If there is anything that I miss the most in my life, it is school. When I make those occasional visits to our school premises I have an acute attack of nostalgia, and it is way too overwhelming for it to fade away soon. It stays with me for days and I can’t help but relive all those wonderful moments.
I remember this certain someone who wanted to be a terrorist, who by the way had the capacity to cry and make a pool of water that can drown an ant, and who was a notorious biter 😀 . I remember the loudest one among us who was also a teachers pet. 🙂 I can never forget the time when love was in the air and boys would ask girls out for dates and I will always remember the drama that followed. 😉
I can go on forever about our random acts of silliness. I refuse to accept the fact that we are all grown up. Even if most of us are stepping into wedlock, I still believe we are those crazy, silly, teenagers at heart. I love you all so much cause you all still make me smile. No matter how many “battles” we fought against each other we still managed to be friends and will be forever.
For all my mates who are getting hitched soon, here is an excerpt from an article that I would love to share with you guys. Wise Words by a Wise Man which I hope will help you.
Marriage is serious business. It is not child’s play. It comes with responsibilities. Putting it quite simply, it is a lot of give and take – more give and take.
Build your partnership on the firm foundation of friendship.Be each other’s best friend. Friendship can only be between equals, where there is mutual love, warmth and respect. No one is superior or inferior. Understand that husband and wife both have a role to play. Their roles are not interchangeable. A woman must not try to become a man and vice versa. There must be total loyalty, trust and confidence in each other. No selfishness and petty ego issues here. Remember the other must come first – always and every time
Learn to cheerfully bear the pinpricks that your respective family members may give you from time to time. Learn to be patient with all. Learn to be tolerant and forgiving.
There is no easy way out of difficulties. Face the challenges of life with maturity and dignity. Successful marriages are based on mutual love and understanding. Lots of it.
May yours be a truly successfull marriage.
One last word. Never go to sleep on a quarrel.
Always In My Thoughts!
I get so excited a month before my birthday and I make sure I grill all my friends to remember the date.I have recurring nightmares that people would forget that its MY BIRTHDAY!!! Its a big deal.You know what! I wish it was a public holiday. 😀
I grew up celebrating my Birthdays on a big scale.There would be 2 sets of new clothes,lot o chocolates to take to school,a party in the evening with lots o people,balloons,cake,candles,gift wrapped gifts and wide spread of desserts and return gifts. Then, I turned 13 and suddenly I am all grown up for a celebration(sigh!) I am gonna have all of that, no matter how old I am at least once in my life time(even if that makes me look like a self absorbed narcissist) 😉
Have you ever felt like the world around you is zipping by and you are a spectator, watching time rush by. It always feels like that around this time of the year. Ive had 25 years of experience in this world and I don’t know if I am wise enough for a 25 year old. Some part of me refuses to grow up. I wake up everyday and fall in love with so many things and I’m scared I will stop loving them someday.In simpler words… I’m perpetually scared I will turn into an old granny too early. 😀
I was never sure what I wanted to be as a grown up. Kids usually would say ‘I wanna be a doctor’ or ‘I wanna be a scientist’ or ‘a pirate’ or something. All I knew was that ‘I did not wanna be a doctor’ but I wanted to be famous..(it was my lil secret) :)…just simply famous. Ah! its so much easier in my dreams.But today… I don’t even know if people would notice if I disappear one day. Oh my! I sound so morbid :D… K it might not be that bad, but yeah.. I’m not famous ‘YET’ 🙂
I’m certainly not a big fan of growing up.. well who is. I wake up everyday telling myself, that I’m going to be a cheerful and loving person today, and some days it is easy to be that person, but it seems to be getting harder and harder to be like that… its almost a challenge. Well,life’s never easy I guess, if anything it keeps getting tough.But the point is… here I am dealing with problems in life as gracefully as I can. I have survived all the tough patches and made it this far.. unimpaired. 🙂 and its cause o the love and support I get from every single person I know in my life.
Love you all tons!!!
Doordarshan was the only channel we had way back in 88 and I still remember seeing this video…. The new version is certainly not as good as this one.. they give too much importance to glam and it sounds so disjointed, but it made me wanna watch the old “mile sur….” and this video gives me goosebumps even now…
Sunday was the bestest day of the whole week… A day we were allowed to watch tv all morning and afternoon.. it meant yummy food, friends, Jungle book, Malgudi days , Arabian nights . We would hum “Jungle Jungle baat chali hai pata chala hai..Arre chaddi pehen ke phool khila hai phool khila hai….” aaalll day. I was flooded with memories o childhood after watching this video… sooo miss being a kid 🙂
