Yesterday was city tour from school. They took me around Hyderabad and showed me Hussain Sagar, Bhagavan Buddha , tank bund……etc etc.
No wonder they were taking about pearls and Hyderabadi biriyani…..
This week is the week of “people who help us”.
My mamma asked, “Who helps you the most Aryan?”
Aryan, “My Mamma helps me the most.”
Pappa, “He is one Mamma boy. God knows when he will be out of your spell.”
Then I told them about the other people who help us, like doctor, postman…..
Next week is the week of Musical Instruments.
Oh forgot to mention. Today is my birthday.
I got up very early. Without crying, I went to mamma. Took bath, got ready, packed my tiffin box, water bottle, and got ready all alone. NOTE: I did all these things without crying.
Then I did Namaskaram to Aayi, Baba, Mamma, and Papa.
My aayi got new Bob-the Builder dress for me. I like it very very much. My mamma got Xylophone for me. My papa got lots of activity books and one story book. Now the ratio of activity books: story books is more. They want me to do only activities or what??? Anyway I liked all my gifts.
My Thatha and chella patti called me. My badai papa, mamma and my cousins called to wish me. My Periyamma and periyappa called. My mamma’s friends: archana akka and Rajiv anna conveyed their wishes to Mamma. Swaram akka and Kanagu anna called yesterday ….Hoping Swaram akka comes home today to meet me…
Overall it was so good in the morning, until my Mamma opened the chocolate packet.
She started telling me to give to others. What????
I got so tensed. One by one all my chocolates were getting finished. She is telling me to give to my school bus friends, to my class friends. I started crying. I said I don’t want to share the chocolate. I said that we will get them mentos mint, the chocolate that I don’t like. I don't mind sharing them.
My mamma is scaring me by saying that, if we don’t share chocolates in school, all my gifts will vanish away when I come home. Do you think is it true?
Evening we have a party at home, with few of my friends. Today morning, when Mamma showed me their return gifts, I asked her:
Aryan, “Mamma, will they give us gift, so that we can return these gifts?”
Mamma, “Aryan, it doesn’t matter. Even if they don’t give, don’t ask them. We should never expect any gifts from others, we should just give.”
Seriously I never understand this concept!!!!!!!!! My mamma is hoping I will understand when I grow. Do you guys understand????? How much do you think, I should grow to understand this concept of sharing?
