But, is it nothing to know when you are dying, when you are about to take leave of this world, of its joys and sorrows, when the past of your life is unfurled before you, when eternity opens wide its portals, is it nothing to know at that last awful,supreme moment of your lives, that you have not lived in vain, that you have lived for the benefit of others, that you have lived to help in the cause of your country's regeneration?

Tribute..

The long awaited/anticipated end days of college life is finally at the doorstep.. Am i happy about it? I'm not quite sure..but definitely not glum.. I never loved my college..alright,there was a lull of attachment,but not a long-lasting one..just a deceiving impulse.. This was not where i wanted myself to end up in..but,i acquiesce Newton's laws, 'every action has an equal and opposite reaction'.. After all Shakespeare was not all wrong when he told,"Men at sometimes are the masters of their fate".. Hence i claim the culpability of my destiny..

There are some but for whom i wouldn't have got through the hell effortlessly.. I would never have remained cheerful but for them..

Shini,my soul mate..the one who understands me with my nuances and silence..who listens my every rantings..Therez been more than a kinship with her which is adored even by her hubby(don't be surprised,she's married! :D).. love her loads.. :)

Sanam,.there's no shini and g3 without sanam..the trio in the class.. Not that i love her any less than shini,but sanam's is a diff relationship..not one of understanding and supporting..but of a companionship..not one of silence and understanding..but of shouts and laughters... ;)

Rameez,.my best friend ever..but for this guy,no one else accepts me the way i am..without prejudices or judgments..the one who's always supported me as best as he can..not that we never fought..but either of us was always ready to give up and reconcile..not that we never had misunderstandings,but just as the word says,it always ended in a better understanding.. :)

Akhil,.my younger bro(or as he says,by 3 days! :D)..not that we had been friends all the 4yrs..but a year..but best of all the relations are not sour grapes that take long to become sweet wine..the Illuminati,who keeps enlightening me in troubles..every time i run into mire,he's been there to pull me out of it.. :D

Jishin,.someone,who has not been the usual friend who helps,supports or anything of the sort..not the one who shares hang-outs with you..but the kind of sisterly affection i have from her is just too warm..the one who keeps me motivating saying i still have loads of my potential rusting(how lame!!)..the one who always comes up with tensions for me to give solace.. ;)

Pratap,.my first ever friend in the college..been quite a very very good friend since the very beginning.."friendship at first talk" or something of the like..he's the one with whom i fight at least once every year,keep out of contact for say 1 month or so just for a kick-ass high-five and cheers after that..

"___",.(name left obscure due to security reasons :D)..once my closest friend..sometimes more than a mere friend,a teacher,a brother,a guardian..who later sabotaged my friendship just coz his gf doubted our relation and issued a memorandum to end the relation,despite the 7 inch height diff bet us,me being taller.. :D..the most traumatic incident in my experiences with friends..

But for these people,my life would never have been this wonderful.. But for them i would still have been the old recluse who hated every monday for the same reason as tom sawyer..

Love you guys a lot... :)
