Pre-Elementary Childhood

Hmmmm! says the third grade music teacher giving her wide eyed raised eyebrow kathakali look at me. It was the recitation class and we chintus were trying our best to be heard. It was the competition of who sings the loudest for us but our teacher thought otherwise.

I used to be a very brawn and naughty kid @ school. Some of my accomplishments range from biting teachers, flinging rubber band bullets, giving meano looks and pulling hair at unsuspecting times. That was the 'Bring it on" kiddo me.

Ofcourse, I did grow out of it to turn out to be a responsible and dependable young man..ahem, but the childhood days still fill me with fleeting but fun memories. The only thing that concerns you is what you see at the moment. There is no reasoning or logic applied to your day to day activities.

There was this time when people use to give direcions to my apartment complex. Go straight and take a right turn. Its this four storey building where a kid cries really loud!!

Wow, didnt I make quite an impression?!
