“Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies” a famous quote says. Childhood is the most wonderful time of anyone’s life. It was the time I didn’t know what a society was, what a life could be like, what a relationship could be like. I didn’t know many things about life which I know today. Only thing that I knew was to be happy. Involuntarily, I used to do things that made me happy. There was innocence towards grown ups. There was friendliness towards other kids. Only things that broke were my bones, never my heart, never!
My happiness was real; my laughter was hearty. There were no worries about my appearance; I never gave a damn about looks. I couldn’t discriminate myself with anyone around. In fact, I hardly remember how I looked that time. There were no intentions to appear good and impress anyone. There was no pretending to be someone else. That was the real me!
I used to play a thousand different games in one day, unlike now I play only one game at thousand different times. The cycling competitions with friends, silly fights, lame excuses of stomach ache to bunk off the school, fear of attending tuition, scary math teacher at school, sulking at my dad for not getting evening snacks, acting innocent in front of mom for winning the pocket money, furious fights with my brother and ending up with horrible scars and marks all over the face, pen-fights during the lunch hour at school, phony break ups with friends, triple ride on skinny bicycles, crazy gaming with WWF fancy cards and poke-mon, getting drenched in rain till the cold-fever attack and mom’s chiding after falling sick, stupid sobs for pointless issues, dad’s serious concern for my meaningless tears, unreasonable cursing at teachers for burdening home work…. All this added up to a wonderful time in my childhood. Recalling those sweet moments puts a smile on face for a life time!
Watching cartoon was great fun for me; some cartoon shows had become a part of my daily routine and I never used to miss them out. Shows like “POPEYE THE SAILOR MAN”, “SHAKTHIMAN” and “WWF CHAMPIONS” had greatly mesmerized on those days. I used to fancy myself like superheroes after watching every episode and there was real fun in doing so, pure sense of pleasure and joy! Never mind that innocence!
There were tantrums and sobs but never the sadness. There were fights and quarrels but never hurt. There were defeats, but never failures. There was humiliation, but never guilt. There was a tenacious memory but no remembrance of painful moments. There was no jealousy, discrimination, heart break or sad moments. There was only innocence that had kept me happy all that time. It was immaturity that made unaware of all earthly problems. It was the time I acted maturely unlike today with many immature thoughts that come along because of life style. I wish I could go back to that time and cherish those wonderful memories of childhood. I wish I had never grown up. I miss those all moments and that part of myself that existed.
Best things happen when we do the best things. Best love we get back when we love best. Best thoughts we get when we think best. But there is one best person we are gifted with though we’ve not done any best prayer. She is the miracle of miracles. “Mom” A wonderful word! Sound of that word itself makes us feel a cool and calm breeze of love and care. Where does anyone find ocean full of pure love? I would say it’s my mom, without a second thought. Our first struggle to learn to speak would be calling her mom. Our first close friend in this world would be mom. She is a friend, a trainer, a teacher, an adviser, a caretaker, a Well-wisher, what not she is? She is a magician who turns into our need. She sacrifices her own happiness for our betterment. She is a perfect angel who deserves true love and real care. But as we grow up, things will change in our way. Priorities get altered. Once in a while we will start ignoring people around us. Slowly priorities will alter more and more. Life becomes a mess with all sorts of evil thoughts. We learn to cheat, lie, break relationships, feel jealous of others, pride for achievements grows up, greed for money pitches high, love towards things grows more. We soon act like morons in our own world. People start hating us. World turns against us. But she still stands same, her love, her care for us remains same besides all our achievements and moronic changes. She has no change in time lapse. Her attitude towards us is irrelevant to time. She loves the same way she did ever since we came out onto this earth. No matter what we are today and what we are going to be tomorrow. Her love never fades down. A guaranteed love, for lifetime! How lucky to have her! She would be same as the one who played around with us, when we were cuddly babies. She would be same as one who worried about our health when we drenched in a rain play. She’ll be ever same. Ever and forever! Express our gratitude to her by loving her. But she is the one deserves it most. Mother, a true soul of love and care!
"Tring Tringgg!! AsAMass!" I opened my eyes reluctantly hoping no change. Since many days, life became incredibly tedious. Having done my chores everyday was no fun. I felt like a complete loser. Present was always dark. I fished around my bed side to reach my cell phone, which usually sleeps with me along. It is the one which wakes me up every day with alarm. But today was a holiday. There was no alarm setup last night, so it was a text message that put me awake! Shit! My head was still dizzy, eyes were still blurry, I found my cell phone and made few clicks. It was a message. It was not from nowhere but a friend and it says “Lets hang out!”. Awe! What a day to spend. The message carried a magic on its way. The feel of hangout filled a sudden joy. A mysterious sense of pleasure. Since it had been a long time I hung around. I was completely lost from myself. I forgot many of my things until I saw that message. I was deeply drowned in my dark life. There was no fun since many days. It had been so long since I laughed out aloud though my heart. Soon I was transforming into alien to my world. But nevertheless it is not possible. There come my saviors! Friends! Lucky to have them. They remind me what I’m, hold me still from losing away myself. They’ve always been fortunate to happen in my life. They brighten up my days after a great amount of tiredness, after a deadly battle of hard work, after some wild experience of shit, after screwing up a big time! After what not? Life’s traits!
The crap that I share with them is what makes me feel better. They sooth down my painful moments just by adding up their own big screwed times. Stupid jokes, hilarious ideas, funny teasing, uncountable hangovers, irresistible bunks, longing parties, inexplicable courage, unbelievable fun! All this wouldn’t be ever possible without having our friends around. But life is wild, it will soon behave unkindly by grabbing away all our happiness, love, joy and fun by splitting us apart one day. Life sucks someday or the other. It is life after all. However, they stick to us till the end, they remain same in memory, they stay in our instincts, their reflections remain fresh every day, every time. till the end, till the death, may be more even. After all they are no ones who live in our life; they are ones who make up our life! Don’t ever miss them! They are the real treasure. :)
