Theory:

We have a short story of Ruskin Bond named: I Can't Climb Trees Anymore. The story highlights the importance of childhood days in shaping the character of a person. It deals with the nostalgic memories of the happy days in the life of a man and his present friendship with a little girl enabling him to refresh those memories. He knows that many of his friends have moved to other cities for their career, but he wanted to see his grandmother's bungalow. He spent a lot of time in the bungalow during summer vacation, and later it was sold to someone else.
 
The man came back to his old house, which is now owned by a colonel. It brings back the nostalgia forgotten over time. The man was to see the old jack fruit tree still standing beside the house for around forty years. There he met the Colonel’s little daughter. He shared some of his childhood memories with her. He said that he used to keep some of his treasures like marbles, coins, and his grandfather’s iron cross in the hollow of jack fruit tree. But he was not able to climb the tree. The little girl climbed and turned the iron cross on the man’s hands. He gifted it to her and walked away with tears in his eyes.
