We entered Kidzania at 2 pm and at 9 pm, I had to literally drag my children out, they plainly refused to come! For those 7 hours, both of them had forgotten their phones, i-pads, computer games and television. Both had so many stories to tell me, the car was buzzing with their happy voices. There is something magical in listening to a child's description of happiness and success. My story, however, didn't end here, the next weekend, I was back at Kidzania - this time the 1.5-hour drive from Malad to Ghatkopar didn't seem like an ordeal, maybe because I knew that the return on this investment is going to be multi-fold! If you are a parent who wishes to lend wings to your child's creativity and imagination, Kidzania is definitely a must-visit for you.

Once the life of parties, I now could manage to dance for 2-3 minutes maximum and then sat down to catch my breath. The athletic Mayura was an image that I could remember faintly, felt no connect whatsoever. Fortunately, there were no medical alarms that were raised.

Today, I am a happier person, more positive and have learnt to be a team player. Its amazing when one meets like-minded people who are bonded in just one spirit - the spirit of sports and camaraderie.
