Little Arvind's Love for freebies... :)

January 4th, 2010...

This is an anecdote about my close friend Padma and her son, Arvind, which happened about 20 years ago.

Arvind was a 3 year old boy. He was very interested to go with his parents for shopping. Sometimes, my friend used to buy certain things for which the dealer used to give "free" products as incentive. Sometimes the free product was a spoon, or a doll or a puzzle book and so on.

Once my friend purchased a branded refined oil packet.

When the shopkeeper gave her the oil packet, our little boy Arvind immediately shouted to his mom, "Ma, see, he has to give us something free for it is written on the packet."

He could only read and recognize the word free and not the word previous to it....

Guess what the word was...?? The words were "Cholesterol free"!!!
