Remembering my past Leads me to the utmost happiness. Today as I was searching books for my grandmother, I found a book of Premchand. I took it and removed it’s dust with my hands and gradually filped its pages. Suddenly, I saw something white in between Yellow crinkly Pages. I turned over the pages and found a little piece of paper on which ‘social’ was written. All at a once a smile came on my face. Abruptly, I stepped into my past and remembered the history of that piece of paper. When I was in 2nd – 3rd standard, I used to play with my cousins and three of my friends. When my summer or winter vacation starts. Generally Alisha, Shifa , krish, Nandan and I used to play our self-made games for almost whole day. Without worrying about studies or anything else, just enjoying our imaginary games. One of our favourite game was teacher- teacher. We used to play this game in my drawing room. Before starting we always had a fight for who would become the teacher. One day we decided that from now onwards we would have several period so everyone gets chance. One of us would become our class teacher. We used to behave like that, that was our first day of new session not just for one day we repeated it every time we played.
The game starts like this, the teacher enters our so-called classroom. We would sing rather than say good morning. Then he/she makes us pray and she says thought of the day as a part of assembly. We would start our first period the teacher takes the attendance, and as it was our first day we used to introduce ourselves. And the teacher would make several incharges like cupboard incharge, blackboard incharge, cleanliness incharge monitor etc. then he/she would teach us. For irritating the teacher we used to interrupt in between and ask silly questions. When we get bored one of us would knock the table just like the way school bell rings. And second period begins. Like this we continue our game and the last and my most favourite part of that game comes. In that our class teacher used to come and tell us that from next week we were having our unit test. So, we would have to arrange the copies roll number wise. In that room there is a cupboard filled with books and magazines. All that books and magazines used to be our copies. Then we have to make name plates for each subject and put it in that copy and arrange them roll number wise and subject wise. Today while writing I noticed funniest thing about this game that on our first day of a new session itself we were told that from next week we are having our unit test.
All these fun times became past.All my friends had shifted to other places. And every one of my age around me is getting older and have no time to play. Recently I made a new friend she was just like Me interested in playing so we used to play but covid-19 destroyed my happiness. As I can’t meet my friends the only thing which is left is to catch-up online or cherish the past memory with them.
