Another golden memories....

Hmm when am remembering all the old days how can I forgot the golden period of each one of our lives... School ....Yeah you are right school days can never be forgotten and each one of us must be having some memory chords attached isn't it :)
Ladies and Gentlemen Here are few of my memories of mySchool days....remember the first time kid is forced to go to school..........
Yeah I remember how kids make different excuses to skip school.... luckily we don't have to do that as my parents were supportive and if my sister's or it's me who don't feel like going to school just have to ask them and they won't say no... :P although I have good memories and I loved going to school and even got highest attendance prize :D Now when I think of that a smile appears :)
Okie do you remember your fist pencil... yeah the first time you were handed a pencil and notebook and you felt as if now you have whole world in your hands...
Do you remeber using pencil every possible place where it is not suppose to be :D and avoiding scribbling over the note pad... putting lines on refridgerator, walls, school benches, even classmate's shirt .... what a fun man, wasn't that.... I remember collecting all sorts of pencils and then one very long one with a funny face or a hand at it's top which could be used for scratching back too apart from writing :P... multitasking you see :) Don't you remeber shrapening your pencil every two minutes and just thinking uski pencil meri pencil say zyada theekhi kaisay :P And then every second day asking mom for new pencil.... and she saying abhi subah hi to dee thee where is that :P.....
And yes checking the point of pencil by pinching it to ur frd..... And laughing that silly antiques :)
And remember writing those silly things on black board when teacher is not around... or drawing faces while she is away....... And laughing at her angry expressions :P
Teacher's have a real difficult time handling kids :)

Remember the craft classes where in you get a freedom to create anything beyond your imagination.. Where in we can color horses to green or make a orstrich out of egg shell... or just smear our hands with glue and smudge our clothes with all sorts of colors and mom looking for surf excel and praying ki ghol mein daag gol :P
Poor mom's :)
And then best part sharing each other's lunch
Although that lunch sneaking was done in the second period only under the table lols... and then makeing ourself free for that lunch time to play in school playground.... Playing Hide and seek, tippy tippy tap, Stapo, cricket with cardboards during exam times :P and many more which I don't remember ....

Sharing our lunch there was so much fun and then bigger fun to eat someone's else tiffin without his knowing :) then offering ours to him....

Exam fever.... being a kid also examination fever grips and then helping other's in studies... Trying level best to come at top position so that mom , dad are happy... and answering them why I scored less in maths and more in hindi.... why my friend scored more than me...

Those golden days will never come back now.... Never

Still have childhood friends, still share all those things .....
A wish to become a kid back again :)

Okie La Weekend is here.....

Wishing you all Happy Weekend :)

I realized this is my 51st Post on Blogspot :)

Cherished Memories......

Was sitting idle and suddenly strike an idea why not write for the place from where I belong to. The place where I spend most of my time..... where I completed my schooling and the place
where I graduated...

Where I had my most memorable moment... YES my first date with Sachin..
the place where we both decided to get married.

Where we took decision to follow each other's religion and took vow to spend our lives together...

The Place I miss the most....

My home town.. Chandigarh :)

Place which I have left now with lots and lots of memories along with. This post I think is going to be mine biggest post ever as am not going to limit my thoughts and just jotting down what ever is coming to my mind....

Where Shall I start from...

Chandigarh the city beautiful..

We shifted to Mohali phase 7 in the year 1994 and from that year till 2004 I spend my time there only. So a decade almost and fell in love with the place and who won't. It is such place..

Okie I'll give a brief history of the place...

Chandigarh is the first planed modern city of India designed by the French architect LeCorbusier...

Chandigarh is famous for following:

  • Planning and Architechture
  • Quality of Life
  • High Educational Level
  • Pollution free environment
  • Aware and Active citizens
Chandigarh serves as the Joint Capital of both Punjab and Haryana states. Total area of the union territory is 114

ahaan rest of the information can be gathered from Here

or else google to hai hee ;)

Although best thing I do want to mention abt chandigarh is that

every sector has atleast:

  • 1 school
  • 1 market
  • 1 garden/public park
  • 1 gurudwara and mandir

And it is a common scene to see citizens taking morning and evening walk and kids enjoying the jhoolas (rides) in the park and then yes best thing to mention no markets on main roads so
no traffic jams and proper parking for every market.

I just miss the clean, wide and soothing roads of the place....Trees on both side of roads make the drive pleasant.

Apart from the individual gardens of each sector there are few famous ones too

*Rose Garden

*Shanti kunj (our third date's venue :P)

*Garden of Fragrence

*Hibisicus Garden

*Terraced Garden

*Botanical Garden

*Fitness Trails

*Rock Garden (Shri Nek Chands creation)

some garden pics slide shows can be viewed

Special Thanks to Baiju Joseph, Some of the pics used here are from his valueable collections :)

Year 1995....
When I completed my 10th in one of the models school.... what fun it was to study there

Year 1997....
When I completed my 12th Commerce from Sri Guru Gobind Singh Senior Secondary school. Where in I was school head girl (yeah it was again fun to be school head girl) *teacher's favorite* :P and that year I was topper of the school too (only golden period of my acadamics :D)

Year 2000...
My graduation completed in commerce... from SGGS college sec 26 affilated to Panjab University Panjab University wherein we spend lot of time ................
Year 2004....
My Post graduation completed ....MCA but that I did from Patiala from Punjabi University

Youth Festivals....
oh what fun were they to be a part of and too visit all that

Then window shopping in sector 17 heart of city beautiful (cudn't afford to do actual shopping there :P) Sector 17 is main shopping and commercial centre of Chandigarh.This vast commercial complex is a pedestrian's paradise with four main piazzas meeting at a 'chowk'. It provides something for everyone, from hectic business activity to unhurried window shopping and even crowd gazing in the vicinity of the fountain. Air-conditioned showrooms and departmental stores cater to the needs of shoppers.

Needless to mention the other places worth visiting....

  • Government Museum and Art Gallery
  • Museum of the evolution of life
  • Child Art Gallery
  • National Gallery of Portraits
  • International dolls museum
  • Punjab Kala Kendra
  • The Rock Garden..... We had spend time there too :">
It is created by Nek Chand and spread over 64 acres. Thevisitors are led through a maze of paths, chambers and canyons,each presenting a glimpse of a fantasy world. it is unique in its kind and is made by cutting the rocks and using all waste and discarded products.

  • Sukhna Lake...

The most memorable one for both of us...
Its a man made lake spread over 3 square kilometers.
This is favorite spot for bird watchers too. As from December through February, one can see many species of aquatic birds from Central Asia and Siberia. yeah these are the stairs where Sachin and I sat for the first time and he asked very hesitantly "Can I hold your Hand?" And the next question was "What next?"
And I replied "We getting married" :">

hmm although after marriage we didn't get chance to go back there... hopefully this time we'll make it :)

  • Leisure Valley
  • Bougainvillea Garden
  • Zakir Rose Garden
... Named after India's President, Zakir Hussain, the garden was established in 1967 under the guidance of Chandigarh's first Chief Commissioner Dr M.S. Randhawa. The largest Rose Garden in Asia, it is spread over an area of 27 acres and has more than 17,000 plants representing some 1,600 varieties of roses as well as several fountains.his garden is the venue of the annual Rose festival, an event listed on the national calendar of fairs and festivals. This is one of the main
cultural events of the city and draws thousands of visitors.

And Yes I do miss the Rose Festival........
What a huge crowd it draws every year and now haven't been to the festival for last 2 yrs....
