Children visitors turn nostalgic of their school
Srinagar, July 24: At a time when LD Memorial Cultural Center was being inaugurated, three boys -Fahad, Waris and Aashiq turned nostalgic as they looked at the photograph of their school, LD Memorial School.
“In 2009 when the school was demolished, I was studying in class 7th and we were suddenly made to shift to other school. I have very fond memories as we spent our entire childhood here,” Fahad, a Lal Ded School alumni recapped.
His colleague Aashiq said: “Our school from outside looked very old. But inside, it was one of the best architectural places made by humans.”
The students were not satisfied with the government statements. “Government is trying to show off its achievements. But it never thought of those students who were studying in the school,” the students said.
They argued that why the school which used to be “blessing for the poor children was allowed to be demolished by the government.” “Despite assurances to our parents the (government) never bothered to give us any alternative,” the students said.
