I have shared many things in my writings. Today I am going to share another story of my family life.

We were used to living in Government Quarter. We had spent an enjoyable time with our neighbors and colleagues. Today I am talking about 18 years back. At that time I lived in 11 storied building. There were 4 wings on one floor. We had a very good intimacy with each other. All have small kids. Every day we had a get-together at 11 am in our open place. Our life started at 6:30 am. My husband went to the office at 7:30 am and the kids also went to school at 7:45 am. After that, we had finished our home chores then we sort out a time for our chit-chat. Some bought tea, some bought pakora, some bought cookies, some bought cake. Our other neighbors also joined us.
