It’s scary to think about how in 4 months, we all will be done with our GMC, our graduation, our college life.
This thought is sinking one sand grain at a time unto my thick Indian skull. And everytime I pass by this unwanted guest of a thought, it scares me.
You ask what? I don’t know. May be it is scary that I will be leaving home again, and will live among strange new people.
May be it is scary that I will be moving out of hostel, the friends, the canteen, the lecture halls, the terrace.
May be it is scary that I have to outgrow my belonging which I have been since 6 years.
6 years is sure enough to make a grown up man cry while bading good byes to your mates, your college life.
May be it is scary that I have to be with new people, live in a new place, work in a new setup, eat at new resto, it’s intimidating that I have to leave all my familiarities that have gathered all these years.
May be it is scary to pop out of the safe confinements of this campus.
Facing ones fear is a part of that shitty adulting right. So let’s face it.
Yes, my life here in college is done. Now I have to unfurl my wings again and fly to a new oasis.
And it’s okay to be scared my amigo.
If anything college life has taught me is, ‘Life goes on.’
All that matters from here now, to be here in the moment, buckle up the seatbelt, and enjoy the ride, dil se.
P.S. Do listen to the beautifully apt song ‘Udd ja Parindey’ from soulful Jubin Nautiyal, composed by talented Mithoon, it will hit you on different level, trust me.
Yours Only, Dinesh Raja, A proud GMCite.
