  • Very nice presentation down the memory lane..
    Even i use to make huts of tree leaves. We also had a mango tree behind our home in Sangli. I think this generation children are going to miss these close association to nature and little things that make us joys. This generation is about Xbox and games.

Transcript

  • 1. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre Memories of my childhood at Satara Sketches & Stories by Dinesh Katre Presented during Pecha Kucha Night, Pune 22nd Januray 2010
  • 2. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre We lived in a beautiful house at Satara. It was far away from the town and located on a hilly terrain.
  • 3. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre I didn’t play with plastic toys. I played with snails, frogs, caterpillars, butterflies and dragonflies. Of course, these friends showed up at different times of seasons.
  • 4. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre Getting a haircut was such a pain! I hated it the most during kindergarten years! Initially, it used to be a team effort between the barber and my family members. I didn’t play with plastic toys. I played with snails, frogs, caterpillars, butterflies, dragonflies, etc.
  • 5. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre It became worst when an old barber started coming home. We would sit in the garden and surrender our heads in his sweaty hands. He would take hours to complete his craft and then expect my father’s appreciative remarks.
  • 6. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre During rainy seasons, catching fish in the nearby streams was my favourite pass time! I would keep the fish in a transparent bottle and observe its reflective colors… I would secretively tell my friends about the place where I found the shiny blue fish! Once, I fed the pieces of Puran Poli to the fish and watched it die with sorrow…..
  • 7. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre We used to go to school by bus. Sometimes we walked up to the school to save 25 paise required for the bus ticket. Once, a large Peepal tree had collapsed near the bus stop. We would go early to the bus stop so as to climb the Peepal tree.
  • 8. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre My elder brother used to caution me to watch out from ants and insects on the Peepal tree. Sometimes, I missed the bus because I couldn’t get off the tree quickly. It was such a good excuse for going late to the school ;-)
  • 9. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre Our home was far away from the town of Satara. I remember several evenings when we walked the entire distance of 4-5 kms from the town to our home. If it became very boring my mother or brother would tell a story to me.
  • 10. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre I loved to build different forms of huts and shelters using the branches of trees and coconut leaves, on the terrace of our house or in our garden. I would sit inside the hut and try to get interested in the school homework. Most of my time would go in raising the huts in different places than study☺
  • 11. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre I used to weave mats and make brooms using coconut leaves sitting in our garden.
  • 12. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre I always preferred sitting under the tree or on its branches. I used to hide a packet of Sault and chilly powder in the branches of a guava tree in our garden. It was so handy while eating guavas!
  • 13. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre Like every other kid, I too was scared of ghosts, witches and demons. I used to perceive the shapes of demons in the shadows of trees or in the forms of clouds.
  • 14. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre I had a bad habit of running in and out of our house leaving the doors open. I remember a day in the summer, a mad old lady walked straight into the kitchen and started blabbering. It was so terrifying! After this experience, I always closed the main door of our house when I went out.
  • 15. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre On weekends, I liked being Ram or Hanuman! I would meticulously create the bow and arrows. I even tried shooting the lizards and snakes using my bow & arrows, but it worked only on lizards ☺
  • 16. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre I was scared of swimming until somebody threw me in the well! I am still searching that person. I suspect that my elder brother had asked his friend to do so ☺
  • 17. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre I loved observing the people- their faces, clothes, postures, talking and moving around.
  • 18. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre I liked observing the sparrows!
  • 19. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre I spend hours in the reminiscences of my childhood days, when I am alone ☺ Its a treasure of beautiful memories!
  • 20. © Copyright 2010, Dinesh Katre Now I realize that my childhood had nothing in excess except FREEDOM ! When I look back, I get a sense of something lost for ever!
