I still remember my first day in 2nd grade. It was a new admission for me in KVK NDA. I was kind of nervous entering the class as the 2nd A class was in a different building altogether. I had reached after the prayers hence the filled class made me more nervous. Everyone was staring at me. Those eyes were screaming and telling me as if ‘you’re late!’. “Don’t wait for people to be friendly, show them how”.My class teacher Mahajan Maa’m called me close to her and introduced me to everyone in the class. She was very nice, I felt someone knows me here.
The teacher asked me to be seated and asked our class monitor Arunima to help if anything is needed.

Life is so complicated, that I always refer back and wonder there was nothing wrong with my childhood.

In fact we can learn a lot even if we have grown up we have our kids or kids around us from whom we can learn.I always like to go back to my childhood and many of my friends say that I am going in my past. There is nothing wrong in taking tips and learning from past – isn’t it?My dad many times supported me as a child on my decisions and I think he knew exactly what he was doing at that…
