Life in a Golden Cage

There was a strange uniformity in everything; the energy drained faces, the dresses, the rooms, routines, the walls, caretakers; well, that’s about literally every boarding school.

Though we had a well defined time table for our life there – reminding constantly about it by the ear splitting sound of that bell – I liked to mark that boring routine with the position of sun in the sky.

Evenings, when the sun reaches the horizon, I used to sit on the grass and be myself; and imagine that the sun is looking back one last time before leaving for the day, just to give me that warm smile.

~Well, I’ve been through that boarding life, I know it only so well! πŸ™‚

      Of course I learned a lot and I really don’t regret going there. I got better schooling, friends for life, and a lot of life lessons. And to make it clear, my parents din send me there. I went on my own, and to get permission from them I had to strike a lot. πŸ™‚

    Even the routines make up for memories later. And then, few you laugh at, few you still think how you ever made through it πŸ˜€ Best wishes.

      Yeah!! Sometimes life goes upside down and you feel like you won’t ever be back to normal again, and then with time, you move on and laugh at the thought of those old days!
