Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties Real Estate. Tips for home buyers, home sellers by Gita Bantwal,Realtor at Re/Max Centre Realtors.: I have loved every home that I have lived in.

I have loved every home that I have lived in.

There is a nice contest on active rain . I do not want to pick a favorite place because I have made memories in every home.

 

I lived in Mumbai , India until I graduated from college and got married. I had a wonderful childhood. I lived with my parents and my two brothers in Mumbai India. I have fond memories of our first home. Our relatives from other cities in India would stay with us whenever they visited. When television was first available in India my parents were the first ones in our neighborhood to own a TV . On Sundays there used to be a movie of the week. All our friends used to come over on sundays to watch the movie.

Cricket is our favorite sport in India. When there were cricket matches all our friends and neighbors used to spend all day with us. Cricket matches were pa,he'd over five days, all day.Those were fun days.

The only thing I had to concentrate on was in getting good grades. I am truly blessed as I had a good childhood and great family .

I will post a picture if I can find one. 

This is my entry for active rain contest.

Good evening Gita Bantwal ,

How wonderful your memories are so fond of your childhood. A home full of love with lots of extended family sounds like a perfect way for a child to grow and thrive.

Hi Gita... when I look back on it, I also realize what a wonderful and "easy" childhood I had. We weren't wealthy by any means, but I truly had no worries except going to school and getting good grades. Much less stressful than what kids go through today.

Sounds like a very good childhood and I am certain that all of the neighbors looked forward to movie night.

Good morning Gita.  I like your attitude.  I wish I could say the same, though I liked some a lot more than others.

I think we all develop strong attachments to our childhood homes. I have both happy and sad memories and sometimes still have nightmares, but what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. It's nice you had a happy childhood, Gita. I'd like to see photos of where you grew up in India, too.
