Akhil and I start our day in the morning with countdowns. Today’s numbers are like this:

Twelve days for Akhil’s school to declare leave for pooja holidays!

Fifteen days for Appa to come to Chennai with all the loads of gifts he has got for Akhil and kutti paappa!!

Twenty days for kutti paappa to come home!!!

Though Akhil does not have a correct idea of how long it is, he just knows that it is some thing like he has sleep as many nights as the count and when gets up the last day morning, things will happen.
