Growing together :)

Sitting in sun, the old lady tries her best to feed her little granddaughter but she is not ready to eat anything.

The old lady says "chhetti khaa lai kuriye, koa aayega te teri roti lai jayega"
(--eat fast or the crow ll come and take your food).

The little girl, sees in the old lady's eyes, tries to hold The old lady's face with her small hands and tells her with a maturity in her voice "Dadi Maa, isko Koa ni kehte, isko Crow kehte hain"
(--grand ma, this is not called as Koa but Crow).

The old lady tells her, "Bete, Isko, english mei crow kehte hain aur hindi mei Koa.
(--In English it is called as Crow and In Hindi we call it Koa)

She says "English..Hindi.. Mmm..Thennnnnn..Dadi Ma, To Isko Maths mei kya kehte hain?
(--what do we call it in Maths?")

The old lady thinks for a moment and then reply "agar ek koa to, One crow, agar do koe to Two crows, aur agar teen koe to Three crows.."
(--In Maths, we call it One crow, and if there are two, we call them Two crows and if there are three, we call them Three crows..)


And together they repeat the counts:

One..Two..Threeeeeee..!!

One..Two..Threeeeeee..!!

One..Two..Threeeeeee..!!

And unknowingly, she finishes her food and I see all this smilingly:)
