  10. Each one of us has that dream somewhere to go back to the days of innocence, to our childhood! And as a child we had dreamed of growing up! Such is a life. Though it is always beautiful to look back at the fond memories of our childhood! 🙂

      True Shesha! We wanted to grow up fat but now I think why? Those days were the best! I guess, that is how life is, wishing to have something else than what we have!
