Today, I realise that School days were the best days of my life. There was no requirement of earning money, working, taking responsibilities etc. My parents were always there to take care of all these things.

Radha peered from behind the wall, her eyes like two brown orbs, filled with wonder. Today was her day. A day she awaited all the 7 years of her existence.
