What do you think of a five year old kid who lives on milk?No food,only a feeding bottle three times a day...That's me,this pic is mine when I was 18 months old.How do you like it?
At the same time,I was a big "goon" in my friend circle.My cousin,who was a year older than me,was a weak boy.He always said,"Let my sis' come,she'll set you right."When I came to his place(during holidays),most of his bullies woundn't step out of their houses.Such was the goonda-raj.Even 10 year old boys weren't spared.I still remember how I bashed them up,dragging them on stairs by their hair.One of them was a Judoka.When someone told him that we must have a second duel,he cried,"No,not with her."
My parents really began to worry when I didn't eat "solid food" even after I went to school.I consumed about 3.5 litres of milk a day and threw tantrums if it fell short or didn't taste good.My "lunch bottle" of milk was handed to me by a domestic help.It was a daily ritual.One day,the class teacher wrote in my school diary that the Principal wanted to meet my parents.A pall of gloom descended at home when I showed it to mom.The Principal told them the next day,"Please teach your child to eat "solid food".When she drinks milk in school,many children complain at home that they too,must be given milk for lunch.Please try to understand the situation."Eventually,I stopped drinking milk in school.On one occasion,my mom found me drinking milk from my little sis' feeding bottle.This had been taking place for months.I was warned not to do so again.All the while,my poor sister(a few months old) cried for food while I never appeared hungry.My poor sis'!!!I feel sorry for her now!
My pranks stopped only when I felt that I must take care of my younger sister and see that she comes to no harm.I felt responsible for her and perhaps wanted to set an example for her.Once when I was in Standard One,I had stored water in all the vessels I could lay my hand on.The water shortage made it imperative to store water for the entire day.My mom was sleeping then.
Today when I look back,I find I was a very naughty kid and guess what,most of the friends and acquintances refuse to believe it. As for my sister,she's my best friend now.
