Just after we were done with the long & tiresome Engineering Admission procedure, there came a day, the first day of our professional degree course, that’s ENGINEERING.
Yes, it’s not just a graduation course, it’s a lifetime experience. Feared about the course (b’coz of rumors & the fear-factor this course has), nervous of the new environment, but at the same time excited about this new chapter of life, we all entered our College.
Getting used to the course, the atmosphere is just not possible without F. R. I. E. N. D. S. Whether you find them or they find you, that doesn’t matters, what matters is, you meet somehow. And then whatever happens is a delightful journey which covers almost all the emotions a human perceives (Yes, ALL 😛 ) in his lifetime.
Like every other guy, I made few friends as well. Most of the words shared between friends while the college hours are obviously related to college. Studying Engineering, we don’t actually get much time to share things other than the college stuff. The best solution or the best way to get close to close friends is to go on an outing. We don’t actually get a huge vacation to celebrate & this is why whatever we wanna plan, we’ve to plan real quick.
I (Laal), Swapnil (Swap), Harsh (Sanga), Viral (Virus), Shardul (Sheru) & Archit (Dhanno) did manage to plan a vacation trip & execute it. By the way, the nicknames aren’t constant, they do keep changing 🙂
Since new friends do not travel too far, we planned of Matheran (Matheran is a tiny hill station near Mumbai) for this initial time. Archit’s agreement to this trip was kind of shocking, since he never showed any interest in such outings before.
From the journey in the toy train to the masti in Matheran to the dumb charades just before the departure, every moment is priceless. Yes, someone has very rightly said, “Thoda door jaane se apne paas aa jaate hain“.
We planned, We played,
Every emotion was portrayed.
We shared, We cared,
We were woven into one thread.
We quarreled, we fought,
We’ll even enjoy this we never thought.
As this was just the beginning, it started on a lighter note. We had many more in the coming years, just have an eye on this section to have a glimpse of our extreme action in Lonavala, Saputara, Kalsubai & still counting.
