Ananya VeenaLast evening was Veena practice time for Big A( Ananya).

And Small A(Ameya) was getting impatient because she had just mastered a new skill called ‘Cycling without training wheels’ and couldn’t wait to show off to her friends.

And Amma wouldn’t let her go because Big A would get distracted.

So, Small A resorted to what she thought would help Big A finish fast. She started singing along.

But Big A hardly took it well. She tried her best to fend it off with “Shhh…” , “Keep quiet”…” You are off-key”…

And then, in a fit of frustration, her creativity peaked and she yelled, “CONFUSER, Stop it! I am getting confused!!!”

And thus a new word was born!
