Aaradhya Bachchan, the two-year-old granddaughter of Amitabh Bachchan, learnt to write her first word yesterday, Tuesday, on the occasion of Saraswati Puja. The toddler was seen scribbling on a slate with a chalk.
“This morning early on the 4th (Feb 4) was an auspicious day, Saraswati Puja, a day of learning and education and a prayer to Saraswati the goddess of learning…a small prayer with the staff, and then the most important ritual…the moment of giving Aaradhya a writing utensil and leave it to her to scribble…
“It’s a moment of initiation of the child towards education and learning, after completing two years of age! Its tradition, it is culture, it is cute,” Amitabh posted on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com on Wednesday.
“Aaradhya picked up a piece of chalk and scribbled on a slate. The initiation was complete…” he further posted.
Aaradhya, daughter of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, turned 2 years old on November 16, last year.
