This picture just brought back a flood of memories.

This picture was taken in Peshawar in May this year. But it could have been me so many years ago. I remember that blue sweater, that tie that never kept in place (that is before the uniforms changed to ‘malitia’ shalwar qameez), those pale-yellow choona painted walls (or pale green or pale blue).

The only thing I do not remember is having that big a smile on my face for the morning ‘Assembly’, which I assume this may be. And speaking of smiles, is this not a wonderful, infectious, honest smile.

I wonder, however, what the ‘266’ and ‘306’ written in chalk on that desk signify? Any ideas?

    “wonderful, infectious, honest smile”… doesn’t it make you feel better about the future of our world? And by the way, notice that only the two students in the front row are paying attention to the camera, rest are busy in their own world:) Just like we used to be in schoold days:)
    The numbers are roll numbers, before some exam. Two student per table, so two numbers. That also explains the smile as exams mean a free day after a couple of hours instead of full, boring day sitting in the class room:)
