Time Flies!





When I was a kid, the world was so big. I had just one routine every day. I used to wake up early in the morning, maintain my school bag and get ready for the school. I had lots of friends at school, we used to play, run in the corridors, spoil our dress and never study. Actually for me, school was the place where I used to have lots of fun. I never used to finish my lunch and at home I was always scolded for this by my mom. I remember, during coming back to home, there used to be plenty of kiosks of chaat, chuski, candy floss, ice-cream parlours etc. But now, there are games parlour, mobile shops and shopping malls and still it feels so quiet. Maybe, the world is becoming smaller.


When I was a kid, the evenings were used to be so long. As soon as the warmth of sun did not use to affect me anymore, I used to be out of my house. There were countless games we used to play; hide and seek, tippy tippy tap and many other games. Mom used to call me after 3-4 hours of my playing, chalo beta, enough u have played and this was how I was forced to be back at home. Now, I cannot feel the magic of evening. The day finishes without an evening. Maybe, the time doesn’t like to stay longer now.

When I was a kid, friendship used to be very strong. All day and all night, we just used to play, gossip and fight for silly reasons. There was no Diwali and no Holi without friends. Now, many festivals go by and I what I only receive is an SMS or an e-mail. Maybe, the relationships are changing now.

When I was a kid, the games were so weird. Now; work, seminars, movies and internet doesn’t permit me to spend few moments with myself and friends. Maybe, the life is changing now.

I am longing to live those days again. Life is so small and you don’t even realize that you’re changed and people around you have changed. We are just running and running and not living the moment to its fullest. Life is meant to be enjoyed and not destroyed. Live like a king but I’ll rather live like a queen. :)
