Conversation

While having lunch today, somehow the topic of children came up.

What's called children Ashwin, I asked.

He finished chewing the food in the mouth and replied:

Children are people, but they are small. Like me.

Is Divya children?

Yes.

Am I children?

No. You are mother.

We discussed a few more people and then continued eating.

Suddenly:

You know something amma, very soon, I won't be children anymore. Very soon. I will be a father.

Really?

Yeah, that's what happens.

Won't you be mother?

No. You know how it works.. If you are a children and you are a girl, you can be mother. If the children is a boy, you can only be a father.
