Another *Peter in the making

These days, its common to find Varun *’peter-vuttufying’. For instance, “Amma, waataavu dooving?” is something he likes to say often. Translation: Amma, what are you doing?

A convo

Amma: Varun is a ….?

Varun: Gubboy! (good boy!)

Amma: Varun is a very…?

Varun: very very gubboy!

Amma: Varun, where is the door?

Varun: It ees yeer (It is here- shows the door)

Amma:Very good! Where is the chair?

Varun: It is yeer! (points at the chair). Ummmm.. Where is the baashket? (eying his school basket, which is placed next to his anna’s lunch basket)

Amma: You tell me.

Varun: It is yeer! very very good!

Amma/Varun: clap! Clap!

Varum: Ummm.. Where is ‘innoru’ baashket? (looks at his anna’s basket. innoru- another:))

We have a laugh! And just then, the dad walks-in.

Amma: Where is appa?

Varun: It is yeer!!

      @Narayanan: By virtue of being in TN and due to constant exposure to Tamizh, I think it will be easy to imbibe the language.. I will be of no help here because, well, he’ll be better off without my help.. in fact am learning with the elder one:)

      @Charu: :))

      @ Tharani: I make him say ‘it’ every day now:)
