“Rewa, don’t put that sticker in your mouth. It’s not supposed to be eaten”
Rewa “NO! I want the sky in my mouth!”
From Sonika, Amma to 2 year old Rewa comes this dialogue just waiting to be illustrated:
If to your adult mind this is puzzling, you are not alone. Amma could not help but be reminded of Yashodamma who similarly caught her baby in the act of putting mud into his mouth. When she pried it open, what to her wondering eyes should appear but the sky, moon, stars, etc.
