17 Differences Between The Life Of An Army Kid vs Regular Kid

Indian Army has given us more than just one reason to keep our heads high. They have been a constant source of afflatus to keep going. They never stop, they just don’t and that’s ceaseless. The life of their kids thus vary a lot from the life of regular kids.

But, that doesn’t stop the fun in their life. They learn the meaning of carpe diem the hard way and redefine the word “quirky”. See how 😉

1.  Army Kids have their entire childhood fidgeting around war stories, guns, missiles etc..

Regular Kids use words likes chacha, chachi, nana, nani, bua, bhoji with all the pride

Alcohol for Regular Kids is a far fetched dream and that too with your dad? Are you fucking kidding me?

13. Life at home is sort of a boot camp; there’s no label on the things that you can do or can’t do. We do it all, we do it together

16. Cat-calling? Eve Teasing? Dude, that won’t happen in Cantt areas. NEVER

Well, we teach our boys to take care of women and we teach our girls to be safe. It’s easier that way

17. The joy of moving to the same house in different cities; PACKING STUFF & UNPACKING STUFF. Every three years or less

Image source

 

The beauty of staying in one house for as long as you can remember

But you know what, it doesn’t really matter if you’re an Army kid or a regular kid. The crux of life lies in creating memories and everyone has their own share of awesomeness.
