Yeh gate hai!?

Again one of a small incident that happened yesterday night after the cold drink - chocolate incident. We were sitting in our bedroom with the AC on. Betu was going out or coming in every few minutes and would leave the door ajar. I was busy reading an article in an old newspaper lying around and I guess was so engrossed in it that I incorrectly told him to "Gate band kar do. AC chal raha hai"(Please shut the gate. AC is switched on).

With a big frown on his face he comes real close to me and asks in a stern voice "Gate? Gate kahan hai?" "Yeh gate hai? (pointing at the door)" "Yeh door hai!" :D

So I had to rephrase my statement and say it correctly as "Please shut the door" and then only he proceeded to shut it.

*Sigh* everyday I think I know why the phrase "Child is the father of man" was coined. Don't you too?
