There was a time...

There was a time when everybody who smiled at you was a "friend".
When the boy who owned the cricket bat was the "boss".
When loosing a "rubber" was reason enough to cry.
When "searching" for a one rupee coin on the TV stand used to give you goosebumps.
When the prettiest girl in the class was just another friend.
When Jimmy Bhaiya's Samosa were the ultimate concept of a "grand treat".
When the Principal was more scary than a zombie.
When vacations were filled with fun, surrounded by cousins and we never thought of them as irritating.
When you used to beg to mom to skip tuition for "Alladin" on Fridays.
When shining the cycle rim was the toughest job of all.

There was a time when our eyes used to brim with playful innocence,
and the job of worrying was left to mom and dad.
I can't explain enough how I miss those times!


  1. how true!!!! me too miss those days !

  2. Fantastic... Nostalgic... :) Those days were simple... But Lovely... Innocent and Happy... Childhood at its Best... :)

  3. @TTT & Raghu : Yes..Its also amazing to see that how easily people relate to expressions of childhood and almost everyone gets nostalgic, as if everyone had the same kind of experience :)

  4. You can certainly see your expertise in the work you write.

    The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe.
    At all times follow your heart.
