we slipped in the DVD and sat back ready to watch a friend's film.
shh, sanah, i said, hum film dekhne wale hain. tum bhi dekho, music par hai. Nahin to book padho. par disturb mat karo.
she disagreed, mummy yeh film nahin hai, TV hai.
is that why i am not able to watch the precious little pile of films sitting on my shelves?
edited to add: i confess, i have taught her to say everyone on tv is a joker. and she knows that films are sacred for her mother. and thats possibly why she made the distinction. but why do all good things that i teach her come back to bite my ass!
