What is special about these photos, other than the fact that the kids are all charmingly dressed up? I’ve known each and every kid here from Grade 1 or earlier, except the last one, whom I met on my walk. And that gives me my favorite smiles! I can go back in time and recall them, as tiny tots, enthusiastically skipping into the school gate. Gradually, they’d walk leisurely, chatting with their class mates. Initially they’d come running and hug me, talk to me, give me advice (like wearing a helmet is bad for my hair. Yes, really!) Now, they pass me by, wish me sedately and move on. Some of the girls still borrow a comb or a pin. Everyone has a happy grin for me, though! Happiness personified.
