Childhood – Gone, But Not Forgotten


“Those were the best days of my life“. How indeed! Now that we are grown up, seeing photographs of our childhood can evoke lot of fond memories – memories that will always be etched in all the cells of our life. Though you can live your childhood only once, you can always relive seeing your own child grow up. Or, it can be any child with its cute little gestures and smiles. Nostalgia sets in, isn’t it?

Two Childhoods

Two Childhoods

It is often said that when you grow old, you tend to be living your childhood once again. I do not know how that is true. But i guess, after having lived all these years of one’s worldly life, having attained all the wisdom and enlightenment of how death is the ultimate truth of life, people go back to their fondest memories of their life – childhood. Else, why would we be told that our life is a full cycle?


Can you see the candy inside mouth?

“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you gonna get”. But when you are a child, most of us are sure to get few candies. And as adults, those memories will sweeten your life. But remember, there are many children in this world, whose childhood is not so privileged like ours. Should we not fill their lives also with few ‘candies and chocolates’? Read one such story here.

  1. I agree Suyash……bachhpan ke din bhi kya din thhe……truly nostalgic.
    I volunteer at a government school to teach spoken English twice a week, to grade 5 students.

  10. For Christmas, my husband and I have started a small charity to buy new bicycles for children whose parents can’t afford them. We also encourage others to do the same thing and then send us photos so we can put them on our blog ( Sometimes they send the money to us to use here. We’re in our second year and it’s great!
