Childhood is filled with innocence. During the nascent years we tend to learn a lot many things from our parents, teachers and relatives. And whatever they used to say back then we believed completely. But everything was not true. Some were facts while others sheer rumour.
Today Twitter took us on a nostalgic trip with the hashtag #WorstChildhoodRumors.
Hence we called up TV stars and asked them about their worst childhood rumour. Here’s an interesting read.
Elderly people used to say if you swallow your tooth then a tree will grow in your stomach.
One of my close aunties used to not allow me to step out of the house after eating sweets as she used to find it unlucky. So she used to give me a pinch of salt and then send me out.
In high school, girls believed this rumour that if you ate 30 golgappas everyday you would lose weight. However, everyone just gained weight.
Eating spinach will make you like Popeye.
If your palm itches, you will receive money.
There was a great rumour and myth that if you get hiccups someone is missing you.
My father had always told me in my early days that I was adopted. This used to make me cry and seeing me cry they used to laugh.
