Vyas: Ma, what are Asteroids?
Me: They are large objects that orbit the Sun like earth.
Vyas: Are they planets?
Me: Not exactly. They are similar but smaller than planets.
Vyas: Are they part of our Universe?
Me: Well, yes.. (was trying to guess what was coming..)
Vyas: Amma, do you know how the Universe came into existence?
Me: You tell me. I think you know?
Vyas: Vishu created our Universe!
Me: ??!!**$$ What? Who told you?
Vyas: I know. He created the Universe.
Me: C’mon! I bet you know! Do you remember the big bang that we read about?
Vyas: Yeah, I do!
Me: So, what is this new twist to the theory?
Vyas: I know there was a big bang and all that. But who created the big bang?
Me: (It was not going my way, and certainly not my day): You tell me!
Vyas: It was Vishu who created the big-bang!
Me: Who told you so (I was dead sure it was a friend)?
Vyas: Thatha (grandpa)!
Good. Great. Tata. We’ll catch up on this too (among other things) a little later in life. When explaining and understanding a Universe out of nothingness ceases to be an abstraction for both of us!
