Our parents always tell us about their days, the fun they had and how there were limited resources back then.
My mother always shares how they all waited for the show Mahabharata on weekends and how they would never miss a single scene and would wait for the next episode to be aired.
I enjoyed discussing this book with my parents! It’s book 28 of 2023 and is a perfect coffee table book.
Tizistwar nou pays – Tales of Simpler Times by Nanda Pavaday is a collection of 24 short stories that will take you down the memory lane and will remind you of the most precious phase of life, Childhood.
Reading this book has its own experience. With impressive illustrations, it’s a delightful read that brings back many memories and the time when people were happy with what they had, the little things that made difference in their lives and how nothing was at our fingertips like today.
