Chinna Durai (or Little Peter)

Varun’s English for snake: paamb

When he wants to say he does not want milk: I want milk vaendam

His response to my random instructions/requests in English: ummm…, ok!, or simply responds by nodding his head.

I sing to him: Its raining, its pouring, the old man is snoring…

Varun: no. appi padakudadhu. “iss raening, iss poning, the ol man is noning”.. appi padanum

I pick up the scissors to cut open the milk pack.

Varun: Adhe thodaadhe. iss dangerous..


Like his anna, he thinks English is all about crisp ending to sounds. As in ‘paamb’

Positive, and positively talkative!
