Summer afternoons - never did change much.

Then
-------
Temperature: Touching 40 degrees celsius
Friends.
Hurriedly gulped down lunch.
Green, raw, sour mangoes. Ripe and green guavas.
Hide-and-seek in the gardens separated from each other by wire fences which were easy to pass through.
Not a single boring, dull, quiet moment.
"Do you know what teacher said today?"
"Fatso cannot climb trees, hide him behind that pile of wood."
"If you don't listen to me, I will not play with you."
Dreams, fun, adrenaline, opinions, worries, emotions - all at once, nothing can wait for the other.
Life couldn't wait too...

Today
-----
Temperatures: touching 30 degrees celsius
Friends.
Hurriedly gulped down lunch.
A few mugs of coffee...or maybe many.
Cherry blossoms. Tulips.
Yellow pollen on cars.
Some allergies, some early morning rendezvous, wi-fi coffee shops.
Team meetings, sessions, job search, projects, parties, trails and walks.
"So what's up?"
"I think you should..."
"Why don't you..."
"I really want to..."
"I really don't know."
Dreams, fun, adrenaline, opinions, worries, emotions - all at once, nothing can wait for the other.
Life still can't wait for us...

So what's changed?
Nothing, except for a gap of 20 years in between.
