“Hima, do you like atte or do you like maava?”
She did not answer that question. This was apparently the first time she was faced with that question.
He again pressed her, “Hima, whom do you like more – atte or maava?”
“Hmmmmmm......” she replied, “Maa-tte”, and started grinning!!
We all had a hearty laugh!
P.S.: There was no threat or promise of reward to her from either of us :D
