About The Book
When the ardor to discover myself overpowered me, I found myself teleported to the childhood days where I was trying to find myself... Here, in the memories, I relived my tender age. But this time, the old happenings felt less like solemnity and more like shenanigans. In all the waggery, my Bal-Guru's presence was predominant.
Although he had arrived from the village to the city to acquire knowledge, he had earned the title of 'the sex-confidant' in his friend circle... thereafter, he was the one who enlightened all my friends.
Sometimes, he poured such secrets in the young minds that it made them eager to try 'adult activities'. He was also worried about the marital life of all my friends...my entire childhood was steeped in his energy.
Bal-Guru is the explicit sample of a carefree childhood, which may somewhere convey a 'bigger message'. However, it is also possible that somewhere, one might find oneself...
