Reminiscing…

My darling mother had got a few boxes of things ready for me to go through this time.

There were old photos and various paper items. Things from my past. Things that would hold significance for me.

I haven’t finished yet but it has been such fun going through the photos!

I’ll share these with you…. little Ritu going to school for the first time in her oversized blazer,  with the tweed coats and bobble hat we had to wear in the winter and the straw hats as our summer attire!!!

Pink and maroon uniform… wasn’t I lucky?!

        Chal koi naa! Aaapaan ne wadde ho ke ki karna ae…aidaan hi theek haige haan…
        I wrote a poem Time Warp http://wp.me/p48sX4-3o on this issue. Till around five years ago I was also like that…people younger to me used to point that out and make me self-conscious.

        I remember that poem!!

        Jawaani shareer se nahin,
        dil se mehsoos hoti hai
        Aur hamara dil toh bilkul bachcha hai!

        Hope my Hindi made sense!

        I come from a long line of young at heart people… and I hope to carry on for a long time yet!!!
        You’re as young as you feel!

        Yup! One of my early poems.
        Dil to bachcha hai ji – reminds me I’ve to see that movie. Yes, your Hindi poetry does make sense but my Punjabi is less than perfect. Do carry on like that, and you are still young anyway. My mom too is very young at heart. Something to do with our vibrant culture.

    Very cute pics, who ever made the uniform decision obviously didn’t know the colours clashed. You pulled it off though because you were so cute 😊

    You look so pretty- when I was growing up, we had only black and white photos but none of them, show me as cute as you were.
    Such innocence. Loved the photos.

    Nice nostalgic photos, Ritu… If we only have facebook during our younger years, we have lots of pictures to share. Your mom took good care of your photos, it is still like it was taken yesterday! πŸ™‚
