Swatantra Kalra sends us the following report:
Reet is three year and ten months old. I have been reading her books since the age of three months; her first book Cow wants to sing a song is a favourite of all even today. I have always loved how she remembers the sentences from few books and keep on repeating them throughout the day and now in the nights she will says, ‘Mom Mujhe book read kar do!’

Nanhi kho gayee. I love sonpankhi. I love title. Nanhi is sad.
