November 14 ,2014 marks the 125th birth anniversary of India’s first Prime minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, which is observed as Children’s’ day in the country.On this day, I recollect a simple poem I had first written for my daughter when she was a little girl for a school recitation competition.Later the same poem was used by my son too and many of my dear nieces and nephews made the poem their own. Every time I read this poem it brings back those fond memories of their childhood. Today most of them are married and happily settled and some of them have little kids. The pictures featured in this write-up are of my niece’s adorable sons and their school friend.I hope you enjoy reading this poem:
If Chocolates Grew on Trees
Oh! What fun it would be
Cadbury, 5-star,Tobler, Ferrero Rocher and Lindt
All famous brands there would be
No need to ask for mama’s permission
And no need to listen to papa’s sermons
I can just pluck them and eat !
