The children came up with Aditya, Buddha, Cashmeera, D'Arcey, Ezhile, Freddy, Gautham, Harish and India. Frankly, I couldn't catch the C- name that Sundeep's kids gave for their plant. And I am not sure about the 'D' plant's spelling ( Trishna, who named the plant can tell us). I got stumped by kids, once again, at the pet club ducks enclosure. Watching the ducks Nitya asked how long do they live and what do they eat for breakfast or lunch. Nitya and other children had just come after watching couple of caged rabbits making a meal of cabbage.
Google search reveals that average lifespan of domestic duck is 10 yrs. And they eat almost anything - small fish, snails, worms, weeds, algae, insects, seeds and, at times, even sand, gravel and small stones. But for having to respond to such inconvenient questions, it was fun spening time with children. OMR Greens organized Children's Day programme on Sunday ( Nov.14 being a working day) because we wanted parents' participation. Our hunch was that parents have as much fun watching children having fun.Besides, such social programming generated a community chemistry among Mantri Synergy residents.
