After three years, and 1806 lectures later, college comes to an end. Three years ago, our journey started at Maitreyi College, University of Delhi. For me, it has since been a gala time, from not attending enough lectures, to submitting internal assignments on the day of the external exam ( call me brave, maybe? ), it has been a fearless and joyous ride.
To this day, I remember how I met my first friend in college, who I still share the same bond with, and forever will. I met Ipshita on the day of admission, on a sunny afternoon in 2014. We filled endless forms, and needed a companion when she called me to sit with her, and I’ve been sitting beside her ever since. Muskan and I met on the first day of college, when we were forced to sit in a room full of strangers, and we had a feeling we were two peas of the same pod and connected instantly. We since then can not get enough of each other, and are basically the same person. How I met the third of this crazy lot, was a random chance altogether. I entered a packed class in a rush, and asked if the chair in front of this girl was empty, where by the way her precious little tote was sat, to which she merrily replied with a yes, and that’s how Nupur and I met. Now that’s how everything started. From 2014 to 2017 and beyond.
Three years later, we bid adieu to college with a graduation hat on our heads, and immense warmth in our hearts, in hope of building our futures for a lifetime and going places, but all that without forgetting where we come from, and what helps us be grounded at all times, each other.
