Goodbye Pilani!

Warning: This post is filled with cliché’s and written in broken sms English. So all the people who want to make fun of it, remember, you have been forewarned!

It’s been four years since I’v come here. Four long years. Looking back, it doesn’t seem to have been too long. I can still remember my first day here…My first reaction looking at the gate “this must be the back entrance”…looking at the hostels…”I wanna go back rite now!”…looking at the temple..”Oh wow! Finally something nice”…looking at the clock tower..”not much of a reaction actually”…and the the heat was killing me!! get the point..

So yeah..its been four nice years..had some good moments..some bad moments..some really good moments…have made my friends for life here..(hopefully :-D)…have met so many ppl here with such various interests that it actually baffles me rite now..have done some crazy things that I thought I’d never do…well…its been great.. ( I really would want to elaborate..maybe some other time) now I m leaving ? how does that make me feel ? Frankly, I m not too sure..maybe I haven’t accepted it yet..or maybe I have…I keep tellin myself abt how this is not an ending but a new beginning..but yeah..i m gonna miss this place like crazy..i’m gonna miss a lot of things..and if I start listing them down..its gonna go on n on...

Few things to acknowledge..

-Budh 309-Gandhi 182-Krishna 140-Malviya 403 for being a home away from home..
-Department of Sponsorship & Marketing for being my family here(:-D)..
-The English Drama Club for letting me explore my inner talents..( was amazing in the club)
-Moruchhaya for keeping in lieu with my bong roots..
-SKY for being my safe haven..( *sigh*..pappu’s chaiz…)
-Krishna Redi for feeding me..( srsly munnaji rocks!)
-SUB for all the wonderful games that we played there and the structure work..(hehe)
-SAC for DW!
-ANC for coffee that kept me awake..
-AUDI for all the RAF movies n music nites..
-OASIS…(need I say nething?)

-The Sand storms!
-The cold winters

There are like a million more of this…I really cant list all of them down…but every minute spent here was wonderful..(Yes besides me cribbing all the time..hehe..)

There is no better way to express what I’m going through rite now but these few lines…

Things are changing
It seems strange and
I need to figure this out
Yesterday we were laughing
Today I'm left here asking
Where has all the time gone now?
I'm left alone somehow
Growing up and getting older
I don't want to believe it's over
Don't say goodbye
Cause I don't wanna hear those words tonight
Cause maybe it's not the end
And although we knew
This time would come
Don't say anything tonight
If you're gonna say goodbye

This is an ode to everyone whom I met here and with whom I’ve shared all the wonderful memories that I’m taking back with me!
