In BTM Layout, I snapped this photograph late one afternoon:

sleeping on slide 241010

I was walking, thinking to myself that the BBMP had done a good job in renovating the children’s playground and providing new equipment….

But alas, it was sad to see that children seem so tired after school hours, that they’d rather sleep on the slide than play on it!

Let’s lessen the burden on our schoolchildren, and let them laugh and play like children should!
