My legacy

Now that my swimming classes were done with, I found myself free on Saturday after about 2 months. It was a lazy day and with nothing much to do, I went around digging my room to kill time; taking breaks in between my regular maniac routine of reading.

Snuggled in a corner of my wardrobe was this.

Its a churidar pyjama. Blue in color. By the way its MY pyjama; used to wear them when I was 2-3 years old. I vaguely remember the kurta. It had laced embroidery on it. Its in a bad condition a bit with stitches out and bruises; yet its magnificent.

I was awe struck seeing this garment. I cant even fit my hands into these leggings now. It was a nice feeling. Was I so tiny then? Did I really fit into this garment? Yeah I can recall I did. It was a bit loose then.

I have diligently preserved this piece of garment for 23 years now and would do for the rest of my life. I would want to show this cloth to kids around me when I am ripen old and tell them "I was a kid just like you honey bunches many many years ago"



  1. heyyy

  2. Hehehehe....Glad..Yeah how we fought for simple things. It was such a big thing then, now its funny

  3. Excellent. The churidar looks cute too.

    As Barbara Streisand sang: Misty water-colored memories of the way we were.

  4. Thanks Mano. "Misty water colored memories..." suits this situation fine as my churidhar was also blue.


I'd love to know what you thought :-) Please shoot!
