why does'nt time stop???

12th standard..board exams..the period which is dreaded by almost every teenager..a milestone which signifies the end of the very happy & fun filled schooling..and the entrance into professional studies..which supposedly decide what you will be a couple of years later..an engineering degree in my case.
there used to be so much contemplation and discussion regarding what course to choose..what college to join..rather..what to do!!finally,the month of march arrived with all it's beautiful blossoms..bringing with it "the exams" which apparently shape my destiny!!the month came and went..& to my surprise..i was not even half as wound up as i thought i need to be..my exams went fine & i got into BITS,Pilani...
now,this is what i call a true spot in the middle of nowhere!!you can't reach pilani without a throbbing headache..why??thanks to the bumpy roads & the not so comfy buses..anyways i landed here..a look around the campus revealed the clock tower,lush roadsides(stark contrast to the scenery outside),ancient buildings,pigeon hole sized hostel rooms & the very beautiful saraswati temple..think of being all on your own!!i was so excited!!i checked into my room..i thanked god..rather birlaji,the girls' hostels were better..i was to share my room with another girl..who finally turned up after two full days..after her parents left.
soon,the inroduction sessions began as i tried to make as many new friends as possible..of course the classes began the very next day..we started having those late nite sessions talking about every possible thing under the sun..laughing over anything..getting famialiarized with the bitsian slangs..!!later..there were these tales...the scores,the new clothes,the eat outs,the innumerable crushes,the birthdays,the movies,the books,the gossips,the classes...
everyone seemed to be trying to absorb everything..i made lots of friends in the first few months..thanx to the gift of gab!!well, the academics part of this place..i dont want to mention!!very rigid & taxing..but yeah,i never actually took it serious enough to affect me adversely!!so...lite!!chill!!

there was a point of time when i wanted to run away from this haven..could have given anything to be back at home..but in this span of two years..i've learnt so much..had so much fun..this place has given me beyond whatever i could ask for..taught me to live..
it's terrifying to think of being thrown into a world which is so full of deceit,hatred,envy,gloom...at the end of my life in this place..which has been so comforting,so giving...

i dont want to go..please..
oh seconds..stop ticking..
hours..stop passing...
years..stop flying...please...

A marvellous post...I felt as if I was seeing the BITS Campus through your eyes...The start of hostel life's always a memorable occassion for anybody.

I have too many BITSian friends actually, and so I'm quite familiar with your "BITSian slangs"...ob, guss, lite, senti, ANC, centli, refli,kuka...the list could go on...!

From aurindam's comment it seems you are in the first year. So all the best for your future. Keep writing such nice nostalgic posts.
