School Day memories 

Today on my way to office,  luckily I was wearing my specs so was paying attention to things outside....we passed by many places like church, Station, bus stops, hospitals , Shopping complexes and then what actually caught my attention was School..I saw many students walking in a line probably for morning assembly. It made me feel nostalgic about my school days so thought to revive ma school day memories.
I was a DAVian a proud DAVian, a very naughty child, good at studies but a backbencher. In my early school days the thing I remember the most is the animal dance, we used to wear different kind of animal dresses and then do PT (Some weird exercises) in sports day. Shobha Mam was the one who used to make us perform it and the worst part was for 2 consecutive years I got the dress of a cow lolzzz and I always wanted to become a bear but to go and say this to Mam was the most courageous thing I could have thought of doing so I was a happy being a cow girl he he.

In DAV the complete crowd including the teachers were divided into 4 houses Tagore (Green Badge), Gandhi (Blue Badge), Patel (Yellow badge) and Nehru (Red Badge). I was a Tagorian, it was always like a battle ground in between these groups let be in sports, co-curricular activities anything. Our principal Mr Prashant Vashisht was a disciplinarian and was particular about the students following the dress code ... when I say dress code it means clean Shoe policy (we used to keep a small cloth inside our sox it was used whenever there was a checking by the prefects), army cut hairstyle for boys, 2 plaits for girls (no pony tail), ID card, Badge blah blah blah. Well many of the times we used to forget some or the other thing and then prefects used to make us stand at a place where everyone can see the people punished trust me we were not at all ashamed infact it was a proud feeling to stand aloof from the crowd. Many times we used to get punished voluntarily and many times just to company friends ;) I hope you people would have also done this in your school life.

We had a gang called STAR (Suman , Thushara, Akansha,Rupali)  a rocking group must say and the extension to this group was Roopkamal (Roopa bai),Priyanka S (Pallavi).... We used to do all the girlish stuffs that we should do.....I remember the NV jokes we used to share (the 1st NV joke I have heard in my life was with them) the first time when one amongst our group had a crush on head boy of the school Oh mine!!!  It became a craze for all of us, Rupali’s crush on Nick Carter (Back Street Boys guy) and her 8-9 pages letter to him...Not sure whether she ever posted them, then our hand signs (which symbolized our group) that we used to do just to throw tantrums, those secret love letters passed by boys ha ha i remember a fanatic guy had written a stupid, freaky letter to me on his 10th class admit card and got suspended from school  it became a big issue though made me famous. And keeping everything aside these girls are damn talented and at present following up their dreams.

The funniest incident that I can think of is.... As girls are always inhabit of moving in groups...We girls used to go to FP (Fav Place –Wash room) together I mean even if one has to go to FP the rest used to come to company so once when the  interval was just about to get over ..We went to FP, And one amongst us went inside and the others were waiting outside we did not have a latch inside so we used to lock the door from outside: P and now the disaster happened we locked the door from outside and when the bell rang indicating the interval is over we forgot to unlatch the door and went to class... We got a shock when after sometime the 4th girl came completely frustrated as head boy was the one to rescue her...lolzz  After a while we all laughed like anything that is how friends are J Are you people curious to know  Who was the girl inside the FP..??? Let it be a mystery that’s our top secret.

One thing that I feel sad about is that I always looked forward for becoming prefect, head girl and wearing those badges which were distributed in front of the whole school the way our seniors used to get which shows you have an authority it really meant a lot but something went wrong with the administration and we were not given badges: (Anyways never mind still those were the best days of my life. I miss those days when we have to study those crazy lessons to pass the class tests , terminals , half-yearly  and boards which you have to face twice in lifetime and there are few schools where in 8th standard also they have board exams..n DAV was one of them. I miss those days when I used to get the jitters whenever there is reporting in front of the class or whenever need to get ma parents signature on report card. I miss standing out of the class for punishments I really miss the place and the people.

Thanks to all ma friends who made it beautiful. Love you all and miss you people.



What’s the best part of your school days that you would vouch for???

Cheers !!!

God Bless !!!

23rd NOV’ 2008

A bright sunny day we woke up early in the morning for the so called “Dolphin watch”


The guys could not make it as they all were sleeping but all the girls did not miss the chance… as apart from the Dolphin watch they wanted to see the sun rising and waise bhi only girls can think of seeing the Sun rising from West  Anyways we all enjoyed seeing Dolphins and smiled every time Dolphins jumped.
By the time we came back the guys were ready so we decided to go for parasailing… But  there was a long queue for parasailing so we thought to again go and play in water……..But guys had some other plans, they again proposed to go for boating so thats what we did next.

