Illustration Friday : Parade

In School, we had to endure half an hour of morning assembly everyday... And there was no way of escaping it, unless if you fainted or were late for school, but if you did you'd have to stay out in the sun anyways...

It started with a prayer, and then it went on to the news, and then a happy birthday song for anyone whose was born on that day and some years ago, and then some announcements by the principal or vice principal, and finally the national anthem...

I changed my school after the tenth and joined army school... in the vast grounds and the morning prayer accompanied by drums and the harmonium, every morning assembly felt like a parade (:P) ...

We had a school song as well. Once a week, we'd replace the morning prayer with the school song... the words go somewhat like this...

We are children Happy and Gay,
Strongly united, walking all the way,
We are from Army school proudly say,
Always we know and firmly say,

A for amity and Aspiration
R for ready to help anyone,
M for morals we keep with us,
Y for young and yet courageous.

Army school we sing and declare,
we will shine every where,
.....

i forget the rest...

We'd always meddle up the second line.... :P

That must be before the other connotations of the word 'Gay' became popular :)
