Last week I went to a cousin’s marriage where all our kids met for the 1st time. The kids were playing amongst themselves when my cousin’s 9 year old son exclaimed, “Now I will get one more...
The moment i decided to get my son admitted in a play school, all elders in the house sympathized with my son – “Poor soul. You have to start studying at such a tender age. But these days competition is so high. So you have to start early.
