Stop being racist.

Yes papa",said the girl in her mid 10s.
Kitni bar kaha hai..dhoop me mat khelo..kaale ho jaoge- her father screamed.
Oh common papa ,how can one become dark by exposing to sun!!
After all,how does it make difference between black land white.,
I don't like this at all..stop being racist.
Her father fell silent, and ashamed too,perhaps he could not believe it was coming from her own daughter...
She has gone back to play.

Very good short story!
Most efficient use of words...

"Jaagte raho; Bhagte raho!" (saw at the back of a truck!)
For TISA members it could be: Milte raho, Likhte raho, bolte raho...
