The penultimate round

After the horrific fourth sem,it was a move on to a new sem with a lot of aspirations.For our relief, our teachers told us fifth sem wont bug as much as fourth did. So it was party time,we would sit in classes for the sake of attendance and class seemed more like a club. It was then we had an idea of a class trip and there was no hesitation from any of the classmates.But as in all cases are ,authorities seemed to be the villain of the script, we needed teachers with us and none was ready to come with us.I still remember having run behind each and every teacher I could see around and it was more like playing some nursery game.Finally somehow we got two teachers ready to accompany us after a long struggle.Then we had the hurdle of getting approval and with lot of pain and struggle that was done too.

We had a four nights and three days trip.It was really worth a journey,it was more about getting to know each other.The bonds between us grew harder and thicker and we cheered and sang in rain and sunshine,those moments are always treasured and the only moment when we were sad was on that early morning when the journey in skies ended up at the gates of LBS.Then again there was a rush of exams,sessionals in between ,our cultural fest RHYTHM and again back to exams and assignments.Fifth sem just passed off swiftly unnoticed probably coz it was the most enjoyed period of our lives. Then to sixth sem,we were getting deeper into the thick and thin of our trade and the sem was just passing away uneventful.Then all of a sudden on March 10,there was a recruitment drive at Cochin and that triggered the idea of getting placed in everyone's minds.For the first time in last three years,I could see me n my friends working for a purpose,many got through to jobs and many didnt,but everyone did have the will n desire to get through.

Soon we were getting close to the end of another semester,but this time it was unnoticed coz of the Placement Fever.But again we finished three big years in the college an never knew we were at the twilight.For the first time ,we felt we were becoming nostalgic or too emotional at times.The affinity was getting stronger when the inevitable separation seemed somewhere around the corner.But again we kept those thoughts aside and marched from the penultimate round to the final round.It was really getting serious and the game was on.
