A walk down memory lane...

This Saturday....was one Im never...gonna forget..
I had to collect my LC from college..and Saturday being the only day I can make it...chose this Saturday to be the one..!
Its not that I would neva wanna go back to college...its just that my college is in an area...I neva cross...even in the worst situation..:)

So, the plan was made...called up some friends..asked them to come down too...our college being the best place to hangout..:)
I decided to use the PMT for transport, just to actually re-live those college days. Believe me, a bus ride, all the way from Nagar road to Katraj has never ever been so peaceful. It actually felt nice seeing those faces...I saw everyday while travelling. All those small gallis the bus goes through, the daily squabbles about change, the bus didn’t stop at the bus stop, excuse me this is a ladies seat etc etc....hehe..it actually felt nice...felt that Im back....back to college...:)
Whenever I had to reach college, I had to walk through the bharti campus to reach my college. Then, that stretch was a pain. It felt as if I was dragging my feet...but today...it felt so nice. Never felt the place was so serene....I couldn’t help but smile while I remembered all the old days, the kattas there, the hours we’ve spent there...:)...felt like Im back...back to college...:)




The backmarket area, our regular hangouts, Lalit’s cold coffee...bhel center, fruit plate etc etc...as I passed all these...I couldn’t help but look for those familiar faces and feel that Im back...back to college...:)
Finally reached the entrance, I’ve never ever felt so eager to get in...but this time...it was like I really wanted to get there...get in...go back to college...:)




Couldn’t help but look at all our favourite ‘kattas’ in college...
The first...the steps at the entrance...:)



Second...the usually unusual spot....the terrace. This place holds memories...that are most treasured. All the weird practices during addiction. Dance rehearsals, tp rehearsals, tp talks, faltu gossip, arguments, tantrums, nightouts...this place holds it all...:)



Every step I took towards the most visited areas....felt as if Im reliving those moments...all the memorable time we spent...just flashed across. Made me feel that Im back...back to college...:)
Met some old friends....met some of the faculty...met the professors in the workshop..they were the happiest to see us...:) Saw the new library the college has...I bet you its hardly gonna be used for study...as if the library was ever used to study...:P
Every place....every place in the college has its own memories...be it the library, the lawn...(the photoshoot)...the sac...the labs(our project days...:D)....the corridors...the classrooms...(always empty tho..:D )...the multipurpose ground...the canteen(sirf naam ka canteen...khane ko kuch nahi milta...) .. the hostel..(ohh how we’ve always tricked the guard..:D)...even the eateries outside the college...:)
I loved every moment...I loved reliving every moment...I loved the feeling...that Im back to college...:) I loved this walk down memory lane...!

U made me nostalgic too!! Those days ...for a moment ...like those days just passed by..sometimes I feel becomin nostalgic is not good all d time...it sweeps you away from accepting the good of now...or it can also be like...walk down and a tear here and der...and you become sensitive again ...or may be...just a gift of life for sharing some good time...lol ..so many views...all matters is the sweetness...ha ha...dont beleive im writing this ..
