Well back in 6th class, for my Fancy Dress competition:p , I wanted to dress up as a rooster. That was because of the reason..... The girl I liked was dressing up as a hen ( She had a speech planned up about the advantages off eating eggs and all...... :shocked::shocked:).

Well, my mom didn't exactly support me ( of course, I didn't tell her the reason). I thus, had to settle for SYMBOL OF UNITY. I had to first act as a Hindu, then a Muslim, a sardar and eventually as a Christian. Needless to say, I won the first prize. :angel::angel:.
Well, after that I never tried any of my stupid ideas to patao a girl. Damn, if my parents would've supported me at that time, I would've had a hen.......... err.... I mean a girlfrnd at school.:sleepy::sleepy::sleepy::sleepy:

oh yeah remembered from mr. chop suey's post - i have had a lot of fond memories as i participated through a lot of dramas and theater and assemblies.

particularly fond was the time I played ravan in ramayan. i guess i was a good actor and was carrying a lot of girth. also, since it was a hindi play, i gave it a particular tamilian accent to my dialogs. my defense - ravan was a tamilian.

since, we had a tailor to stitch costumes. the dress rehearsal was particularly embarrassing. i had to take a fall and ripped my dhoti

luckily for me i had worn boxers under my dhoti. and to make matters worse there were lots of girls and teachers around. at any rate i had a jumbo sized dhoti stitched....


p.s: have a whole list of such embarrassing incidents, can keep the thread going for a long long time...

@pallavi egonomist...thanks 4 reviving the thread guys :thumbsup:

was in the Sr. KG i guess when my mom n my aunt decided that i should take part in the school fancy dress competition (mind u i was not even consulted before the decision was taken :huh:) they decided that i should be playing hanuman (poor me 😃 n they got the costumes ready with the dhoti, gadha, the mask n ofcourse the tail (now how could u miss on that :p)...i still remember i was to say the following lines "Jai shri ram...mai ram bhagat hunuman aap sabko pranam karta hu...jai shri ram"...was supposed to jump in with the "jai shri ram" line...similarly jump out with the same line...infact my mom n my aunt had written a nice big paragraph 4 me...but thanks to my great memory 😛 they had to cut it down to only 3 line the day beaconed n every1 from my class n kids from other std were there...almost all the girls were dressed up in a sari n were playing a teacher ...yaar y r gals so short of ideas i dont know :p...I remember a guy was playing the character of n adhivasi...n we frds plucked out half the leaves from his costume before he could go on stage ..neways even i got my fair share of harassment frds couldn' tried to convince me that no such thing would happen as we sat in the audience to watch the proceedings...i was dying to c my other frds goof up as well n i wasnt to be disappointed phir on my way home i got to have n ice cream 4 my splendid performance that day :p

PS : my mom gave up on me after my third failed attempt in a fancy dress competition this competition i guess a gal playing the role of a teacher won :huh: muzay kuch different attempt karney ke liya kuch to diya hota 😛

Had a lot of fond memories in school. Thought I would share some not so fond memories:

2.Food stains
4.Fights....followed by more crying
5.Punishments (due to dry skin used to put vaseline and when made to kneel, I used to slip all over the place)
6.Teachers meeting parents
7.Detention meant running laps around the track
9.Studies :tellme:
10.Board Exams
11.Mismatched socks during sports

And my favorite ripped pants.:biggrin: Had a lot of them and they were embarrassing. They be as ripped as the smiley face :biggrin:

Lets just say that I became quite good at stitching and sewing by the end of my school.

Nice thread Chop ..
Tried hard to recollect those fond memories:grin:

As said by many the best period of our lives. And what makes it the best is as a child we never had tensions and LIFE was not as complex as it is now. No tensions to find job, no struggle to to fight competition, sadly sooner or later this period comes to and END:(

was absolute freak then, crazy about the legendary WWF used to collect WWF cards, had great collection of it, probably best in school or may be in top 5

Those were the days when different things made our biggest craze(now absurd).

First Fight(gang war): Me and friend(gopal) catching(me hands and gopal legs) hold of guy called LUCKY and taking him to the corridor and dropping him from 1.5 feet above ground leveldirectly on concrete .... Truly PaGaL since 1987

It was 2nd class when I learned cycling:biggrin::biggrin: used to rent it from neighborhoods cycle store @ Rs2/- hour :biggrin::biggrin:

Was a terrible student(at least for teachers)... never ever did my home-work so was the situation of Class-work. As I grew(mentally and Physically) learned to give different excuses, especially to social teacher.

Got a cycle in 4th class and it was sort of passion to cycle everyday for an hour or so.

Favorite Program: Alif Laila (great Ramanand Sagar) ... every sunday used to flock in neighbors home to watch Zee Horror Show (bachpaan se hi insane)

Used to make different Gadgets with paper (whatever was in trend) cameras.. ships.. airplanes(MIG's)...

Life was Bindass then...

Jagjit Singh's gazal ...

Ye daulat bhi le lo
Ye shaurat bhi le lo
Bhale cheen lo tum ye meri jawanni
Magr mujh ko Lautaa do Bachpaan ka saaya..
.(forgot aage ka..:neutral:)
