Childhood is the 1st stage in our life’s cycle. We start growing from that very point. That’s the stage where we are true humans with innocent looks and real smiles on our face. Having no knowledge about the real world. But, we learn a lot from that very stage of our life. Those are the days when we are really happy! When we don’t have any grudges or greed in our heart! When we are smiling without any reason! When we don’t have or at least don’t know about the responsibilities. We just learned to enjoy those days.. :)
So, here is a piece from my childhood days which I would like to share them with you!
To my knowledge, I was joined in that school in 2nd class. I still remember those very first days. That was my first year in life to see such a huge building with many children dressed in white and navy blue uniform. They were talking in English. And later, I came to know that if a student doesn’t talk in English, the teachers will punish them severely! I was so scared at that. But however I learned the language very soon! And the teachers who teach there, are actually from kerala, and they only speak English or Malayalam. I loved to hear their language rather than English. I got used to that atmosphere within no time. I used to speak telugu out side the school campus, but when my foot enters the school gate, I instantly change my language without my senses. I wondered many times that how I could do that!
We had a lady class teacher. She taught science to us. One day, she told me to mug-up by giving one Para and said later she will ask some questions from that Para. So, as to gain impression on me, I started to read and actually mugged up everything from that Para. After few minutes she turned to me and started asking questions. I could not answer any question!!(giving a confused look to her) Because, the questions were not from that Para! As a part of the punishment, she pinched on my left hand leaving a scar of her long nails which were painted with purple Asian paints :X
I was totally angry on her! So, I decided to take revenge on her. In lunch break, my mother came to school for feeding me. I told all the story which happened(adding some spice :P). She was angry and complained that to headmaster. He took action and scolded that lady. To my wonder, she started crying while headmaster was scolding her. I was like saying sorry for making her to cry. From that day, she started talking with me softly and loved me always! Nice of her :). But I could not remember her name because that was a keralite name. Sorry for my short memory :(
I studied in that school till my 6th class. I loved and enjoyed all those days. I remember my class mates. Sorry, I must say, I would remind about them every now and then. I actually love to cherish all those happy moments in my life. Ayesha, divya, manasa, keerthi, Rahul, Manish, Uday, Madhushudhan, Madiha, Nabeela, Rohini… I remember you guys!! I love you all for leaving foot prints in my life which make me happy reminding about them.
Coming to few important people, whom I seldom think of.
Ayesha – Most cheerful and happy girl I ever saw. We use to have a tight competition during exams time. Whether she or me would come first or second in the class. She is my best friend still :) Few months ago, I contacted her, she stays in a hostel now. I know that she will give a tough competition even there. Thanks to her for making my short life filled with beautiful smiles.
Rahul – The biggest prankster during my school days. We use to fight a lot and a lot!! We enjoy fighting rather than hating it :P We use to fight with whatever we get handy at that very moment. I remembered this fighting with water bottles, text books, scales :P. But, the interesting thing is we use to share lunch with each other and praise the tasty curries done by our mother’s(as if it is done by ourselves :P). I use to feel sad whenever a teacher scolds him. But he…!!! He use to mock at me when a teacher shouts at me. But still… I like him :P. Can say that I had a childhood crush on him. But, now I don’t know where he is? What he is doing now? I always have questions with me about him… that Does he remember me? Will he be thinking of me? Did he remember all those good days in childhood life? Did he forget me?... so on! Hope he catches me if I would ever be giving an interview on a popular channel :P.
I also remember my teachers. Sunnish sir was my English teacher. I had a crush on his smile. He use to have a good impression on me as my writing looks good or way better than other pupils in my class ;) He was my class teacher in 5th class. Hmm… did he keep me in mind? Yeah, the questions are again the same…!!
Those where my childhood days! I treasured many of them. I always love to ring a bell about those days. It makes my heart feel refresh and happy! Thanks to all my friends and teachers for making those days beautiful in my life. Thanks to God for giving me a past which was beautiful!
Childhood is the most beautiful of all Life's seasons.
