Wished my parents for their 19th wedding anniversary. I clearly remember: last year on today’s date, my parents had taken me and my sister for dinner at a new Garden Restaurant. At that time, did any of us ever think that next year on this day we all would be under such circumstances that papa and mama would not even think of being able to enjoy the day?

OK. The day began… I went to my new school (henceforth mentioned as ‘school’) in the morning. Waited for over two hours, just to get the receipt of my hostel fees! Had gone at 10.30 and returned at 2.00. Got uniform, shoes etc from the uniform shop at the school. I tried the uniform at home (I look like wearing an Indian Navy uniform!!!) School timing is 7.40-1.40. I shall join the hostel next week.
