Please Read this before you watch the Video !
Now that you’ve seen the video, you may feel “why is this guy running through these ruins & why do i have to spend 5 minutes to watch this video”. Well let me paint some context !
Imagine your school ! Days of those 12+ years you have spent, which you don’t even remember.. that just pop out in your mind when you see a picture of your classroom or benches (or chairs for those privileged) you sat, the playground where you broke your knees & bled. The moments of your first crush (second, third & fourth for guys like me), place where you used to have your lunch, place where you used to park your bicycles, the corner where that ruthless math teacher caned you like crazy, PET that used to break your knuckles, the wall that still has the print of your ‘goda kurchi‘. Those days when you prayed like crazy to just get done with the school & get the hell out of there for good !
Now imagine walking through the same premise in ruins and recognising every nook & corner which (you thought) didn’t even exist in your memory lanes until today. Something similar happened when I saw the video ‘Gates to Heaven‘ (my nephew KeyRun made) this morning as I was leaving for work. I couldn’t resist but call him & appreciate him for bringing all those memories back.
The ruins you see are of my school, Platinum Jubilee High School (PJHS), Warangal (Telangana / A.P, India) [Locate on WikiMapia | GoogleMaps], in late 90’s (please provide the year if you know) the campus was moved to a different location as the lease expired. I thought they’d demolish the old structure & raise apartments like in any case, but now i think it wasn’t demolished until now for the sake of this video.
Please share if you recall memories after you watch the video & leave a comment. I’m listing a few links for the alumni to find their long lost friends. Also leave a comment if you have details of more groups want me to add below.
