My First Day at School

My first day at school is the most memorable day of my life. It is the sweetest reminiscence of my childhood and is still glaring with fondness. I was sent to school for the first time when l was hardly four. On an auspicious day a ritual worship of Saraswati, the goddess of Iearning, was held in the family. I bowed before the deity with utmost solemnity. Sandal wood paste was pasted. on my forehead. Father took me to school (amidst pleasant tears in the eyes of the members of the family). The beating of my heart grew high in joy and excitement. As I stepped into the room of the Headmistress, I seemed to lose control over my limbs. So I grasped the arms of my father. But madam received me graciously with motherly tenderness. A teacher was asked to test me. She asked me some very easy questions and showing some pictures asked me to point out their names and colours. I answered very promptly. The clerk entered my name in the register on receipt of necessary fees. Then the HM. led me to the classroom and introduced me with other children. I felt at home among them and got rid of my hesitations. After school father took me home back. It was indeed, a day of days of my life.
