When I read Visha‘s post on Scrapbooks, I got so tempted that I decided to write about it. I have had scrapbooks during my school, junior college and my engineering college..15 years down the line scrapbooks are such joy to read..Even now I love reading those old entries from my friends at various stages of life, promising to be with me in my highs and lows..Read about those pacts that we made which were meant to last till the ants wore pants 😛
The first ever scrapbook that I had was a small one with some pink flowers and ribbons on its cover. By the end of my 10th std the whole book was filled..The book reminds me of so many funny moments that I had during my school days..Like-
- How I got it filled from my English mam..She was my favorite. When she wrote her favorite actress was Sandra Bullock I immediately asked my older cousins to show me who she was! This mam, I thought was very cool and knowing her favorites meant knowing about cool things in life..I was so naive!
- How I got it filled from A, who had a huge crush on me..I remember my friends had challenged me to get the book filled by him and I, being a jhaansi ki raani marched towards his class. When I handed him the book there were huge OOOhhhs and Aaaahhhs from his classroom..His friends blew the whole issue out of proportion.. Again, how childish!!
- My scrapbook got filled in no time and I asked Amma to buy a new one for me.. She always found it a waste of money..Ofcourse she never said no to it!! I remember my sister had a much better scrapbook. Hers was big and it was hard bound purple colour book..There were a lot of nice and funny things in her book and I was the first one to fill hers :)..
My junior college scrapbook had very few entries..Somehow I could never make as many friends in my junior college..I was very close to this one girl Sne who eventually drifted apart..I tried resurrecting our relation a few months back but I realized we are poles apart in our thoughts, habits and everything…We could not connect the way we did back in our college days.. But even now reading her entry in my book gives a very warm feeling..Sigh, I can’t bring her back to my life!!
Well, my engineering college scrapbook is the most interesting one.. Unlike my childhood scrapbooks, I bought a handmade paper book which had flower petals and leaves ingrained in it.. It was the best ever. And when the pages got over in that book I bought one more, a simple diary with a neat button which made it look like a bag..Very recently I was reading my engineering scrapbook and had a hearty laugh over what people had written about me..
Now that I have told you all my scrapbook kissas, let’s get back to the business. As I told you, Visha who came out with this post has given a tag..So here I go :-
