Mini Celebrity

What do you say when a little girl from class four asks you about your interest in writing? I of course, said that I am an ardent reader of books and love to write as well; and perhaps when the class would all grow up, they would get to read my books. All said in jest, because I don't think I would ever publish a book. But it was shockingly surprising (I wouldn't call it pleasant!) to see the entire class run up to me, carrying diaries, notebooks and even scraps of paper to take my "autograph". All because I am to soon become a high profile writer with little or no time to get back to my dear students. They pushed, tugged and waged war with ear other to get to me first. I was caught completely off guard and took my own sweet time to regain composure. The rest of the class was spent signing my name and giving out my cellphone number...


  1. How cute is that, Rima. :P We have a celeb among us now. I also want autograph. :P

  2. Aw! That's so CUTE!
    Kids can make your day sometimes :)

  3. This happens only with kids. I just recalled Albert Einstein's words...
    "There are only two ways to live your life. one is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is."

    Even a chinese book "I ching", has explained this phenomenon: "Man flying on air like birds, or walking on water may be a miracle. But Man walking on earth is a great miracle that we are failing to appreciate."

    Whatsoever, Best of luck to be become a great writer.

  4. rati, i'll send you a hundred autographs once i become something in life. deal. :P

    sugar cube, no matter how irritated or tired i get in school, i always leave smiling. it's truly a pleasure being with kids. much better than dealing with adults.

    razigan, i am a shallow person and words with depth astound me. there, i said it!


Please dont mince your words!
