At childhood, everyone is cute may be lower animal and plant. At childhood, the kid to the mother and the mother to the kid both are good. At childhood, everyone feels good. At childhood, all the kids dream good. At childhood, all the kids look angel mood. My childhood, obviously was not out of that.
As the childhood leaves a deep mark in a person's life, there is a strong influence of childhood in choosing the favourite writer. Say, if someone's childhood passes amid the village, nature, river etc., then Rabindranath Tagore's name should appear on top as one of the favourites!
