How I wish to go back to school!

Am I glad June is gone and July is here. June gives me "school blues". No, I am not of school-going age, obviously... which is why I get the blues every June morning, when I see students in crisp new uniforms and a bagful of notebooks and books walk or cycle to school. More than half a decade has gone by since I finished school, and yet I sigh everytime I see a school kid pass by. Why can't I go back to school, I wonder! Of course, college was equally enjoyable. But, I am sure adult literacy classes won't be so!

Hmmm... those were the best days of my life. The other day when I accompanied my sister for her admission interview, at my alma mater, I was so tempted to buy an application form for myself. Honestly. Perhaps I really ought to give up all my work, and go back to graduate school :-) Anybody wants to join me?

(Here's a pic I shot when I visited Stella Maris College, Chennai - my alma mater - with my sister last month. Look inside. Perhaps you'll find me dreamily reading a Wodehouse novel, or Kernighan and Ritchie's book on 'C' Programming!)
