Meh, I agree wid u..<quoted text>
Hi Munni! ya slate pencils are available in most of the parts of india for writing(elementary kids) but Now, as the time has changed there are few shops left who sells them coz the no. of buyers have been decreased... the place where I live, there are no shops who sells it except those waxed chalks which I don't like(the last piece of chalk I ate was 2 years ago). so once in 2-3 months I use to buy mulatani mitti(as here only powdered packets available) and slate pencils(brought first time last month) which I can buy from some other place while travelling. but I must say slate pencils are so addictive, tasty and crunnchhhyyy!!!
ppl r managing mostly wid chalks available to write on slates instead of slatepencils!!
Yes, they r much more attractive n addictive!! ;) even if u eat a whole chalk u won't find it soo interesting to have another fr a long tym but its nt da case wid slate pencils!! I feel lyk buying more packets of it, wen I found a box is about to finish! but see the irony, both r used fr same purposes!!! ;)
