What goes around, comes around...





Years ago, there was a five-year-old girl, who never went to bed without listening to her favorite bedtime story about the Hunter and the four friends. Listening to it every day, she knew it verbatim. If her parents left out a single word, she would start howling.

The Hunter and the four friends became a terror to the parents and the book went underground quite frequently. However, the girl would search it out and the ordeal of the parents will begin anew.

Years later, the history is repeating itself….
She is the mother to a five-year-old now and this time the culprits are the ‘Three Billy goats Gruff’.





That is what I call ‘Karma’. What goes around comes around…Never doubt it!!

No points for guessing who the girl is though...


P.S: I am secretly making a list of things I did as a child. It helps to be prepared...right?!!
