That 1st

That Yellow and Blue Salwar kameez
The tangling of chunni
Fear of ragging, of kajra re and mujhse shadi karogi,
Fear of canteen
Getting lost in college.

Being friendly
Coming out of the shell,
Those dosas and samosas
Signing up on orkut

Blaring your heart out in front of seniors
And then being told “ab bas”
Those first steps in the canteen
Feeling more cautious than ever,

Studying all the same
Finding life and vigour within you
Being what you truly wanted to be

Letching at the mod gals
Dubai wali, U.S. wali,
Looking at the tall lasses with awe
And then saying “ model shodel, ekhane keno elo”

Kalle kalle movie dekhna
Being enamored by Dhoom2
Dreaming of heroes
Holding first crushes close to heart “no I won’t tell”

Gave the first exam
As honestly as one could
Then passing out and
Thinking one down.


Moving on to the last lap,
And thinking …..
……….
Only one left?
seems like yesterday …

That Blue’n’Yellow Salwaar kameez.

AS much as I hate my college, these days, I'm actually dreading passing out. Although I have 2 more years to suffer.

I think there will be many more occasions in your life where this feeling of nostalgia and not wanting to let go, comes up - leaving your school / college / post grads / leaving family to settle - work elsewhere / first job...

Mads said...

i mean when ppl give awards, they are supposed to put it up...
RIGHT????????? X-( :'( :((

I'll try 2 be truthful said...

@tyro

my punjabi is not that good :(


@Dewdrop

I guess you are right :)



@Mads

and you think no one else awarded me before you.
sorry yaar arrogant mat sochna , but I seriously think that I'm an idiotic and awful blogger and that there are people who are truly much more deserving than me. plz bura mat manna , coz mujhe lagta hai that if i put up awards
it"ll be more like " dekho dekho mujhe bhi mila , ab tum bhi mera paro " .

But I"ll be thankful ever for the awards that you've given.(dil se)

Am really afraid that I would come across as arrogant or 'neka'(gawar gadhi) with this reply.and mujeh pata hai tu karegi but hopefully mind mat kar.

ps: how do u put up the awards ?

vanilla sky said...

@mads
see, mads , I'm a good girl and I've put up the awards:)
Blog looks colourful :)

@truthful
you are technically retarded, say na :p
go the add gadgets section, add picture one by one
