Corporate Social Negligence!

down the memory lane….

Posted in Books by clash on March 15, 2005

This morning as i had to search for some stuff, i moved on to that part of my house thats forlorn and forsaken for a long long time. its usual coz things that are almost dilapidated rarely arouse our interest! anyway i really dont know how all those things are still in my home, but as i was digging down under this dusty heaps of clothes and books, i found some articles which propelled my joy to boundless extent. i found some of my kiddie clothes, which i would have worn when i was some 1 or 2 years old, some story books that moulded my life.

i was so happy that infact i was gazing at those dresses for around 15 mins turning it around and around. infact i really did not beleive that it was mine, i went to my mother and asked her if it was mine, got a positive reply, then immediately told her that, that dusty heap is not the place it should be in and took it for a wash and now safe among my clothes. then i took those books which almost is of the soviet publications, which aroused my memories of the disintegrated soviet republic and the shattering of the biggest communist dream!(happens!!). some books had stories written tolstoy for kids ,read some of them and is safe in my cupboard. i realised that i had so many books some of them taken away by my realtives, when they had kids, i think i will set out on a journey to procure all of them and will be cursing everyone who has allowed those precious books to be eaten by moths and torn by their outrageous kids!! (i was never one!!)

These things are the only portal to my halcyon days, which make me nostalgic now a days, i have lost those empty grounds on which i studied my first lessons of football and cricket and all kind of “humanly” nuisances which moulded my life. spaces have been eaten up by mushrooming houses , people have become sophisticated, kids no more come out in the scorching sun of summer and play, they are bound to their T.V sets or computer and i too… but i still love that so called “ruffian” way of living life which i will not be able to do anymore…

This is a cry from the heart of a “mass” person who was later moulded to some kind of sophisticated human. (am i??, no.. i dont think so.. deep inside im different!!)

    hey dude its funny man.. all of us are nostalgic nowadays.. had this rocking horse and toy car that i had once.. had big fight in front of one shop to get that from my dad.. and ya i remember these books written by tolstoy.. my grandad also had given me and my cousins some books like this.. i liked one book in particular.. it was called the crocodile and the sun. th story is still ethched in my head… but never gave any importance to all this.. due to some personal reasons.. which i plan to blog later.. and dude there is a big difference in the way u write after the hydi call.. i guess its sophistication all the way.. there is no other word for it.. good ol memories mate.. good ol ones..

    Mr.hafiz dont be so cryptic!!

    “didn’t know you could actually write something down memory lane! 😉 ” these words are equally cryptic too…
    anyway from here onwards i hope i will have only good things to remember abt my past, not that i wont be able to write acrimonious things, but really dont want to… alas!! the key to the whole things is in someone else’s hands.. hope its safe out there :)- he he…..

    well… good for u. if i dig up my past its all here and there. never was in one place for too long, but i generally tend to avoid my past

    well goog for u… if i dig my pat up its in pieces here and there. i guess its the down side of not getting to grow up in your own place… i guess thats why i avoid my past most of the time…
    anyways…. not all that nostalgic now… workin!!

    I guess the intensity of getting nostalgic just keeps growing with age … And for some weird reason the only way I find solace abt the fact is by sharing those thoughts with others. so i think it was really bold of you to show the innocent feelings on paper..kudos rhino!!!!

    this aint a place for blaah.. blaah.. u know…

  13. glimmer said, on March 25, 2005 at 9:34 am

    blah blah??? defenitely NOT! strong dissapproval! it takes a Man/ Woman to actually scribble past into a world of words. i agree with nair and CONGRATS honey! it is a cool peice of writing and hope to see more of this kind from you {although you rarely, very very rarely go down memory lane} but then exceptions are always there.

    and the “key” is safe!!! very very safe and very soon it is gonna be locked forever! 😉
