How loud can I get?
Sameer these days loves to talk loudly. He gets to meet his dada dadi and nana frequently. So in the middle of the day if he starts thinking about them, he'll go like this: दादा गए, नाना गए, बेबी गए (baby means Naman, his bua's son), पापा गए. At times he'll start calling them loudly, as loud as he can get. When asked kahan gaye, his response is: caar ghar (ghar as in home). Anytime the bell rings, and it rings quite frequently here in India, he'll start reciting the names of all the relatives he knows. The first name he'll say is Papa, next either nana or dadda followed by whichever name he hasn't taken between nana and dadda so far. Usually, by then I tell him if any of his guesses were correct.
