The Wonder Years
It was a very serious institution. We tackled issues that no one dared to touch.
Sometimes we studied hard.
Sometimes we even conducted scientific experiments.
But mostly we just posed.
And we partied harder.
You would wonder how did we ever manage to pass with so much posing and partying. Well so did we.
The solution was simple. The moment exams came, we started praying to the appropriate Gods.
We did graduate though.
But we kept wondering how on earth did we do it.
We had the best sunrise in the world.
Sometimes the heat got to us.
But we knew how to cool off.
When the time came, we packed up and left to conquer distant lands.
And we celebrated everything. Birthdays. Neighbour’s birthday. Exam success. Exam failure. Sporting success. Sporting failure. Diwali. Holi. New Years. Especially birthdays.
Sometimes there were differences.
But they always ended up in laughter.
Sure, there were freaks.
But mostly it was lovely place. Filled with amazing people.
For those two years, it was home. Our home.
