Amma, asked the brat, as I make her bournvita, is it raining today?
No, but its pretty cloudy. I hope it rains (Dont faint with shock, I havent started loving the rains, I have matured enough to realise its a necessity!) we need the water
R: But Amma, why God not givofying rains to sab ko
RM: Well God has just started giving the rains na..it takes time..to come from clouds ke upar se and then come down
Sitting on chair looking out of the French window, she sips her milk and says
R: Amma, which God is giving rain
RM: All Gods give rains beta
R: oh okay
after 2 seconds
R: Why God can dekhofy us and we can not dekhofy God
RM: thats because God is God and God is everywhere. You cant see God but you can feel God na…lets say in your heartbeat
R: Acha…mere heart mein kaunse God hai
RM: sab God
R: but mereko aaj kal Hanuman God aache lagte hain
RM: Toh you have Hanuman in your heart
Again after 2 seconds
R: yeh Hanuman (u)maachi ke wife ka naam kya hai
RM: errr…well, I dont think he is married
RM: He didnt find a girl to marry?
R: shaking her head knowingly..acha
R: Suraj umachi ke wife ka naam kya hai
*Darn, who told her about wives and husbands ufff!*
RM: I dont know beta, I dont think he is married
Acha abhi you sit on the potty chalo chalo
R: Then we can gossip on potty seat
*Rolls eyes* yes yes chalo
On the potty seat
RM: yes yes
R: Mere heart mein hanuman hai, aapke heart mein kaun hai
RM: Sab bhagwan
R: But aapka favorite kaun hai?
RM: No one
R: no no no you have to tell..kaun hai bolo bolo
RM: Ah well. lets say, Saraswati bhagwan
R: girl hai aapki favorite, toh meri favorite parvati hai
RM: great, abhi potty karo
R: Hanuman ke Amma kaun hai
R: Mere daycare mein bhi hai Anjani..main usko Anju bulati chu
R: Aur Hanuman ke appa ka naam
MIL: Vayu bhagwan, wind God
R: Aur Parvati ke Appa ka naam
R: Mummy ka naam
RM looks at MIL for help. She smiles and shrugs
RM: Google karke shyaam ko batati hoon
R: Google ko pata hai
R: Google aapka friend hai
RM bursts out laughing..yes yes mera friend hai
R: toh usko ask karo ke Shiva ke amma ka name kya hai?
RM: okay, but I dont think Shiva had parents, woh aise hi aa gaye the
R looks at me in wonderment
aise hi? wow..ekdum smart hai na
yes darling..abhi potty karo and lets go..
R: you asking google and telling me in shyam na
RM: yes yes
And thus ended the conversation yesterday. I swear keeping up with R’s questions is going to drive me crazy soon…this sudden interest in mythology, ammas and appas and wives and husbands is going to drive me crazier..
Just for the information – Parvati’s mom’s name is apparently Mena, the daughter of Mount Meru as per my friend Google 🙂
