Thank you for sending these.
Some of them took me all the way back to those events –
being carried in baskets suspended from bamboo poles
in rickety boats being carried upstream by sheer leg power
masses of people walking/fleeing from one place to another
all the time unaware of the danger as fear was something I was not conscious of at that time. We, or I, did not know the meaning of hunger as we always had food. In a twisted sense, it was the happiest time of my childhood – so many new places to explore, new skills to learn, like getting water from wells, or using feet power to grind husks off grains or rice, and then laboriously using a huge ‘sieve’ to separate the husks from the grains of rice. There was even a sense of adventure going to the woods to ‘poo’. It was always fun experience, leaning new things.
Thankfully, the horrors of bombing never touched us although I still remember being awaken in the middle of a freezingly cold night to be herded to a bomb shelter. Sirens were blaring!
and what is your war experience lof another kind like?
