Vacation: The Reward For All-Year-Long Hard Work

| Updated: April 10, 2022 20:45

The global pandemic became a vacation for all the students. But, in reality, all we did was lay on the couch and watch television all day long. A vacation in its true nature is a summer break during which eating ice pops, roaming around in the evening, and annoying mom all-day is the talk of the town. 

Sometimes, going back to the year 2020, the pre-covid era, is all I want. I cherish the magical memories I have made with my friends during my previous summer vacations. Playing cricket in Ahmedabad’s blazing sun and getting tan still remains the top souvenir. All my friends and I expect the same this year, looking at the city’s current weather.

Returning to worried parents was also a delightful bliss during these summer breaks. I look forward to embracing such small moments of absolute joy again in 2022. 

I remember visiting my maternal uncle’s farmhouse on the county side. Every wish of mine becomes a prince’s desire when I am there. My wishes of going to a trekking field, having fresh mangoes, and relaxing under a tree’s shade have come true in that dreamland. It is a place where the worry of delayed assignments, projects, or exams stays miles away.

In the summer of 2022, I wish to become a toddler again. A boy who cries when he falls down. A boy who does not know the difference between winner and runner-up. A boy who eats roadside panipuri again without hesitating or overthinking about hygiene. This makes me nostalgic about the past but excited about the upcoming vacation. Becoming the little Sonu from the grown-up Mithilesh. 

Mithilesh Khandwala is a class 6 student at the Anand Niketan School, Satellite Area, Ahmedabad, Gujarat

    Wonderfully expressed. Good going Mithilesh. I would advise you to be a regular blogger. At this age if you have such skills, then I am sure that you will be a potential writer in future. Keep doing the good job. I want to see you publishing books in future. I will really feel proud to see you as an author in future. Keep dreaming and keep on sticking to your ambition. You will be successful surely. Stay blessed. Download some of the blogging applications like blogspot or bloggers dot com. Keep publishing your blogs regularly. And then share those blog links at facebook, instagram, twitter and pinterest. Remember, most of the successful authors begin their journey as a blogger. Develop your readers ( fan or follower base ) and the day you find that you have good followers, publish your first book with 100 copies. Incase you need any advise, please contact me anytime. Best of luck.
