Looking at the bare peeling walls of my grade I classroom everyday, I wondered how I did not hate school. But the fact is that I didn’t. My mind was rich with thoughts, and I lived most of my early life in the world of books. I thought I belonged there, and was one of the characters. Most adults thought I was crazy. But Baba, who introduced me to the world of books because he did not know what to do with a motherless child, did not think I was crazy. He told me stories, and encouraged me to think of the characters in the stories, to ask questions about them and to try and understand what it would feel like to be in their shoes. It was Baba who handed me a new book every Sunday and read it to me in bed.
