For some reason, Anirud hates the colour book. He is fine to flip through the pages of any book and see the pictures, but he gets annoyed if the colour book is shown to him. Sometimes, he is sort of okay with the colour book as well, but there is a strict ‘no no’ for yellow colour. Only he would be able to explain one day as why Yellow became his nemesis all of a sudden.
Anirud has got this bad habit of kicking people when he is in foul mood. As he hates food these days, he tends to kick the person who tries to give him food. Recently, he kicked the food bowl and the compliment was returned back in kind.
Of late, Anirud has become a poor eater. It is a big struggle to make him eat any solid food, esp. carbohydrate rich rice and wheat food. For the last month or so, he is living on yoghurt and fruits.
In the same lines of ‘Yaanai’, ‘Karadi’ (bear) turned ‘Kaadi’ and ‘Vaali’ (bucket) turned ‘Aali’ for Anirud.
No one actually knows what Anirud means by saying this, but he has been chanting ‘Hee-Haw Hee-Haw’ quite regularly for several weeks now.
Anirud doesn’t want Horlicks / Ovaltine / Complan. He has taken a liking to Filter Coffee. He gulps down more than half a tumbler of the beverage when he is offered one.
