Sometime back I saw some photographs that I didn't know I had. I decided to put some here along with a couple of my school photographs that I stumbled across on a friend's Facebook page.
This is a photograph from Std. V or VI. The best part of it was that I didn't know where I was. Jaya had to point me out to me.
|Where am I?|
This is a rare photograph of a school picnic because I don't think I have ever again worn such a psychedelic shirt. (Whenever I see this song
from the Malayalam movie Classmates
, I am reminded of this trip - not because of any incident in the movie but because this song involves a college bus trip. Incidentally, the movie contains one of my favorite Malayalam songs
|Red Storm Rising|
A time when this song fit:
|With Jaya soon after our marriage was fixed|
|On tour in Bangalore with friends from Bajaj Auto Ltd.|
|Looking sophisticated in Lungi at IIMA|
|My room at IIMA|
|With my doom mates at IIMA|
|Sujit when he was about six months old|
|Sujit when he was 3 years old|
(Sujit is now in a boarding school in Kodaikanal.)
In Such a Long Journey
by Rohinton Mistry, when Gustad Noble walks around Chor Bazar in Mumbai, it brings back a flood of memories from childhood and he muses, "How little it took to wake up so many sleeping memories." Indeed!
