My daughter is two N half year old. She has grown up well with speech, language and recognizing people in our family and surroundings. In our society most of the car cleaners are from Nepal, and we use to call them “Bahadur“. Somehow my daughter started calling him bahadur whenever she goes to make a round with her father.
I spent most of the time with my daughter as I play with her, watch TV shows, and in the process I try to let her learn the things and she pickups everything nicely. I don’t remember exactly but when she was one N half year old she saw Sachin Tendulkar in an advertisement on TV and started saying “ye bahadur hai…”. I tried to tell her that “bahadur papa ki car saaf karta hai… ye sachin tendulkar hai” …even in most simple way… ki “ye bat- ball khelta hai… aapke bhai ki tarah…”. Infact I am a big fan of Sachin as he is a great player and I did not want that my daughter make comparison of sachin with bahadur and insulted his achievements unknowingly.
So many times I tried to convince my daughter with all my efforts whenever she sees sachin on TV or any hording. Till now she starts screaming “ye bahdur hai… ye bahadur hai… ye bahadur hai…” as she wants to irritate me… I am little disappointed with her.
