Thanks to BBC news I was reminded it happened exactly on 25th December. I wasn’t old enough to remember the date. I remember only the fact- 1st September we still had Lenin’s portraits above the blackboard and after the New Year’s holiday they disappeared and the teacher told us there won’t be history lessons for a while as the old history was branded wrong and the new one wasn’t written yet.

So for the second time in one century they demolished the “wrong history”.

I can’t remember much but the air smelled of freedom. I guess that’s when the famous Scorpion’s song was written.

So that’s what they called “the lost generation” here, the people educated in one society but brought to a new reality over night.

Thanks god I was too young to realise.

  3. Must’ve been quite magical. I always wished I could live through something revolutionary. But alas, life is too dull for us capitalists. 😉 Meanwhile, thank you for reminding me of Scorpions. Been ages since I last listened to them.
