Like any other kid, for Mandela also the freedom meant to make merry and enjoy the blissful life in every possible way. But once an adult, the antics of childhood look like transitory because in an adults perspective ,most of the childhood activities are waste of time.As a grown-up, you have to step out of your comfort zone to earn a livelihood to bring the bacon home.It is only then that you get an honorable existence in the family and in the society.
