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?
Am I children?
No. You are mother.
We discussed a few more people and then continued eating.
You know something amma, very soon, I won't be children anymore. Very soon. I will be a father.
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.
