Going back to memory lanes again...

Yeah me again remembering my old times. As my mom and my sisters going to visit us in summer vacations I just remembered my summer vacations when I was in school :)
When ever May end used to approach we kids used to start talking abt the vacations, and the spots to visit, what fun , whom are we going to visit, Oh man what fun. And then decisions were taken how to ise the spare time, playing , sketching or involving in some crafts. Some of us even think of joining some summer classes , dance or painting kind of those workshops, I never had joined
any...
And when finally the holidays were declared officially it used to bring other side of the coin too....
Yes you guys guessed it right "HOLIDAY HOMEWORK"
eeekssss I hated it from the core of my heart. There were ppl
among us who used to finish it within first two days of holidays but I was kinda lazy bones who will touch her homework in last two days. Gosh I remember those homework some interesting and some so weird that I used to crib a lot. Why do they make us work this way, it is not fair at all. Out of those one was CURSIVE WRITING exercise. urrgghhh our English teacher used to ask us fill those cursive writing books and dunno why can't she understand holidays were meant to be fun and not to do this boring task. Even I had filled numerous cursive writing books still today am not following it and worst of it sometimes I can't even read what have I scribbled :P
Not to mention sachin's handwriting I guess he never filled any handwriting book :P
And what to mention of those teacher's god they just don't have kids I guess coz they would ask us to finish all the syllabus covered till date so that as soon as holidays will finish, test time will come. Why do they gave us holidays for :(
So we have to finish all the syllabus of hindi, english, maths, S.st. and S.ci.
#:-S
And then we were still not spared as all these teachers will also give creative homework too.....
They used to ask us collect different leaves from where ever you go for vacations, Now they except us to collect samples and not enjoy beauty :( Not to mention those scrap books which were suppose to be filled up with different kinds of pulses, cloth samples, etc etc. And yes science teacher was crazy, she once asked us to collect various nest, those which are abandoned by the birds. Now what does she think that we will take our magnifying glass, a binocular put on our googles and jacket and go on mission :D funny
I remember one of my classmate, I forgot his name(we were in class five I guess) He got a nest with live bird kids, four of them inside. :P great hustle bustle in class and when our teacher got to know about that she almost screamed and that kid answered innocently you never said birds should not be inside nest :)
Aah I never used to collect any of this. Don't have such patience to look for them :)
All I was happy on vacations is this is the time to visit naaniji (granny) now. Just use to wait to get there. I just loved her aaloo parantha's mint chutney and sarson ka saag with makki ki roti:) And then regular visits to other relatives and all was fun. Then fun part will come to an end and I used to get in depression now. Oh god two days left , no homework, no scrap books , no charts and in panic would complete half of them which I knew were more important as had got strict teachers :P And when school use to re-open by that time would think of excuses which I haven't made last vacations :D
Talking of school re-opening how can I forget re-opening after the annual exam, when all of us were to experience new, new class, new bags, new uniform, new shoes, new books, fresh notebooks neatly covered with brown sheets and plastic covering with those minnie and micky mouse stickers and new pens :)
I used to love to go on first day of new class :P

Chalo bahut ho gaya going back to memory lane am coming out of it, in the present where am no more a kid, no more long summer holidays, :P

~Memories :)

Yeh kya kar deeya aapne. You took me down memory lane too. It seems we all middle-class kids used to go through same routine.

Our summer vacations meant that we would visit Dad wherever he was posted. So, it was great fun. I cannot forget my trips to Srinagar and Leh.

I hated holiday homework too and cursive writing was a pain in the hands.

I also remember collecting all the leaves and crap. Some students used too enjoy them. Geeks!!

Yea, visiting my nanajee/mamas was part of summers too. Ah!! Memories...

Great nostalgic post!!
