    Wish I were a kid again....
    Yesterday was a good day. My 4 year old niece had come visiting us, toteing her pink Barbie school-bag and a motley assortment of crayons and sketchbooks. The last time I saw her, she was only about 40 days old, wrapped in a soft cloth looking so tiny! Seeing her again just reminded me that I used to carry her around when she was a baby-- something that made my heart skip a beat.

    Trouble was that now she wouldn't talk to any men, no matter what. Dad tried his hand, but had to accept defeat. Then I decided to give it a try; did nearly everything in the book-- 'How to get lil' runts to speak', but to no avail. But then I remembered something that one of my other cousins had told me, and I decided to use that bit of info; to try a last hand. I knew that the lil'-one adored Shah Rukh, the bungling nincompoop of an 'actor'. Regardless of what I thought of him, I told her that I was a fan of SRK... and boy oh! boy, what a difference that made...

    I wouldn't have said this under normal circumstances, even if I were at the brink of insanity, but this was a different situation and I didn't want to loose the opportunity. We had a good time after that; couple that with my love for children and you'll know what I am talking about. Kids are so innocent, they have a small world, untouched by complicated feeling and emotions-- those that keep redefining most of our relationships with our friends and family and those that change the course of our daily lives. They either like someone or they don't, there is no in-between; no taking sides.

    I wish I were a child again....
