But you know, the girl who stood first in the class was having cable connection at home and I stood second. But who will bell the cat and tell my parents that there is no connection between cable TV and education. If you are a child born in ninety’s, then you must be thinking of…………………………………………………

  2. Your blog reminded me of my childhood days when my elder sister was always asked to behave in a particular way and the younger one was always appreciated for her stupid mischiefs. However being a middle child, I felt that nobody was much concerned about me.
