School days memories- intertwined with lunch boxOld reminiscences of school days are still etched with mind and heart. Despite having a few bucks in pocket we would not consider ourselves less than a king. How beautiful those days were I long for. I wish I had those days back but what is gone is gone forever.
After the 4th period the recess bell would be rung and all of us would be waiting for hearing sweet sound of the bell and no sooner had the bell rung than all-over permeated silence went off was norm of the days.
Most of students would rush out of classes towards canteen, water tap or playground and I would open my lunch box to fill my tummy. We, friends, would share our food between us. Snatching the tiffin or even stealing others' food wasn't a crime or sin in our sight. Barter system in food items was common among us.
Today, food prepared by any cook no matter how famous a cook is or how expensive food is, it can't be compared in taste to my school lunch box because my mother would also pack her love and affectation in that lunch box.
A lunch box was something special which made me realize now that how our mother would love us, care about us and devoted her time for us.
