I want to be like “the river” declared my daughter, as we studied a poem by that title. On enquiring, she gave 2 reasons. One that the river was addressed as "she" and, another that the river does not choose a place to camp. As I tried to explain, I informed her that it could be that the river i.e nadhi (in Sanskrit) is feminine, hence addressed as she. To be agile is our basic nature and a need in the world we live in, so it is good to be that.
