yeah i’m talking about the generation gap. the gap between the present generation, that is around 20+ age group and the next generation, that is the 8- age group has widened so much!!!
and i got this “enlightment” thanks to my lil’ sis few days back. i thought she was just any other toddler till one day.
it was an ordinary day and i had gone to my grandmom’s place for the holidays and the ‘brat’ was just something like 3 and a half.we were in the living room watching tv, when i just told my sis, ” oh my god the charge is so low in mom’s cellphone” and the girl, who was trying so hard to learn the verses of a film song suddenly got up and went into the dining room and pulled my mom and came to the living room and kept pointing to me and saying something that sounded like “dhachu”. ???
me and my sis were looking blank and ‘dachu’ in telgu means “hide”, and we thought she was telling my mom to hide the phone from the two of us (maybe she thought we were spending so much time on my mom’s phone???). when my mom asked if she wanted her to hide the phone, the girl got impatient and pulled the phone from us and went to a table nearby and climbed over it and pointed to one plug point there and pointed to the charging point in the phone, and kept repeating “Dhachu, Dhachu” it was then that it struck us that she was trying to tell my mom to “charge” the phone, after hearing what we were speaking!!! “dhachu” was the way she said “charge”.
quite a knowledge for a 3 and a half year old eh? thats not all… she can not even read a four letter word properly but can operate a computer perfectly. she can play any song she wants to hear or play any game. she has a good memory and can remember each and every step and location of icons.only thing she has not done is to surf in the net 😐
all kids nowadays are like that. they get to know stuff very quick and they think they are so grown up. if we tell something they’ll question us “how do you know?”. duh! we are 20!!! 🙂
kids these days… 😮
