THEN and NOW

Received a mail from my school friend in India who has joined her daughter to school and said about all the good things they are teaching the kids there. Though it is good to hear such things - cuz back in the 90s very few schools taught skating, music, etc. atleast not in our school. And I do not regret it a bit. I feel our generation enjoyed lot more freedom and had a stress free life. After school we used to play in the bus stop and then reach home tired and dirty and eat a nice lunch prepared by mom... then a power nap in the afty. Then some studying and then it would be play time; we used to jump over the compound walls and run all around the town. Who was afraid of kidnapping then? Everything seemed so good and nice. Now-a-days the kids are stressed out in schools itself and they are busy attending music, dancing, art, etc classes whether they like it or not... things have changed... I liked it better then though... I pity the kids of today...
