It seems like it is shaving season at the Ashram. Today in the morning Suraj came with a bald head into the room, put his hand on his head and said in Hindi ‘Hair is gone!’
Yesterday I said how great the life of the children here is and each day I laugh about it how clever they are. Kanu, who saw that we three brothers and his own brother had their heads shaved, told Nitin, one of the Ashram students that I wanted him to take Kanu to the barber to get his hair cut, too. He said him to come to the office. There I was sitting without knowing anything. Kanu came in and informed me ‘Nitin is here.’ I didn’t know why and just answered ‘Okay.’ The clever boy asked ‘Shall I go then?’ and I thought he asked if he should leave the office and replied with yes. Nitin, who was standing in the door thought that I told Kanu to go to the barber and this is how Kanu got his wish: I didn’t know anything, and Nitin, thinking that I said this, took him to the barber, his head was shaved and he came back proudly with a bald head, smiling and laughing.
I had to laugh so much about the cleverness of this four year old boy! Now we have five bald heads in the Ashram. So take care if you are planning to come, you could be next!
