Childhood is that golden period of one’s life which is filled with innocence and freedom of thought. You’re curios about everything and you let your imagination go wild finding joy in ordinary things.

But there were some things that you used to believe in that if you think of them now, it’ll make you laugh musing what were you on the whole time:

Like spinach or dhaniya. If you eat it raw, it’ll grow inside your stomach and you’ll turn into a tree.
