Past, Present, or Future – which phase do you live your life in and why?
First of all, thank you Vanessa for giving me this prompt !!! Because of you now I know myself much better. It helped me in evolving new myself.
Past : My past is the most wonderful thing that has happened to me, like a roller-coaster ride…..with many ups and downs but yet the most precious time which even today when thought about, brings a smile on my face…..how stupid we were!!! But I suppose that stupidity was the essence of my childhood.
Here I would like to share one incident. I and my younger brother had an afternoon school whereas, my elder brother used to go in the morning….we used to be jealous of him, that he used to get more time to play than us.
One day, we both decided to bunk the school. I was in third standard and he in fourth standard. We went to school as usual and acted like Amitabh Bachchan and Vidya Balan…..so natural ….that teacher decided to send us home as we were having severe stomach ache. This continued for almost 3 days but on 3rd day our bus driver felt suspicious so he decided not to take us back home. And, I tell you, our school was 10kms far away from our house.
Now, we were out of school, bus driver didn’t take us, with no money in the pocket….what would we have done!! And, the fun begins here!!
We started walking and after half an hour’s continuous walk my brother asked what if we take our lunchbox as our parents will doubt us!! What a detective thought!! How foolish that we didn’t knew that even if we walk whole day we would not reach home by 6 in the evening and then what? (makes me smile how smart we were).
So we sat on a bench outside temple to have our tiffin!! Weren’t we smart enough!! But then, my uncle who used to come to the bank near to that temple, he had come for some work. And, guess what, firstly he thought some kids have bunked their school and wasting their time here.
The more we came to close to each other, more shocked were we!! He took us home and then you can understand what would have happened with us. Till today I haven’t forgotten the smacking we have got ….but still I will not call it abuse in foreign terms.
This is just one incident and my past is full of such precious moments….and when you have such a wonderful past, won’t you love to stay in it forever and ever??
And now my answer to this prompt is:
Yes, I live in the present taking along the positivity and freshness of my past to give my future (my kids) the most wonderful future, like the past I had – A CHILDHOOD loaded with fun, enjoyment, foolishness, innocence and TRUE HAPPINESS!!!!!!
And, what about you, where do you LIVE??
