If I were in Old stone age ..!
I see myself wrapped with a fancy skin of animal or a large leaf only covering some of me , holding a large stone near my holy rock shelter Bhimbetika cave situated in Madhya Pradesh.My cave is beautiful , it’s all protected , no rain can be a danger to me , no winds can uproot my home . I also did some painting on the walls of my cave . I painted what I see , the animals , grass , trees , etc .

But this was just temporary home , I had to keep on changing my homes depending on the favourable weather conditions and my food . My favourite food were never found at a particular place , I really liked goat , which used to appear only when grass was there .

One of my friend lives in Kurnool cave located in present day Andhra Pradesh . He told me the trick to fire . Near my cave is a valley of river Narmada , it’s pure and clean . Animals like goats , sheep which feed on grass visit here , I hunt them with the help of my friends , for that we have large stones , and pebbles collected from the nearby river valley . And then we all used to sit together and roast the meat of hunted animal and have some fun and party spending night around the bonfire.

We often go out to trees to chop the wood , gather the fruits and dig the roots with my special choppers in my hand .
My life was all about eating eating and eating . But we had to struggle alot . We had to make strategies to get our dinner and lunch . Some animals were used to be large and offensive . We used to hide in search of our targets . Used to sharpen our axes and tools and pebbles so that we did not miss our targets . After a long hard excercise , we used to get our meat . Used to fire the woods to prepare our dinner , we had no utensils 🥺. None has homes built to prove their larger names and fame. There were no casts , no hierarchy . All were equals , all were equally naked and equally covered. Livelihood although was hard yet peaceful . We did not have doctors , engineers , but we had friends . We used to eat together .
