Does Anyone Remember Anymore

The pleasures of

  1. Going on a walk alone minus cellphone, minus blackberry, minus connectivity.
  2. Bicycling in the countryside on mud paths.
  3. Sploshing around in ponds formed by the monsoon rains when the sun comes out.
  4. Climbing trees to pick raw mangoes, tamarind, guavas or kadam ke phool.
  5. Plucking gooseberries (ber) from swathes of gooseberry bushes, getting pricked by the thorns, and delighting in the handkerchief full of gooseberries one has picked.
  6. Making balsa wood planes and trying to launch them.
  7. Playing badminton on a lawn at home.
  8. Messing around in chemistry labs and causing explosions.
  9. Reading novels in craft classes.
  10. Lying on a charpoy and identifying constellations.

I miss my childhood.

Being a child once a day is one of the best ways to de-stress :-)
