First story

February 2, 2007

Aru has started narrating stories. The fictional variety.

Till now, most of her stories were dramatised version of everyday happenings at the day care and at home. “Mamma, Aditya aaya. Neel joole pe baitha. Aru damma se gir gayi.”

Now she has started following stories and attempts to narrate them back. Her first story is from the song sung by Amitabh Bachchan (whom she calls Dadaji)- “Mere paas aao mere doston, ek kissa suno…“. We have a VCD with a animated version of this song. And this is how her story goes-

Aru: “Mamma pata hai, ek baar kya hua?”

Me: “Kya hua?”

Aru: “Ek jungle me ek sher tha, aur ek dadaji the.”

Me: “Hmm”.

Aru: “Dadaji ne sher ko kaat liya (shows her teeth)…” (giggles)
