What was your favorite plaything as a child? Do you see any connection between your life now, and your favorite childhood toy?
As a child, my favourite plaything was a small, bright yellow rocking chair. I always used to sit on that chair, and whenever my sister dared to sit on it, after my right little tantrum, she used to give me that chair! =)
The connection between my life now and my 2 year old self sitting on that chair is very prominent. I loved to sit idly then and I love to do so now! =D The only difference is that I didn’t have any disadvantage of sitting uselessly then, now however…
Also, I really liked to tease my sister then and take that chair from her, and I still do it sometimes, with the slight difference of those things being purple clothes, one ring or another or some other jewellery and she too is kind enough to always lend me some!! Love you my dear sis!! =D
Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood.
Everyone’s aware of the fairy tales… Cinderella, Little red riding hood, Jack and the beanstalk are all household words.. But no, they do not transport me back to my childhood. Stories which transport me back to my childhood are the one’s which might not be familiar to any of you but were, and still are, very important to me. They take me back into the time when my Maternal Grandmother was still among us, to the time when I was properly aware of the relation of a Grandmother.
Whenever we visited her, we asked to listen the same four stories and she always did tell us those! 😀 Those weren’t just stories but truly they were my childhood. Today after reading some well-known authors, I realize that no books or stories can replace those limited edition stories of my Grandmother.. 😀
SERIOUSLY! I MISS THAT TIME! 😦
