Elder Men Stop Youngsters Playing Football In A Park, Desis Share Similar Experiences

It is a common sight to see children and grown-ups alike run around, do exercises, yoga, and other physical activities in a district’s public park. It is a safe open space away from the busy streets in cities. However, have you ever been shooed away as a child and asked to play somewhere else by the adults in your locality?
