Can Angrezi be far behind?

1. Varun at bath:

Why your dress small and daetty?(because I had rolled-up my dress over the knees and was wet with soap and water that he’d so generously splashed. So my dress is small and dirty!)

2. Sunday is holiday. Monday is schooly day.

3. November, December, all days leave (his wish)

4. I am helper. Will put this saamaan in dabbas.(when helping me pour the provision into the containers)

5. He has a free pass into every other house in our apartments and enters at will when the doors are open. When closed, he bangs. Either way, he announces his entry with: “Hellowww! Anybody home?”. Courtesy anna- courtesy Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone (2), the dialogs of which, the anna can relay in any order!

6.Here’s a song he’z come to love. Sings every word of it, but his style. Again, courtesy anna:

Heeezalillsaungaiwhotch (Here’s a little song I wrote)
Yoomawannusingitchnoffanotch… (You might want to sing it note for note)
Daunnworry…Beee Happy…

Vooooo.. who who…who who who…

(Don’t worry, be happy – by Bobby McFerrin)

His other favs. are Hotel California from Eagles, Rain by Madonna, and You are the music in me from High School Musicals:)

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’
