"Naan Kariyeriten, neenga innum karaiyerama nikareley?"
Barathiraja, Maniratnam and all others who featured immortal lines by children in their films...I salute you. For your understanding of children and their mindset. Of their keenness in keeping things short, simple and straight.
I was cleaning the Puja room for Janmashtami celebrations. V caught me wiping the pictures and asked why. Without thinking I mumbled, "For Janmashtami"
Me: Lord Krishna's Happy Birthday
Me: We are performing a Puja today.
V: (Thinking for a while): Dirtya irukarathunala clean pannaraya? (Are you cleaning because the pictures are dirty?)
