Cheers of Hostel lifeFor those of you who had an opportunity to stay in the hostel during their college days must have relished the enjoyment of hostel life with friends and packed the memories in a box.
I want to unbox these memories and try to bring a smile on your face. Here are some trailers of the hostel life.
Getting emotional was called getting "Senti".
Giving advice to other friends was called giving "Funda".
Giving false attendance in class for the friend who was absent was called giving "Proxy".
Students used to complain about hostel mess food and badly missed home food. Sunday evening was the time when mess would be closed and friend circle would happily eat outside at their favorite restaurants. Sunday morning lunch at mess was much awaited as it would have a special menu.
People used to become homesick at hostel and hostel sick at home.
During exams, people used to do a night out for study and venture out in the middle of the night to have tea/coffee and bread butter.
Sometimes going for a movie just before the exam to ward off stress and at times going for a movie after the exams when stress-free. Studying at night and sleeping during the day was a common trend.
Few mischief makers used to disturb other people in studies after completing their own studies.
Standing at the movie ticket counter's students queue with college Id cards in hand to get concessional tickets was common.
Going out with friends in evening to have tea/juice and snacks was the enjoyable part. Visiting the nearby tourist places within the city and also nearby city was another memorable part.
Winter was the time when many people used to take bath on alternate days and some weekly. The queue outside the bathroom for bathing with knocking of the bathroom door to vacate quickly was common.
Boys used to have a crush on one or the other girls of the college and it was the hot topic of discussion among the friends.
Cracking humourous jokes among friends was a hit.
Juniors used to get Freshers party and final year students used to get the Farewell party.
Its now time to retire my hands from the keyboard now but still thoughts will keep lingering in my mind for some time.
