Remember the day you walked into those huge gates? Had sweet crushes that made you tumble in your walk? Had a first-hand experience of standing and watching a movie on the very first day? Ever laughed like your stomach would be in tatters? Paid fine for not wearing ID card or wearing jeans in campus? Fought over insanely stupid things and patched up? If you are inadvertently nodding your head with a beaming smile, then YES! You have actually lived your college life. My college Sri Vidyanikethan Engg College had given me an experience of a life time. Now that I am out of its always-happy-campus, i must say i am already feeling very nostalgic like most of you who have cherished infinite memories with this college.–Teacher’s pet is that you??
Dear First benchers,
A simple ‘hello’ from the Back Benchers. Supposedly called teacher’s pets, there’s nothing better you could do than gossiping with them. Good for you. We sincerely would have never come in your way until you decided to ditch on us. So here’s the deal. You will write our assignments and records. If that’s too much we are expecting atleast share your materials with us- Academically Backward People. Else you ll be facing serious implications, after all it is because of us that you are getting so much attention.
Always hating you, BB.
–You got a reason, we gotta celebrate .
Birthday? Sister’s marriage? Brother’s promotion? Dad’s friend’s daughter’s husband bought a car? Passed a paper after writing it three times. What-so-ever is the reason, hum sab tumhare saath hain. So be a good buddy and treat us well. Who says birthday is complete without the birthday bumps ?
–Liar liar pants on fire!
Yeah we all know that you are otherwise an extremely obedient student. After all who cares if India’s playing a match against Auisses? Don’t we just love writing our records, pages and pages of crap assignment? Oh ya we really do. And what about you poor souls who were slapped by the fateful reality and unfortunately couldn’t write it.? You are smart enough that you can make up stories for that. But hey! weren’t those kaminey friends more wittier than you and wouldn’t they splash water on your strenuous efforts. And what would you still do? Throw them a-you-are-gonna-die-look and laugh at yourself.
–Bunking allowed (aloud) hai.
Well what would you probably do when you hate that subject or hate that professor? A lot options still do exists like Jabber on last night’s match (boy-boy), talks about the clearance sale down the market (girl-girl). Oh-dear-oh how did we forget the budding romances (girl-boy) all those eyes-meeting-he-laughing-she-shying moments? And then when you are tired of these daily-doings you have the bigger option BUNKING.
–A lot can happen in the canteen.
Isn’t canteen the most favorite spot in the whole college? All hands over a single pack of lays, endless gossiping and chatting over a plate of samosas, all those offensive looks from on-goers when you are laughing your heart out spilling coke all over the table, could something ever take over the fun we had in the canteen? And that extra token we managed to takeaway really made our day. Everyone of us has had a series of never ending stories of fun, laughter and cries.
With the all the hustle-bustle of things taking over our lives, I go down the memory lane wondering do I really have moments I could cry or cherish for?, and as I’m completing this post I’m glad I made so many wonderful memories to relish throughout my life. And to all those fresh collegiate I request you to pocket all those wonderful memories that come your way.
