End of a chapter

For four years now, I have been proudly calling myself a student of JU, Jadavpur University. For four years, my identity has been “Arnab Gupta, ME Dept, JU”. Well, that chapter of my life has all but come to an end.

This week, we appeared for our final Grand Vivas, to mark the completion of our Engineering Degree Course. The official marksheets, and Degree Certificates are some months away, but for all practical puposes, we are done with JU.

It’s a mixed feeling, that… One the one hand there is the inevitable relief, the thrill of being able to write ‘B.E.’ after my name. That is all that these four years were about, and yes, we have all made it…

But on the other, there is this great sorrow, an empty feeling, to just think that we will no longer be at JU. The JU campus almost becomes a second home for its members, and it is like leaving home… We are elated with our accomplishments, we are looking behind with pride and forward with hope and determination, but in the middle lies the present, full of nostalgia and feeling and those wonderful moments that we have been through together…

Thank you JU, for giving us all that you have; thank you, for making me what I am today.

  1. wow, you are a cynic, Insiya… πŸ™‚

    No, you don’t have to say it if you don’t feel it… at least with me, that is… πŸ˜‰

  2. No, no, I really will miss you. After you are gone to that Blacksmith place of yours (or was it Blackshire?), and face the threat of being gunned down, I shall miss you.
