I Remember…

  • being dragged away from a snow covered road by my mother, my only memory of the place where I was born. May be I was playing in the snow, or I was jumping in it, I really donโ€™t know, just a flash with my mother holding my hand and taking me away with her. I lived there for the first four and a half years of my life, no pictures just that one memory.
  • waiting to board a bus to my native village wearing my favourite green frock, crying afterwards because the road was blocked and I couldnโ€™t visit my favourite place in the whole wide world.

  • collecting empty packets of Dilbagh gutka with my friend because apparently 50 empty packets would win you a Shaktimaan costume. Yes, we were stupid but in our defence Shaktimaan was a rage back then, many people jumped off from balconies for him, we fools just collected dirty gutka packets.

  • running through the streets of my small town wearing black pants with floral prints all over them. For some reason they were my favourite. Now that I think of it, I would have surely looked like a clown back then.

  • asking for 2-5 Rs commission for every work anyone would ask me to do- getting something from market, oiling hair, being an eyewitness to siblings fight, watering plants. By the time I was 13, I had collected 5000 Rs just from those commissions. I just realised I had way more savings back then.

  • having a list of people I loved, with my mom and brother topping the list on alternate days and my dad being the last member on it, behind almost every member of my extended family.
  • looking at the sky in winters and waiting for snowfall, dancing on the sight of first few snowflakes, sneaking into the garden to taste snow.

  • always supporting the underdogs- no one liked Abhishek Bachchan so I declared him to be my favourite hero, wouldnโ€™t hear a word against him.

  • being scared of ghosts. Always keeping a family member outside the washroom, couldnโ€™t imagine being left alone in case a ghost attacked.
  • Thinking that the horizon is where India ended and that other countries lie just beyond the mountains with Pakistan, China and America being the only foreign countries I knew back then. Yes, my geographical sense was at its lowest but in my defence I did live in a district that bordered two foreign countries, China and Nepal. I win!img_0331.jpg

P.S. I just felt like chronicling all these memories on my blog. It would be fun to read all these childhood memories someday.

    • I thought I was the only Abhishek fan in this world. ๐Ÿ˜›
      For me, village life is the best. I miss my childhood days too.
      And well my mom doubled that amount and deposited that in a bank. I know that’s boring but years later I only got the money and spent it on my studies. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. That was a very beautiful postโค also hello friend I also happen to like underrated actors, you never know who might the public like and turn into stars while like many fields underrated people remain to be so!

    • Thank you.. ๐Ÿ™‚
      And you are so right about underrated actors. A lot many of them never get any chance. I guess Abhishek is still there because of his family. Otherwise no one would have given him so many chances.

    • Well, I was very cute as a child. Adulthood has ruined me. ๐Ÿ˜›
      I am starting to feel that all the bloggers somehow like Abhishek Bachchan. no one in my family or friends liked him at all. I was the only one defending him all the time.

      And thank you so much for the complement. It is indeed a beautiful place. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks Vishal for this lovely comment. These were just my childhood memories. Aren’t we all innocent as kids? And I am no entrepreneur, growing up I’ve wasted a lot of money. The child me was smarter than the adult me. ๐Ÿ™‚
