Remember the days when you didn’t care about your body weight?
Calories were Greek those days. Food was to eat and the only thing to be noted in a food was its taste.
Remember the days when you religiously visited the Church on Sundays?
It was a habit. It was discipline and it was divine. Friends and family in their best Sunday dress and prayers for the Lord, good ol’ days those were.
Remember the days when you used to have genuine best friends?
Yes, in the age of innocence any relationship is genuine. When we grow up, needs arise and the relationships become opportunistic.
Remember the days when the fruits were fresh and foods were not frozen?
Nothing was contaminated and we didn’t need the approval from FDA to have a bite or a gulp. No one played with our food.
Remember the days when the movies were in black and white and entertaining for real?

Remember the days when kids were kids?
I am sure, you do.
Remember the days when what happened between four walls of a family remained jus’ there?

Remember the days when elders were called Sir and Ma’m?
Now, they are called ‘dude!’ Both of them in some cases.

Maybe, they didn’t have a choice or maybe they were genuinely in love.
