All I can say is – it’s differently cute (or cutely different..or whatever) :) !!
It’s fun listening to children especially six-seven year olds express their ‘high-and-mighty’views on subjects like homework, school, dolls etc. And yup, kudos to RJ Vasanthi for coaxing the sweet words out of them. Not every one can communicate with children, right?
This Thursday was no different – Vasanthi had made it all the more interesting by promising Barbie dolls as gifts for all the children who would be put on air. There was one little lady complaining that Barbie dolls should be given to girls instead of boys because they take better care of the dolls. That indignation in the little one’s voice made me chuckle aloud eliciting a has-this-girl-gone-mad stare from my neighbour. Wow... chuckling bhi manaa hain kya??
But what made me sit straighter and listen was the rendition of ‘Jhalak Diklaaja’ (Aksar) from a six-year old. Even Himesh Reshammiya, the music director of Aksar, would have signed her up on the spot without even the benefit of an audition. Here ended the fun part. On a serious note, it was not as if I was expecting rhymes, but is this a song which can be sung by a six-year old in the first place? And congratulated for the same?
Sigh.....kidz these days......(psssst...... now I can relate how Kini felt)
Blame it on the generation gap............
Or perhaps, I have to grow up :)!
