Gone are the days

The school reopened in June, 
And we settled in our new desks and benches! 

We queued up in book depot, 
And got our new books and notes! 

We wanted two Sundays and no Mondays, 
Yet managed to line up daily for the morning prayers. 
We learnt writing with slates and pencils, and 
Progressed To fountain pens and ball pens and then Micro tips! 

We began drawing with crayons and evolved to 
Color pencils and finally sketch pens! 

We started calculating first with tables and then with 
Clarke's tables and advanced to Calculators and computers! 

We chased one another in the 
corridors in Intervals, and returned to the classrooms 
Drenched in sweat! 

we had lunch in classrooms, corridors, Playgrounds, 
under the trees and even in cycle sheds! 

all the colors in the world, 
Decorated the campus on the Second Saturdays! 

a single P.T. period in the week's Time Table, 
Was awaited more eagerly than the monsoons! 

cricket was played with writing pads as bats, 
And Neckties and socks rolled into balls! 

few played "kabadi" and "Kho-Kho" in scorching sun, 
While others simply played "book cricket" in the Confines of classroom! 
Of fights but no conspiracies, 
Of Competitions but seldom jealousy! 

we used to watch Live Cricket telecast, 
In the opposite house in Intervals and Lunch breaks! 

Gone are the days 
Of Sports Day, 
and the annual School Day 

Gone are the days 
Of the stressful Quarterly, 
Half Yearly and Annual Exams, 
And the most enjoyed holidays after them! 

Gone are the days 
Of tenth standards, when 
We Spent almost the whole year writing revision tests! 
We learnt, 
We enjoyed, 
We played, 
We won, 
We lost, 
We laughed, 
We cried, 
We fought, 
We thought. 

With so much fun in them, so many friends, 
So much experience, all this and more! 

Gone are the days 
When we used to talk for hours with our friends! 
Now we don't have time to say a `Hi'! 

Gone are the days 
When we played games on the road! 
Now we Code on the road with laptop! 

Gone are the days 
When we saw stars Shining at Night! 
Now we see stars when our code doesn't Work! 

Gone are the days 
When we sat to chat with Friends on grounds! 
Now we chat in chat rooms.....! 

Gone are the days 
Where we studied just to pass! 
Now we study to save our job! 

Gone are the days 
Where we had no money in our pockets and still fun filled on our hearts!! 
Now we have the atm as well as credit card but with an empty heart!! 

Gone are the days 
Where we shouted on the road! 
Now we don't shout even at home 

Gone are the days 
Where we got lectures from all! 
Now we give lectures to all... like the one I'm doing now....!! JJJJ 

Gone are the days 
But not the memories, which will be 
Lingering in our hearts for ever and ever and 
Ever and ever and ever ..... 

Gone are the Days.... But still there are lot more Days to come in our Life!!
