Dhruv’s sickness has held us captive in the hot summer of North India and we couldn’t return home to the cool weather on the said date. While the last 3 days were kind of difficult for him with severe dehydration and stomach infection, there is something he has discovered lying on the bed and recovering and that is Google voice search.
As soon as he is able to muster some energy, he can be heard speaking different combinations into the phone and watching the images. Cars top his search, undoubtedly, followed by his latest interest – sea snakes. He has got intrigued with the fact that snakes can thrive in the sea as well. His new questions are-
What do sea snakes do to people?
Do they bite people on the sea beach?
Are they poisonous?
Do they eat fish?
When I conveyed my inability to answer his questions accurately since I never bothered to find out about sea snakes, he took to research about them himself. This morning he took to educate me about them based upon the video he was watching. One point that he harped on bringing to my notice was a visual of a nervous snake – “Mummy, snakes can be nervous too.”
