I am the eldest child in my family and was born after seven years of marriage of my parents.
I was loved lavishly and a single tear from my eye would ten from my mother’s eye.
When I started walking with the help of babywalker, my parents held a grand feast.
Noises of every type fascinated me. When the balloon seller passed through our lane, I would run after him.
My mother would buy the balloon filled with grains. It made a sweet noise when shaken. She also bought me beautiful toys that had many colourful and fascinating features. When I pressed the doll, she would speak.
When I was three years old, my birthday was celebrated with great pomp and show.
My parents must have celebrated my first and second birthdays as well but those celebrations have not left any imprint in my memory.
My relatives had brought beautiful toys which had to be wound up. I was admitted in the school when I was five years old.
My parents had carried sweets to be distributed among the students.
I was wearing new dress and my mother had groomed me with great care. Both my parents left me there and walked back home.
