Even this challenging situation would ease
Service to mankind is service to God.
As far as I was concerned I didn't go to any school till I attained the age 10. Then I joined in the 7th standard through an entrance test.
My school days I enjoyed very much with friends. We were staying adjacent to a temple which had two large ponds. Evenings we children spent our time swimming, jumping, etc. in the ponds. We used to play football (using tennis ball) before going to ponds.
Temple festival seasons were more happy days for us.
After completing the school classes we had to leave that place and move to cities. However, even now those sweet remembrances are lingering in my mind.

I am the eldest son and younger to one sister. All my brothers and sisters settled well in their lives now. My father and mother stays in our native place.
All our brothers and sisters used to play together and my parents used to take care of us very nicely. We used to spend many of our holidays with my mother's father's family in a village. My aunt's children also used to come there. We are were playing together and enjoying the holidays.
Once I came to High school I had many good friends and we used to have very good competition among us for studies. Even today also some of them are in contact with me. We all used to go by walk to Godavari River which is about 3 Km from our village. in the evening and spend some time there and used to comeback . A nice experience. Overall I will say that my childhood is of very good memories and happy times.
I am the youngest among siblings. I have 2 elder brother. Most pampered, most loved child of family.
Even my Tau ji do not have any daughter,so they also love me a lot.
I am still a kid for all of them. However new generation has marked their presence, still I get most attention for my things like anything which is making me happy make whole family happy, anything making me sad makes everyone sad.
My every small step is celebrated. I feel I am one of the most protected, most pampered child.
We improve since my father get job and good salary before that 2 time eating was also difficult. We only depends on some how field work but My mother only take care of me so I am here today alive.

Playing with school mates, going to regular picnics, cooking in the backward for our dolls, hiding and calling the friends to find out and so many other activities with which our childhood and student life was full.
It is always nostalgic to remember all that.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
The main activities where I was present were group sports, exchanging story books, visiting friends, regularly going to local library for hindi and english story books etc.
Because of limited financial resources we did not have much freedom to enjoy the canteen or city hotels or restaurants and there was nothing like pocket money in those days to that extent. Anyway life was mainly to concentrate in studies and occasional calls from upper class family students for some snacks and tea and indoor games they had and which they wanted us to play there.
So it was nice still intact in memories to share here today.
Knowledge is power.
