Childhood

Remember your own childhood days. Whizzing recklessly down the street, we boys with short knickers, with bruised knees and triumphant facial expressions and a stick in hand wheeled old and disused scooter tyres.

We roamed in our own groups and made adventurous journeys picking mangoes and guavas.
