The Alien Box


Since last few months , I have developed a very annoying habit of misplacing things . I have been misplacing my books , shoes , spects , even my admit card a couple of times . The scene has not changed much . I have misplaced all the pen drives and now I am in a mission to track them down , a mission to track 12 GB of lost data . Today in the morning , whenΒ an almirah was attacked under the search operation , I noticed an alien box covered with dust lying at the right corner of the bottommost shelf , all alone and neglected .

Well the box didn’t appeared so much alien after I gave it a bit of dusting . Here is a snapshot of its contents . πŸ™‚

Isn’t it colorful ? Well it took me little time to recall what this box was all about . It was around 5 years back when I used this box as my storehouse πŸ˜€ . It was everything to me a few years back , and now I almost forgot about it . Funny little life it is .Β And what exactly I kept here ? I started scanning its contents.

Apart from all those dazzling stuff , the box also turned out to be the home of all sorts of bugs and mosquitoes , who escaped in a hurry as soon as I opened the box , as if they saw a ghost . After disturbing their sleep , I came across a bunch of Pokemon goodies . A number of tazzos , tattoos , cards and a Pokemon diary were waiting for me , all of them neatly packed and as good as new . A few years back , there was a huge craze over the Pokemon series among all the kids . I was no exception 😳 . I was so obsessed of them that I took all the measures to keep them in a perfect condition forever .

The Pokemon stuff was accompanied by a World Cup 2003 autograph book and a Britannia Cricket Book titled Rahul The Wall . There also lied a World Series Companion ’87 . I don’t know what it was doing there . I was not even born in 1987 😯 .

A whole group of tattoos , stickers , a blank diary and WWF cards were next to follow . I also got my hands across two cricket magazines (Cricket Samrat) and a Nagraj poster . That reminds me that I also once happened to own a notable collection of Raj comics . Wonder where they might be . I never expected to find this box after such a long interval . Who knows I might discover those comics too .

The mission to track the pen drives down must be given a break πŸ˜› . Time to send a search party for those comics . Super Commando Harsh is coming . 8)

  6. It happens to me too. Sometime back, I found my collection of picture postcards and stamps. BUt it gives you a pleasure to run into them again even if you dotn need them now. Enjoy your goodies! πŸ˜‰

  7. what a pic…. so many random things… somewhere it felt as if i was seeing a visual representation of your brain πŸ˜›

    @poonam … its surely feels good to have a look at them again and relive ur old days … It was an excellent feeling to look at the wonderful collection I possessed πŸ˜›

    @alice …thnx πŸ˜€ … and visual representation of my brain … lol … yeah it is πŸ˜‰ …

    @vibhuti…. infact we can’t help but to misplace things … so many things , so little time πŸ˜†

  10. Wow! I too used to keep things protected and away from everyone’s eyes πŸ™‚

    And I always feel happy like a kid when I stumble upon such forgotten stuff by chance (like you did)!

  11. @ayesha…absolutely….I was really happy (and surprised too)to find it ….. spent almost an hour scanning its contents ….. everything was as good as new … πŸ˜€

  12. Damn ur post!!!! 😑
    It reminded me I have to hunt for my own pendrive, a spare MMC, MMC Reader, headphones and Uhhhh, a long lost Calcy!!!! 😑
    Btw, I too have a fetish of collecting the silliest of things since childhood! The next day I get a few hours, I, too, am gonna open my Pandora’s Box !!! πŸ˜€

  13. @ambika …. I think calcies are meant to be lost .. 😦 … I have misplaced 3 calcies in one year … why do all the 100 MS look alike …. 😑 ….

    best of luck with your Pandora’s box .. πŸ˜‰

  14. hi there!!
    i knowww…. such incidents make u go like, “OMG”… i rem last year when i was shifting my home, i came across a box of ear studs… lol… i dont even rem them…

    see ya!

  15. Hehe…funny post! Jazzy, colourful box! Isn’t it weird how we save up a lot of stuff which we never actually need? I actually bought a whole suitcase of such stuff all the way from Trivandrum to B’lore — now i got no clue what to do with them πŸ˜€

  16. @priya….infact after looking at them I thought how stupid I was to spend loads of money on Uncle Chips to obtain the Pokemon Tazzo within … 😳

    @ all the stuff that you have brought … try taking it back frm B’lore to Trivandrum πŸ˜‰

  17. A few days back, my house was getting whitewashed and I came across my collection of picture postcards and cassettes. It was very nostalgic, although it all seems very stupid now. πŸ™‚

  18. See – we have another thing in common now with my grandmother. All three of us like to store old stuff. πŸ˜›

    I also never remember where I put stuff, so I have fixed three four places with boxes to dump random stuff in – so when I need something I go over and look through the boxes and eventually things come up from one of the boxes – and the boxes get cleaned in the process too! Sometimes I find money too in there – thats a cool surprise! πŸ˜›

  19. Funny little life, it sure is πŸ™‚

    I have those pokemon tazos & cards too. I just love them πŸ™‚

    B/w that’s Nagraj in the center, right?

  20. oh so you had your memories revived πŸ˜›
    i too collected those tazo’s , i always bought a lays packet to add on to my collections
    had around 80 πŸ˜›
    hey use that box tom keep all the things you misplace ……what say?

  21. @kido….yeah that’s Nagraj , obviously πŸ˜† …. my favorite Raj comic character …

    @arpit……thats a good idea….but what if I misplace the box itself…. 😯
