Gone are those days......But yet so much to come....

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 
plan on the road with laptop! 

Gone are the days
 

When we saw stars Shining at Night!
 

Now we s
ee stars when our plan 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.............
