I was 12 when I had a fight with a boy in my 'gully', who I used to play cricket with. When he was running away after our little 'disagreement', he called me 'chhakke' and ran as fast as he could.

Imagine it's the 90s. Paisa is really a thing, cartoon network is not CN and "Shaktiman" still spins (at least in India he did). It was also a pre-whatsapp era. No messenger. No Slack. OMG how did we used to chat back then?
When I was a kid, and I used to watch all those poor people begging, I wished with all my heart that one day when I am rich enough, I'll help all of these people. Make their life better.
