The last page of my notebook





The last page of my notebook

The last page of my notebook...

A place where I check
whether my pen is working or not
A place where I calculate
the percentage out of the marks I got

The last page of my notebook...

A place where I play the game
of flames with my secret crush's name
Then strike it off so that no one sees
and not giving a chance for my best friend to tease

The last page of my notebook...

A place where I chat
with my friend when the class is going on
Unable to listen
the boring lecture going on since morn

The last page of my notebook...

A place where I note
important questions for the upcoming exam
A place where I scribble
random things or even try drawing the funny face of Ma'am

The last page of my notebook...

A place where I write
beautiful lines of my favorite song
A place where me and my friend play
tic-tac-toe with marks of right and wrong

The last pages of our notebooks...
aren't just pages, They are much more...
They are precious diaries...
where I unknowingly treasure our teenage memories...

P.s. While cleaning my shelf, I glanced upon the last pages of my notebooks. Each scribble on them had a story to tell. They all reminded me my college days! Ah!! miss those days really!! :(

So, What's in your last pages of notebooks? Please share few things :)

Hi Valli,
This is mesmerizing and interesting! :)
While reading I was surprised we all do the same :D

Loved it!

Fatima said...

That was nostalgic..I did it in school and I do it now. Made me realize once I'm done with college, I won't do that anymore.

Simple it a powerful one.

Valli---Even I used to scribble a lot on the last page of my note books when I was in college, but never really thought of its significance. Good that you have penned down something that all of us do but don't bother to think about...Wish, I had saved some of those pages of my life.Brilliant!

Grace said...

Goodness, those were the days I keep a notebook ~ My last page are summaries though, like a post script ~ Nowadays I don't have one anymore, its all in the draft of the blogger ~

This is really good ~

Green Speck said...

Those last pages really had a story to tell ... and yes, FLAMES, that was fun :)

Jyoti Mishra said...

hehe yeah
the last page of notebooks full of stories..
we scribble numbers, names, sentences, some random bad words :P

shivani said...

This time u made me feel nostalgic

Vallabh Kulkarni said...

Awesome...!!

Leo Paw said...

:) reminds of those sweet days. In my case, I didn't have a last page because 1 book would hold more than 3 subjects; the last subject starting from the last page in the revesre order.

kavz said...

Haha I used to do the same.. Nice one :)

jayneog said...

Yes, the last pages of old notebooks can really make you feel nostalgic.........And a nice blog design you have created with music player equipped.

Nice post.

Shaivi said...

Wow. I went nostalgic too after reading this one. My best friend & I used to chat by scribbling on the last page of my notebook in the class!

SRUTHI HARIDAS said...

awww...nostalgic.:)

Malini said...

Wonderful. As we grow up, what we used to write on the last page kept changing, isn't it? I remember scribbling tamil poetry on my last page. I also used to trace coins and scales on the last page. A stencil would mean more fun :)

Meenakshi Malhotra said...

Lovely poem, lovely thought. We all had so many secrets hidden in those last pages. You captured the essence so well.

Rahul Bhatia said...

Valli your last page of the notebook spoke more than the entire contents of the notebook perhaps:) Brilliant!!

Soumi Sarkar said...

Such a nice walk down the memory lane! :)
Doodles!! They be my favorite. :D
And yess.. definitely the last pages of each notebook has memories scribbled.. :)

GR said...

So true.... The last pages of the notebook are indeed for doodling, ever-so-important conversations with friends, mindless boggling during boring lectures and so many creative things :))

This is just fabulous and every single word is so true..must confess playing tic-tac-toe and calculating love percentages was a regular activity for last pages of the notebook.

Indrani said...

This is so well written. Lovely chain of words.

Sri Valli said...

Thanks for the read everyone :)

Suma Rajeev said...

Loved it..:)

Ankit Singh said...

Wonderful...takes me back to those naive school days...by the time i entered graduation, this bizarre scribbling had lost its charm...Now we do not even use the first pages of our notebooks...in today's world of Stylus we either start from last or we do not even buy paper books.
Appreciate your reminiscence and bringing alive the cherished childhood memories.

My last pages abode my random thoughts,
list of my tasks getting my attention short,
doodle of flowers which I once had got,
and anything related to lessons which my life has taught .

P.S. i loved this poem :)
