Ek Do Teen...

When I was a little kid and would be down with fever, mummy would put the mercury thermometer in my mouth and just to keep me occupied count till hundred aloud.
“ek, do, teen………….” And on hundred she would take the thermometer out and check the reading.

It was always like this.

So somehow I came under the impression that when the thermometer was in, the counting had to be done “ek do teen……saw”…till hundred.

And so I got worried… "how will I do it for my kids?", i thought……………and thought and thought…and thought so much because I had still not learnt hindi counting till hundred…..i just knew it till dus (ten)!!

:D
