am really gonna miss this place..am gonna miss my college days....

finally....crawling,pulling myself along ,huffing and puffing...i have finally managed to reach my post grad final examinations....i dedicate this article to my college friends of the past two years...
that is my MSc Lifescience(applied medical sciences) batch.....
thinking back on the last two years....i will not say the usual mush mush about how great it was and how we rocked all the time...but,if i am honest with myself...i will wholeheartedly admit, we guys still are great and we had our own rocking (rocking the world as well as our world been rocked)times!!!

i don't know how the past couple of years passed so quickly....but am sure it happened in these few ways... these are some of the moments which will always stand out when i look back at these defining years of my life..
getting lost the first day in college....trying to find the LIFE SCIENCE DEPT(LSD).....
finally finding it ..only to get a near coronary when i saw the dinosaur fossil guarding the entrance..well,confession time guys..i thought it was a dinosaur till recently i learnt it was a camel fossil. :P

getting to know you guys...and let me tell you it was an all new experience ..an all girls batch...
after we threw an unsuspecting guy as a bio chem sacrifice....am still waiting for the priest who used to stay at AHMEDABAD station to take admission.....
yes..we all had conveniently thought an all female batch was going to guarantee two peaceful years..
boy oh boy..were we in for a surprise.....
the lovely...cat fights we had..meowwww..my claws still tingle.....:D

but as we cats have 9 lives....we managed to hold on and made some happy memories along the way....
i shall never forget the early mornings..times when half of us haven't even finished our quota of yawning..we would be screwing up the autoclave filled with a feast for microorganisms...
i will never forget the fast paced packing session...trying to outrun anyone..for the autoclave,the stinking cleanup session when we actually saw many monsters who would have taken over the world being flushed down the drain...the world should thank us for saving it..we "Z power puff girls"
nor shall i ever forget the autoclave and poor JUJU always bakra for screwing the clamps tight...
i will not forget shooing away Thomas's crow,nor the fights we had with him....
and the "loot"session....guys..i think we may have a lawsuit filed against us if i elaborate here..so i leave it at that...

the stolen looks over teacher's head when we rarely had lectures..me trying to stifle yawns,JUJU having bladder trouble,NATU trying to stay awake,SAM not knowing where to look,SAILI ever the ideal student,MITS AND AARTI poking each other(guys,you changed us,...),FATU trying to out talk the teacher with questions,ESHRAT looking at everyone's faces...
the almost everyday "bashing"sessions we experienced from teachers who did not know what to do with us..
The eating stuff in lab,the ac sessions in the laminar,the discussions over glassware and experiments which made us feel like top class executives in MULTINATIONALS,the pizza eating session and mumbai darshan with posing stances,the chapel and stairs photo sessions,running across mumbai for attending seminars,falling asleep in them,taking videos of each others..eerr ..i guess..again we may end up in jail..so let us leave it at that...
we developed our own scientific lingo for deaf and mute people....(check the picture above..someone give us a Nobel prize for this noble work!!!)

...i will never forget these times...

i have had my fair shares of bunking,sleeping over books in the library where the amazing gargoyle sculptures stare at us,xeroxing my inheritance away....
all along this way...somewhere,i fell in love with all this.....

SAM....we go back a long way....much longer than the daily walks to CST station and back,..we will go a Long way too..(thanks to MITS AND AARTI...:P)

JUJU..we bled you a lot for our own purposes..(bled you off more than blood..heehee)..your attitude in life rocks...keep clicking photos..

NATU..till i met you i used to think i am the only person in the world who still uses onomatopoeia(sound effects)while talking..you surpass me,lady...hail MASTER OF SOUND EFFECTS!!!

AARTI &MITS..(i don't have the heart to separate you guys here too)...maybe we never saw eye to eye on many issues..but we had our fair share of laughs and scandal during intern time..
remember handsome doctors,running home early and keeping the ACTREC bus waiting....

SAILI: "the sweetest thing" please dont take so much tension,the world needs more people like you.

ESHRAT AND FATIMA....though generally quiet and reserved..ESHRAT..we all had our funtimes...

FATIMA..do you still get nightmares about our conversation of spiking your drink?:P

these two years taught me self reliance...but as paradoxical it sounds...you guys together taught me it...not by not doing anything..heehe..but by pitching in and teaching each other about team work......

i take back a treasure of memories as we finally shed our college mindset and enter the real world....i will always cherish them ,especially at those times,when the world seems lacking in colours..these memories shall always be my spare colours....

thank you....
