The Daily Post Prompt: Carefree

In response to daily post’s prompt: Carefree

I sometimes wonder about a carefree person. I know children are usually easy going, they have nothing to worry, the adults in their lives take care of their needs regularly.

With the invention of TV,and all other gadgets, and the internet, perhaps has come in the way of an innocent child. They too like adults are trying to gain access to every form of technology to become COOL.

When I was a child, I was easy going, I was happy with the little things in life. My Dad did not allow us to have a radio in the house, for  he said, “You do not need any distraction from your studies.”

I was okay with it so were my other siblings even my eldest brother.

We played after school with each other, we did not squabble, we had limited things to play with. In our house marbles kept us busy, the little round things made of glass kept us busy.

There was a game we played with, it was called Pitthoo, we collected some flat stones from our neighborhood, layered one on top of the other and then we tried to break it with a tennis ball.

Here is a youtube video showing how the game is played.

This was our game that gave us maximum enjoyment. You wouldn’t call us COOL, but we sure had tons of fun and were as Carefree as  my little cat, who has no worries.

  1. I appreciate learning about Pitthoo. More importantly, I enjoy learning about the carefree lifestyle you and siblings experienced. Studies, play. Marbles. Sounds terrific.

    • Thank you so much for your comment. We didn’t have a whole lot to play with, but we were happy.
      Now a days I find the kids easily get tired of their expensive toys, and pressure the parents to
      buy newer toys to be Cool. 🙂
