When I’m watching a movie..what interests me probably more than the movie itself is the banter and innocent questions that kids put up to their parents who are at a loss for the right words to answer these questions..For instance a during a recent movie I saw when the lead couple were getting intimate , a curious 5 year old’s banter began : ‘Yeh kya iski girlfriend hai ? Kya yeh ek saath sote hain ? Kya yeh dono ek ghar main rehte hain ??” The poor parents just kept hemming and hawing to avoid these awkward questions !! It was quite a sight..But it also set me thinking.. Kids grow up so fast these days nothing catches their fancy for too long..they know tooth fairies are bunkum , they don’t belive in fairytales,gnomes and poixies don’t exist for them as they did for us.Instead they either mouth dialogues of soap operas and hum the lyrics ofsongs like love, sex and dhoka. or they are out there in the spotlight participating in reality shows where they’re dancing to songs whose lyrics they aren’t old enougfh to comprehend .Unfortunately Children aren’t child-like anymore,in fact they are like mini adults these days..Sigh how times change !!
