    Summer vacation offers the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind, and have some fun.

    I do remember summer holidays of my childhood that were always spent at my granny’s place. That was the best time. Our activities included fishing at nearby river, playing cricket, lagory, kabaddi and spending time with our friends. Granny always used to prepare some of my favourite dishes. Time used to pass so quickly and there was a note of sadness when it was time to leave.
    Thanks for the great article Joseph
