They taught their new friends games and songs from their
communities and also learnt new ones from them. There were a

our childhood memorable.

49. The days of Computer Socks, kitto sandals and basket shoes

and then pretended to eat it through the throat.
57. Drank Soda water, Ginger Air and Crush
58. Drank Water directly from the tap and even suck it out of the
tap if it wasn’t running.
59. Waited for NTA to show rainbow colour for 30 minutes, then

avilable Black and White TV
60. Bathed Unclad under the rain.
If you are smiling right now you probably had a memorable
childhood with the above experiences, but if you don’t get the
joke, it means you were born just yesterday.
