The Amar Chitra Katha bug has bitten A & A just as it had bitten me, my sisters and my cousins a generation ago! And I must admit, the effects of the bite are very long-lasting. I cant resist an ACK even now!

So, here are some side-effects of the bite:

Last evening, Ananya was reading an ACK and popped a question,” Amma, what is a Sadhu?”

I said, ” Sadhu is somebody who does bhajans and meditation to know God better.”

I wasn’t prepared for her comeback, “So, Is Lalli Paati a Sadhu?” ( Lalli paati is how they call their paternal grandmother who also happens to listen to bhajans a lot!!!”

Talk about associations!
