**** As a ritual, i use to bring something for the children to eat after my visit to the CSD for groceries etc. One such day, i had brought sweet fennel seeds for the children. The elder three ate their share. The youngest was eating her share, picking one or two seeds in her small fingers and putting in her mouth. One of the boys had a brilliant idea to get hold of the sister’s share. He went up to her and said..’ Mehwesh! lets play… we are your horses , when we come to you you will feed us..’….. and when i entered the room all three were on their fours acting like horses, each would come up to mehwesh, who happily fed them her share of sweet fennel seeds….
