Tara put the book down.
The book was about people in the olden days.
“How could they walk for days?” she wondered.
She went looking for mother.
Mother confirmed that people in ancient days walked for days.
“There were no motor vehicles. Only the rich had horses” she explained.
“Some people had carts. However the majority walked” she added.
“That’s how they visited relations and went on pilgrimages” mother said.
Tara was so surprised.
“Weren’t they tired Amma?” she asked.
“They were used to hard worki so they were fit” mother informed.
Tara knew that ancient men built stupas and tanks.
“Besides they ate healthy food” mother said.
“Did children also walk with parents?” Tara asked.
“Big children did” she replied.
Tara remembered something.
“Amma lets go for a walk in the afternoon”
“Ok” mother agreed with a smile.
What did mother confirm with Tara?
According to mother why didn’t ancient men tired easily?
What did Tara want mother to do in the afternoon?
