Though i was a delhiite, it was never easy for me to adjust with new people .Hello and bye were the only two words which i used to utter and somehow people thought i was arrogant,some thought i was cocky, some thought i was snobby and my society members had a grievance that i don’t talk as i was going through all this shit something even worse happened my school best friend lost her father .It was heart rending , i was confused,i didn’t know what to do,i didn’t know how to console her,i felt my words had no worth,i didn’t have someone to share things with ,i felt lonesomeness. Then i realized the worth of people around,i was still in my school phase it was very difficult for me to leave my friends but now i had to move on,i had to get along with new people around and often these are the people who help you to learn and laugh. i realized i need to change at times to get to my destinations,my aims….
Bit by bit
My muteness was changed to sharing,writing,building stories,plays,dramas
My self effacement changed to expressing oneself in disgust, sadness, happiness,fear,anger, and in surprise
My disbelief changed to trusting, experiencing and feeling others believes
Dramatics helped me to connect, to feel, to express. Here i met 2 most amazing people,with whom i could share,laugh ,cry,sing, dance,fight,rely.We also went through some bad experiences ,people…we were abused,ill treated but why to think of bad when we have so many good things to share.
After few months bunking classes, proxies, crawling out of class from back door,chit chatting(bitching for some),going to washrooms in lectures and never getting back ( advice: do it when you are done with your attendance and ask your friend to throw your bag out from the window ) ,attending boring seminars just to get into air conditioned rooms ,begging lecturers to postpone tests or accepting late assignments,screaming “bhaiya dosa with extra coconut chatini jaldi “,outstation friends grappling your ghar ka khanna,
sleeping in lectures (and trust me they are the best naps you have ever had),celebrating your friend’s birthday with maggi cake,nescafe,canteen,coke studio,across becomes a daily dose of your college days
And the people who think you don’t have to study in college, just stop day dreaming guys
Because let me remind you while taking admission in schools and then in college we take an oath that
We the students of india
Studies are the only thing we are passionate about
We’ll not dare to participate in any other activity
We promise to get 99% in every exam no matter how
We’ll never make our society and parents feel distraught
