Children's Day

When I was Child,

Once choosing the colour of a sketch pen was a tough task.

Occupying the window seat in the school bus was called obsession.

Getting a toffee as a birthday treat from a friend made our day.

Being the first one to finish copying from the blackboard was the ultimate moment of pride.

Hiding the answers from a bench partner during exams was not called selfishness.

When homework was the only torture & finished it soon, 
so could get some extra time to play.

Early to bed, early to rise,
was life's mantra, but how we loved sleeping late and having some extra TV time!

Owning a cycle was owning BMW.

To look good was only to wear our fav dress frocks for girls n half pants for boys.

We didn't need FB or a phone to keep in touch!

We thought all elders are ideal, when Daddy was the only hero and Mom was the only Best friend.

So what they say is right. 
"Everybody dies twice. Once when their childhood ends."
