Good old days...

Memories are flooding past one by one. Yesterday, I went to Hot breads in Jersey City and got a veg. puff and a black forest cake - a most favoured combination of our gang. I was reminded of those good old days when we used to stop by 'Iyengar's bakery' or 'Hot puffs' and have a veg puff and a cake ; days when myself, roger and kaus2 used to go to the college canteen to get their samosa / cutlet with the watered down ketchup.


Then there were those days when we spent entire evenings playing carom. Each one had our 'specialty' shots, weakness and strengths. We would play for hours together. Someday I would get the samosa/puff - cake combo from the bakery. Or my father would come in and give us trays filled with some snacks or pass on glasses of some juice. Nice days :) Why this sudden flash back of the carrom days ???? - I bought a carrom board today !!!!!!! - Played the game after a long time.


Hope we will get to have a replay of those good old days sometime in future. I know it will not be the same again - Still...

I too was a 'veg puff priyan' during my college days. My purse generally had only 10-20 rupees (that too only occasionally :)) but my college bag would be filled with all the 'sillarai'.. how many days have I scrubbed my bag to the depths to collect those coins and buy a puff from 'Thirunalveli halwa stall' near Sanatorium station. heaven!

I too remember such times Ravi, when I would search all the nook and corners of my bag to collect the 'sillarais' for that veg. puff / cutlet. I remember one particular time when me and my friend ransacked our bags and collected all our coins only to find that we were 5 paise short of the cost of the veg puffs. We then give all those coins to the guy and shop and threw a stupid smile at him. He did give us the veg. puffs then :)
