Yaadain ….


………………. I kept staring at this pic for so long …. It has invoked so many memories that I’m still swimming in them … and I think I will be like this for many more minutes …and yes the fan fight was real .. and me being the eldest exploited the authority to the fullest 🙂 

… wo bhi kia din thay … zindagi kitni saada aur pursukoon thi …. wo charpaia’n aur bistray bichana .. aur apni charpai pe kisi aur ko na letnay dena ta ke jab khud leto to bister thanda thanda ho 🙂

… garmion main khulay asmaaan talay sonay ka jo maza hai wo bass wohi jaanta hai jo soya ho …. un dino ye mobile shobile aam nhi tha .. na late night call packages na sms bundles ka jhanjat na mobile games ka alam ghalam …   raat chand ko taktay,  aur sitaaron ko gintay gintay aur hazaron idher udher ki sochain sochtay so jatay thay …. toot’tay taray bhi gintay thay ….

aur subhai’n itni noorani hoti thi … taaza saaf hawa main lambi lambi saansain lete thay …. aisa maza aata tha ke bayan nhi ho sakta …. murgho’n ki azaanai’n …aur chirrio’n ki cheh ch’hahat … suraj tulu’u honay ke waqt aasman ka jo rang hota tha  … ahhhh .. wo to bhool bhi gaya ab

… ab to raat ko sheher ki masnui roshni ki chaka chond ki wajah se sitaray bhi nazar nhi aatay …. Air Conditioned band rooms main recycled filtered thandi hawa main sansain lete hain … 10 bajay k baad uthtay hain aur sab se pehle side table pe moble check kartay hain .. aur raat ko .. haha .. kabhi yaadain satayen to aisi post likh kar so jatay hain aur aglay din wohi machinee zindagi ki dorr main lag jatay hain … fitay munh !


Gone are the days [Nostalgic]


Our Past Days

When the school reopened in June,
And we settled in our new desks and benches!

When we queued up in book depot,
And got our new books and notes!

When we wanted two Sundays and no Mondays,

Yet managed to line up daily for the morning prayers.

We learnt writing with slates and pencils, and

Progressed To fountain pens and ball pens and then Micro tips!

When we began drawing with crayons and evolved to
Color pencils and finally sketch pens!

When we started calculating first with tables and then with
Clarke’s tables and advanced to 

Calculators and computers!

When we chased one another in the

corridors in Intervals, and returned to the classrooms
Drenched in sweat!

When we had lunch in classrooms, corridors,
Playgrounds, under the trees and even in cycle sheds!

When all the colors in the world,
Decorated the campus on the Second Saturdays!

When a single P.T. period in the week’s Time Table,
Was awaited more eagerly than the monsoons!

When cricket was played with writing pads as bats,
And Neckties and socks rolled into balls!

When few played “kabadi” and “Kho-Kho” in scorching sun,
While others simply played “book cricket” in the 

Confines of classroom!

Of fights but no conspiracies, 

Of Competitions but seldom jealousy!

When we used to watch Live Cricket telecast,
In the opposite house in Intervals and Lunch breaks!

When few rushed at 3:45 to “Conquer” window seats in our School bus!
While few others had “Big Fun”, “peppermint” ,

“kulfi”, ” milk ice !” and “sharbat !” at 4o Clock!

Gone are the days
Of Sports Day, and the annual School Day,
And the one-month long preparations for them.

Gone are the days
Of the stressful Quarterly,
Half Yearly and Annual Exams, And the most
enjoyed holidays after them!

Gone are the days
Of tenth and twelfth standards, when
We Spent almost the whole year writing revision tests!

We learnt,

We enjoyed,

We played,

We won,

We lost,

We laughed,

We cried,

We fought,

We thought.

With so much fun in them, so many friends,
So much experience, all this and more!

Gone are the days
When we used
to talk for hours with our friends!

Now we don’t have time to say a ‘Hi’!

Gone are the days
When we played games on the road!

Now we Code on the road with laptop!

Gone are the days

When we saw stars Shining at Night!

Now we see stars when our code doesn’t Work!

Gone are the days
When we sat to chat with Friends on grounds!

Now we chat in chat rooms…..!

Gone are the days

Where we studied just to pass!

Now we study to save our job!

Gone are the days
Where we had no money in our pockets

and still fun filled on our hearts!!

Now we have the ATM as well as credit card but with an empty heart!!

Gone are the days
Where we shouted on the road!

Now we don’t shout even at home

Gone are the days
Where we got lectures from all!

Now we give lectures to all…

Gone are the days
But not the memories, which will be

Lingering in our hearts for ever and ever and
Ever and ever and ever …..

Gone are the Days…. But still there are lot more Days to come in our Life!!
