‘yes amma’ and amma is shocked..arey she said yes, she usually gets up with a no..and then she says yes to drinking milk, and going to potty and having her bath, and wearing her uniform..for everything she says yes..her amma is shocked…what happened Aastha, she asks…
R: heheheeh! woh sab ko yes bolti hai..hehehehe 🙂
RM: yes, and so Aastha says from today, I am not going to say no to people I know…I will always say yes…
Amma is surprised…wow she says
In school, teacher asks her to write W on the board and she says yes..everyone in the class looks at her…arey yeh kya hua..teacher is very happy..and then Aashika is looking around for a pencil..she forgot hers at home and no one in the class has extra pencil…she thinks ‘let me ask the no girl, she will say no, but at least let me ask’ so she asks ‘Aastha do you have an extra pencil please’ Aastha says ‘yes of course, here take’ at this the entire class is shocked..WHAT ..Aastha is saying yes to everything…baap rey…whats wrong…
and slowly slowly Aastha learns to say yes to everything….everyone loves her and she is everyone’s best friend..and she turns from no girl to….?
R: yes girl..yayayaya!
RM: yes, now shall we have a bath fast?
No use telling the story eh?
