“Hey Dad! Who are RS Brothers?”, she is pointing to a sign board from the car window.
“It’s a shop’s name, my dear honey. May be it’s running by a group of brothers”, dad says.
“What do they do?”
“Umm.. they sell garments like saris, blouses….”
“Oh I see..” , thinking and says, “Why sell those things?”
“Ah.. They earn lot of rupees and, so they can feed their kids with lots of popcorn, potato chips, chocolates.. OK?”
Still thinking, the curious kid asks, “then what is RS in RS Brothers?”
Dad is thinking this time..
But kid says in the mean time, “Oh I got it. My teacher says, RS means rupees like Rs. 100. So may be these brothers earning rupees, so they put it as RS Brothers… Poor papa..Stop thinking…”
Well, I witnessed the above convo recently. And started thinking then. Our kids find the simplest things endlessly fascinating. I need to try harder to see things at their level.
