Naisha the adult
Sonam Kapoor on the telly. Pretty girl.. isn’t it mama?
Naisha the responsible girl
The power goes off. She comes running in.. flip flip flip.. she runs around the house switching off lights and fans. “Mama,” says she, “Quick switch off the lights and fans.. power’s gone”.
It starts raining.. she runs from room to room checking if all the windows are shut.
When did she get so grown up?
Naisha the mama
The kids come out from their room with bags slung on their shoulders and move purposefully to the balcony..
Me: What are you doing?
N: I am going to the gym and bhai is going to office.
Me: Why aren’t you going to office?
N: I have small babies at home.. I can’t go to office till they are older.
Back from a trip I’m tired. I put on the television for the kids (who are of course NEVER tired) and lie down to rest. Naisha saunters in, “Mama mama, oooh mama is sleeping”, she whispers.. She walks out on tiptoe shutting the door behind her. “Bhai I think mama is tired… don’t make a noise."
