THE MISSING LIFE... OUR SCHOOL DAYS...!!!



************************************************** ******************


When

The school reopened in June,

And we settled in our new desks and

benches!

Whenwe queued up in book depot,

And got our new books

and notes!

Whenwe 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!

Whenwe began drawing with crayons and evolved to

Color pencils and finally sketch pens!

Whenwe started calculating

first with tables and then with

Clarke's tables and advanced to

Calculators and computers!

Whenwe chased one another in the

corridors in Intervals, and returned to the classrooms

Drenched in sweat!

Whenwe 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!

Whencricket was played with writing pads as bats,

And Neckties and socks rolled into balls!

Whenfew 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!

Whenwe used to

watch Live Cricket telecast,

In the opposite house in Intervals and Lunch breaks!

Whenfew rushed at 5:00 to

"Conquer" window seats in our School bus!

Whilefew 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 bunk classes & just sit in library ,

and we make close friend ship which might turn on some thing & something.

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... ( like the one I'm doing now......!!! )

Gone are the days

But not the memories, which will be

Lingering in our hearts forever and ever and

Ever and ever and ever..


Gone are the Days.... But still there are lot more Days to come in our Life!!
NO MATTER HOW BUSY YOU ARE ,

DONT FORGET TO

LIVE THE LIFE THAT STILL

EXISTS..
