“Memories of childhood were the dreams that stayed with you after you woke.”

Childhood memories
Memories that will never be forgotten.

It’s funny isn’t it? We spend our childhood wishing that we’d grow up as soon as possible and then spend the rest of our lives wishing that we could go back. A person’s childhood is the sweetest, most innocent time of his/her life, as well as the source of their fondest memories. Memories that no one ever forgets. Here I am sharing some childhood memories.

Before Playstation or Xbox took over

We spent hundreds of happy summer evenings playing chupan-chupai(hide and seek), pithoo(Seven Stones), and hop-scotch.

 

Sweets that made our childhood awesome

It was a time when we didn’t worry about calories or fat content. If we saw chocolates, we ate chocolates Period.

Before we started eating ice creams of Amul or Vadilal. We waited for this in hot afternoon.

The proud moment when your Dad told his friends, “Ye bade hoke apne Papa jaisa banega!

It is hard to wrap up all the memories in single article. I have tried my best to cover as many memories as possible. But, as I am a human being and errors are “part and parcel of the game of life“. I might have missed many other memories. If you can recollect then, you can surly put inside comment section.
