Golden memories...

Memories pouring down it's colourful flowers laiden with the fragrance of nostalgia..... Good old times they were!! Today, on the way back to home, a group of school students in the bus and their murmering noise woke up the nostalgic sentiments in me.. My school days!!!

I'd my schooling in a near by convent school -- St.Joseph E.M.H.S, Anandapuram till my 10th class. And had my higher secondary education in St.Antonys HSS, Pudukad(largest HSS in Kerala). All the way to home, I was thinking of my school days. I wish, I were a small kid going to school, wearing uniform, with shoes, water bottle, school bag.. by school bus. I miss even my 'Panchara kuda'.


I'm not able to recollect anything from my KG classes :). And regarding lower primary classes too, have only a blurred memory. It was in my 3rd standard Achan got transferred to Malappuram and Amma to Coimbatore. And so, from my 3rd to 8th class, I with my chettan were with our grandmother in achan's ancestral home. He was my achan, amma and everything during those days. It was he who did all the duties of amma, in her absence even making me ready to go to school.


In UP classes, I was so naughty(like all others). And once I had a fight with a boy at school and I won in that fight. After that incident, we were like born-enemies. I remember - once he wrote in my book -- I will kill you. :) And the interesting thing is I was so afraid of him after that and had many nightmares, that he killing me :) Like wise a lot of interesting and exciting memories.. Those were the days of innocence, with no secrets, confusions and humiliations. Wasn't a hardworker or a book worm. But, somehow managed to score marks that were 'not that bad' :)

Then comes the '3 rocking years' of high-school period. Can say it as the best period in my academic life. By that time, my parents too got transferred to Thrissur. So happy I was.. both at home and at school. My school and my batch were simply superb!! So friendly we were with our teachers..

Used to participate in almost all items in youthfestival. But haven't ever tested my talent in sports :) They were the days full of enjoyment, thrill and happiness. Our batch was really an excellent one...active in all fields. Good competetion was there in my class in the case of studies too. And in my 10th standard, I was elected as the school-leader and best out-going student of that year :)(close your mouth.. how's it?).

I'm so closely attached with that school ...that is the relation of 12 years!! I consider it as 'the best' school. I miss all kinds of naughtiness we've done there, the fights we'd, journey in our school-bus, our group prayer in Chapel, our teachers, friends,..... everything and everything.

After my 10th, joined in St.Antony's, Pudukad for 11th/12th standard. Nothing special to write about those 2 years....so boring they were :(

I'm dedicating this post to my friends who studied with me till my 10th class. Cant express how much I love my school and the affection we all have for our our school. I wish, I could study there once again ...

But, I know..Past is past..
Can't rewind time..
Life is the moment we're living right now..
so, once again bye for all those good old times..


Current song: Oru vattam koodi..

Signing off,
Hailstone.

those beautiful days...

Uniforms,schoolbag,shoe,tie and the cycling to school with friends, all that snaps just flashed in memory while I read the post.

I guess there 'll be more emotions wen we leave our college, because the relations are much more closer here in college.

It'll be more paining if we think about the school-college days five or six years after we left our college.

It's the most beautiful days of our life.

Anyway as Amma said "athini orikkalum thirichu varillallo"
:(.

So don't lose the glad moments in our college days as it'll be the most beautiful memories in life.:)

nostaligic post...

I was very unlucky coz I did my schooling in 5 different schools... made lot of friends but relationships were short-living.. had my best time during my 9-10th and 11-12th..

And its true as bristo told, the friends you make for a lifetime are the ones you make in collegelife... lets rock our last two years ...

ഒരു വട്ടം കൂടിയെന്‍ ഓര്‍മ്മകള്‍ മേയുന്ന തിരുമുറ്റതെതുവാന്‍ മോഹം...
തിരുമുറ്റത്ത് ഒരു കോണില്‍ നില്കുമാ ആ നെല്ലിമരമോന്നു ഉലയ്കുവാന്‍ മോഹം..

വെറുതെ ഈ മോഹങ്ങള്‍ എന്നറിയുംപോളും വെറുതേ മോഹിക്കുവാന്‍ മോഹം...
വെറുതെ ഈ മോഹങ്ങള്‍ എന്നറിയുംപോളും വെറുതെ മോഹിക്കുവാന്‍ മോഹം...
