Those Days…

“Hey! Look here, The Super Mario game is on Android”, VK exclaimed. KC with his usual hyper excited voice shouted, “Oh super Mario, I loved it man. It was my favourite game, I had completed all the levels in that”. “Even me”, VK and AA chorused. “Even Contra was good, it was thrilling. The way he used to swim in water and shoot was amazing”, AA said. “Oh ya ya it was awesome”, KC agreed. Soon the extinct video games became the epicentre of the discussion. Some of the classics like Duck Hunt, Tanker, Pacman had also arrived in the room. The arrival of computers on everyone’s table has murdered television video games. The fun playing those video games with the joystick in our hand can never be matched. We literally used to move along with the joystick to the left just to make the car on the screen move to left. Everyone in the room were in their own world. They broke open the windows of the present and had gone back in time to a place where they were seeing themselves trying to insert the game cassette into the slot, holding the joystick, playing on the dirt road. I was also in the same room but only physically. My mind was elsewhere thinking to itself,

 

I wish I could rewind  time..

To those days when we used to play in sand and dirt…

To those days when we used to fight for pencils and crayons…

To those days when gaming meant Cricket and Kho-Kho…

To those days when doing school homework was a herculean task…

 

I wish I could rewind time…

To those days when dirty was mud…

To those days when hot drinks were tea and coffee…

To those days when playing cards was playing UNO..

To those days when betting was all for innocent purposes…

 

I wish I could rewind  time… 

To the days when racing was all about cycling…

To the days when chatting was face to face talk…

To the days when the toughest job on earth was to memorise multiplication tables…

To the days when we used to wait till Sunday to watch Shaktimaan..

 

I wish I could rewind  time…

 To those days when going to school in an auto was more than a picnic…

To those days when class teachers were our second parents…

To those days when we never missed school on PE weekdays…

To those days when singing in school choir made us singers…

 

I wish I could rewind  time…

 Those days every day, every minute, every second I wished to grow up quickly…

Now certainly time has changed..

Every day, every minute, every second I wish I could rewind  time…
