The Love Continues…

  1. Dear Richa,Wow! U were also in Barrow House!?!Ditto, here. I, too, was a Prefect and also led the Boy’s squad at the Marchpast in 1973.(U could check that in the fapsdelhi site’s “photos” menu in the album – JSBatra at FAPS). Barrow House was tops, that year, too!A lot of dirty, polluted water has passed by the Akshardham Temple, since. We’ve greyed… matured… raised families and as you’ve mentioned… The Love Continues!FlashbackOutside on the roadA group of rowdy school boys,Boisterous and mischevious;Their talk full of energy,Shouting out to no-one.Suddenly, inside the houseThere’s a flurry of activity.FlashbackOutside on the roadSome school-girls just passed by,Lost in thoughts,hopes and dreams;Tinkling laughter filtered thruClambering up the spineSlowly, in the whole houseSoothing sunlight prevailed.FlashbackOutside on the roadAs if a Bazaar is set.Curfew, Bandh, Loot,Marriage,Festival, Jaloos,Scary, smiling, weeping.However, in this aging mind,Life,once again,appears to be Alive!Luv,Dr J S Batra

  5. Well, what do I say. I do miss school a lot, and at times I feel I just wasted a lot of years studying and I just want to go back and make up for it, but your post makes me feel all the more guilty. :)Same problem as Amiya’s. Can’t enlarge the 1st two pics. Scribbling day was fun in my school too. I still have that shirt with me, didn’t let mom wash it, or sew it. They tore of the pocket. It’s been 4 years but I still remember who wrote what. I just took out that shirt and relived all of that this winter. It was all so good. Humbled by Dr. Batra’s description. I bow to thee, sir, for these touching words.
