@Rihana, Thanks for sharing some lovely memories. The best thing about Chandamama is, it entertained several generations of kids across India and it has influenced them consciously or unconsciously. That is a great achievement for a magazine. Ah! Lovely memories! We didn't have ceiling fans then. We had only one table fan. If Amma restricted us from getting out of the house in the hot afternoons, we sisters would fight to sit right in front of the fan to capture breeze on our face and also make aaaa...sounds to enjoy sound vibrations! Either ways a punishment for Amma! So rarely she would restrict us. Our large compound, the flora and fauna there would keep us engrossed and safe. The Peechu mitai was unheard of in my area; we depended on homemade snacks, occassional ice candies or the edible greenery around!( Budding guavas, nector of hibiscus flowers, sour grass, rose petals and many more!) We simply needed something to munch and keep us occupied.
