A painting and a lesson

Varsha is a sister-figure for Vyas now. They both share secrets, pull each other legs all the time, discuss books, movies, friends, cousins, food.. and most of the days, he goes with her to school, bugging her all the way. Vyas enjoys irritating her by pointing to every car on the road and asking her to identify! While Varsha is generous with showering appreciation on the boy, this one cringes and grudgingly acknowledges her work!

Varsha is learning painting and here is the first portrait (on canvas) done by her.

The jealous balloon on seeing it said, “Hey Varsha, I have drawn a Titanic you know!”. Amma was quick to acknowledge his painting of the Titanic, and gently reminded him that it was of course the Titanic after the wreck! Looks like an occasional puncture is needed to avert an ego-bloat! To remind kids that *collaborating is much better than aggressively competing all the time.

*Thanks to a senior colleague who planted this thought during a presentation.
