Those golden days

A tribute to the golden days of life.

Those were the golden days when all we wanted to watch was Tom and Jerry on TV instead of NDTV, Discovery etc.

Those were the golden days when we went to school not to learn or study but only to play dam-dam-dup or chidi-udd-kaan-udd with our friends.

Those were the golden days when we used to excuse – mam, mai copy ghar bhul aya but mai homework kita c and we wondered how come teacher came to know that we were lying.

Those were the golden days when breaking someone’s pencil made him our enemy.

Those were the golden days when we used to secretly eat our lunch box while the teacher was teaching.

Those were the golden days when competition only meant that whose pencil is bigger.

Those were the golden days when saying katti (while pressing your thumb against your upper jaw’s from teeth) turned someone into your enemy and saying aaddi (while making a well-like structure with your index and thumb finger) turned someone into your friend.

Those were the golden days when we used to lie mam mai copy ni leke aya when our friend didn’t complete his homework even if we might have done it.

Those were the golden days when a pouted face with a small word sorry was the solution to all the life’s problems.

Those were the golden days when after a lecture (which we didn’t listen to) we ask our friend kuch samaj laggi?

Those were the golden days when bell rang after every period and we used to say chal ghar chaliye.

Those were the golden days when we used to cry a lot only because we didn’t want to go to school.

Those were the golden days when benches were meant only to be scribbled upon with our name.

Those were the golden days when chat-pat-gola or lukan-machichi (hide and seek) were the only games we wanted to play during interval and we used to wonder why interval lasted for such a short duration.

Those were the golden days when while walking in line to the assembly area we used to break the line or go out of the line and justify to a friend yaar sher kaddi line ch ni chalde.

Those were the golden days when it used to rain and we purposely asked permission to go to washroom only to get wet and enjoy in rain.

Those were the golden days, weren’t they?
