Profile Picture

The Santa’s Gift is a short story written by Paromita Goswami who lives in central India, so Indian culture, attitudes, and ways of speaking flow throughout the story. It is about almost 11-year-old know-it-all Toby who winds up learning some lessons about life. He thinks his mother should make sure he has clean socks every day, but she is overwhelmed with her job and household duties without the help of her maid. She thinks Toby is old enough to take on some responsibilities himself, so she stops washing the extra clothes he gets dirty.
