tHoSe wErE d'DaYs !!!!

Was talking to a friend of mine... about the movie theatres in Delhi and NCR and reminded myself of the first ever movie I saw at Priya's... Call it an embarassing moment or a innocent mistake of a young boy :) whatever... this is how it happened...

Once upon a time.. ok 1996 to be precise, a young boy named Prashant went to see a movie at a movie theatre called Priya in Delhi... when he reached there he promptly went to the ticket counter and bought two tickets for the balcony, one for himself.. and the other one for his friend who tagged along with him for the movie... the movie he wanted to see was "Desperado" Antonia Banderas and the ummmmmmm Salma Hyke.... So he enters the hall with his friend and takes the great centre seats from where the movie exp of that action movie would be great !!!The movie did not start on time.. however there were a few movie trailers of various movies and then this loooooooooong trailer of a movie called "Miracle on the 24th Street".... this trailer looked like a movie itself, and when it did not finish for about 45 odd minutes, and Prashant really got restless looking at the santa and the young kids on the screen when he was expecting Antonio Banderas to kill the bad men with his gun.. he finally decided to talk to the person sitting on the next seat.... he asked the guy... "Sir ji, what movie is this?", the man sadly replied, "I have no idea, I came here to watch Desperado!!!" and Prashant was back on his seat.. looking at that sweet movie about christmas.... finally the movie got over in about 90 odd minutes.. and when he came out of the hall.. he found out that Priya was playing both the movies though at different times.. and by mishtake he had bought the tickets of the show when they were showing the Miracle movie....

those were the days... when we used to move around on scooters without licenses.. and always had only enough mooolah in our pockets to bribe the policewalas if they catch us...
those were the days when college gurls were really attractive, specially coz they could wear whatever they want.. even when they went to their classes...
those were the days when we got punished for not standing in a straight line during the morning prayers in our school...
those were the days when we used to plant small bombs in the school toilets around diwali....
those were the days when we used to talk to our juniors as if we owned the school...
those were the days when we used to steal sodium out of the chemistry lab and put in the water sink to see it explode...
those were the days when we used to sneak into the commerce section as soon as our classes were over...
those were the days when we used to stand outside the class in the entier period coz we were late for the class...
those were the days when we used to reach home in the afternoon and sleeep till evenings....
those were the days when we used to stand on our bus stands in the mornings and check out gurls from other schools...

those were the days that still make me feel nostalgic and want me to go back to them.... missing you life !!!!
