I am teaching the kids 2 new language scripts, Tamil and Telugu…the rule? learn 4 letters of each alphabet everyday.
So, Day 2 – I opened the book and said- Let’s see if you remember what you learnt yesterday.
In our mother tongue, I said- ‘paarkama ezhudanum’ – which means ‘you have to write it without referring to or looking at your previous day’s work’ but literally translates to ‘write without seeing’.
So, imagine our amusement when we saw Ameya scribbling something in her notebook with her eyes closed!!!
