And as I opened the papers today, I was startled to see a former Madhya Pradesh minister and Congress leader Jitu Patwari tweeting that the ruling party had given birth to five “daughters”- noteban, GST, inflation, unemployment and recession- in its bid to beget a “son” called development. In other words he meant that five daughters were equal to one son!
Is that how we think of girls in India?
And so I decided that instead of writing an article today, I would allow you my dear readers to hear my daughter Varuna Clements Thalla, a former TV News Anchor with Bloomberg interview me, on the subject of bringing up daughters: So just click on the link below and listen to both of us. I hope Jitu Patwari also listens to this:

  1. This is an amazing conversation between a father and daughter! Be assured. Your daughter is equal to 5 sons. Perhaps even more!!!
    Contrary to some stupid people equating 5 girls to a boy!
    It is frequently mentioned that it is the mother that is most important in a child’s formative years.
    This is not so . Both mother and father play equally important roles complimentary to each other !

  2. I like it that you so fairly include the mother as the partner in the success of parenting of your girls.I too woke my father up from his sleep if I woke up at night. Daughters are their daddy’s girls usually.Nice.

  3. Today’s was unusual n superb. You and your daughter spoke so well. It was treat to the ears.
    God Bless you and your family Dear Bob.
