- Sharing your food
Your mom always packed your tiffin box with various delicacies and your friends always looked forward to you sharing the food with them. Of course, they shared their stuff too. After the bell struck half time and marked a recess of thirty minutes, all your friends used to gather at one place and open their lunchboxes. You would share each other’s food and talk about cartoons, homework etc. with your friends. [ Read: My childhood was not like other kids. ]
- Buying covers for your notebooks
It was compulsory to put those orange, brown coloured paper covers on your notebooks. A day before a new session started or you entered a new class, you searched frantically for any leftover paper covers. If you could not find any, you ran straight to the nearest stationery store to buy one. Unable to put covers on all the notebooks single handedly, you used to ask your parents to help you out. Only after all the notebooks were duly covered, you could heave a sigh of relief.
- Chewing bubble gums
There used to be a competition among your friends about blowing the biggest bubble. Sometimes, in this bubble gum blowing competition, the bubble would burst right at your face and everybody would end up laughing. Chewing bubble gums was not restricted to this completion. Many of your friends would chew the gum for hours and then stick it on the desk. Now when you think of it, it seems dirty. But that used to be fun back in the day.

Cross zero and fighting it out with a ‘pen fight’ were few of the many fun games that you played with your friends. You had to play these games with the very few stationery items you had and you managed to come up with a game pretty well. [ Read: Why Everybody Should Love Their Parents ]
