My daughter, the feminist

We were in Assam for the last four days -- a wonderful trip, probably our best yet as the trio we are. Something we should have done before: We hosted the entire family for one dinner (all 75 of them) and cut out the random trips to every single relatives' home. Here's one snippet of Miss Naya's latest. Excuse me, Ms. Naya.

I am applying red sindoor to my forehead before a wedding.
Naya: Mommy, what is that?
Mommy: It's to show I am married to Papa.
Naya: Why doesn't Papa wear it?
