Five Things You Didn't Know About My Younger Self
Actually I have been tagged by Parinita Shetty so I am writing about myself now.Has been long I've done that though..
1.My birth was premature so I was a complicated creature from the very onset of my descend upon this planet.And since it was premature there were a few "abnormalities".I was not as healthy and height wasn't like other babies.Describing it to me my parents had an interesting similie to use.They say I looked like a "little rat" and by no means is it in relation to my character but to my short short body.
Yeah it isn't a great comparison!
2.I had a thing for sliding down the stairs handle.Well the handle was built only after I fell down the stairs which didn't have a handle before.Apparently the athleticism in me isn't new.It continued with the building of the handle.So I would get on the handle and slide down and balance wasn't great so again I would roll down the stairs.
So much so my parents considered moving to the ground floor of the house because of my "roll down the stairs" abilities.
Also these rolling down the stairs have a mark on the sides of my forehead,I think these are 3-4stitches.So I look somewhat like Harry Potter with those marks on his head.(except his craziness..No disrespect intended for Harry Potter fans)
3.Contrary to the situation now,I was a nerd till I was in class 4.I used to come in 2nd in the class only to the bigger nerd than me Somya Verma.(Boo her! Yeah am competitive since an early age!)I remember once beating my best friend back then by a meager 0.1% and being overjoyed because I continued my coming 2nd streak and envious of that girl again because well she had topped again!
4.Me and my cousin sister would buy a "toy" every Sunday from the local store and it would be EVERY Sunday,no misses. Toys would be of various types and prices.Its not necessary that the toy would be all manly or boyish but I would look what my sister liked so it "could" be a lil girly too. And yes it was "sometimes" girly.Example:Tea Set,Doctor set and my favourite game was "Ghar Ghar". (Enough embarrassing stuff for today!)
In my defense, she picked guyish stuff too sometimes!
5.You see how kids today would hog TV and not let go of it?Be it during meals or even before sleeping? I was different back then. While all my brothers and sisters would watch cartoons and other shows. I would keep away and I've been told I would never watch TV and would prefer to read comic books.(Champak,Tinkle and others were better doses of entertainment)
Such different childhood and totally different as a grown up.*sighs*
*Goes into nostalgia*
P.S.As an ending note I would like to attach this image of me and my brother as kids and I don't know where its clicked but seems like a hill station in East of India.Probably.I looked so adorable.(Yeah modesty takes a hit sometimes!)
