The Cellular Album

Watercolor memories of a school uniform, a heavy bag and tennis-shoes...reminiscences of bus rides full of chatter and giggles...fading aroma of home-made lemon-cake and strawberry ice cream...distant sounds of splashes in the pool and screams of jolly times...fond recollections of daddy coming home with Christmas presents...a black and white slide-show of dancing stupid to Locomotion...heart-warming memoirs of cousins coming over for holidays...far-away blazes of collecting sea shells in the beach...graying flashes of taking puppy Ginger to the vet...blurred snapshots of 12hr train rides to Granma's place...flickering flashbacks of running around her backyard and throwing stones at juicy mangoes...a soothing re-capture of bathing from a natural well, full of pure and cool water...vague sparks of walking down to the little stream to watch the fishes...evoked instances of catching little red birds and chasing after yellow butterflies...a fading picture of drinking Granma's medicine and fainting creating panic...unclear visions of playing crazy in the paddy fields so green...far-away memories of Granma's smiles that filled my senses...slowly dissolving flashes of playing hopscotch and getting angry with friends...funny memoirs of getting together the next day and climbing trees...happy recollections of buying new books and shoes for a new term of school, feeling so excited...a dimming flicker of losing a tooth and throwing it to the fairy...an old photo beaming toothless in a heavily-frilled dress...a distant flicker of a bunny-shaped birthday cake with pink wiggly candles...faded and stained photographs of people that used to be...of smiles worth more than the world...of pets that filled my lonely days...of moments that will never be again...of emotions that can never be replaced...of places I long to go back to but most likely wont...of times that I can recall but will never be able to live back in..of those precious flashes from the past so dear to my heart...now they remain in the priceless album called my Memory...so do you remember?

sittingnut said...

beautiful post.

memories are what make us, us.
i always thought that one of the horrible things about death is that memories of people will be lost forever when they die.
as 'batty' in film 'blade runner' says when one dies,
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

as long as one's memory (not to be confused with others' memory about oneself) lasts, one lives.

Memory has a beautiful way of painting our past in the most beautiful colors. But even those memories that are not so pretty make us who we are and should be cherished.

Memories are i guess one of the very few things in life wch remain wth us forever...n as long as they r wth us we can never feel alone...yeah! they do leave us misty eyed but thn those "nostalgic moments" always manage to get tht smile on our face *ahem!..im not gloatin bout my blog here..heehee (wch isalso by the way called --nostalgic moments , if u remember..heehee*
butjokes apart, our memories hav always been our prized possesion ..no wonder we cling on to thm never wanna let go...:)
cheers to all the great times of the past hope we hav many such great memories ahead :)

Het Waghela said...

During my early school days when i was kid, i wanted to feel like a grown up and didn't liked any one coming to pick-me up from the bus stop till home. So I used to get angry on anyone coming to pick me up saying that I am big now and I can reach home alone on my own. Its funny to remember my such behaviour :).

kkalpz said...

Lovelyyyyyy post kesh!!!!!

You had me all misty-eyed there.I believe we had a somewhat similiar childhood.

Blurry images of walkin down to school (my biggest regret was that my school was close by to my home n i never got to ride the school bus n missed out on all the fun)with a heavy bag.
Splendid memories of cousins coming over for winter holidays...watching movies in the noons...playing in the evenings n stayin up late at nights playing cards...many a times dad used to join in too...:)
Train rides to grandma's place for summer vacations(make that 17hr train rides in my case..lol)...running ard in paddy fields,climbing mango trees..hehehe..bruisin my knees...hopscotch...wading ard in fresh water ponds...catching tiny lil fishes n putting them in water filled glass jars n thn watchin thm swim ard in tht jar....leaving granma's house with a heavy heart n heavier bags filled with goodies which she used to pack for us...lol....VOWWWWWWW.
I love u for takin me on a trip down this memory lane.
Very true!!!Flashes from the past are indeed very precious.
Yesterday is but todays memory and tomorrow is nothing but todays dreams.
HAPPY HOLI swthrt.....hugzzzzzzzzzz

Contented said...

