Essence of Reminiscence - Part 1


While rummaging through some old files and other multifarious objects kept locked my armoire, a plethora of knickknacks and documents flooded before me. The first object that caught my eye was a dilapidated, musty piece of paper which read, 'Anukriti...Assembly of God Church School(Tolly), Unit II K.G. 21.4.93'... A timeworn examination paper with spellings, dictation, a number of colouring activities, some add and subtract sums and several questions like why do we need water, write the name of two wild animals, four flowers and whatnot. I read my answers and smiled at my handwriting which has changed a lot over the years. A 15 year old piece of paper...seasoned with the essence of my childhood! It may seem insignificant for some to attach so much importance to a trivial fragment of paper but for me its a storehouse of memories, a repository of my life. With my mind lost in juvenile thoughts my hand unawares brushed against a charming object.

Selection of words, seems to be bit odd at times and killing the very soul of the this would be great piece of work.

First three lines and the other lines require balancing. Please have a look.

Thanks,

Why use so many complicated words just because you know them? Keep it simple!

Hey
Saw your pic on orkut visited your profile came to ur blog and read it :o)
Now…
I really think it was such a high quality initiation of a distinguished piece of writing, something which seems to be an engrossing trivia of childhood reminiscences which everyone can effortlessly relate to… but the way you have cut short it illustrate many things…

Never use "seem insignificant for some" those words....
each one has its own significance in our life otherwise they r nt in our life chahe wo hmari ankhon se girne wale aansun ho ya koi adhura khwab jo kabka dum tor chuka hai.!!!!
tumne us Kagaj ko bhi Anmol bna diya.....

Lekin jab bhi kisi ko itna mahatv do to usko poori tarah se samapt bhi karo beech me hi apne vichaaro ko viraam mat do isse ek Nirantarta samapt ho jati hai!!!!
