Today it was raining and Husby had to drop me at work. While on way we crossed a school.[digression]-On a rainy day I love watching people, trees, roads, shops everything that I can see from a moving car….do you too love looking out of the window on a rainy day? [/digression]
Any way,so coming back to the school that we passed by. We found lot of students standing at their class windows and chit chatting. I wondered if there were no classes today? Husby said it might be a rainy day for them cause it’s raining hard since morning and there would be high absenteeism.
This took me back to my school times. How it was declared a rainy day or a wintry day or even a half day if the weather was bad and the strength in the school was low.
How old times become so far and distant and look so good…just because they are no more in our present ? We tend to love and want something that we’ve left behind…especially the childhood…those times..carefree life and careless attitude…the old selves who were much younger, faster and clearer of thoughts!
Today for a moment when I got up I felt like bunking the office.The gloomy weather does that to me,often! But of course I could not…it’s just the start of my second week here and I’m already thinking of a chutti ? How can I !!!!!!
I know the current times are good too, like in childhood I always thought of becoming something and working in swanky offices like they showed in the movies. And work I did…but then life doesn’t remain as innocent and clean as it was in the childhood, or does it?
It’s not only the other side that seems greener but the older times too seem a lot greener and healthier as compared to our current times.And upon hearing such things we say ‘it’s natural, it’s human‘ !
Human means feeling deprived of happiness even when we have it right now,in a different form. Human means comparing with others even if we have good points to count in our own kitty. Human means growing up and feel all that that we never knew existed in a human mind and heart when we were kids!
I see Chirpy today and feel-today she is free of everything. A pure soul now but getting ready to be tarnished with jealousy, comparison, anger, competition and all things negatives.Yes,I agree she’ll be what I’ll make her and I’ll make her a good human being,of course…but these negatives are not to be taught. They are naturally ingrained in a human mind,without even the person knowing it himself/herself in the course of life….
Hail childhood, Hail good old times !
P.S. this post is not on cribbing about today’s life but about missing yesterday’s life !
