Nostalgia - the Past Perfect

BLUE Emotions @ Rachi Creations..
As the quote goes,Nostalgia is like a grammar lesson: You find the present tense and the past perfect”.

Ahh! The wheel of the time which continuously turns over churning the life with best and odd moments…wish there was a reverse gear! Hmm…being a bit…Nah! Very Nostalgic!

 Here, I have come up with a Game to play with all my dear reader buddies. Each line is like a Stimulator to the best and the odd incredible moments.

All you need is to read each line and feel it and try to recall the moment instantly before reading the next line…

So take few long breaths and go back to your origin and sense the experience…

  • Remember the first day of your life in School?
  • Remember the strange earthy fresh smell of the new notebook?
  • Remember your first raincoat?
  • Remember your very new and stylish car shaped pencil box?
  • Remember very heavy and much larger than you the school bag carried on your tiny shoulders?
  • Remember how you shared your Tiffin box with friends during lunch break?
  • Remember the way you hated doing homework?
  • Remember the way you threw your bag on the bed and ran outside to play with your colony friends?
  • Remember buying picture charts to paste for the project-work assigned in school?
  • Remember during vacations writing the cursive writing books to improve your handwriting?
  • Remember the first time you fall down so badly while cycling and hurting your knees so badly?
  • Remember your classroom blackboard, where you often made funny cartoons?
  • Remember throwing small chalk pieces in the classroom?
  • Remember scribbling on the last page of the notebook?
  • Remember trying to paint in the art class, however not liking drawing?
  • Remember the way you loved eating Rajma Chawal in lunch during Sundays?
  • Remember the first time you made tea without anybody’s help?
  • Remember the way you had silly fight with your friends over getting out in hide and seek game, you cried and came back home in anger?
  • Remember playing under table making tents with the bed sheet?
  • Remember eating poppins or hoping the colorful gems?
  • Remember wearing colorful dress in the school on your birthday?
  • Remember getting dressed up as a sunflower for the annual day function?
  • Remember you brought in school your new sweet fragrant eraser to show off in front of your classmates?
  • Remember flying kites on the terrace and cutting your finger due to sharp thread? Remember your first cycle with side supports?
  • Remember the first time you started writing with pen in school?
  • Remember the way you waited to watch and every time got amazed to see the rainbow after the rains?
  • Remember making paper boats and paper frogs in the free classes?
  • Remember playing pranks in the school assembly?
  • Remember pretending to feel dizzy in the long school assembly?
  • Remember singing the National Anthem in the school?
P.S. Hope these lines stimulated you to remember your innocence which we have almost lost in the chaos of fast forward life!

Time shall fly away the moment you actually realize it.
Make it last longer, make it memorable!

  4. Very Lovely post :
    I remember how special everything was in my childhood. Even a leaf of tree looks so beautiful...a strange feeling which today I feel, has been lost... whenever I bought a new pen...there is something different in it which stimulates to write more and more... The game of fight in lunch time instantly makes me laugh today...With heavy bags, when I used to run against the rain, even today I can remember its joy...I have been very close to nature..The fields, the river, the trees...these make me very nostalgic...and make my childhood days very special to me... Today when I retrospect...everything looks so beautiful, so jovial that even today remembering them I feel a refreshing and rejuvenating feeling...

    Thanks a lot for reminding my childhood
    days... :)

  14. Awesome post. The past is always a learning process where we stumble to grow with not knowing and fly like a butterfly. You rocked it. The past is always a freedom of innocence in which we took time to see and learn. Now I want all those candies which I ate including poppins and the run around hopping like a small child.

  15. You made me feel very nostalgic, and few moments were worth remembering. Came here through Vishnu's blog. Glad I did. This place is happening and u have a vibrant writing
