The Scribbles!

Colored, Pencils, Colors, Crayons, Colours, Coloured

She refused to paint the scribbled wall. “I love you Mom” stared back at her. She missed her little daughter!

The Last Page

Press the rewind button of your life, to a few years back, till you are in your high school. Then press the stop button. Pick up any note book and turn to the last page. What do you see there?

Well, I asked you to do this exercise, as today I just happened to open my daughter’s book. This is what I found on the last page !

Looking at this transported me back to my school days. Reflecting back, I fondly recollected my rendezvous with the last page of various note books. 😉


  • Secret messages in code words exchanged between me and my friends.
  • Countless games of tic tac toe, name place animal thing.
  • Chatting with friends in the form of Q & A, when the teacher turned to write on the blackboard 😉
  • Throwing blobs of ink from the fountain pen (no gel pen those days) in the centre of the page , folding the page and making unique symmetrical designs.
  • Writing down the note regarding HW or test.
  • Scribbling my name in different fonts.
  • Trying to write with my left hand
  • Attempting to perfect my future signature 😉
  • and many more ……..

I am sure the last page of our books unfold many emotions, mischiefs, stories and memories.

Children will always be children……..only the last page stories differ!

Lo behold! The saga of the last page

unravels sweet tales filled with

excitement of the young minds,

of the umpteen scribbles,

fun games played,

secret missions accomplished,

tête–à–tête with friends,

teacher’s caricatures.

A world of fantasy

that gets obscured with the passage of time


when chanced upon many birthdays later

brings a smile to your face

and opens nostalgic floodgates!
