I knew it! There had to be a reason!!! March 9, 2009December 2, 2018 by Laksh After three friends forwarded this to me in a space of two days, I knew I had to have it up here. Remember our parents forcing us to do this as kids as punishment? Well! there seems to be a reason. Parents’ do know best after all! 🙂 Share this:FacebookTwitterTumblrPocketPinterestEmailLinkedInRedditTelegramWhatsAppSkypeRandom PostPrintLike this:Like Loading...

Reply This is HILARIOUS! I just burst out laughing when I saw the video and Divya was wondering why I was laughing so much – she has no idea what I have in store for her hehehe 🙂 Reply Well, I got it from 2 folks (and was one of the three in your list 🙂 ) – don’t have much to add. As Anila says, I guess our ancestors did know a thing or two – didn’t they? Reply ahhhhh……i can`t wait for my kid to come home from school now 😉 Reply Now, I need to figure out how to get a 2 year old to do this. I demonstrate, I demonstrate, I demonstrate, she laughs, she laughs, she laughs! Reply We used to do this when we were in trouble and told off for doing something wrong, I guess our elders could not explain it but knew why it is good for us to do. I really loved this post and it made me smile – good old days will have to start doing it again. Reply Oh Laksh I had a hearty laugh after seeing that and My daddy – an extraordinarily brilliant man made me do this exactly the 21 times, I then wondered why 21 times but now I got the reason? To add more, he would also ask me to tell some or other multiplication table when we put thoppukarnam. He really is a genius!! Reply LOL! Wow, this is so amazing! So we were actually doing yoga while our parents called it punishment! He he! 😀 Reply @Anila: I tried, my body is unwilling to bend! @Bavani: Did you get Divya to try it? @Akay: They sure did! Wondering when the secrets about camphor, nallennai villaku etc are going to be out on youtube. 🙂 @vai: LOL! Did you get your child to do this? @Dinesh: Good Luck!! The good thing is your IQ is going up. @Kiran: Started yet? @Deepa: Mult. tables and thoppikaranam?? 1 stone 2 mangoes? @Shalu: You did this too. I thought you are the next generation! ;p Reply Leave a Reply to Shalu Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
