Nostalgic Final Sem

The following is the thought that crossed my mind while I was returning from Chennai after Saarang'09."It was when I was sitting at the wrong end of a train compartment, watching the world speeding past in front of me, that I realised I wanted to put my hands out, pull myself back through time and relive those few days that were undoubtedly the best days of my life. Thanks in tonnes to Johnu, GT and the dog that followed him, Ashwanth, Shilton, Sreehari, Sandeep, Mammen, Gayathri, Parvathy and Neethi for helping me have a great time, for making me laugh till I could no longer breathe, for making me enjoy myself in a way I never have in my whole life."

This final semester in NIT Calicut has been good to me. New Year's drive to the beach, Trip to Chembra Peak, Trip to Kunchan's Home, Saarang Trip, Trip to Bangalore for Aero India Show, each trip bearing moments that took my breath away. I just read George Carline's message which concluded with the quote, "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away". If that's true, I have lived more in the last 3 months than I ever have in the 21 years preceding it.

And that's just the trips beyond NIT Calicut. The events that were organised here, the responsibilities I had - Ragam'09, New Year Celebrations, Council Inaguration, working as the deputy Speaker of SAC - the amount I was able to enjoy, the extent to which through the events and otherwise I was able to bond with people around me, make many new friends, strengthen old friendships; these are memories, memories I cherish, memories I value, and thus they will remain etched away in an easily accessible portion of my brain for me to access fast and go down the memory lane again and again.
