The Beginning

Well in the midst of my exams, I had this thought, years back too I gave exams, so did everyone else. But there’s a big difference in what was and what is. I think I loved the subjects, the teachers or maybe was always somehow motivated by parents, elders. Today giving my engineering exams, the scenario has changed. Not that I didn’t want to take up engineering or anything of that sort, but something really has changed. We’ve grown up.

         Just remember the times when we were kids, how super enthusiastic and eager we used to be just to get older. Our age increased in fractions. I’m 6 and ½. I’m going to be fourteen. How much fun it seemed like growing up.
           
 But today I don’t feel the same. Turning 18 is fun. Actually its cool. Turning 21 is great. As exclaimed by people, yet to know what its like.
But later time just goes. And I just don’t like getting old.

           I just loved my childhood. No reasons.
Actually honestly, my school friends will agree to this fact, about how shy, reserved, introvert was I, then! Today, I can frame it like.. exactly contrary to what I’m today.
           But today when I remember my childhood, I see it as how nice it was to have a few friends, everyone pulling your cheeks, being afraid of that uncle next door and when you enjoyed all the festivals (in true sense) and when it was so much just to assist your bro in his work and get yelled upon at the same time for it.
How nice were the summer vacations, the days I went swimming (I LOVE swimming), the times I use to jump and dance in front of the cooler and play games with mom.


I loved my daily schedule then. Get up, do home work, write tables just before the auto comes (infact get it written from my bro {:P} 5 mins before my auto-wale-uncle came shouting ‘Pallavi’), go to school, recess, games, come home in the evening, watch the awesomest cartoons (seriously read the CARTOONS), play, have dinner and sleeeep!
That was Life!

You lived in the moment then. Today you think you have grown up, you think you have responsibilities. Today you think about your future. And there you’ve it, simply lost it.
But but but, growing up is something we can’t avoid. We could make it fun too. But the indispensable part of it is remaining young at heart. 18 till I die… ;-) B)
