The big switch

    Just five days ago,I used to live a life of a maverick.I used to be an engineering student at COEP.I was living my college life
to the fullest.All things said and done about engineering and about college life,I was experiencing them.Friends used to my family,the 10 X 10 sized
hostel room,my abode.Then suddenly 1st,2nd,3rd and then 4th year is gone and the college life is over...snap ....cuttt........and I am at my home
staring at a walls awaiting a new life,a new challenge.


     As I retrospect my engineering days,I realise that I have still not been able to get over the nostalgia.I badly long for the hilarious lectures(yes they were hilarious) where learning was the last thing we did.I long for the after-lecture chats,the late night discussions,petty fights.I long for the 4.00 clock breakfast at mess and the meal with thousand others like me.
I long to share my secrets with closest friends and I long to have them share their secrets with me.I just cant get over the longing.

    But it is the last day of engineering,the 14th May,that will hound me every now and then.Had the end not been so blissful and memorable,I would not have realised what it actually means to be on cloud no 99.It was nice..surreal but nice.And now everything has been compiled into a souvenir.A souvenir that will remind me of the best days of my life.A souvenir that is going to make it hard for me to move on.

    Now,as I indulge myself in staring at the walls,looking into infinity,I am brought back to reality by my nephew who insists on showing me a magic trick with cards and then I look around and see my nieces and nephew awaiting my attention..I chuckle and let myself to be a subject to their prank.
