Memories of a Classroom – difficult child ….

Though I look not one of u
Nor share stage with any of you
Doesn’t mean I don’t be with you.
I see u all closely as u pass around the door
I see how u gather  with others of Ur feather.
So what if I didn’t match with
Doesn’t mean I don’t be with you.
I never felt left alone
Saw u all play and invent sitting there alone.
I enjoyed every moment watching all your stints.
Have seen all your talents brim when bell rings.
Have been with u all when u talked among others trying to listen from a distance so I would not bother.
Have imagined me being one among u wen see u enjoying those paper planes that flew.
So what if I wasn’t like others with u
I still been and lived every moment in the classroom and out of it with u.
Just that it was a theatre and u all the  artists
Me the spectator living it through the parts showing.
I too have memories different than others .
So what It looked like I wasnt there among u.
Keep me in memories too  cos I was the other who made everyone better everytime a choice appear  ……

3. The Mourning Phase

There came the news and his grandma had passed away. People from all places pour into finish the last rites. Suddenly the house has seemed to shrunk with no place even to think. The child knows it will be over soon and people will get going.

But then to his surprise three months passed but the sorrow didn’t .The same discussions over and over again how could it happen , hope something more could have been done. The childs life has halted for a while now , nobody seems to bother to know what going on his life. Or maybe its not that important till he is fed 3 times a day. With so many around still the child is lost in his world.

That doesnt effect the child he seems undisturbed and has found his time spent fruitfully in play and tv. Now its already exam time , with nothing done , nobody to guide , the child decides to sail on his own. Even if he drowns the fault will be his own…
