Jing Bhang!

The year was 1992. It was 10th June... We (my family) moved from bangalore to mysore on that day. I was to join a new school.
Naturally, I was extremely excited at the prospect of going to a new school.
Since we were new in town, I was yet to get all the necessary things that are to be taken to school.. and that included my new school uniform.. I hadn't bought it yet.

The school had started some 15 days back, but becasue of my father's transfer they had taken permission for me to start attending after 15 days.

So, it's my first day to school.... and guess what I wore??? A jazzy pink ghaagra choli (i can't believe myself right now as to how i decided on that dress...uffff) with silver checks all over!!!
I am sure people would have to wear cooling glasses to look at me!
I went to school... and as I was a new comer I was made to sit alone in a bench reserved for new comers... just imagine my state when the whole class is looking at me with wide eyes! They are all dressed spic and span in uniforms.
How was I wish I just dissapeared that day!

That's the most embarrassing moment of my life!
To add to this... during lunch break nobody invited me to join them for lunch..:( maybe they all thought I am from Yandalli!!! (it's a slang in kannada which effectively means some god forbidden village) and not fit to be accompanied for lunch...:(
