“Aisi ulji nazar unse hatt ti nahi,
Chehre ki rangat udne lagi hai,
Dil to bachcha hai ji,
Haan dil to baccha hai ji”
Very truly said by Gulzar – Dil To Bachcha Hai Ji, our heart is its own master, any time it began to get cherished full of joy, any time it goes tense, any time we start behaving like a old man,the other instant we start behaving like a kid of 4-5 years. This do happen to me also, infact it happened to me yesterday.
Actually I saw a small Diwali fair being organized at Rambag here in Allahabad, despite refusal by my friends ,I insisted to go there and succeeded in convincing them to go there on the condition that we wont go for rides there,but I was going there for rides only as lot of rides were there apart from looking for interesting faces also,I alongwith my senior decided to go for one big ride there that moves round n round,I don’t know the name but it was too tall !! wow ! what a experience it was ,bachpan yaad aa gaya !! That’s why I went there yesterday second time in this week and enjoyed 2 rides.
Actually similar kind of fair used to be held at my hometown Modinagar in Ghaziabad every year on Gandhi Jayanti and we 3 brothers used to desperately wait for this time every year !!
Whenever I remember those days I laugh a lot on ourselves that how mad we were,how rexaled we were that time and I do have 1 photo at my home of one of such day,In that photo ,i n my younger brother is sitting on chairs having two duplicate landlines phone`s receivers on our ears at one of photo studio in that fair in early nineties. Whenever we see that photo,I laugh a lot on how stupid we were that time but we used to enjoy a lot.
Yesterday also I relived the whole bachpan for few minutes.
One sad and true story is also linked with such fare which I was hesitating a bit to write here but ……. Actally One incident I remember related to that Gandhi jayanti fair,It was eary 90s I think,I remember once we 3 brothers went to see that fair and we got just Rs 15 from home.After reaching there ,Rs 5 we spent in eating something and then we asked our bro Robin to go for that similar ride.He asked both of us to go for that ride stating he is afraid of such ride,later on I came to know that It was just Rs.10 left with him n ticket was of Rs.5 each.
Whenever I remember that incident, I feel I was too selfish…..and yes this time also tears are coming out of my eyes….. You are too good BHAI ,I love you!!
Lets move on…..This one is for you abhishek, you also keep saying I don’t share my secrets.As I have moved back to my childhood,I m going to tell you about my First love for the first time ever to anybody .
It was class 5 and one very cute,very fair ,whitish girl with very beautiful smile was there in our class ,her name was Pooja Kaushik…….Ididn`t know what love is that time but what else we can call this…we used to sit together,In her hands one could easily trace the path of veins,such soft and cute she was !!
One beautiful incident I still remember, Once I bought a notebook ,on its coverpage ,hand in hand boy and girl picture was there,girl was woring a mini skirt…,when I show that notebook to her,she started laughing and keep on laughing for few minutes…..till date I don’t know why she laughed..
Anyway,next year in class 6,she changed the school and I don’t know where she gone,where she is today,nothing. What I know is her name only !! I searched her a lot on FB and Orkut but failed.
This was my Chotti si Love Story !! I hope to meet her once atleast in life.
Really aaj bhi DIL TO BACHCHA HAI JI !!
