    Thanks, dear kkrish, for your comment here. It is interesting to see how the same common thread of reading Chandamama and playing those games tied us all together. Right from seniors like @Cheenia Sir and @jayasala42 to @shravs3 and @Ammu2886! We may safely conclude that almost 5-6 generations of children were under the spell of Chandamama.:clap2:

    Going to the floor mill was another job officially allotted to me at home!:beer-toast1:

    Missed your comment, dear. It feels nice to know that even in the era of TV some children still managed to nurture reading habits.

    Hope you have settled well in your new home!:thumbup:

    I was waiting for your comment, dear periamma. Thanks for liking it.

    I haven't tasted the Paal ice cream. As kids we loved the orange ice candy and for Amma we would buy the rose milk ice candy. :) Ah! Cotton candy! The first time my father bought it for me at a carnival, I had refused to eat it thinking he was fooling me with coloured cotton!:tonguecrazy:

    Yes, periamma, this article has been nominated. Thanks.

    Thanks Mistt.
    Childhood is full of silly apprehensions and imaginations. If I wrote about it, you will be shocked as to what a stupid or unnecessarily imaginative child I was!!!!
