"The Lost World :-) "

Binding the books with brand new brown sheets was an important task.

All emotions were crystal clear as we never wore a mask.

It was fun to preserve the peacock feather in note books.

It was a eureka moment when we scored marks for all our flukes!

We never got tired counting the stars and we always wished when we saw a shooting star.

Those were the days when we thought world is full of love and no war.

Those were the days when we believed the power of joy over worries.

Today those bygone days are just treasured memories!
