I wish laddu was more serious in her studies,
More interested in history and geography than her buddies,

We want her to grow up and be sober,
Yet we fret when she laughs less and isn’t a loafer,

We want her to giggle and be naughty,
Yet to shine in her studies and be witty,

Aren’t we expecting too much from her,
When even for us the line seems blur…
