My father asked me why I am painting instead of studying (In his mind, I am in school and his little girl). I reminded him that I am no longer studying and am working now, and I paint as a hobby. He laughed and examined what I painted. I jokingly asked him how much my painting would fetch if sold, he thought for a bit and seriously replied that I would definitely get Rs 30. I responded quickly stating that seem to be a bit low, and he paused and said, maybe Rs 35. And we all had a good laugh together.
