Looking back, these two years would have just swooshed past, but right here, right now, it seems so strange that we have just a week of classes more to go, before we break for the exams. It is a mix of emotions- happiness, warmth, elation; for having met some of the finest people I've ever known; and this heart-tightening feeling...that most of us will not have as much time as we did for others, or be as close to one another as we have been all these days!
And thus, since August 20th, 2008, we have come this far ! Made friends, teased, fooled around, became 'best' friends, fought with one another, all the hostel masti, the sleep-overs..combined studies, class bunking, getting blasted by faculty members,standing up for one another, 'being there' for each other..Growing Up!! Each one of my 58 classmates- friends.. Every single person has made such an impact on me, I will miss each of you very much!
This is my own personalised way of saying it; so.. here goes :) (p.s-There is no particular order I'm following)
