in conversation with kids


scene one


saad is sitting on the lawn swing placed in the corner of the small lawn. his legs swing to and fro along with the 'jhola' as he likes to call it. Mama (my) walks out in the lawn and is about to sit on the swing with saad, when he plainly refuses to let her.

mama: (still sits, half smiling) let me sit with you saadi

saad: (reluctant and concerned) no, you cant...

mama: (already sitting with him, both swinging together in the as the winter sun shines mildly above them) why cant i?

saad: this is phopo/ aunt's(me) place. she was sitting here. just went in...

mama: ok i will get up when your phopo comes

saad: promise?

mama: yes

phopo walks out by this time.

saad: phopo is here, ap jao ab/ you can go now

scene two

Phopo all dressed up, with long earrings dangling from her ears and a pink lip gloss on her lips. she goes to visit little Bia.

Bia: (looks closely and after some thinking) phopo why is your lipstick so shiny?

phopo: because...

the child cuts in, ready with another question

Bia: why is your lipstick so pink?

phopo: it is...

Bia: (almost touching phopo's lips with her tiny index finger) oooooo its sooo shiny!

isnt it always exciting to see the kid-ism in kids.. it leave me in awe sometimes, esp at the pace this world is growing up and not being child for long!

Love how the lipstick's so shinyyyy!
I was constantly mesmerised by make-up as a child, guess its after effects haven't worn of yet.

I used to apply thick coats of petroleum jelly when I was a kid because I wasn't allowed to use lip gloss.

Nowazz!
The women in my family didn't really wear much make up, but I did plenty of embarassing just on my own!
