Stories of freedom fighters

Vir is learning the basics of our freedom movement at school these days since August is upon us. It's incredibly cute to hear of stuff like this from a four year old! Especially when the story gets modified a little by the time I get to hear it.

"Mamma, do you know Gandhiji was on a train once and the Britishers told him to get off the train because he was black. I think he wore a black T-shirt sometimes. When he said no, they threw him out of the train and also threw his luggage and he had to walk back to India."

You smiling at the thought of Gandhiji in a black T-shirt too?

I knew kids were getting smarter with each generation, but they are REALLY accelerating this stuff, no? At 4 i think we were learning our ABCs and crying for our mommies in school! :P

Ya...I think so too. But everything they learn is mainly through story telling, so it doesn't feel much like learning to them.
