How we are all related!
Nilima started playing with Samir. Her mother
called Kiran and said, “See, my Nilima’s hair is
a lot like yours – thick, curly and black. It’s
good she does not have hair like mine –
straight, limp and brown!” Nilima’s nani
laughed and said, “Yes, isn’t it strange? We
sisters had thick curly hair and now our second generation has
similar hair.” Nilima was listening to all this. She thought, “We
are called ‘distant’ relatives, but, how closely related we are in
many ways!”
Special trait Whom does it From whose side?
resemble? Mother’s Father’s
Nilima’s Curly hair her nani ?
(grandmother)
You look exactly like your dadi’s
cousin sister’s second daughter!
 Have you seen a very young child in your (or any
other) family? Whom does the child’s eyes, nose, hair
or fingers look like in the family? Write their names.

Teacher’s Note : Discuss with children that we acquire certain traits at birth
from our parents. Some things we learn from our environment.
Discuss
 What is similar between Saroja and Suvasini? What is
different?
 Do you know any twins? What is similar in them? How
are they different?
 Do you know of twins who don't look the same?
Saroja and Suvasini look a lot like each other yet are
different. For example, Saroja knows two languages. If
Suvasini's family also talked in two languages she could
also learn both. We learn many things like language, music,
love for reading, or knitting, when we get a chance and an
environment to do so.
Sing a song in Marathi ! Why this funny trick?
Read about them and you will understand.
The sisters were just two weeks old when
Saroja's father's brother's wife (chachi) adopted
her and took her to Pune. Everyone in chachi's
house is very fond of music. Mornings begin
with music in the house. Saroja knows many songs in both
languages – Tamil and Marathi. At home everyone speaks
Tamil and at school most children speak in Marathi.
Suvasini stays with her father in Chennai. Her father is a
karate coach. Since she was three, Suvasini started doing
karate with the other children. On holidays, both father and
daughter start practicing in the morning.
Saroja and Suvasini look alike but are also quite different.
Do you now know why mama has his way of finding out who
is who?
