COLORS!!!

an style="font-weight:bold;">

After the initial euphoria of gettin into holidays... I find myself treading on similar lines 2 what sm1 predicted 1 year ago.....i can very well say that after the 1st 2 vacations u'll start missing college sooner than you expect 2 do now"....I remember seeing many expressions of disbelief then.... i myself ws a part of dat bunch...........5 days at home and i'm done...a lack of things 2 do coupled with some savage weather has ensured that i do not venture out of home....reminds me of
an incident arnd 2 weeks ago...
that day being no different,i was biding my time by watching some basketball vDEOS....the NBA finals b/w the LAKERS nd the CELTICS...........................................

engrossed in the match,i failed 2 notice my 10 year old lil sis who had snuggled up beside me in bed,her object of interest being my laptop and not the game....
one kobe bryant dunk and she suddenly started chirping with glee"yellow house won!!...yellow house won!!"..........

Irritated,I gave her a shouting..:~

On the verge of crying,she hugged her teddy and walked out of the room cursing me"no wonder green house never wins...its because u behave dis way 2 me".........

"Hold on!..whats she saying??"the innocence of what she had spoken struck me....
a 10 year old had been comparing her school's house colours to that of the biggest basketball teams on the planet...
not 2 be blamed....her loyalties lied with the colour..........

colours that teach u 2 compete.....
colours that teach u 2 savour a win.....
colours that teach u 2 accept a loss sportingly....
colours that teach u loyalty.....

suddenly,i felt nostalgic...wasn't it school that gave me my first experience of all this??........

yes..!!,,,i remembered my days as a proud premait(prema house :p)...green was my colour in school nd my sis ws a dharma house.. gal...yellow being her colour...

I called her back...after much cajoling and a cadbury five star she finally agreed .....i made her sit in my lap and watched the entire match with her......

I was grateful 2 her...

2day...I visited school....
A smile played on my lips as i passed the school playground,remembered dose days.... a mish-mash of red,green,blue and yellow shirts enjoying themselves to the hilt....

P.S-my baby sis's curse did affect me in more ways than one......
YELLOW DID WIN FINALLY......
(LAKERS(yellow jersey in pic) finally beat CELTICS(green jersey in pic) 4-3 in one of the most closely contested NBA finals in recent history)....nt that i'm complaining,me being a LAKERS fan........

"no wonder green house nvr wins.......:( :P
