I grew up in an old colony like atmosphere, where the premises were closed like the modern day residential complexes. We did not have to worry about trespassers and our parents let us lose anywhere within the premises. Also because all heads of the families living in the colony worked in the same office, our parents did not really have to worry about our naughty endeavors, because in every nook and corner of the colony, there was someone who would identify us. Before we would reached our homes, our parents would be informed over the phone, about what we have been upto. But then we had the craziest fun during the festivals with dozens of kids forming groups based on their age groups and having the fun of their lifetime.
