Papa was showing some exotic location pictures to both the kids. There was a picture of shark feeding, beaches and deserts.
Avani: (looking at the sand picture) Papa see, its a beach!
Papa : No darling, its a desert!
Avani : Papa, mujhe dessert khana hai!!
We all looked baffled for a minute. Then realised, a 3 yr old's innocent mind, knows to associate the word DESERT with only the sweet yummy edibles. And the sand with beaches which she has been so many times.
Why can't we have different names/pronunciations for different things?? #ENGLISH IS A FUNNY LANGUAGE
