Baab’s Tales – Part 1

Filed under: Family,Humour — Porcupyn @ 9:32 pm

(As related to me by Mrs. Porcupyn)
Baab comes home from school; is obviously puzzled.

Baab (head moving like a Spring Doll): Amma, how do I do it?
(Equally puzzled, with a touch of exasperation showing through) Mom: Do what now?
Baab (still trying to shake his head): Shake my head!

Mom gives some tips on an acquired skill…

Two days later …

Baab (animated): Look Amma, I can do it now.

Proceeds with a vigorous, inimitably (inimitable no more!) desi, head nod – northwest to southeast followed by southwest to northeast (axis points from head to toes). 😉



  1. LOL, the Indian Head Nod quantified! Or should I say choreographed and cartographed? 🙂

    “Indian Head Nod” – that sounds better than either the “Big Fat Indian Head Nod” or “Big Indian Fat Head Nod!” 😉
