Happy vacation at grandparent’s place.Annual examinations are coming to an end and summer vacation is fast approaching. Mohan and his sister Sarada wanted to go to their grandparent's place to spend the vacation. Their cousins Krishna and Laxmi will also come there. Their parents also accepted and they are eagerly waiting for the examinations to over.
The day of travel arrived and both of them got on the bus and reached their grandparent's place in 3 hours. By the time they reached there, their cousins arrived. Their grandparents are very happy to see them all in their house. Four of the children are very enthusiastic and enquired about each other. Their grandfather is very good at storytelling. The children wanted to hear stories from his grandfather every day when they are with him.
The village is a nice place with a pond in the centre of the village and a beautiful park on the shore of the pond. There is a very old Siva temple. There is a special sweet shop in that village. The Sweets made in that shop are very tasty and very famous. People from the surrounding villages will also come there to purchase these sweets.
All the four used to go to the park and spend some time there. Their grandfather used to get them the sweets from the shop. Mangoes available there are also very tasty. All the four are enjoying their stay there. They used to visit the temple in the morning daily. Most of the time they enjoy playing with the other friends in the village.
Their grandfather is telling them stories from epics and explaining the morals that are emerging from those stories. He used to advise them that they should be united always and unity is strength. They always cherish the stories narrated and used to follow the points told by their grandfather.
Days are fast-moving. Mohan's father called in the morning and asked them to come back as already 15 days are over and he has to join in cricket coaching and Sarada has to get admitted in chess coaching. That made Mohan very dull. But he can't say no to his father.
They decided to go back the next day. Four of them are very upset. They thought that they can spend some more time there. Krishna and Lakshmi also decided to leave for their place. The next day as planned they started their return journey. Their minds are thinking about why the time will not stop so that they can be with their grandparents forever. But they all know that time and tide wait for none.
