Ding! Dong! Ding!

The school bell would ring.
 We would gather for prayer assembly. 
We would miss the comfort of our home terribly. 
We would rush towards our respective classrooms. 
When the teachers asked us any question, we would pretend to go to the bathroom.

A surprise class test would give us a heart attack. 
Any wrong answer on our part would earn the teacher's smack. 
Detentions and impositions would upset our mood. 
Such was our fragile nature in our childhood. Calling our teachers by their nicknames was fun. 
Sometimes we would play in the blazing sun.

We would share our lunches with our friends. We would fight with each other and then make amends. 
Examinations and results meant dealing with our parents' ire. 
They expected us to fulfill their desire. 
They wanted us to score full marks and become doctors and engineers. Nevertheless, we were obstinate enough to choose our own careers.

The wooden desks would reveal our carved names. 
I remember playing fun games. 
We would scribble on the last page of our notebooks.
We would whisper among ourselves in spite of our teacher's stern looks. 
Those were the golden school days. 
Their memories are etched in my heart always.
