After 12 years of being under shade of those beloved teachers, carrying those heavy bags on tiny shoulders, standing in punishments with hands raised up in the air for reasons like not wearing uniform properly or not wearing i-cards. Unwillingly getting up early every day from dreamland on mothers call or running madly back home once school got over. Doing homework or getting it done from others, standing quietly in front of teachers and parents in PTM or shouting your throat out at that last bell ring. School life was one roller coaster ride. Soon after that you end up in completely different world ….way too different!.. Yeah, it is the college life…the story of which you heard for so long…
You get to choose what you want to do…no no that doesn’t mean you are completely free, you have assignments ,exams and sometimes special meet between teachers and parents too!..
Dreams are often considered to be wonderlands which arise out of the many aspirations, motivations and that love for beauty. NIIT UNIVERSITY is one such living dream of a person whose smile really makes the world go round…well, at least mine!
With small batches and full on teacher attention it’s difficult to get a proxy for attendance or sleep in class so you either attend the class or you don’t at all, but on the plus side the effort to convince people for mass bunk is reduced! Had my first right here..:). While the ’amazing’ teaching methods of some teachers allows you to use the Wi-Fi facility to fullest. Some classes are absolutely great and lure you to learn even more. Opening mind to many possibilities in the field it makes you wonder..kaunsi chakki ka atta khate the yeh!..Hehe.. It’s a place where the hostel life is ever lively whether it’s the constant banging of doors to wake up for early lectures, the smell of noodles that fill the place or constant chatter of many ideas that pop up under the pressure on time submission of assignments. It’s a place where you get to hear from some of the greatest minds in guest lectures, about the many possibilities that exist, about how clashes of ideas, that search for perfection and desire for goodwill gave birth to amazing inventions…and yet if sometimes you don’t understand a word they say you could still appreciate the effort and hard work that goes in it.
College time is one when you make friends, you make career, you get complete freedom from almost all bondage. What can be better than having it here, so that afterwards you can smile and think of the time you spend lying down with your friends under sun in winters, sharing bonfires, singing in moonlight, dancing with all weird moves just for sake of enjoyment, camping in valley right within the university, having those long pleasant morning and night walks with them to learn lessons and play around. Memories of not only the teachers you didn’t like because of some ‘unusual reasons’ but the ones who motivated you by setting examples, nutured your mind with many off class talks, invited you to home for dinner, looked at you with amazement, affection and excitement! How you conquered the infamous Kali pahari to get to see the most amazing sunrise and almost had your heart out running in marathon, provided you have stamina like me..Hehe. Who knows, if you are ready to learn such memories can fill several gigabytes or maybe terabytes!
