An evening in East York Collegiate ;)

My day was soooo busy...I was using my time management skills ;) to manage my timeline with the two projects....& finally I decided to leave some work for tomorrow always comes;) "aaj to gaya ..lekin kal hey na;)"
But I never thought my evening would end up so amazing!!! awesome!!! fantuabulous!!! wonderful!!! I can just keep on adding adjectives ....:D
Guess what..? I got a chance to attend a concert ;) and it was not of Bryan Adams or Britney or so...these were students from Kindergarden till grade 5 :) !!! WOW!!! what a wonderful just took me back to my kindergarden days...when I used to perform and my dad used to click pictures..aah!!! "koi lauta de mere beete huye din" was a wonderful evening that I had...its a neighbourhood school where all these kids were celebrating spring 2005. It started with O'Canada ...the national anthem and then one by one kids were rocking....I was so surprised there wasn't a moment when audience was waiting for any was just one by one..& some kids were the program fillers...when the stage is getting set for another show these 4th grade kids came and were dancing on some pretty cool Makarena...& some rap ones.. I could see the same characters what I used to have when I was in KG....remember how some kids used to be in the group because they are told to...and some over acting...some super acting..and some so dull ...I could see all those characters even today on the stage...where someone misses those steps and tries to copy the partner...:) and then someone's costume falling down...ohh I didn't realize how I got lost in that celebration ...that I was on top of my voice cheering those kids...all I could say in my mind is "Dad...I wish I had a pause button that time"...........ohhh I miss those days..:( ...I got emotional but ..I was in full swing..ohh I think some kids were still behaving..hahaha not me;)
It ended with a full of life song..Its Celebration time c'mon!!!! am still on the 8th 19th.. no yaar what so ever that hyper ;)
I really had such a wonderful time today ..felt like to yell loud and tell the world....

Yeh Daulat bhi lelo yeh shohrat bhi lelo
Bhale chheenlo mujhse meri jawaani
Magar mujhko lautado bachpan ka saawan
Woh kaagaz ki kashti woh baarish ka paani

So true, everytime I go to some of these concerts it always take me back to my childhood and make me think of this Geet sung by none other than Jaggu Dada (Jagjit Singh)
Very nice sharing Dawn

In that picture, which one of them is you ;);)??

Did you remember (in case you had those feelings) how you wanted to grow up when you were young? Now that you are grown up, you want to go back to that age. Similar things will perhaps happen as we grow old - when we will be 40, we want to be 30 and when 50, we want to be 40 and so on....thus don't lament, but live the day....

Oops! what a lecture! :):)

U r so true kl...but I realized this when it ws my 16th...I was so sad ..upon asking I said I can't go back to 10..:( my dad just smiled and brushed his hand over my head...! no am pretty sure no matter what I want to be that 5 yr old baahh!!! :(

From that one frankly I was like the one sitting next to juice drinker guy on left;)..I hv still teachers who r my fan ;) .that doesnt mean I was a book word no way...:).....n am pretty sure that juice drinking guy is my seat partner whos name is Harpal Singh and I hope he doesn't love to draw train :0...
I live like am 5 still ;) thats why keep getting lectures from my mom too :D

btw...which one is u???

KL said...

I am the one sitting on the left-side of juice-drinking - chubby, looking-dumb one :):):)....

Don't worry about behaving 5 :):) - mui does the same thing :):).....not intentionally, but i think my brain is stuck around that time, didn't mature.
