Time Travel

  • TIME TRAVEL halts at school
  • [This is the true shots based on my personal life. Words and incidents captured from the Journal written during my school days (Class XII). Also have added few photocopy of the pages in SnapShot at the end of the post. Not much changed has been made…except few grammatical corrections…]
  • This post is an attempt to bind friends together, bind the memories and travel through time back excatly TEN years ago, which halts at School the best days of my life, creating eternal bond!
  • Kindly bear this post as a long one! Hope you enjoy the joy in the  journey of true words!


Today was a very nice day! The assembly in was conducted by the “Kanaklata House”. (There are total four houses in school, Kanaklata, Kamakhya, Brahmaputra, Nilachal..names based on the mountains and river of Assam)

  • NEXT:
In the morning assembly Korobi and Jaya’s (JayaLalita) Birthday was announced. We all clapped a loud. Interestingly the twist was, Today was not Jaya’s Birthday. It was a huge surprise not only for Jaya but also for us. She kept staring our faces in the shocked expressions. Me and Payal were busy in holding our giggle on the corner of the stage. We were noticed by Srikant Sir (My English Sir)! Though I guess, he must have made out that it was our mischief. Perhaps, this Time it was’nt we! They were our dear chasing classmates Boyzzz!

  • NEXT:
Today the students of the “Hindi Kakshya” (room dedicated in the school for Hindi Subject) were asked to sit in the class X-B during the free periods, as Gosawmi Sir (Our Hindi Sir) did not turn up due to certain reason.

I, Payal, Sahana, Namita, Korobi, Babita were in the group enjoying in the class.
Payal was singing songs of the film “Mohobattein” and I with Sahana was trying to picturesque the whole song by dancing and doing weird acting. There were many incidents in between that took place while we were dancing. Those incidents are really very funny and almost impossible to express in words. Total hilarious mountains! While I’m still writing the verdict, I’m smiling alone in the room where nobody is around.

There was no pause over our laughter. Really, Sahana made each and every passing moment so funny. I was the Heroine and she was the Hero of the song sequence. We did not slip even one beat of the song. She grabed my hand and took me into her arms and gracefully just like SRK left me to dance on my own. Seriously we could even give run to the real stars…we were so good into dancing. Payal was our tape recorder. Stopped and got forward in all the songs that we wanted her to sing. We had a great time together, laughing and singing. Namita, Korobi and Babita were the live audience, applauding to our moves!

  • NEXT:
Anupum Sir was teaching us Physics. It was a nice class, why..!
Let me tell you what happened today. He came into our class and took out a huge book and searches randomly some very confusing problem. He wrote the question on the board. Then asked us to find the solution of the question.

I and Payal looked each other face insanity. She lifted her eyebrow to ask if I knew it. My facial expression expressed that I was also in the same boat with her. Soon we were observed by Sir. He came to us and first asked Payal, “Bujhi sa (Do u Understand!)”. She said “No”.

He leaned forward to her desk, shifted all her books on to many side of table and wrote the whole solution on the desk with the chalk explaining the equation. When he was writing on her desk I was also trying to understand and simultaneously copied the same in my notebook. The moment he was done with it, he abruptly rubbed and cleared the solution with his hand. Well this is the way he always does.

Soon he gave a glance over me, and asked, “Understood”. I replied, “No Sir”. He gave a cute little smile and explained me too in the same manner each and every step of the equation. This was really very sweet of him, taking so much of pain to explain. But I still could not get the formula right. Perhaps, mean while I was also busy in sniffing the cool sweet cologne he had used today. Apparently, he is popular in school for his cool strong Colognes!

  • NEXT:
Today was also a CCA (Class Cultural Activity) program’s drawing Competition. The topic was “PICNIC WITH THE FAMILY” for the seniors and “NATURAL CALAMITY for juniors” (I come into senior Category). One hour were given to complete the painting. Srikant Sir(our English Teacher), being the co-coordinator of the CCA program was present there for the whole ONE hour.

His presence of disturbance for me started with a strange compliment!
He said, “So you been learn drawing at home..”,
I replied instantly, “No, Sir”.
~ At this with a strange laugh he replied, “What! You don’t learn drawing and get the first prize every time by itself.”
In some firm yet humble tone, I said, “Sir, This is my hobby.”
His was looked happier to my reply that drawing is my hobby.

