Playtime with Papa
“Jab mein ek ko kuch lake deta hoon toh dusre ko bhi wohi chahiye. Isliye mein hamesha koshish karta hoon ki dono keliye ek jaisi chizein loon.” (Whenever I get something for one, the other demands the same. That's why I try to get exact same things for both of them together.”) says Vikram, father of Arav & Aksh.
As usual, Aarav and Aksh were ready to play with papa as soon as he entered the house. This has been a ritual where everyday, Vikram has to play with the kids after he returns from the shop! He would scoop up Aksh high into the air with both hands as he is able to touch the fan! The younger one exclaimed in joy, “yay”! It was when the older brother too wanted to experience this & soon enough papa would take turns to pick up each kid and let them play, touch and experience the same things!
