Letter to Medha

This feature is inspired by Elise at eliseblaha.typepad.com. I plan to write a letter each to Medha and Madhav once every month.

Dear Medha,

You are getting naughtier by the minute. One minute you are snatching a toy your baby brother is holding, the next you are ransacking grandma’s cupboard for her expensive cream. At the end of a school day your uniform is smeared with clay or covered in ketchup. You weren’t this naughty back in the US. Is it the effect of India or is it because of all the attention and adoration showered on you by your grandparents?

You can copy a letter or a number beautifully but when asked to identify a letter/number, you find it so hard to. All the confidence with which you begin writing just drains out of you. Your voice becomes feeble. You need a lot of practice, your teachers tell me. We are practising a lot lately. I’m surprised you don’t mind all that copy-writing and related activities I ask you to do. You seem to be taking this as a challenge. That never-give-up attitude will take you far I’m sure.


On a more lighter note, you’re thoroughly enjoying going out to parties with your grandparents.  You are having a better social life than your parents are!
