The Good Old Days

By Ninad Pundalik

There used to be a time, when the only thing we watched TV for was cartoons…

There used to be a time, when we would comb through libraries for the latest Hardy Boys and Harry Potter…

There used to be a time, when we were innocent…

There used to be a time, when the only thing that mattered were friends…

There used to be a time, when the report card at the end of the semester was a highly dreaded peice of paper…

There used to be a time, when we would make pure fun of our teachers…

There used to be a time, when our parents and teachers were our first idols…

There used to be a time, when all our actions were spontaneous, and not planned and conceitful…

There used to be a time, when the candy at the canteen used to be a weekly treat…

There used to be a time, when we dreamed big…

There used to be a time, called childhood…

There used to be a place, called school…

They were the good old days… Never to come back again…

I miss you all… Ashish, Rohan, Saurabh, Udyam,  Anant, Manoj, Tejashree, Pushkar, Tejas, and everyone from RJEMHS **& Xavier’s**…