**you came to my site and wrote i am asex addict-not true-i hardly have any sex so ther eyou go-

**i am married to a woman like you who is not to keen on sex

how d u even suggest ur wife is a woman like me? U dun even know me! I could be better or even worse :) The fact that I pointed out u may have an addiction problem doesnt suggest what sort of woman I am. However ur constant cribbing abt s#x suggest what sort of person u r - u seriously need help. That's all I was trying to say. Besides, dun give so much imp to s#x, s#x n s#x...it's not THE be-all-and-end-all of life - seriously u got to be smart to realise this!

saby said...

my best memory of childhood is when it was over

and i started earning my own money
and when we sold our house in juhu

and i gott 10,000/- earnest money in cash

i blew it all up in 7 days flat
10,000/- was beeg money those days

it went into Wine, Woomen and Wong
i wanted a taste of how the rich lived

now i dont care too much for money

lol ok...well I was very small then...where we lived back then, there was a huge backyard full of Pera trees...I used to roam ard there eating Pera...lol...then one day I heard Amma calling me...I was angry cos I wanted to stay in there...among the trees...so I tried to hide behind a tree...too bad I was too big for that skinny tree to hide me, Amma saw me...then I was walking towards her in frustration with a Pera fruit in my hands...she told me to come in straight away...I was so stubborn I threw the fruit on her face...I still rem that and I must have been abt 3-4yrs...my mum's lip got hurt...I rem that too...I was so sad after that I cried for hours for hurting her...I dun think I ever did anything like that again!

Memories are the most beautiful thing a human soul can create.Especially when it is through the eyes of a young girl looking back, and reflecting all that is wonderlous and care free..a time of innocence and splendor running free in one's mind is the gift of;things long past that are embedded from the mirror of heaven to your hearts.Simply beautiful.

** So true! Kids these days r basically indoors playing PS2 or computer games...so lonely they have become...hardly they experience nature and natural ways to enjoy childhood...sad indeed!

Sadly, I know children that hardly realize what a hen is. Those who don't live in the country side think that the steak they find in the supermarket was borne like that...
Thanx for your comment in my blog, I'll try to convince myself of your words! ^-^

Queen Bee said...

I wonder if age affects the way we look back at all the memories. Would they still be beautiful and bring sweetness to our hearts, or will we be sad and can't bear to part with any of them?

Princess said...

Hello Keshi,

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a valuable comment.

You have preserved your memories so well and you put them in beautiful versus.
Your post has kindled my childhood memories that are so near to my heart.

I cherished my memories once again.

Nostalgic feelings!! Very much the same in my case.. as for the school bus rides, the chatter in the bus, we even had our bus driver race other buses, somehow used to love the early morning ride to school.. fresh breeze blowing across face.. at 730am.. hm.. and even in college, we had buses and tht was at 7 am!! still.. early morninmg silence as the bus zooms past.. hmm

The Phoenix said...

Makes me long for a time when life was so much simpler...when I could just be a child. No concept of time, and all the days ran into each other.

desperado said...

memories....sure i have truck loads of dem :)

though im not too old ...just 21 ;)...but still tht childhood, tht care free attitude seems so distant....

when i was a child, i wanted to grow up

Goshh thats really sad! When I was little I used to run ard with hens n lil yellow chicks in my Granma's backyard. Also my dad used to be an avid animal-lover...so we had a farm of various pets..lol! U name it, we had it...even goats n a lil pig :):)


**Those who don't live in the country side think that the steak they find in the supermarket was borne like that...

thats doing injustice to childhood! Well I guess u n I r lucky that we had some country exp when we were kids...amazing how some kids these days dun even know what a real pig looks like except for the ham on their bread!


**Thanx for your comment in my blog, I'll try to convince myself of your words! ^-^

they were not just words..I meant it :) U looked goreous sweety...u really did!





~~Queen_Bee

**I wonder if age affects the way we look back at all the memories.

Im not an oldie yet lol but I still cherish my chidlhood so much...teh memories etc and it only seems to grow each year...


**Would they still be beautiful and bring sweetness to our hearts, or will we be sad and can't bear to part with any of them?

well we really cant dwell on em as they r the past events, but we must always rem em and cherish em forever...cos it's those events that has made us who we r today...
