Chip off the old block

So my daughter is sitting in the tiny garden outside my house, playing with two other kids, ok? So the eldest of the kids tells Rachu to hold her hands in the air. She just looks at the kid and doesn't do anything of the sort. Kid tells her to put her hands down. Same reaction - she just doesn't move. Kid gets irritated, starts off: "You don't know anything, you are a one month old baby. You don't know English". Kid looks at Sindha and says, "She don't know English!". Rachu looks away.

I drive in, park my car near the house. Rachu gets up and tells kid, "My father just came home. I am going to see him". Walks away, leaving bemused kid and a proud Sindha.
