Peeking through ‚monuments of archeological value‚ or memories and reminiscing about an almost three years old train journey as I was shifting from my native place to the capital city Delhi with hell lot of luggage as I had taken admission in the University of Delhi, I was halfway through my journey and vestiges of homesickness were still affecting my peace of mind. Although I was travelling but my heart and soul were still enjoying being couch potatoes at home, but at that time little did I know was this that after three years the same situation will going to surround me and the only change now is that, this time its not my home but my college which I am suppose to leave. But this is how life goes on which teaches us that attachments work only with e-mails and not with people and places
Irony smirked as, for others month of April is known for new year and new beginnings but for me April has come up with an end, an end which is inevitable yet difficult to accept and why not so ,isn’t a tag of DUite is more soothing than a DU alumnus? Pragmatically, a span of three years is not of much empirical value out of whole lifespan but when those three years encompass the duration of college life then it becomes obvious to designate them as the most beautiful and productive years of life. As a fun fact ,that despite of demonetisation and tax reforms there was no stopping for credit of happy memories in account of life as last bench gimmicks, having successful mass bunks (sometimes though) ,creating snap stories from crazy cum goofy filters, exploring campus eateries ,attending fest’s were in full swing. Procrastination had also taken its toll as attending first lecture was no longer at the top of priority list because temptation of some extra amount of sleep has ousted it but this had its own repurcussions too as facing last minute crisis and chaos of preparing for internal exams was a tedious task. Despite of hectic schedule of lectures, the only respite was being part of some active societies of college which have always been a platform to voice our opinions, hobbies and interests.
After returning from a beautiful flashback, we can just say that this is surely an end of a phase but simultaneously it is also beginning of a bright future which is just a few steps away. We know goodbyes are tough but we can assure that farewell parties of respective departments, societies and college are around the corner which will make waving hands to each other a bit easy.
