My poor little 6-year-old nephew has been accused of reading too much. His teacher told my sister that he even reads during 'break-time' instead of playing with his class-mates. So what? He's just discovered Harry Potter and the Famous Five, for heavens sake!
Snapped at my sister for not reprimanding the teacher. She snapped right back at me, and said that she didn't want Rohan to be like our family. She wants her children to be gregarious and 'well-rounded' and not terminally dysfunctional social misfits.
Technically, I could box her ears, because she's younger than me and we live in India where family elders can do exactly what they want with, well, family youngers! Held myself back, though. Trying to be Gandhian except when it comes to alcohol, nicotine and seafood.
