Oh the childhood is the best years of my life! I can remember my Mom’s cooking it was unimaginable. It was a special day for us,we were celebrating,”Eid ul Fitr” it was when Ramadhan ended and we wore new clothes and were waiting to eat. My Mom was cooking,Pilaf,Kebabs,Beef curry, Lamb chop and of course the cucumber salad.The scent of her cooking was in the air.It seemed the needles of our miniature,”Big Ben” stopped in its tracks.If it was up to us we would change the time,so we could start eating. We behaved like a bunch of kids from a famine stricken land, back and forth we ran to check the clock which was not moving like we wanted it to.
Finally,it was noon and our servant started setting the table. At that point I’m not sure we cared how he arranged the plates.We were ready to eat,my Mom just had to say the word,we were all there in a flash to eat the delicious cooking of my Mom’s food.Those were the days,we were innocent,lively and enjoyed eating and playing.
I wish the clock would go back and let us once again experience the joy we felt when we were young.

I am not that much involved in social work.The times that I take part is when a family member,a friend or my colleagues want me to participate.It can be organizing a religious event , e.g. we have yearly events such as ,”Eid ul Fitr” after a month long fasting. We organize by deciding what sort of food we can take,and the organizers assign certain food to be cooked by the volunteers. This is one kind of social activity where I participate in. Also there are birthdays and other social events where we gather,take a present for the person whose birthday it is.

Another totally different thing I take part in is,I have joined the on-line course,where we study about an important person.It is a weekly course we are given an excerpt via email.We read it and answer the question given to us.In this we discuss comments written by the participants and interact with each other this way.
The third thing I spend a lot of time is blogging. I have done some translations of Tagore’s poetry. Other bloggers who like it, write their comment and I give my reply.I like this one I get to interact with my friends frequently.
