1989 was a very eventful year in the world history. In individual life , what were we 20 years back? I remember, i was in seventh grade/standard and at that time my ambition was to enter politics and become prime minister of India. What were you thinking/doing twenty years back?

I was six, but I remember I hated school, made many spelling mistakes and other such things. Had a class teacher who used corporal punishment. Surprisingly, I remember quite a bit about school, but not much about home.

Oh! you hated school, well it must have been due to corporal punishment. At age of six, it is first standard, school is fascinating with lot of new experiences, probably that is why school leaves a greater impression on memory. The other thing is that memories are stronger for bad things(corporal punishment)(survival value), while good times are shallow in memory. Personally i also remember more of school at age of six. Lions School, Bagalkot, used to travel in Tonga, lot of fun.
