Few things happened..
1. R and I made cards for her class teachers (yep she has two of them) and I forgot to take the pictures..but one was a butterfly and one was a tree with red fruits…I just did the outline, R did the crayons (Pretty neatly infact!) and the outline was darkened etc etc
2. Got reminded of a song which my Appa wrote for Amma many many years ago
Oh Teacher My Teacher This is your day
Oh Teacher My Teacher we Thank you today
For all that you taught us from A B and C
You Brought us from 0 to 1, 2 and 3
3. R and I called up Amma Appa from the bus stop….I told her
R, lets wish Baroda thatha Thathi today
RM: Because its teachers day
R: Woh kya teachers hai..heheheheeh
RM: yes both of them are na
R: Thatha bhi?
RM: yes, abhi ho gaye hain na
So we call them up and wish them…after the call, R says ‘but thatha toh college mein hai, woh teacher kaise hue, woh toh student hai na?‘
4. On the same topic in the BEST bus, I tell R about wishing her teachers ‘Happy Teachers day’
R: Amma, aaj kyun teachers day hai, kiska birthday hai?
I think this comes from the fact that we just celebrated Lord Krishna’s birthday and there are talks in the daycare about celebrating Lord Ganesh’s birthday..so any day means someone’s birthday for the brat
RM: Its Dr. Radhakrishnan’s birthday
looks out of the window for a minute
R: Amma, woh kaun hai?
RM: Well he was a great teacher and so to remember him we celebrate his birthday day as teacher’s day
again looks out for a minute and then
R: Amma, hum ne kal unka song sing kiya daycare mein
RM: What song
R: arey Dr,Lalakishnan ka song
RM: But what song?
R: Today is Dr.Lalakishnan birthday
so we are having teacher’s day
RM: WHAT? yeh kya song hai
R: hehehehehe! Yeh song hai na..
RM: oh wow!I should ask teacher about this
R: no no no, we didnt sing, I only singing now
So the alreadyplanninginadvance RM sees a new profession for the brat…lyricist for Hindi movie songs???
