Back to kindergarten me.. Here I’ve compiled a few more incidents that flash in my mind when I ruminate on my UKG days..
I came to know about this great man, as the man who first landed on the moon, when I enacted like him in the fancy dress competition.. My mom, who had zero idea about this make over, wanted me to perform this role.. Obviously, a make over came out which is not even accidentally remotely related to this image. .
My mom got the help of an uncle (my uncle’s friend), who came to school with a helmet and some accessories.. I’m dressed in a black suit which is the second good dress shopped by my dad from Kuwait.. The helmet, heavier than my head, is placed on my head.. A black bag, with some weightless stuffs inside just to fill it, is hung on my back. Then a tube, which I remember is an intravenous infusion set, is tied connecting the helmet and the bag.. Then he handed over a long stick to me and enacted how to use it.. Mr.Neil Armstrong is all set to land on the moon..
I landed on stage with this bizarre make over just to see the perplexed audience.. I made some different walking moves with the stick hitting the floor.. After several years, I realised that a stick must be used by Neil Armstrong to walk on the moon without gravity.. As I googled now, I couldn’t find any image of him holding a stick.. Despite all these puzzling factors, I bagged second prize.. Still thinking how!! 🙄
She is the same Rosy whom I mentioned in my earlier post, seven stars.. She was not my friend back then.. All I knew about her was that her dad owned a video coverage shop and she had a swelling on the left side of her forehead, which was congenital according to her.. Her dad’s shop was named Rosy videos.. Everybody at school called her Rosy videos.. This made me believe that her full name is Rosy videos.. This belief remained till my innocence waned off..
Her dad made a video coverage of our UKG school day(I think free of cost).. After the video cassette got ready, it was played in our sisters’ convent, with all the kids watching… For the initial few minutes, title song is played in which Rosy alone is seen.. We were awed looking at her walking and running back and forth through bushes..
I forgot this boy’s name, but his face is still clear in my mind.. All I remember about this guy is he fights, fights and fights… He starts his performance from the very next second after the teacher leaves the classroom and pretends like a quite boy once the next teacher arrives.. We leave enough space for the fighters to make sure that we don’t get hurt..
