Tag 10 things I miss the most

Was tagged my Kunsjoi

1. Neighbour friends

After come from schools, I change my dress and went to Next Street to play with my friends; my best friend name is Vela. We used to round the area every day. His brother karthik is my brother friend. They two were a set and we were a set, wherever we go they follow us. Every Saturday we go to the nearest playground to play cricket, Vela’s school friend also join with us. Many times I put fight with him, but we will forget the fight next day. Vela's father takes us to beach in his cycle. Those days, my only aim is to play them him, we play tops, koli, and hide & seek. There is also a Ganesh temple near his house, every evening we hear the temple bell, and we go and get vebuthi and prasatham. Everyday we will sit in front of his house and chat for long times.

2. Weekends in grandpa’s house

Some years, every week we go to our grandpa house. My grandpa has many cows and buffalos and also has a teashop. We watch our grandpa when he gives foods for the bulls and milking. My aunty takes me to his friend’s house and shopping, and wherever she goes. Taking bath in the water tank where they keep water for bulls is very enjoyable. In Sundays my uncle go to play cricket in a marriage hall ground, me and my bro also follow them, there will be a big wall, we can reach the ground if we jump that wall. My uncle left me to jump the wall. I play board games with my sister and cousins in the terrace of my grandpa’s house. Last time I went to my grandpa house in 2002 summer vocation.

3. My School’s and friends.


I studied up to 5th standard in Barath Higher Secondary School in Adyar (CBCS). After 5th I changed my school because of heavy subject and class are in 2 & 3rd floor. I got some friends in Barath school, I have remembers some of them, Prabu Raj, Prabakar & Shanu. Shanu studies with me from LKG, in 1st STD she gone to another section, after that I met her in my 5th STD. In 5th I got a chance to have a seat on her table, sometimes we have group studies mostly to put math’s sum. After I change the school I have talk to her, but watch from my balcony when she cross my house. Now I also cant see her, because we shifter our house, she look very beautiful. When I was studying 6th in Saraswath Venkatram School in thiruvanmiyur, I feel very happy because I got good principle, teachers and friends here, all of them have a good care on me, I cant forget my best friend Udaiyan, after I leave the school also I have touch with him, but for last 4 years I dint meet him, and Kavitha is another good friend, we all call her kavi, a beautiful homely girl, she was a supporter for me in school. I am missing loveably friends.

4. Villages and my holidays

6 years back my summer holidays will be going to relatives house mostly its all villages. Going to fields, taking bath in the canals and pump sets every day, drinking lots of tender water, eating Palmyrah Kernal, sitting on the pial (thinnai). After eating the palmyrah kernal, my unce do a vehicle in that and we push it where ever we go. My favorite place is my cousin uncle’s house in Chengalpattu (a town near chennai), when I go there my uncle and round all places in his cycle and playing with my aunty (just a year elder than me). We have a relative in Thiruvadanthai (a small village near chennai on the East Cost Road), there is a lake behind there house, me and my bro go to that lake with my cousin and catch fish and bath on the lake. Really worry by missing the enjoy.

5. My Uncle

My uncle Shyam is a Hero for me. He is a very talented mechanic, I dint see a hard worker like him, without any help, he starts a Maruti workshop and stand on his leg and wonder us. He has a big care on me, what ever I ask he will buy; we are living a happy life because of him. It was a time when I cant imagine a life without uncle, but his sudden death shocked me and I feel like my world was dark, I wonder how I miss my love Uncle.

6. Old home is gold

Lived for 20 years, saw my happy and sad days there. Standing on the balcony and watch the road and see different people. Going to my Uncles (dad’s brother) house playing with cousins, working in the mechanical shop (my uncle shyam’s work shop is in front of my house), with the worker Anna’s (brother), chatting with them removing the wheels put fingers on the Greece box and taking it and fill in the barring. The nattar kadai, tea kadai bajji, the preparation for Aautha (arm) Pooja function in mechanical shed will be very nice, I used to spent the full night in my uncle mechanical shed, by helping to tie design papers and painting for tools. Watching the lorry releasing water for the people, the petrol smell form workshop, evening cool wind in the balcony, taking some thing with cousin bro, bursting crackers from balcony and throwing it down, sliding on the steps hand bare, missing totally.

Will Continue....

...i'm sorry to hear about what happened to your uncle( i went to the link).
..yeah,sometimes we are so busy in life that we dont care anything about our health ,and its not good.
..but maybe it's God's will naa, and we can't do about it...we must accept the lost...and think that he's happy there now with the Lord!

...do take care of yourself yaar.

your friend,
