This one blog defies the title "discovering life" in a way.Its not a generalised article and yet not a completely personal article.Its something I wrote for the college magazine but a bit late.So its more formal than i wnat my blogs to be genarally but Ido want to write something about college life and its too difficult to give a detailed account...too many memories to embed.So here my college friends.....

“And yet not a dream, but a mighty reality-a glimpse of the higher life, the broader possibilities of humanity, which is granted to the man who, amid the rush and roar of living, pauses four short years to learn what living means”

This seems to sum up all that college represents to me. It’s a transition phase, a phase when we haven’t fully crossed childhood and still on the verge of embarking the world of adults. A transition made so much easier and pleasant by MSIT amid the comfort of its warm red-brick structure. I remember how many of my friends used to complain about the building seeming half-built but I always loved the way it looked, red brick building in the canopy of beautiful greenery.

!st year brought about with it, a series of changes, making me realize that life would never be the same again .It also gave a sense of independence-from choosing what to wear each day, to boarding buses, to going to the Freshers’ party- I knew college was DIFFERENT from school. Slowly the changes started to settle in. The laughter, the yawns, the moans and groans with same people everyday brought friends together- friends worth keeping for a lifetime. Together we had canteen discussions, bus discussions, together we bunked, together we slogged, together we went to District Centre- a favourite haunt of all MSITians and together we went participating in fests and of course not to forget-the Ed board meetings.

Finally when placements started, I saw how vividly college had bonded people from different grounds together. The joys and sorrows in placement processes can never be forgotten. These 4 years have helped so much in the overall growth.
Ultimately credit goes to MSIT for giving all a solid ground to stand on after college. Many careers have been made here but more importantly, it’s equipped us to go into the adult world that now beckons us.

During this last year most people have been busy in various entrance exams and college has not seemed the same with half classes empty. But it does make me realize the value of these beautiful memories created over the span of 4 years .Ultimately we take the best of each phase forward for me that includes all the lessons learned here –about life and of course my friends-some there since the start and some of us got to know each other so late that I wonder why we waited so long. But each is a treasure worth keeping. Thanx MSIT for such glorious memories and for making this journey so beautiful and experiences so enriching.
