Answer: I can recollect some of the memories of my childhood. Although I live in a town now, my childhood was spent in a village. My father did not like to send me to school at a very early age. He taught me in the house. My schooling began when I was seven years old. On a fine morning, my father took me to school. He introduced me to the Headmaster and other teachers who asked me some questions. I was able to impress my teachers by answering the questions properly. I think I was a smart boy and on the very first day, I was able to make many friends, and have sweet memories of my childhood. All the teachers in my primary school loved me very much because I was a good student. I was also good at sports. I was the fastest boy in the school. On various occasions when I got many prizes, I felt ecstatic. In my family, I was the eldest child of my parents. It was an extended family. My grandparents told me stories. They gave me nice gifts at the religious festivals. Sometimes I went to my maternal uncle’s house which was three miles away from our house and I spent a very happy day there. However, I have a bitter experience in my childhood. One day while I was stealing star apples from the trees of one of our neighbors, I was caught red-handed. I was beaten by my father for such a heinous deed. This incident still haunts me. But, on the whole, my childhood was pleasant. Whenever I remember the days of my childhood I feel nostalgic.
