Need a nudge? Here’s a story one of our team members shared with us:
Some of my fondest childhood memories are of my family’s Dussehra trips to Mysore. While everyone else looked forward to the pomp and fanfare of the festival itself, as an introverted child I preferred to stay home with my grandmother and play with my spinning top. Compared to the toys of today, it wasn’t very high-tech or sophisticated – batteries neither needed, nor supplied, no assembly required, and it didn’t cost a pretty penny either. There was something special about watching a piece of hand-carved wood spinning on a smooth surface, mesmerizing my 8-year-old self with its movement. Every little crack in the paint, every nick in the wood was a memory of a childhood well-spent. And while it wore itself out to a stubby little ball, its memory is something I’ll always hold dear. #ChildhoodToyStory
