There are some moments in life when you actually feel that your childhood (probably not the right word) has come to an end. When you feel you cant behave like a brat and expect people to say- oh she’s just a kid. Being the youngest in my family and also at my work place, I never thought of myself as a grown up. Even when I started earning. Yesterday I met one of my closest friends & childhood playmate. She’s getting married and leaving the country in a few days . I knew it all along but when I said bye to her yesterday , it finally sunk into me that everything is changing. The house where we spent countless days playing choppu and other invented games is going to belong to someone else soon. God, I’l never forget those days. And it’s horrible to know it’l never come back.

Yeah...those child hood times are so tender and something that will never escape from my memory...it shall always be treasured n visited frequently n spoken about and smiled at in a warm tone...Things do evolve and we have to go the cycle...Take the best, let it sink in and you will slowly be floating on a leaf....:)

Babu Moshai said…
yup,so true,it really feels sad sumtimes to realize that the childhood dayz will never cum back,
But then again thats true for every passing moment,we miss it once it is over!!
Da Rodent said…
nopes.. my folks never got me those g.i.joes and he-mans and hotwheels and stuff... Absolutely no history of that.. hmm.. interesting., what did i play with back then...hmm.. jeez., should ask my mom. :P
Arpita said…
babu moshai- ya wat u say is true. But i guess childhood is one phase that everybody misses. Probably we shld treat each other as kids always!
p.s- i love ur choice of name;)
susmita said…
the innocense of those good days is what i miss...
Da Rodent said…
@sush: Hmm., that innocense promised no heartbreaks, no loneliness., nothing.. You were just so happy with yer silly wooden dolls, and matchbox cars., and life was never painful.. Grr., suddenly growing up has become such a pain in the ___..
KK said…
Looking back always looks good and funny. But nothing can replace the childhood days. Two things I cherish are my childhood days(filled with looty) and days in hostel.

Nice blog, Mez first time here.
Arpita said…

Arpita said…