The guy who took us he just said casually that if you people feel like diving go for it …we just asked what is the depth here he said 75 feet …personally I thought he has gone nuts that he is asking us to dive here… And to my surprise in our group many were ready to do that… So finally Sumit, Shreyansh, Priyank they all with the life jackets got into the water……they can never forget that moment I am sure .....the most scary thing was Shreyansh and Priyank didn't know swimming…but still can remember the achievement on their faces…

Hey I have not mentioned one name Bhavna as it needs to be highlighted ….she has hell lot of guts boss ….she was the only one who got into the water ..without life jacket she actually scared the hell out of me..But hats offs to her.

After this adventure we headed for parasailing actually Mission- Parasailing for vasu he was so scared lolzz but we all enjoyed……




So now our trip was coming to end we went back had lunch and packed our bags…
Time to go back to pavilion …while coming our star singers again sang some beautiful songs for us and of course including their pet songs and this time with little bit of dancing also… then after an hour we all were completely exhausted so we all tried to sleep in those uncomfortable bus seats. And we managed some how… and at 5 am early in the morning we reached Pune. It was the end of our journey but beginning og many last longing relationships…So let's keep the flame of friendship alive

Our group believes that:

If you have a zest for life, you will never miss out on fun. Don't be uptight all the time. Drop your worries and just learn to chill-out……….

Long Live Friendship !!!!

Cheers!!

In between goals is a thing called life that has to be lived and enjoyed.

 
22nd NOV’ 2008
We all met at Sharda Center at about 5.00 am in the morning heading for a beautiful trip far away from the hustling and bustling of the city believe me I had no idea that the next 2 days will be amongst the most beautiful days of my life and I can never forget this days....

I would first like to introduce all the people who were part of this trip....



Ashish Chowdhury (baby): He is very Cute and mast maula types









Ashish Samarth (Sam): He is intelligent and fun loving








Sumit Agrawal: He is a nice chap and an amazing person











Abhishek Vijay: He is a very sweet sa boy and very loving & caring








Vaasu: He is full of enthusiasm and energy and very caring






Priyank Patel: He has tremendous energy and hamara star singer hai ji





 Reshma Setpal: she is very silent and innocent and has a lovely voice.









Bhawna Arora: she is a beautiful girl and with lots of courage…










Shrayansh Jain: He is clear hearted and speaks with with little punjabi accent which Actually suits him….








Priya Garg: She is a sweetheart and a wonderful friend must say lucky if you are in her friend list






Rashmi Khati: She is very thoughtful and a lovely company.











Vaishali Khandelwal: She is brave & has lots of guts.




Akansha Mittal: She is charming, caring, loves to enjoy to fullest n one who likes very much to pull anybody’s leg ...and after this trip she is able to write……..also ha ha this is what my friend wrote for me...








So now the unforgettable tour begins….
We all were sitting on stairs of Sharda waiting for the bus to come and take us to our destination but the bus was about 2 hours late… D'oh  it was so tough for all of us to wake up so early in the morning that too on Saturday huh…. But finally we all went for a tea and by the time we came the bus also arrived and we started with our trip… Our friends who started from GIGA already reserved the seats for all of us. We all occupied the last seats of the bus like the back benchers…. (I think majority of us would have enjoyed the privilege of being the backbenchers during their school days and college days)

Initially when the bus started there was a bit silence as we all were famished and was waiting for the breakfast. It took around one-half hour to reach mulshi where we had breakfast. The view was mesmerizing valleys, mountains, lake …. Vow it was such a wonderful experience…




After having breakfast we again started the journey and now all were synergetic and enthusiastic. We started with the most popular game in India Guess what??? Yes Of course Antakshri and our star players were Vasu, Priyank, Ashish and Sumit.
All of us can never forget few songs ever: “Maa Meri Maa Se Mila De Mujhe” and “The Karz one” (So has anyone counted how many times Priyank sang these songs ..Anyways he rocked)……Well this game continued for about 4-5 hours but our star players were consistent in their energy level…God knows from where they got this energy from but it was real fun I must say we had a blast……Finally we reached Murud (a village) …it was a very different feeling we all were given rooms….all the 5 girls we stayed together it was not a hotel but we actually stayed with the locals. I hope all the girls will always remember Yogesh and his sweet talks… Yogesh was a localitie and was 8-9 year old … all of us enjoyed the conversations with him and actually watching fish in a well with him… he found that so fascinating can never forget the innocence on his face he used to throw stones in well so that we can watch fishes.

