2 years back!!!!hmm......

oooooooooo!!!! it was the farewell day in college. All the girls in our class decided to wear a saree. So a week before, the preparations started. I just hate getting all prepared, but my mom wanted me to look perfect with the saree. So she made all the preparations!!!
Finally the day arrived. I even remember the date - 07-Jun-2003.
Well i got up early in the morning... Then started getting ready, the college bus was at 7.30, so had to wake up by 6 atleast that day coz of this saree thing. This was the saree which mom had bought for me for Sankranti[Pongal]. Ok ok i am not here to describe the saree i wore. We reached college around 8. And met all most of my classmates there. And yes very imp "I got a lot of compliments". I was looking good in a saree ... ahem ahem... Its true. I get compliments whenever i wear a saree.
Any ways the function there was pretty boring. I mean bhashan from prinici, HODs etc as to now we have a gr8 life ahead, we should be responsible and all that stuff...
All of us had this fear in mind.... about our future. Our exams would be over by month end... and then... what would we do????? Will we get a job????? What will be our salary?????? What work would we do??? How would we blend with people???? So many questions... So much anxiety...
But that day all of us just wanted to enjoy... forget all worries about our exams, our future... everything. Who knows where we would all go and if we would ever meet in our lives...

After the function in college, which got over by 2 or so, all of us thought we'll go have lunch, so some 20-25 of us went to a dhaba. And it was really good. The food, the fun everything. I just cant forget that in my lifetime. That day i spoke to so many guys who were in my class, but i had never spoken to. After all the fun and hungama, we all decided to leave. Finally reached home at 5 or 5.30... Then took rest for a while...[I was supposed to be preparing for the aptitude test next day]. Then just set rite all my documents which were required and had even more fun. All this while, hadnt even touched my book for even going through the kind of questions... Whatever happens, will happen for good was my opinion,and i just slept... dreaming of what would happen the next day.. will i get thru the test.. .will i get a job...With these dreams, my gr8 day came to an end.
Oh how much i miss those days :)

Saree... Hmmm am sure that would have been one beautiful sight. We always longed to see our class girls in Saree... And so every symposium, culturals, college parties is a hit, and all for this reason.

And nice to see someone soo vividly remember whatever that happened 2 years back. Gladly for me, the farewell was after the campus recruitments got over. So, there was no worry in mind about job or salary.

Right from the word "oooooo" I can see u all excited about that day !!!

Vivhyd said...

There are a few moments in life which remain very fresh in minds. This was one of them...
That was the first time i wore a saree in 4 years of engg...

vivhyd,
Well, mom just dint want me to go to the function like a tomboy, so she had to take up that extra effort, coz i really hate to do make up and stuff, will surely blogroll u soon. Link is pretty slow and so it will take a lot of time now. Hence postponed it to tom :)

Prakash,

Aha! You've got a nice blog here! Glad that you visited mine and gave me a reason to visit yours! Farewell day!! *sigh* always makes me nostalgic!! Gals looking pretty in sarees, guys trying to look at their best, exchanging authographs, hugging best pals like never before, dancing away to glory and then finally those moist eyes and promises to keep in touch forever! This all sounds so close to my heart!

Very well written post! Keep writing pal... and expect me more often! :)

"I got a lot of compliments"
- Poor guys forced to lie on the farewell day ;-)

Just kidding. Well there are a few days (for me most of the days) in college life which can never be forgotten.

The first day as one enters the campus - with a belief that we are free birds only to be brought back to earth by the strict lecturers - The hide and seek to avoid being ragged - Waiting with bated breath for the online results only to see connection timeouts - First time when one top the university - First mass bunk for a movie - The college strikes (reason can be decided later on)- Culturals.... - Combined "studies" - The first presentation in conference - Farewells........

Your post stirs a lot of old memories. However let me stop spamming ur blog....
