Tara kept the receiver back in the cradle.
She started thinking.
It was her friend Amanda who had phoned her.
Amanda phoned to greet Tara for the New Year.
She asked Tara whether she had made a New Year resolution.
Tara had not made any.
She went looking for mother.
“Amma what can be my New Year resolution” she asked mother.
“That you have to decide darling” she told Tara.
Tara walked into the veranda.
An idea struck her suddenly.
She ran into the house.
“Amma can eating more Mallum be a New Year resolution?” she asked mother.
Mother was pleasantly surprised.
Tara is not that fond of mallum.
“Of course it’s a very good resolution” she agreed.
“You will get more vitamins” she added.
Tara was happy that she has a good new year resolution.
Why did Amanda phone Tara?
Why was mother pleasantly surprised about Tara’s resolution?
Why was Tara happy?
