Childhood is the period when all learn new things quickly. I also learnt many new things at that age. The skill which I acquired with much difficulty was cycling.

  • Though I was elder than my brother but it was he who started cycling before me and he taught me afterwards.
  • I used to get scared easily that’s why couldn’t try my hand on how to ride a cycle.
  • My younger brother had adventurous nature; he tried his hand in every sport and activity. When he used to ride his bicycle I used to sit on the cycle carrier and enjoy the rides in our society.
  • I showed my interest to learn cycling. My brother gave me push by encouraging me. We both used to spend our entire evenings in the playground practicing the cycling.
  • In a couple of days, I learnt to make balance on the cycle and with his support I started pedalling alone in a short span.
  • It was a thrilling experience for me when I rode the cycle alone without any support. I felt like a bird flying in the open sky.
  • This skill of mine acquired in the childhood helped me a lot as I used to go to my college, also, on cycle to keep fit.
  • I must say that things learnt in childhood help a lot in later years of life.
