Ever since the outbreak of chicken pox, Sonny boy has been extra taken with the Goddess Durga.
Her 1000 arms, and weapons from all the Gods and her prowess and strength ..all that have made quite an impression on that impressionable young mind, and Tales of Durga are one of his favourite ACKs to listen to at night or whenever.
Since he's started learning to read simple words at school, I try to make him read word that he can while relating stories from whichever book.
Yesterday was Durga again, and we made him read the title
Sonny boy: tuh..aah..luh..eh..suh... talus? questioning tone and look.
At which the Acha who was on storytelling duty yesterday, corrected and told him it was pronounced Tayles.
At which he turned to me and delightedly exclaimed, "Amma, Durga has tails also!!!"
