School Life...

Skool life was real Fun....That was Life...in every sense meaningful,interesting n enjoyable...I've enjoyed every moment of it n regret havin had to grow up...Life was easy when I was a kid...no unnecessary tensions...problems...a care-free life... Life was like a leaf in the autumn wind....

I ve had my fill of skools n skool frendz....havin got a chance to study in 8 schools in my 12 yrs of primary education(now that I'm into my master's , all that seems to be primary) n each of the schools teachin me sumthings in life...lots of techers,scores of friends...I've relished every single day I've gone to school,evn the exams coz xams at this level r such a drag...3 hours n 100 marks n epics to write...
The recess,play time n the assembly...I guess I remember my 11 n 12 th classes more than any thing else but my Years at De Paul,Kalpetta n Bhavan's,Calicut.....r worth saying...De Paul was the best-its true,guys....my concept of an ideal school life....
Class X was boring...studies,tution,tension,first boards....I thought they wud kill me...

What did one know of the complexities of life then??? of Guys n gals(boys n girls then)...of love??? We respected our teachers,listened to them,did homework,played crazy games...wrote exams,brought parents to PTA meetings?(atcually we din bring them,they came)...n wore smart uniforms....We were actually scared of exams n used to study though not daily...Nowadays I wait 4 the study hols to open my books...
My best memories r those of recitations n elecutions n all culturals...Annual days,Christmas celebrations,Onam pookalams...

Life sure was simple then....

But then there was no bunkin classes,no gang of friends to head to the canteen with,no gals to gossip with and of course....no guys to flirt with. All that came wth college...A sample of the Life outside...of the real World where u r destined to spent the rest of ur life time...

The innocence was lost,the cute smile lost......eyes full of hope...light....n joy.... all lost forever....
Now the eyes r clouded...the twinkle in the eyes in lost,the spring in the steps is lost...I no longer walk...I run...always in a hurry....there is tension always...what to do next,where to go next n whom to call next....Studies,Jobs,Family,Responsibilities.......on those tiny shoulders which once carried a bag full of books...
