-Actually, my paternal; uncle shifted to a new house so my family visited there for the HOUSE WARMING party.

-In the evening, I started playing hide and seek with my SIBLINGS and cousins. It was my favorite childhood game.

-We even used to play this game at paternal uncle’s old house but we were familiar with every NOOK AND CORNER.

-On the other hand, even my cousin did not clearly know the directions to his new house.

-Even though we were playing at a place which was STONE'S THROW AWAY from the new house, in the process of hiding in the game, I didn't realize when I went to the unfamiliar place.

-I just hid there quietly.

-When even after 10 minutes no one was able to seek me, I decided to have a peek at others.

-Only then I realized that I might have lost touch with my cousins. As I was young at that time, I got so scared and started crying.

-Many people from the neighborhood gathered there and started enquiring about me. On seeing strangers, I got more scared and could not utter a single word.

-I started praying to God to help me get out of that unknown place. Luckily, I saw my cousin and my paternal uncle coming towards me.

-They were there to find me because kids were not able to locate me for 10 minutes.

-When I reached home, I got to know that I was just two blocks away from my uncle's home.

-When I hid there, no one was at that place but due to evening time, some VENDORS started getting there.

-That's why I was not able to find my way back home. It was a BITTERSWEET MOMENT of my childhood days.
