One fine morning when I was sitting alone,
Remembrances of past year came hurling on their own!
The moment I thought about my college life,
All my memories just turned alive!
Suddenly all emotions got swallowed…
And a terse decision followed!!
The day was bright and thus I began to write..
On what had been an eventful year of my college life!!!
Till few days back; my life was in shambles,
But somewhere down the gut I felt; as soon as I’ll
Start going to college…
All these worries gonna disassemble!!
So that day of relief came after much anticipation,
As if an intern doctor had done his first operation!!
The campus seemed to be as big as a citadel.
For my new college life; it was the cradle!!
First few days were spent among the mates;
who were frightened by being ragged!
bt I wasn’t feared to be victim of such nags!!
As I braved this fear, I was literally rewarded; I swear!!
For first time my life experienced a romantic swirl,
When my seniors asked me to propose a girl!
I bent on my knees and proposed with ease,
But the girl in bewilderment did rather freeze!!
Even though I acted as a perfect swain,
But Alas! all my efforts just went in vain!!!
Each day gave me a new surprise,
But it wasn’t hard to acclimatize!
Fusion of students was class’ biggest strength,
All were alike; yet following different trends!!
Within few days, a sudden urge occupied my mind,
The ineluctable need of true friend made me blind!
Wasn’t sure if I was either inept or supine,
But soon realized that truest buddies are hardest things to find!!
Being at engineering college; life wasn’t easy as I
While studies kept looming over, I never felt relieved!
Thus to ease this burden; I made a humble wish;
ie; to befriend the people with ingenuity and inevitable wits!!
But alas! What agonized me most was that all my prayers went unheard ..
Instead of people I wished for; I landed among the nerds!!!
Each lecture seemed to be the resting hour,
With heads bent down; students resembled the warriors stripped of their power!!
Our biggest challenge was to stay awake,
Eyes would feel drowsy and plead” gimme a break”!!
Concluding time of class was undisputedly the sweetest of all..
But alas! End of class was a false dawn,
because they are the vicious circle that goes on n on and on!!!!
Sauntering in corridors; even after arrival of lecturer
was definitely matter of pride,
and teacher would just keep waiting as if a newly wed ready to love his bride!!!
Whenever free; spending hours on Insti roof;
playing pranks and practicing spoofs!
The bonding in our friend circle was so strong,
that even for few moments no one was left aloof!!
Besides cafeteria; nowhere else we did roam,
Because inside campus; ‘twas my second home!
Moments of ecstasy, hardships, celebrations and tensions,
We shared all inside it without intervention!!
In our case; bunking classes wasn’t a regular affair,
Fear of getting debarred just kept us aware!
Thankfully our college was amidst some coolest places in town,
That’s why on plans of eluding classes; we did never frown!!
Now I feel I must restrict myself till here…
else I would end up writing my biography on last year!!
Thus it’s time to sign off by giving my memories a
and hoping them to brighten up my days ahead with their sweet fragrance!!!
