Let's Build Our Tent !!!!!


“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. “Pooh?" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's hand. "I just wanted to be sure of you.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Childhood friendships are often like the one Piglet and Pooh shared. Every day is an adventure and everything is a mystery. I distinctly remember the day when I first befriended my best friend Maya. We were in K.G. together. All students were given art homework to make flowers. While everyone had made them red I made mine green in color. While some of the other children laughed at my painting she was the only one who said it was nice. She even drew a star on my sheet. Since that day we have been best of friends for the past 20 years.

Dove has launched this contest called Guessing Game with my friend!  It requires us to tell about the various games we played with our friends. I am overwhelmed with nostalgia when I think about the various games Maya and I played together in our childhood. One of them is building tents.

 Building tents was one of our favorite games till we were in primary school. She lived near my house and used to come over in the evenings so we could play (read mischief) together. Usually we would play board games or hide and seek but when it was Saturday we would make tents. Building tents was one of our favorite games till we were in primary school. She lived near my house and used to come over in the evenings so we could play (read mischief) together. Usually we would play board games or hide and seek but when it was Saturday we used to build only tents. Maya would come over in the morning and the whole day was spent arranging tables or chairs and then putting a big sheet of cloth over them. Every time the material used to be different. Sometimes we would over the dining table with bed sheets and hide under it pretending like it was a tent.

There were no playgrounds near our houses so these tents were like our very own special playgrounds. We would bring all our toys in. We would tie my mother’s dupattas around like a sari and play ghar-ghar.We read fairy tales using a torch.

 I feel really grateful to have a friend like her in my life. These were some our golden moments. I will cherish these memories forever…….
