    The naughty granddaughter

    From morning Surya will be very busy in the kitchen, normally. She will be making breakfast ready for her elder granddaughter who has to go to school and her bus will come at 8 AM. She has to get the lunch box also ready. Her son will start at 9 AM to his office with his lunch box after having breakfast. The second son has to go to the office almost at the same time. Her daughter in law will also be going to her office at about 9.15 AM. Meanwhile, her husband is to be given a cup of coffee.

    In between her second granddaughter who is just one year old will be visiting the kitchen and seeing her grandma and she should also have a word with that granddaughter. How she manages all these works dot on time is very difficult to understand. This is her routine on all the working days.

    As usual, Surya is very busy in the kitchen and making the things ready for all the members on that day. In between, she felt why the second granddaughter is not visible. But she couldn't move out because of the works in the kitchen. After 15 minutes she somehow made some time and came out to see her second granddaughter. She is not visible. After searching for her, the grandma got shocked to see that little girl in the dish cleaning area. She is trying to apply the dish cleaning soap with a scrubber on the dishes there which are already cleaned. She is not able to resist her anger. This little girl made her grandma work for extra time with her naughty action. Even in that anger, she couldn't stop her laugh by seeing the way the little girl is sitting in that area and applying soap on the dishes using the scrubber.

    Important points of the story.
    - Both the sons have made their mother as a maid servant.
    - Her elder son does not ask his wife to cook food for them. He is an uxorious
    - Second grand daughter is just one year old but she regulary visits (?) kitchen where she is working .
    - She talks to her grand daughter while preparing good.
    - Daughter in law is a careless mother.She does not care of her children. Little child was found in dish cleaning.
    - Why did grandmother get angry at little child ? She seems to be a short-tempered old woman.

    Be indian and buy Indian.

    The author has penned down a well narrated content connecting to the photo contest and the heading chosen was apt as the naughty grand daughter has the say.

    A nice story has been resented by the author for the TOW contest. This is true granddaughters or grandsons of the family quite naughty by their behavior. Many times elders feel Wenger on them but at the same time, they feel loving feels for their notorious activities. These children actually are the brightness of the family, even if a single day they fall sick or do not do the same notorious activities other family members missed it.
