They Grow up Fast

23 Oct

I went to pick Nikhil up at his school yesterday. Their school has two large buildings separated by a large field. One building houses the primary school (Classes Nursery to 6th) and the rest of the “brutes” are in the second.

Sitting in the middle, I saw the kids from the lower classes come out.. all tiny and playful. I was reminded of the days when Nikhil was the same age. Those days I used to look at the kids in the higher classes and wonder when N and friends would grow that tall… Now I wonder whether any of them were that size at all.

Then they came out.. Nikhil and four of his friends… all of whom I have seen from the time they were tiny tots.. ALL OF THEM taller than me ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

They grow up fast ….

Now N wants to start blogging ๐Ÿ™‚

    Being uncle to 9 nieces/nephews, I can relate first-hand. The oldest is – well, let’s just say, that if he was a girl living 50 years ago, he would have had 4 kids by now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I have to constantly guard against talking down to them.

    “it would be nice to see the other side of the story”

    … and i am sure aditya will be glad to pitch in! ๐Ÿ˜‰


    once you have scaled the summit, only horizontal growth remains! ๐Ÿ™‚


    “I have to constantly guard against talking down to them.”

    literally or figuratively (assuming both options are available)? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    – s.b.
