The syllabus for akhil for this term was specified in his diary and I was surprised to see pre-writing skills also being mentioned in it.

I could’nt contain my surprise when I asked Akhil – ” akhil is aunty trying to teach you to do something with the  pencils and making you to write on the paper? ”

Akhil – in a matter of fact tone – ” you mean pre-writing skills amma?”

Now it was my turn to be shocked to know that akhil knew that there was something known as pre-writing skills, the term that I intelligently avoided while asking the question 🙂
