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


    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!!


    NO MATTER HOW BUSY YOU ARE , DONT FORGET TO


    LIVE THE LIFE THAT STILL EXISTS..........

    Yeah I fully agree with you.
    I too simply loved my school days. If today God appears to give me a boon, I would ask him to make me a child again so that I could go back to school and enjoy once again.

    Thanks for bringing back my old memories.

    Super ! It took me right into my school days. Very correctly said. When in school I always longed to grow up and be on my own so that no one lectures, no boring social classes to attend, no need to be scared of teachers like the Maths Sir !. But now, I feel those were the golden days of life which will never come back.

    Thanks dear for reminding those beautiful days.

    Regards
    Rani
