Football Memories – Ground is Water

It’s almost 30 years since I left this campus. But the memories still remain. The monsoon rain and the urge to play football before the class and after it. Surprisingly, even after so many years the playground at Don Bosco High School Irinjalakuda remains the same. With thick grass and water pool near the goal post, it was mischievously delightful to play there. Blue trousers and white shirts obviously ended up colorful after each time. Even if it doesn’t get dirty, we made sure, a hit to the most clean uniformed classmate gets an imprint on his shirt. Thomson, Franson, Nandan, Pradeep, Biju, Nandakumar, Jayachandran….. List of names never end….. A casual visit to the school brought back your memories. It was lunch time and drizzling. So the students were having food from their lunch pack within the classroom. Hmm, the smell of packed food from home was in the air throughout the corridor. I remember also the PT Sir, of that time, who used to tell us the special title here. Miss you all.

Adding some more passing shots…

    Ramesh, You remember the PT Sir? Well what I remember the best in him was the blue-wire attached whistle that he would swing energetically. Though a slim man he was, his whistling was terrific! Once he messed up 'left' for 'right' and started swinging his blue-wired whistle for beating some of us. Soon he understood his mistake and said 'Sorry'…. “God, Bless him and keep him wherever he is”
