Familiar Setting

Looking at this empty classroom during a summer break, I was taken back to my own school days. Feels like a different time and definitely a different place. Yet it seems to me that some things do not change even across national, cultural and liguistic borders.

This is a fine shot, and interesting commentary, Ayush.

What really stuck out in the image was the blackboards...even in rural Thailand they seem to have moved to whyteboards.
Interesting that profanity is the same no matter where you are!
I think the 'word' was written by someone withissues.

What is it they say: The more things change the more they stay the same! Even the graffiti!

I love all that green but imagine sitting behind THAT chair.
Clearly someone isn't enjoying their school days
well, that was probably the main topic!
From what I see nothing changes.
Nice image Ayush, things seemed so big back then grin

I can't believe such words would be seen in in a school with a name of "Christ the King". Those chairs not seem to be built for comfort.
I wonder if whoever wrote that got away with it unpunished.
Still has that classroom feel, something I was happy to forget.

This is funny - somebody felt very strong about someone else sitting behind him/her.
My classroom was never as bright as this!

Nothing changes where ever you are Aysuh.
Quite surprising to find these international words in such a place... Superb capture Ayush!
Wow. A memory indeed
You can understand the frustration having to sit on chairs that painful looking!
