The “Grown Up” Campus
Well I am back to blogging (not so certain tough), and while I was out of it, I observed my campus closely. How she was then, and how she is now! She has grown up, and developed in all the dimensions. Look out the irony here, the campus is being assumed to have life, she was born a year before I became a part of her. And now when she is four plus , she has already entered the teenage group. She has become bolder, careless, fun filled, addicted to unhealthy habits, independent and obviously she has started feeling the teenage peer pressure, specially the sexual desires !
When she was a baby, she was so cute, so innocent, I liked her. She was calm, quiet, peaceful and beautiful. There were few innocent lovers, love proposals, and so many unconditional friendships were born. Everything was perfect. But unfortunately you can’t be a cute baby forever, you have to grow up, and when you grow up, you give away your innocence.
Now when she’s on the verge of becoming five years old, she has lost her virginity! Lots of cases and gossips float around, “kaun (who) ? kahan (where) ? kab (when) ?” The same question, but with different answers.. ”guest house ke peechey (behind the guest house), Mr Ick and Miss Usy, last night”… “LT ke peechey….guard caught them..” . The point here is not letting you know who all did sex here and when and where and how ! I am just expressing that she has grown up and well she has grown up pretty fast. She don’t even think whether its right or not , to publically display affection !
Very few used to fag then. If someone get to know that a boy fags, it was a big deal..”wo cigarette pita hai (he smokes).hauwww !!”. And the famous Jhopdi (only shop in our campus which sells cigarette) was a 'no students land' back then. Students looked down upon teachers who visited that place. And now, almost 25% of the male students can be seen and heard there.. “ 4 double omelet without bun and one lights” .. “ek double half fry palti maar ke and ek gold flake chota” . Even some of the female, mostly the girlfriends can be seen around!
Really, when you think of then, and when you see now, you feel different. A strange smile or expression comes, as if you knew this was going to come, come so soon. And you are no daddy, so you don’t care if she turns out to be a bitch or a responsible young girl. You know , you have to leave her, you can’t be with her always. Only thing you can do is too watch her, without forgetting that you are also a part of her.
PS: I had one beer today and this is also my last semester with half of my friends.
