More or Less

“Ranju, can you get me two coconuts from that basket?”

Ranjita raced to the other side of the room.

She returned in an instant with the two coconuts.

Amma was pleased. “Thank you, darling! You are such a help.”

Ranjita glowed with pride. It was a BIG day today – her uncle Mahesh Chikkappa’s wedding! And she had a BIG responsibility – to hand over mithai boxes to the 100 guests after lunch.

More or LessBut where were the mithai boxes?

“Oh no!” cried Amma. “The boxes are still in the room upstairs! Run and bring them down quickly, Ranju.

The guests have almost finished their lunch.”

“Amma, you never ask ME for help!” said a small, whiny voice. “And I’m hungry.”

“You can help Akka, Vikky,” said Amma soothingly. “Ranju, take him with you, please?”

Ranjita frowned. Why did Amma always do this? Her little brother Vikram was SO annoying! But there was no time to argue.