So here from given one hour, I lost my 5minutes and 55 minutes started:

Then for next ten minutes I kept thinking, how stupid topic was given to draw.
I wondered, “what made Sir decide such topic, PICNIC WITH THE FAMILY..”

Again, the next ten minutes I brought some scenery sketch into my mind and tried to lay same on the drawing sheet.

Within next ten minutes I finished my drawing and was ready to color it. By the time, numerous times Sirkant Sir kept disturbing me by standing around me. I really can’t concentrate to paint or draw when people are around me, especially when people are teachers.
~ I feel very uncomfortable, when somebody is constantly staring me and my drawing which is yet to be completed. It was one of the most irritating moments of the hour.

Soon keeping an eye on the time passing by, I tried in completing my painting as quickly as possible. I thought, I already lost five minutes talking to Sir and rest minutes in thinking about the weird topic.

In my painting, PICNIC WITH THE FAMILY, I made a huge umbrella set on the banks of the river, under which a husband is sitting and feeding a child, next to it a wife playing with their little daughter and a cute puppy with the ball around. An air is blowing breezily and the woman at the same time is enjoying the scenery.
And suddenly Srikant Sir commented that the woman should be sitting there and play with the baby and the man must play with that little girl.

I wondered again, “it is just a painting Sir..why go into so much details…”
Moreover, I was contradicting with his views too!

Anyway, I confidently replied, Sir this woman is of 21st century, thus she is enjoying the beauty and bliss of the place, where as the man is sitting under the ORDERS given of his wife to take care of the little child.
The answer was full of logic and laughter filled the room. I even noticed Art sir at the corner laughing a loud at the answer.

Okay, this was one the Jamuni (in Assamese we call it as funniest..) and most memorable moment of the day!

  • NEXT:
Finally with all the best wishes of my friends and juniors of the school…my painting was complete at the dot moment.

  • NEXT:
I mostly while painting, don’t watch what others are painting. It gives me tension before hand! And it results that I start doing the worst, while I worry. This is what I today experienced when I somehow saw from a far distance, the drawing of Purnimal, Somyajeet (Both my classmates) and Ravi Shanker (Ultimate painter, Brigu bhaiya’s younger brother).

  • NEXT:
It is really bad of me. In a way, I can see that mostly what I think happens. May be it is the will-power or just a sheer co-incident. While I was painting..(Honestly! I dint wanted to happen things so bad for anyone) I was thinking of Purnimal and Somyajeet. It was just a blink for a Micro second a Negative Thought that Struck in My Mind. Finally I was surprised to see the things turn up this way. Both the guys did a beautiful drawing…simply expraordinary..but both were a truly unlucky..as their paintings were incomplete.

It was a strange experience observed!

  • NEXT:
In the Last period, we found these applications. Something that we are learning in our English class, to write Notice and Application! Interestingly we applied it to our real daily life too!
~ Kindly check the links too at the end of the post in SnapShop.

Boyz said:

Back at home, today, I learnt SWOT analysis, taught my my paa.
By such analysis we can develop ourselves into a much successful person. ~ “SWOT=Study Hard!”

  • NEXT:
Two days latter, I have been today declared as the first prize winner of the CCA programe’s drawing competition. It was Srikant Sir announcing on the stage. More than me Tanushree was happy, as she is the house captain of the “Kamakhya House”. My winning have added the high score points to our house. It was a great feeling to see my friends getting so happy for my deeds. Preeti, Trishani, Afreen hugged and congratulated me and Tanushree. Jaya, came running to me and started shouting in her very soft voice, “Party… party!”

  • NEXT:
(maa-paa)Ammy and Appa are very happy for me and my prize. Appa told me that on Saturday there is another painting competition for celebrating the “Productivity Week”.
I’m so glad that he like me participating and encourages me so well every time.

