Sar bada sardar ka

My grandma would often quote this saying ..
Sar bada sardar ka
pair bada ganwar ka
Which means "People with with large heads are intelligent (they're sardars, leaders) and people with large feet are ignorant (ganwar, illiterates).

This year The Husband got the kids measured out for their uniforms and came back with this huge-looking school shoe for Hrit. Doubting Thomas that I am, I took Hrit and the shoes back to school, sure he'd got too big a size (No offence to The Husband). However, I came back with a new found respect for him and awe for The Son's shoe size. Do look at that picture ... my doubts weren't totally unfounded, were they?

The blue ones are mine.. for reference
.. and he's just 6. I'm hoping my grandma got it wrong.
