School Life-Nostalgia-A Rewind
With crying faces we begin our schooling and even end it. We cry, first as we meet so many strangers and later as we set apart from those strangers with whom we created great bonds during our school life. They are the same friends we wished teachers would let us sit together, be in the same class every year, copied homework, fought for whose pencil is sharper, shared lunch boxes, played bottle flips and what not.
No matter how boring we feel the subjects are, buying new stationery and opening the first page of notebooks have always been a pleasure. The best times have been, from the self-taught universal song- “Goood Moooorning Maaa’aaam!” to the iconic conversation- “I did my homework, but forgot to bring the notebook.” “Do you forget to eat your meals also?”. And a special mention to the saviour from the long lectures- the washroom!
The batches of the previous year and this academic year, have also got an opportunity to experience a different version of school life. A school with more use of technology than books and a school without school bags or tiffins or class fights. A school attended even on beds or in cars, texting friends without teachers noticing or saying, “I have a network issue,” when there is none while playing video games.
No matter what, the essence of school life remains the same and cannot be replaced by any phase of life. We didn't realize we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun. What nostalgia!
