Anjali - The First Organised Protest

For the first time in her four years and a few months, Anjali decided to use an organised form of protest. Miffed with the establishment that did not concede her demand of buying a toy guitar (and instead bought her a downscale baby toy), she used her new found learning to protest.

She recently learnt to write the words 'No' and 'Yes'. So she instantly drew a guitar and a large 'NO' on a Post It and stuck it on my desk. It glowers at the management everyday from the desktop, reminding me of the demands of the four year old, the silent protest of the deprived. Thankfully her protest, her non-violent agitation is now limited to the small poster and some sad faces she makes at the management now and then. We have to wait and watch the next move to see who gives in first.

Ha ha... what a protest!

Anjali gets her first supporter- ME-in her campaign against the 'establishment.'

Vinod bhai, I thought you were with the establishment. Dark days ahead it appears for the est. Wait and watch.

Artist, writer and activist. We expect no less from your progeny, Mr Paruvu!

There's more coming on this Chitra. I think the activism bit comes from her mother.
