What is the first thing of your existence that you remember??? Has this question occurred to you? I have no qualms in boasting the philosophical breakthrough myself but I know there are many cynics in the world.
It was one of those dreaded 'free' weekends when I was made to remember a few incidents of my distant and muddled past. I recalled going to my first school and being excited about it. I can’t help but marvel at the excitement pas raison. I was hardly a soul with 'senses'. Guess that does explain the excitement.
I remember to have participated in a race in my school which my mum now claims never happened. Was I schizophrenic?
I remember Ma leaving me in a photo shop after having a photo done with me. It sounds dramatic, but Ma was in the next shop buying grocery then.
In my next school, the only day I recall is a day when I went to school with no books and just a pencil box because someone told me there was an exam on that day. It would have been my first exam. However, it was not to be. I also remember falling on the school ground while playing … I guess…"running running". I remember Dad picking me once and taking me to didi's dance classes to pick her up.
Probably that was the first time I understood the word 'dance'. Probably it was didi’s last attempt to dance.
I remember we had two cars and I remember going somewhere in one car and the other car following us. I thought my Dad was one of those men who come in the News and talk about stuff beyond comprehension. When I found out he was not, I was relieved.
Later Ma told me that half the things I tell her which I ‘still’ remember could not have occurred. Dad retired during my birth year and gave up the office car.
May be picchhla janam……..
