Memories – part 1

Posted: July 19, 2010 in Uncategorized

yeh daulat bhi le lo yeh shauhrat bhi le ,
bhale cheen lo mujhse meri jawaani
magar mujhko lauta do BACHPAN ke saathi ,
woh kagaz ki kishti woh barish ka paani

mmmmmm Good old days.. remembering them makes u smile. No wonder its called the golden age.

Oh Man I miss my bachpan days… I being the only male child in my family was pampered a lot.. so it was all the more better for me…

School days, today i am going to talk about prior to 4th – 5th class..

I still remember a lot of that time .. My friends and Teachers, God knows where they are now, what they are doing. I know its been long , we parted our ways ages ago , went our own ways but I still remember them all.

I remember the days when I and my best friend at that time would go on our cycles roaming around aimlessly Not a worry in the world dance to the songs of dharamveer and sholay ..

“Yeh dosti hum nahin todenge ” and “Saat ajoobe is duniya main.. aathvin apni jodi” dreaming that we will be together ever

Nostalgic times when I remember it all

I wonder sometimes do the people I think of remember me .. or am i lost in the mist somewhere.

Did i mean something to them THEN as they meant to me.

Would we recognise each other if we met up,

Would we still have the same chemistry as we had then.

Would we still play the games we played then.

Where are all those guys/girls.

What are they doing in life.

What did they do after we parted ways.

I remember one of my friend had his birthday party which was to begin in evening , by the afternoon it had started raining cats and dogs.. so much so that the roads were flooded, how i asked my dad to give me his raincoat, put it on and walked to his house to be there and THE SMILE and Glee he had on his face seeing me , since no one had turned up by then.. it was priceless… then as the rain subsided, it was 7 or 8pm at night a few others turned up, how my friend told the others “Bikram was here first”, how i got a extra chocolate. WOW

Then on Sundays we got together,went to the park, where there were Two JAMUN trees, when the Jamuns were ripe we would climb to eat them all, how the MAALI would come running after us with his DANDA.

Play cricket in the ground, fight over whether the ball dropped out of boundary or inside the boundary, After all it was a matter of LIFE and DEATH TWO runs.
Off course the LBW’s, No one had a clue what it was but the moment the ball hit the leg, It had to be LBW and then it was like world war III … KATI kar doonga … fir agle din ABBA. (by the way I still haven’t understood the rule, How the umpires decide if it is a LBW )

Weird things, a smile comes to face when u think of those words. LOTS and LOTS OF MEMORIES……. How I wish I could rewind the clock back…. Bunny , Hitesh , Rajit , Navdeep, Harjit, Laadi, Chaudhary where are you all guys … Hope we meet up sometime …

  15. wise donkey says:

    lbw was so funny..(i used to be the umpire most of the time but wasnt accurate all the time)


  16. Phoenixritu says:

    People change you know. I have changed so much that I can't relate to most of the people I loved so long ago. They find me strange too

  19. RGB says:

    Those were the days my friend, I wish they'd never end…so goes the song (Lucinda Williams) in my mind, as I read your post. The little things we did then, however trivial it may sound today (since we're all grown-ups and all!) were things that really mattered and still mattersto us (or else, we wouldn't have remembered any of them!). Hope you find your friends and catch-up with them SOON!

    Would we still have the same chemistry as we had then – Oh! I wonder too? But ya, I miss them I really do 😦


  24. pallavi says:

    Oh I loooooooooooooved this post…. esp the foll. line'roaming around aimlessly Not a worry in the world'You put it so simply and easily, Bikram. Childhood and adolescence was so beautiful, because we didn't have to worry about anything like finances/responsibilities/duty/future… we just lived day to day and it was so beautiful!!Sigh!!!


  25. Nu says:

    old days? they do make us nostalgic ! And we so want to go back to those days every time we think of them !Just one question: What did you mean by 'me being the only male child in the family was pampered a lot' !!did you mean since other children were females ? or you were the only child in the house at that time ?


  26. Harman says:

Yeah chidlhood was great and indeed beautiful it was


  29. @Nu:- thanks for the visit please keep coming… I am greedy about comments good or bad both he hehe .. good old days as they are called do make us nostalgic.. the answer to your question is .. In our joint family i was the only MALE child .. at that time aunts and uncles had daughters.. so i was pampered. @Harman:- Was missing your comment on this post 🙂 thanks and not to worry about late.. work comes first and being busy is good in today economic crisis.. 🙂 Thanks so much.@Kavisionz :- Thank you and i am glad it made you relive those moments .. thanks for visiting 🙂
