We had often thought of going on a picnic but my mother denied because my brother was too young. She always felt that it would be difficult to move along with such a small baby. But finally we decided to go on a small trip to a nearby dam.
When I got up early in the morning, I found my mother already in the kitchen busy preparing snacks,often my little brother slept because he starts crying when he wakes up. My father had washed the van and checked the wheels yesterday evening. He was standing outside the gate becuase uncle Verma hadn’t come yet. Uncle Verma is a family friend of ours and visits us frequently. Soon, mother had packed the tiffin boxes and then she got my brother ready. I was very happy when the van drove away but still could not believe that we were really going on a picnic.
