In conversation,online chat that is-hep world you see :D, with my elder niece A1
A1: Hey kaku !!
Me: Hey sweetie 🙂
A1: How are things at your end?
Me: Doing cool,you tell me…
A1: Nothing much..school is going fine..right now it’s raining here…
Me: This side too it’s raining since morning and I’m loving it 🙂
A1: So what did you do to enjoy rains?
Me: As usual my green tea,book and myself 🙂 And what about you? Hot chocolate? 🙂
A1: Nope 😉 hot bhajiye !!! yummm 🙂
Me: cool !!!
A1: You know kaku,I’m reading a book-‘Ignited Minds’
Me: What?? really???
A1: Aap khush huye na sun kar?? 🙂
Me: Very much happy sweetie,very much !!!
When I got married and met A1, while talking to her I asked her whether she likes reading books or no. And the answer was a ‘no’ which actually broke my heart. Moreover,the way she said that ‘no’ made me all the more unhappy about it 😦 I thought I’ll try to tell her,may be coax her to read books…that how nice it is to read..that so many books are available…that you actually travel a lot while reading a book without moving an inch…I kept trying some or the other way every time we spoke since then…it’s been 6 years and I could not get her to even touch books 😦
But today when she said she is reading one and that too issued it from the school library on her own…my happiness certainly has no limits..moreover,when she asked me ‘you’re happy listening to this,na?’ tells me that she knows how much I would love that she has developed interest in reading !!! I felt sentimental…she has been my little baby since I stepped into this family and she will always remain one 🙂
This also reminds me that now I’ve another girl to put to this good habit to 🙂 Chirpy !!! I hope she gets into reading books quiet early..but of course I shall never force her into this but I would love to see her reading books with love 🙂
