Today I came across my old “AUTO BOOK” as we called it then. A small note book , where wrote few lines for our friends, as was the fad then. Some of my friends had even pasted their photograph. Going through the pages did bring back fond memories. Forgotten names and faces came back. I wonder where they all are now. We were really innocent and childish. The cover of the book itself shows how childish I was. I actually have picture of kittens and sticker of bambi. I had not discovered rock music yet, nor models or flim stars. Most of us wanted to be doctors then, very few ended up as one.
One of my teacher had written
” A human being is not in any proper sense, a human being till he is educated”.
I’m sure it must not have made any sense to me then, I was a very stupid 9 year old 🙂 , no sign of improvement there even after 18 years.
And what acronym and rhymes , where did we actually get those from.
I think I should put down a select few here.
ITALY ABC FRANCE
I- I A- Avoid F- Friendship
T- Trust B-Bad R- Remains
A- And C- Company A- And
L- Love N- Never
Y- You C- Can
“King loves golden ship, queen loves silver ship, But I love friendship”
” I have a pen that is blue, i have a fried that is you”
“Flower is to see not to pick, friendship is to make not to break”
” Mountains can fly, rivers can dry, you can forget me but never can I”
So tacky , but then we were stupid 9- 10 year old girls, Cable TV was not a reality , we had not discovered rock music. No internet. As compared to now life was pretty boring. So maybe this was our way of making it interesting.
