It was bed-time and Ameya usually comes up with bizarre questions when she is asked to sleep.

It was this today-

Lights off and am patting her to sleep when she plonks  herself up and says : Amma, why do we have to go to school because God has work?

My usual response would be “We’ll talk about this tomorrow”. But, this one really piqued me up and so…

Me: I didnt get it..What are you trying to say?

Ameya: Amma, God has a  lot of work…So, Parvathi brought us out of her stomach, put us all in different houses and gave us all a little bit of her work to do…she has given homework and schoolwork for us now….

Distributed administration or beautiful delegation of work?
