The #BachpanWithFlinto blogger contest is a great chance to indulge in some childhood nostalgia; plus, every single entry wins a Flinto box. How cool is that?
Remember the good old days? Yes, the time when you were still a child playing hide-and-seek; seven stones, or lock-and-key with your friends; gulping down yummy golgappas at a mela; waiting for a letter from a near-and-dear one; watching ‘He-Man’ on Doordarshan; or watering the garden along with your mom or dad.
Take a walk through your memory lane. You sure did a lot of things – played more, learnt more, explored more, and had more time than your kids do now.
Do you wish there is one thing from your childhood that little ones today could do? Then, here’s your chance to tell us about it. Pick out just one such thing you did that kids today are missing out on. Write about it.
This contest is brought to you in association with Flintobox. Flintobox is trusted by more than 72,000 parents to enhance their children’s developmental skills. Undoubtedly, Flintobox is one of the best educational gifts for children in the age group of 3-7 in India today.
We know you’ve been awaiting the results eagerly, and here they are! The entire team here enjoyed reading all your entries, and had a tough time picking out only a few to win.

Women in India enter into the institution of marriage not with any guarantee but just some faith, and any man who has a healthy and safe relationship with his wife would understand the gravity of the situation and welcome such a law.
Trigger Warning: This deals with rape, marital rape, and violence against women, and may be triggering for survivors.
The Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1983 has made a statutory provision in the face of Section.114 (A) of the Evidence Act, which states that if the victim girl says that she did no consent to the sexual intercourse, the Court shall presume that she did not consent.
Passive giving in is not consent. However, it is unclear why the above rule is not applied to cases in marriage where clear consent is not given by the wife.
The criticism for Gehraiyaan has irked many women, and given incels, moral policers, and envious trolls the opportunity to harass an actress who has finally played the most realistic character in her career.
I’m sorry that I’m late to the party. But I finally decided to write on why I think Deepika’s character in Gehraiyaan is actually one of her best chosen roles.
Disclaimer: Deepika is a tall, good looking actress, who I never really considered a phenomenal or decent actress. After noticing the hullabaloo around this film, I dared to watch it on Amazon Prime. To be frank, the movie offered me nothing interesting or new, and as someone who is both a movie and TV show buff, I didn’t even lift an eyebrow. However, if there was one thing that I found realistic in the film, it was Alisha’s character. No, this is not another review, but a character analysis of the female protagonist in this film. Honestly, this is one of the most real characters that I have seen this actress play.
A woman hailing from a middle- class family, trying to make ends meet, while her incompetent father and partner have failed to be financial heads of the family. They have failed to keep the family afloat, and Alisha’s character has no choice but to take on the responsibility.
