Life In Chinmaya Vidyalaya – Part II – The great years …

October 22, 2006 at 3:10 am 6 comments

Hmm.. 4th and 5th grade went off pretty smoothly.. Not too much to remember.. atleast nothing that stands out particularly… except , perhaps for our late math teacher Mrs. Padma , who had promised to “squuuuuuuze you likee an oraaaaaange” ! Not to forget Lalitha Ma’am , a temporary science teacher we had , who used to give us tests left , right and centre !

6th grade was our official entry into ‘high school’ , which basically meant more homework , and , the worst part , school on saturdays ! on the upside , we were now sitting on the 3rd ( and highest ) floor of the school building , which meant large airy classrooms ! We had been shuffled when we came to the 6th , but Pritish n me were still in the same class !

7th grade , hmm , yeah , something ‘interesting’ happened then ! Me , candy ( aka Ashwin ) and LD were this ‘gang’.. Abhishek Singhal was a part of it too.. n there was this whole ‘gang war’ thing going on , between us and the rest of the class ! pretty interesting period.. but nothing more to say about it… OH ! I almost forgot ! The four of us had started a new company , named A.D.A.P.T ( Ashwin Daryanani Atul Propeller Technologies ).. “we adapt to your needs”.. that was our tagline , and we had invented this whole line up of gadgets , and priced them as well ( too bad no one bought them ! ) AND , the best part of 7th grade , bird-brain’s classes ! ( I’m sure you know who I’m talking about ! ). Man , me n LD had SO much fun ragging her ! Everyone was party to it though.. Remember the time when she walked out of class , sat in the corridor and ‘corrected’ our notebooks ??!?!? And ofcourse , April Fool’s Day , when LD fed her bubble gum spiced with chilli powder !! That was a winner of a year !
( ** we were into spying… more later** )

8th grade , probably the best year of my school life ( after 10th ofcourse !! )… we were in this secluded segment of the 3rd floor , with our own ‘private-balcony’ , so to speak… Since ‘propeller-man- Abhishek’ had left school , ADAPT folded up , but we came back , with SpyKidz ( well , we were learning HTML , so we thought we could make this website about spying , with tests , n all that ! )… We used to spend ALL our time together , ‘designing’ this website in one of LD’s notebooks , it was SO much fun !! Me n candy had also come up with this line , which we used to say to LD , whenever he showed off too much. It was from one of the English poems… “All you gaudy moths and millers are only dressed up caterpillars”…

9th grade… perahaps , one of the MOST un-eventful years of school… Except that Vidi Ma’am was our class teacher.. ( more on this later ) I remember ABSOLUTELY nothing from this year… so , over and out !

*coming up … grade 10 !*
