This book is a special of its kind. For it talks about those darker parts of our childhood that all of us experience but nobody talks about when he or she has grown up. Especially as it talks about boys who belonged to a prestigious school where it was a shocker to even think about something leave alone talk about it. This work is in form of a collection of stories, tales and thoughts from a class of students who studied at St. Xavier’s School, Patna, one of the premier schools of Bihar for a decade from 1971-1980. The stories that are real are divided into seven parts. First one is the RANGEELA ENCOUNTER. It deals with anecdotes and tales which relate to childhood fantasies and dreams. The next section CHILD PRODIGIES deals with such students who by virtue of their sense of humor, their originality, their love for pleasure fun and their genius.WITHIN THE CLASSROOM deals with interesting events within the classroom involving both teachers and the taught. OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM deals with events of excitement and enlightenment within the school. Those events that took place either on the corridors or at the assembly ground or at the playground.BLOODY ENCOUNTERS relate to encounters among angry pals that almost turned bloody.OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL relate to tales outside the school. Beyond the school days. Beyond the school hours.THOUGHTS FROM THE PAST are musings from some of our classmates who otherwise could not distinguish themselves either at studies or at sports.
