Sohini and I, to begin with have entertained a myriad of guests in our fungus-clad room - from Bats to pups..we've served them well. Sohini is a good hostess if I may just add.
Placement season has begun.. and our Superguy Shoeb was the first to take the plunge... The look on Anupam Sir's face is unforgettable.. the happiness within our hearts is tough to describe.. Kunal and I almost felt like it was our own placement..
Someone very close to me taught me the most valuable lessons of life... and set me free into my world - with friends like Vrinda, Sahil, Malini, Tambha, Mrin, Priyo, Nadir, Sohini, Harshad... I daresay I have enjoyed myself - from playing more than 3 songs on the guitar... to late night walks... I did it all.. And finally I know my way around Pune City.
Last night was perhaps one of the best ones I have spent at Lavale... It all began post dinner... over a cup of coffee.. With Sritama imitating half the world leaving us in splits, we had quite a time away from the rest of the symbi population. It felt like it was just our space! Amidst the cracks, we discovered too many things way back from first sem.. for example:
Sritama: Oh I remember, I had once written a love note to Harshad and signed it, "from Malini"
To that: Malini :
Harshad: That was YOUU?????
So with such conversations troubling the hell out of a dedicated Priyo, she decided to pull away and along went Shruti, Sritama, and Malini - to do an assignment. Sheesh. Harshad, Vrinda and I on the other hand decided to walk it to the edit suite and watch some movies.. ahemm... we did see quite a lot I should say. We walked back to the hostel only to watch Requiem for a Dream.. at 2 in the morning its a perfect treat. It didn't end there... I found myself singing with Mrin and Dala to the tunes of "Yaaron Dosti.." while Nicole gave us the music on the synth... And when the world decided to sleep... Tambha and I chatted away until 4am... So yeah.. it was quite a busy night. Uninteresting post for most.. but this one is just for the record!! Meanwhile, Lavale-ness continues with people laughing, crying, gossiping, working, pretending to work, in search of a little random fling, breaking hearts, joining hearts... It all together forms Life.
P.S: My day had begun with Susan's message which went like:
"In the noisy confusion of Life, keep peace within your heart. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, its still a beautiful life" - Max Ehrmann, Desiderata
P.P.S: coming soon - the video!!
