Life or something like that!

I still remember the first day of my college....

I was dressed up as a joker; complete formals, no shoes, no stylish haircuts, "Just look like a loser" thats what my seniors said!
I was feeling a bit nervous, but also excited!
Then all of a sudden a very beautiful girl came unto me and said something.....
Well I can't remember what exactly she said but I was mesmerized by her beauty!
Man! She was soo hot!!
Well you can say it might be the effect of the two years of stay in a boys college but still she was awesome!

Everyday I would look for her! Hope that she would once again come and rag me!
But naah! Luck didn't favor me...
Though I saw her lot of times but still never had the guts to talk to her......

Three years have passed without a notice now!

Time seemed to be running......

And we still cuddling ourselves in our beds.....

Not willing to face the fact that soon everything will be over...

Yes! We are the final years!
Just few days now....

We know when we started our journey we thought it would be a joy ride; but now we knew it's not!
We had our share of ups and downs.......

The fresher's parties..... The first time discos...
The first time boozing sessions! The fags......
The biker boys.... The hangouts....
the girls.....err!....... Sorry not the girls though!!!!!
Yeah I am still unlucky!!

And not to forget the night outs!!
Well how I could just wish we were not measured by our marks....
Because.....we just studied one damn night and still passed (most of the times)......

How suddenly on the day of the exams we all remembered the almighty.....
Begging him for more...

The first time I failed ...It was hard to take.....
I was broke completely; thought everything was over.....
but then how I forgot everything over a peg of vodka!!
Then I became kinda used to it!!

All of a sudden the final year arrived....

Suddenly for the first time in years we all passed all the subjects.....
"No backlogs; All cleared" read my mark sheet!

The placement season arrived....
Suddenly we all thought of giving a meaning to our lives...
Few of us got placed few of us still waiting anxiously for the next company....
Few trying to fly off to the US....
And others going to rule the world as MBA's
The time had come to realize our dreams..... to draw a meaning out of our stupid lives...

Well as I scibble down this post... I know well ....
Maybe it's going to be over soon...
All the bunking, the movies, the hangouts, those parties....
suddenly all seemed to be fading away.....like the sunset...

Suddenly few days from now, I will get up from my bed and think of getting dressed to college...then suddenly I shall realize....
It's over.....

No more lazy days.....
No more late night parties.....
No more stupid gossips...
Well.....I am gonna certainly miss all these days....

Well but.... Let me sign off and enjoy the last few moments...
Just hoping that these days be longer....

As someone rightly said..
"Every good thing has to end! But memories will remain.....memories will remain!!!"

Funny it is.. Every engineering college follows the same routine all over India I guess. :D
Me too in final year now.. & it's strange in one way.. NOw that we are all placed & kind of looking ahead at what's to come.. There was no ragging, no booze, no fag for us.. But there have been other moments.. Bad thing is.. How all of us yearn to go out, see the new life, separate from our self created support system.. These 4 years.. are being taken for granted.. But I can already feel the nostalgia.. nice post.

Suni.
