Here I am.. This is me.........

What would be a more appropriate way to inaugurate my first steps into the blog world than spill out a little - yeah just a little about who I am..blah blah...
I set foot or should I say made a rampage into this world about 25 years back..Its been a fun journey - normal in some peopl'e point of view and "fun" in some others.. from my own..... it was a perfect mixed bag parts of which I would wanna relive even to this day.

My life at Sishya.......
Studied at Sishya - a "homey" school bang next to where I stay.. for about 12years and then went on to do my 11th and 12th in Vidya Mandir Adyar.
Sishya days was when I knew how 6:30 AM looked like..actually. school used to begin by 8:00 everyday and I used to get up by 6:30 and get ready.. A completely organised and diligent freak ( If I can say so myself) .. everything HAD to be in order for me to go to school.. My family has probably seen my house turn into "Panic Room" if things ever went hay wire.
A straight "a" student from the beginning, I really enjoyed studying ( no no dont opine yet....Thankfully I dint turn out to be a nerd:D nor look like one)...used to have these ultra close competitions with this friend of mine on "who is going to beat whom".And so 12 years life at Sishya was pretty much full of books, friends, sports, parties etc...

Life at my Alma Mater - Vidya Mandir Adyar..
Home away from home could be another phrase to describe this place where I spent just two years of my school life but it felt like a life time. Even to this day, if given a choice, would love to relive every second right from the first day I joined VMA in the 11th std.
The best compliment that I probably got from my friends there were... when they said they were quite shocked that I dint turn out to be the the typical "sishya product"... I can literally hear a few "agree" nods eh guys? This probably would hint how close to "down to earth" I am, how I literally squirm amidst those super high fliers who dont have a clue what the hell they are upto and confuse the hell out of you as well...
A different me evolved in VMA - outspoken, bubly, giggly, extrovert, willing to take part in a extra curriculars...
Now I am like.."er...extra whatttttttt??" Today looking back and connecting the dots back to school, I had a great school life...best that I could have ever asked for...

Sitting amongst a star lit night
Sweet whispers carried on the breeze
Take me back to School Days
Crazy, boring, fun, mess,
No rush, no hurries
No cares, no worries

Sweet dreams don’t let the bed bugs bite
Last words before the lights went out

Treasured memories held so dear
those were Simple days and ways..

/Yuva

btw: nice to find you here...;)
keep on keeping on..

Whats wrong with being a sishya product ? I think people from sishya are super cool...my cousin went to school there for a long long time. I like the blog and keep writing.
