After my Amma's (mother) funeral day, my sister's daughter Pamithi (nick name: papara) asked me:
"mama (uncle), do you love aththamma (grandma)?"
I said: "no"
She was surprised and inquired "why?"
I told her: "I don't have heart to love".
She's around 8 years old and a YouTube fan.
With her knowledge she digged into me and asked : "Then, are you a Zombie?"
Zombie is a walking (reanimated) dead body.
"well," I said, "yes, I'm a Zombie"
"Really?" she seemed to take more interest in it and asked me "do you eat people's hearts?"
I hardly burst into laugh and replied "sometimes I do"
Then she asked the most important question concerning her:
"then, do you eat my heart too?"
I knew she meant it and did not want to tease her further :
"I used to. But, nowadays I don't eat small children's hearts"
She paused for a moment and took a deep breath to calm her self.
Maybe this story had fun in it. But, something stuck in my deeper thoughts,
"I don't have heart to love"!
Am I that stiff? Why?
