Pleasures of childhood have their own significance in one’s life. As one grows up, he feels more and more attachment to his childhood; It’s the best period of life. A child is free from the dirty and filthy noise of worldly life. His motto of life remains
“to eat, drink, and be merry”. The pleasures and charms of childhood cannot be forgotten. These memories and pleasures leave an everlasting impression on one’s life.
Pleasures of Childhood
The same case with me. When I recollect the days of my childhood. I feel very much delighted. It was a pleasant period which I spent in a high spirit. In my childhood, I was carefree, having no worries at all. I used to wander like a deer in the open fields, enjoying the natural beauty in the pastures. There are certain incidents that are still fresh in my memory. Once a street performer with two monkeys came into our street. He showed tricks of monkey and grabbed our attention. These were the pranks that attracted me. I fully appreciated the tricks shown by the juggler.
Incidents of childhood
My parents took me to school when I was five years old. My parents had carried sweets to distribute it among students. I had worn a new dress and my mother had groomed me with great care. Both my parents left me there and walked back home. I shouted and cried but there was no one to help me. My tears could not bring them back. The teacher talked gently asked other students to make me their friend.
Another incident that I still remember is a swimming experience. It was Sunday when I along with my friends went for a picnic to the river. Some of us were expert swimmers, but unluckily I did not know how to swim. My friends dived into the river and compelled me to do the same. I also jumped into the water. I was caught by the current of water and was carried away swiftly. There was a possibility of losing my life, but due to the valor of one of my friends, I was rescued from the current and brought back to the bank of the river. I was very much grateful to him as he gave me a new life.
Growing age and childhood
As I am growing in age, I feel greater attachment and craving for those pleasurable childhood days. Sometimes I am depressed that my desire of enjoying childhood again will never be fulfilled because those days went by. Those are the good old days when I was a child. Certainly, such types of pleasures and memories are things of the past but cannot be forgotten by anyone.
