Ask any adult which was the most favorite part of their life was and more often than not ‘my childhood’ would be the answer. What is it about a childhood that is so precious, the memories of which stay with us for a lifetime?
My favorite part of my life is my childhood as well and my favorite memories of childhood are;
Being carefree: I remember life as being one big picnic. School was so much fun and something we looked forward to! With interesting subjects like Singing, Gardening, Crafts, Library Period, Sewing balancing the horrors like Maths, Chemistry and History. After school we rushed home to finish our homework and then rushed out to play. We played till it got dark and mothers started calling out for us to come home for dinner.
The Special Treats: Phantom Sweet Cigarettes, Stick Jaw Toffees, Double-Decker Chocolate Bar, the forbidden Raw Mango and ‘Ber’ dusted with salt and red chilly powder sold by the vendor outside the school gates. Lip smacking!
The Security: I grew up in a time when main doors were only locked at night, neighbours always had their doors open and their hearts too. The world could be trusted enough to let the children be free. The staff that helped out at home were never called, or treated as, servants but were Uncle/Bhaiyya or Aunty/Didi. That is how we learnt to trust people and respect them.
What are your favorite childhood memories? Do share them with us.
