We wait for it every week and look forward to doing things in our own way- we are our own masters on a Sunday—I relax, enjoy and have fun and it does wonders to me I can again go back to school fresh and ready to work with a lot of energy and vigour.
Going to school, meeting friends is fun but still I wait for Sunday eagerly.
Sunday breaks the school routine, which is getting up early in the morning, attending the assembly, doing class work, coming back home, resting for some time and doing school work. Every Sunday is a day to relax and enjoy. It is a day, which we spend, as we desire, with some compromises. My parents are fond of traveling so usually we go for an outing on a Sunday. We also dine outside.
This Sunday we went to the Fun and Food village at Rajokri which is close to Delhi- Haryana border. My parents, uncle, aunt, my cousins and I reached the fun place at about 12.00 noon.
My father purchased tickets for us from the ticket counter. There was a long queue but he managed to get tickets after a wait of 15 minutes. My mother got impatient and wanted to drop the idea but the kids did not let her change the programme. We were very keen to go on the swings and enjoy water games. When my father returned with the tickets, he looked as if he had won a lottery, we all shouted happily on seeing him.
We ran towards the entry gate closely followed by our parents who had a difficult time controlling us.
The first thing, which all of us did, was to change into our swimming costumes and jumping into the water. My aunt made a little fuss saying that the water was dirty and that we all would fall ill but who wanted to listen to her when the pool was so inviting. Soon my father and uncle were also in the pool and we played throw ball. Oh! It was real fun! Then we went down on a slide, zoom Splashing into the water.
For a second, my breath stopped, I thought, I will drown, but up I popped, safe and sound. Then once, twice, thrice I went up on the swing, into the water and soon lost count of it. We spent nearly one hour in the pool and then we literally had to be dragged out of it and were asked to change our clothes.
We then had some home made lunch which my mother and aunt had prepared. My uncle got ice cream for all of us, after lunch. My father then took us to the other swings which we enjoyed but not as much as we had enjoyed the pool. Time flew by and it was 5.00 p.m. when we were taken to a restaurant where my parents had tea and snacks while the kids had burgers and soft drinks.
Alas! The sun had started setting signaling the end of the day. We were packed into the cars and reached home by 7.00 in the evening. Another treat was waiting for us at home, my mother who was too tired to cook, ordered pizzas and we enjoyed eating them while watching a movie ‘Home Alone.’ How I wish everyday was a Sunday?
But, I also wonder if I could enjoy as much as I do if every day would have been a Sunday!
