A video compilation by animator Tarun Lak seems to have left netizens nostalgic after it beautifully captured the mannerisms inherent in children while growing up in India.
The 1.32-minute clip, which has now gone viral on several social media platforms, shows a child standing in front of a coconut water vendor and eagerly waiting as the dhoti clad vendor skillfully cuts the coconut. Captioned, “India Vignettes,” the clip features several excerpts from the lives of children growing up in India.

Viewed over one lakh times, the viral post has been flooded with reactions. While many could relate to the short clip, others praised Lak for aptly capturing the moments that reminded them of their childhood.
I love them all! But the tiffin sharing one is the one I miss the most! Working with other cultures (German, US) it’s very rare to have office lunch together and share from each other’s food. That one just hit home <3
