Childhood!( Abhishek)

Two in one..
What and how is 2-in-1.
The post is, It covers both the topics.

It covers, both My favourite Childhood memories and my best friends.

We used to have this tradition, all thru the years we have grown .. Summer holidays would mean the great dhamal and get together with all maternal aunts and cousins in delhi @ Nani'z ( maternal Granma and Granpa)
and every Diwali would be the great dhamal get-to with all paternal uncles and cousins @ Biji -Papaji ( Paternale Granparents)

( yes I do not have Maternal uncles and Paternal Aunts..)
So favourate memories have been way too many.
With more than one pair of twins in the famili, ( my mom and my Maternal aunt , and my cousins from my paternal uncles side) the fun was always a little more

You can imagine Six kids with a 2 odd years progressive age difference, no one could stop us from jumping on beds ( all together) and yelling, to Throwing water at each other in the verandas in the great Delhi Summers till all water gets over..

TO the amazing walks in the night with Nana treating all kids to ICE Cream!!( I miss my Nana big time, the amazing person he was, he could make the dullest statement into the biggest joke of the world)
He has made all laugh so so much!

And the Diwali's used to be a "BLAST" in a big way. We used to get the Huge Basket fulls of crackers and, the night used to fall short to blow all of them, till our folks would yell.."Goto sleep.. otherwise...."

And my best friends are all the members of our famili!!
I have ADORABLE sisters ( you can spot four in the pic )
amazing brothers, and my uncles and aunts are way tooo cool.!! It is usually difficult for my friends to absorb the kind of amazing understanding we all share with each other.

NOt to unmention a Special palce for my mom, dad and bro !! ( yeah now sister -in-law too) Bhabi
( touch wood)

Task for Amy/John/Wacko...... You have to locate more than one person you know in this pic?( Pssst dont comment, just tell me yes or no)
