Begining of my life train

I spent most of my childhood with my grandparents in village. I loved to stay there forever even though as I was a child I had no idea what 'forever' is. So I used to think, "all the children who played with me would be the same age always, every day after lunch we would come out of home with a joy to find the other childdren to play until evening, every afternoon I would go to the market with my grandfather." Now I believe it was quite right for a child to think like that who did not know what the sorrow of losing someone, or what death is, or what love is. Who only knew what the joy of playing all afternoon is, how innocent it is to find happiness to talk with another child who she quarrelled with while playing, who did not face any disparity while playing with many other female and male children where she did not see people think boys are superior than girls ... Who would burst in cherish in various games, would become sad when she had any misunderstanding with another player, and after the game, in the evening, their anger would come to an end of sweet promise to not do the same thing the next day........... But every day it happened!!!

I always went to school with three of my male classmates because they were the only friends who lived in the same area as I was. I had enormous fun with them, and loved studying. Now when I think of my childhood I feel like it was a heaven for me which I never wanted to miss. Keeping in mind that I would not or did not want to grow up any more, many days passed. I came to realize life is not like what I thought would be. One day my father brought me to city where my parents and siblings were living. It did not affect me because every thing in the city fascinated me even though I had a secret hope to go back to village.
