The other day as I was walking back home I overheard a conversation between a young mother and her seven/ eight year old daughter. Ahead of them two African young men were walking, the little girl asked her mother, ‘Why do these men have such coil like curly hair, we don’t have such frizzy hair?’ Mom replied, “All Africans have such hair”; very much ignoring the reason. The mother’s answer was like a stab at all such queries made by children, at all things they see around them and learn in their own space, in their own ways. I was so inclined to give the reason. The question was very much a geographical query.