Well we all freshened up and met again for the lunch which was very simple , away from all the spices……but then who cares when we are hungry….so after our lunch was over we went to the beach…
It was our first encounter with the virgin beach…it was quite clean…trust me it was a mind blowing experience to see the beautiful coastal region of Konkan...











Can still hear the sea noice some times it was hell scary and some times soothing…all played in water…nothing scared them neither the tides nor the sea animals…accept few like me who were scared of water and Rashmi who loved to sit near the seashore all the others played football and did lot of masti


They all just freaked out….it was pleasure watching all of them away from all the tensions and worries of life…and the best part of the trip was our phones were out of coverage...I guess we all would have never thought to live w/o our phones for 2 days but I am sure no one would have actually missed it either.

Then comes the Sunset……!!!!!!
After being in water for long we all were bit tired and were damn hungry so thought of having dinner and then planned to come to beach again….When we reached the venue where our dinner arrangements were made things were looking pretty different…All the other people who came in the trip were in the mood of dance…..And our group being over enthusiastic and full of fanatics as usual just need a chance to dance so we rocked the floor as we had some great dancers in our group…Please don’t think that I am exaggerating actually our group has many talented people and they at knew to live their life to the fullest….that is why we rocked.

















And we kept it going…….!!!!!!!!!! The Pic below…. gonna be most remembered……!!!!!!!!

So at about 10:30-11:00 pm we all went to the beach the way to beach had no lights there was complete darkness and we made all sort of noises to scare each other but then we have all the brave people in our group so nothing worked…
At the sea shore we all just relaxed our self and spent few hours staring at the sky which was inky black and full of twinkling stars , seeing the reflection of stars in the deep blue sea was incredible…and in the background some romantic tracks (Specially Kahin to hogi woh…) to make the atmosphere very light. At times there was complete silence as all were lost in their thoughts probably might be thinking about some loved ones, some incomplete stories, dreams desires…. As one of my friend always says that we always miss our closed ones when we are on such places … or when it rains…I guess everyone there was experiencing the same…it was fantabulous…. We did not realize that it was mid night, actually we all felt like sleeping there only but then it was bit cold. So we decided to get back to our rooms…

That night we lived our childhood again...




















The journey continues...................

Daddy's Gal...

He didn't tell me how to live; he lives, and let me watch him do it

On our visit to hospital for some routine checkups while we were waiting for our turn to meet the Doc, I just noticed Aadi was looking at someone and had a big smile on her face…I also looked at the same direction and saw a father playing with his child he was so much engrossed that he did not even notice our stares. There was something very magical about that moment just at that time Aadi asked why you don’t write something about a father and daughter relationship. Well I have already given a thought about it before also... so today I am finally writing.
Well I have lot to say when it comes to my dad… He is my role model, he is the nicest human being I have ever met in my life, very simple and alas…I just worship him. He has always treated me like a princess in his royal castle always under his shadow of protection and love. He has never been strict to me for anything and trust me till date he has never scolded me ... might be the other reason is that I have always been a good daughter lolz… Hope I am not sounding like a narcissist. Whenever I used to have a fight with my mom over petty trifles I used to go to his office to complaint, he used to just respond with a big smile and then ask Arjun (guy working in his office) to get me whatever I want specially to eat as after a fight with mom we usually decide that we will not eat anything that she cooks ha ha. Once I even went on a hunger strike at home … and when my dad came back from office he made parathas for me ...though he is very bad at cooking but still I cannot express what it meant to me.   
 He used to narrate stories to me and my bro…. (That I now tell my roommates ;))  I have always been greedy for more stories and at times when he got frustrated…His favorite story was “Ek tha Raja Ek this Rani dono mar gaye khatm kahani” I miss those stories a lot. My dad is not very expressive but still on my b’day , which majority of the times I used to celebrate at my Nanihal as it falls during summer vacations , he used to send a big size b’day card in which except the address there was nothing… but still it was the best b’day wish for me. He can say a million words without saying anything and that‘s the way he is.
I just love the way he loves me, he makes me a proud daughter. I have lot of memories that I cannot replay but can just wish that I could….
Infact for every daughter her father provides a sense of security and reassures her that she will always be protected from harm. A father is always someone who wants to catch you before you fall but he instead picks you up, brushes you off and let you try again. Love you papa …I know you will never read this blog but still wanted to speak it loud. And you know I always used to do my best to impress you with my achievements J  whatever I am today is all because of your parenting, love and care Dad. You have always been my inspiration.

To all people if you think it’s too late to acknowledge your parents, it’s never too late

Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter. In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters there is something which there are no words to express.”