  • Goswami Sir(Hindi Sir): It was rare if he ever missed his class, perhaps that day was an exception. He is one of the Best Teacher for our batch. Been most encouraging and loving at heart.
  • Srikant Sir (English Sir): One of the most intellectual and philosophical teacher. Our batch shall always remember his teaching and the way he was perfect and systematic in everything he did.
  • CCA is Class Curricular Activities in school.
  • The snap shot have the writing is of year 2001. between class XII.

  37. Rachana, so nice to see all the 'school talk' going on here... It makes one so very nostalgic! I am reminded of my own school days and that was few more years back. Loved my college days too...Real fun! I still am lingering on those wonderful moments. Some of my friends do say that I still haven't comeout of that time frame...which is absolutely true...

    I sometimes even dream of writing my exams...hehe...nervous and tensed!

    Great read, Rachi:)

  38. @ Tavish Chadha

    This gives me immense happiness and satisfaction...that you connect with the whole aura of the post! Plus u liked the concept of writig journal!

    When I did it long back..nevr thought one day i shall be sharing on such plateform...but I knew...after 10years or more it will be great feeling to go back directly into the hidden lost past scene! Definitely a true on of the usual day yet so beautiful and enchanting!

    Good to know..that u still have that Libr. card! I know it is more precious than any I-Card you posses today:)

    Ofcoarse...do come up with lovely memories..I will be the first person to endross your childhood stories.. dnt u worry!

    Really dont understand why people say forget Past and move on...I just move on..BUT with the Treasured Memories :)

    It is great to have U on this page..do visit again!

  39. @ DeepazArtz

    O dear! We got so much in common! Hanging back in those school days or college days times comes so naturally...!

    I wonder reading u..why should we come out of that frame..when we know it is so inspiring and brings back all the creativity and faith!

    Let us surrender together :)

    Bwr: Yeah..even i see myself dreaming about my exams...yet those chemistry formulas and elements flying around my head/brain...all around those metals and non metal formulas...h2so4..o2..o2..need Oxygen...breath in dreams :)

    Luv u!
    Thanks so much for visiting the page :)

    Keep the Spark Alive..

  40. well u know what... stuff that we do just for the heck of it somehow do give us returns later on life and the ironically most of stuff we do(at least in my case) expecting to reach some logical gains later on don't generally happen the way we want to... its really nice that u have all these memories documented...

    as for the past i feel the same... good memories, bad memories and even some painful ones, i cherish them all... they give me the strength whenever i am low. :)

    Thank u so much for the flattering comments on my post...

    and lastly love the way u end ur comments with keep the spark alive so ill end it the same way too....

    Keep the spark alive!!

  41. Hi Rachana/rasna (रचना/ रसना)

    Whole blog is amazing, i mean with the detail which you have written its like going to the places and incidents and revisiting them one by one. Its truly a time travel.hey you note those incidents in your dairy during school hours or at home recollecting them one by one. Whichever way may be but i salute your memory. We all know how good you are in drawing, probably the best i would say from our school. Bhrigu da and his kid brother, Puranamal Gandhi, Bittu, Bidyut(best in shading) etc were right up there too. But you amazed us all with your memory. Hey plz do write about B.N. Bari, Tripathi Sir, Chakru Sir, A.k. Goswami sir, Rai sir(kadar khan), P.k. Borka Koti sir, S.B. Kalita Sir(library), Shrikanth Sir, Virendra Sir, Pandit Sir, Bhupen Sir, Bakshi Sir, Behra Sir(Games), Augostine sir, R.K.

  43. We all miss school days, don't we?
    You took this opportunity to time travel to those wonderful days, huh?
    Nice! :)

  44. A magnificent post :)

    now those words have set my memory on a ride back :)

    keep penning :)

  45. That was real time travel. You really took us back to 2001. I was reminded of a conversation I was having with a Bulgarian friend of mine about purpose of life. She remarked "Life has not big purpose. It is all about living those little moments and capturing them in one's mind' Apparently her mom had died when she was 13. But she said she still had those beautiful memories of those wonderful moments with her mom fresh in her mind. Somehow reading your post reminded me of that conversation. Best of luck for the BATOM.

  46. That was going down the memory lane. True, school days are special and having a diary helps create sweet memories forever!
    And you have a beautiful handwriting!
    Cheers and all the best for BAT-8! :)
