So let’s have a Deja Vu with those by quoting some happy memories from childhood.
1) B'day Celebrations!!!
It used to make me really happy when I got all the attention, and moreover all the gifts. :D
My mom used to give me and my sister a chocolate every day after her day at work. I remember the name too… “Milky Bar…” Havent had any other chocolate than this one. It was my favorite.
It was an occasion when I used to get a new dress and it was a reason to celebrate too. I still remember how before the birthday or any festivals we used to prepare for the shopping. :D
4) Lunch boxes!!!
I am an admirer of good food since childhood and I still remember all my female friends used to fight that whose lunch box I am going to eat. :-P
I still remember this one girl who used to bring sweet sandwiches just for me. :D
Oh… at that time, even going to a local garden was celebrated as picnic. We used to take the lunch and water bottles with us and then used to eat there sitting under a tree.
Used to play cricket or some other game and had so much fun.
If it was some other city we used to be so excited and used to boast a lot to our friends about it. :P
6) Cards, Chupan chupai (Hide n Seek), Langdi Tang!!!
The best games we played, not like the present generations spending whole time sitting in front of TV with a X-Box. So many games there were and so many kids. Playing Cards were the best thing still and so were Sitolia, Gulli Danda!!!. :D
But I miss playing “Kanche” the most. My mom never let me play that because she said it is a bad habbit. :(
(Sorry keshi, I don’t know the English versions of these games.)
Omg… the best thing created by god ever…: D :D
I am an ardent follower of PRAN, the author/creator of Chacha Chaudhary, Pinky, Bablu and many more. :D
I used to read Nagraj, Dhruv, Doga, Ram Raheem, Krookbond, Bankelal, Chacha Bhatija and so many more comics.
Also Mendrek and Phantom were my favorite characters. :D
On my b’day I visited LANDMARK and asked them about hindi comics, but bad luck… :(
8) Ride on someone’s bike or own bicycle
In those times, it was an luxury and so does the car. I remember my dad bought an Ambassador in 1985 which he sold later, but till 1987 we used to ride on his Luna. :D
I had my own bicycle in class 8th (auto till then), and it was stolen too :(
But when we used to ride on someone’s bike it was an amazing experience and we used to talk about it. Hehe
There were so many other things which used to make me happy. They were small but beautiful. I really wonder nowadays when the children don’t know even the name of the kids who live in the same building, leave society even. We have been too busy with out laptops, TV’s and above all with ourselves.
But I surely had my happy childhood days. Tell me yours!!! :)
