Hama-Guri Misses Seeing the Mermaids

Sea animals, Mermaids“And that’s the story of ‘The Little Mermaid’.'” Mumma said closing the book. “Now you go to bed kiddo.”

She tucked Ham-Guri in bed, kissed him good night.

“Good night Mumma.” Hama said sleepily. But still tightly holding onto the sea horse soft toy his granny had given to him earlier today. “I love you.”

“I love you too baby.” She said. Then switched off the lights and silently closed the door behind her.

“Hey who are you? And what are you doing here?” Said a tiny rainbow coloured fish. Read more…

Celebrate a Happy Pi Day 3.14 Times with Hama-Guri

happy pi day, what is pi day, Pi numbers, Digits of pi“Digits of pi is a number that measures the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It doesn’t have an ending. So it is an irrational number.” Mumma said as she fluffed up the cushions on the sofas.

“No mum I don’t understand pi. And I don’t know irra…tion..al.” Hama-Guri was completely not amused at his mother’s interest at explaining what pi was. She had been trying for the past half an hour and he had understood nothing. Oh god! Why did she sometimes forget that he was just six? “I just know pie. And all your pi talk makes me want to eat your yummy berry pie.”

“We can do that too.” Mumma said. “But can we do something with that?”

“No we can’t!” Hama screamed. “All I will do is to eat it.”

Mumma shook her head and went into the kitchen. Maybe he was right. Explaining digits of pi to a six year old had probably been stupidity. So, instead, she got herself busy with lunch. And preparing that berry pie for the little one who had tried to understand 3.14 and why it was a never ending number!

“Is that really you?” Ma-Door asked as he stared at the picture of a tiny baby wrapped up in a blue cloth.
“Ya.” Hama replied feeling a little shy. These pictures were fun to see but he wouldn’t want his image of being the adventurous lad getting spoilt because of all these picture from eons ago. “I am sure you were like this too Ma-Door.”
