I am the youngest among four siblings. I have three elder sisters who lorded over me most of the time. They would treat me differently at different times of the day. It was quite strange by day theyd bully me as much as they could, but at night, they would mollycoddle me.
I was very shy as a child. I remember my teacher would write reticent on my report card. Then, I didnt even know what it meant. They couldnt understand why I wasnt naughty. But once I went for a school trip and after that I went berserk and became very naughty. I still dont know what brought about the change.
In school I was good in singing and dramatics and wrote reasonably well. I still write monographs, poems and other pieces. I always knew that I was intelligent and that my report card didnt reflect my abilities. I was never the kind of person who would pore over books and study late into the night. I loved history very much, which was surprising because everybody else hated it. I loved seeing the sketches of kings and queens and imagining how they must have been. I was fascinated by what had happened hundreds of years ago.
I think I had the greatest fun in school. I really enjoyed my schooldays. I was naughty but not so naughty that I would get punished. I would get into trouble but, at the same time, would get out of it very soon, too.
