At a recent wedding I was covering, the bride told me that some of her cousins couldn’t attend the events since they had their board exams coming up. The very mention of the word ‘board exams’ transported me momentarily to another world. A world where I was wearing a Khaki uniform, holding my exam pad and hall ticket, doing last minute revisions outside the Shaheen block. This year marks a decade since I passed out of school. I completed my 12th from the Hyderabad Public School in early 2007.
