If there is one thing that reminds me of my days in Ura, then going hungry all the time is one that strikes my mind so vividly. I was a dull boy then. Hardworking and playing smart in my studies were thing I never knew about. Those things never actually bothered me.
But I as good in few things. I was a master in running away from my school, I did it whenever I went hungry. Walking alone in the night for 3 hours between school and home did little to deter me. I used to even run away from school when I felt bored. Other days, I remember either listening or parroting. That was in the class. But outside, I used to spend my days either beating some one or getting beaten back.
I never knew, I would do well in my studies and come first in my class. But looking at this transcript, I think sometimes I did. I was awarded the merit certificate in my academics. I still remember. That day, I received two different soaps tidily wrapped in white paper (Lux soap and one Lifebouy soap) I still remember how our headmaster handed me those soaps as my winning prize.
Alas! Its all torn and colored now. I have only few its kind and I wish I were little good in caring it.
