March 1

By the way....
Except that it means the official  closure of winter season,March 1 holds no significance for me as it appears to be just another day of a laid back ordinary  retired life that I am leading.
But not so when I was  a school student.March 1 meant the end of two month winter vacation, starting the usual routine of early rising, getting prepared for  school, having a quick repast and  carrying the heavy school bag, usually a pitthu.
New unform, new pair of black leather shoes with white crepe soles held no attraction the first day as one simply felt compelled to  go to school  most unwillingly and reluctantly after two months of merry making, carefree  life and devil may care attitude.
But one did get used to the new routine after the first day .
