Age No Bar

It was dinner-time, and Lil D was at the table with my parents.

The sambhar had drumsticks, which my 87-year old father found difficult to eat. So when I offered him a second helping, he refused. I’ll have just the gravy, not the vegetables, he said.

Lil D pounced immediately.

Thatha, she said, why are you not eating vegetables? Don’t you want to become taller, stronger, and sharper?
