Why can't good things last a little longer !




I wouldn't have realized it if it was not for the unusual jam of traffic, as early as 7:30 AM, yesterday. I decided to drive in a little early to work and was wondering what was pulling all these folks, so madly, at such an early hour.

I mean, traffic in Trivandrum, any day would not be as crazy as in Bangalore.

And then, there were these mobs of school children all around. It took me their not-so-happy faces to grasp the point that schools were reopening after the holidays.
(I must say, not everyone's face was unhappy, but mine indeed went gloomy, when I had this abrupt feeling that it's back to school today )

I felt so thankful, that I didn’t have to face this terrible day anymore. Having been able to scoop up two whole months all for myself, with no schools, no homework, no teachers (and the sad thing was no friends, but that was okay, you would catch up for all those lost out time, later during school) , used to be the best thing of my life, until I was in the 9th grade.

(We could not take the liberty of fleeing school during summer, after 9th ‘coz there were classes held on holidays, for the next grade because the teachers wanted to wind up lessons, much before the end of the academic year, to let us take time to revise stuff).

I reckon I used to chuck all my text books and question papers out on the ledge of the cupboard, on the last day of the exams and run around , having lost total control of my sanity.
I am still in love with that moment.

End of the holidays , to me, were always like the dementors of the Harry Potter books. Nothing could have more easily sucked out all the joy and hope, from my insides. I really don’t know why I hated school reopenings so much, because, things used to get more fun n nice, slowly, in about a month.

But the first day of school, any year, any place was always just too awful.

Bungi, I know we miss them the most when we get back home, all excited for a week end and there is this school kid next door, saying, "my school is shut for the next 2 months'

Gomathy, do you remember the fun we used to have in auto, while getting back after the last xam ? Our auto mama used to buy us candies !! I can't stop longing for them again !
