Culling Memories

As I woke up today I realized a month from now I’ll be a graduate. Just a month and my college life will come to an end. I had never thought that I’ll start loving this place as I had loved my school. Today I had the same feelings, I had 4 years back. The fear of leaving the college and the hostel is same as it was 4 years back.
The place has provided me with a huge collage of memories. Memories which will never fade away like our jeans. Memories that conglomerate to brim me up with emotions…
Memories of my bestest pals… Memories of the first day in college… Memories of conflicts with the administration… Memories of putting up at ramprastha… Memories of the punctured bus… Memories of pangas with seniors... Memories of raging juniors… Memories of protecting the dear ones… Memories of fighting with each other over a bar of chocolate... Memories of crushes... Memories of teasing others... Memories of laughing without any reason… Memories of attending classes… Memories of disturbing others in class… Memories of tuck and coffee shops… Memories of the cafeteria... Memories of trips to faculty room for marks… Memories of the hostel terrace… Memories of straying in atrium… Memories of exam times... Memories of gossiping all night… Memories of bunking classes for movies… Memories of breaking rules... Memories of photograph sessions... Memories of playing songs on full volume… Memories of dare sessions... Memories of leg pulling sessions... Memories of preparation for friend’s b’day party... Memories of placement activities... Memories of unsaid words…
Memories of almost every minute spent in this place fill my heart up. Now I crave to stay forever… I really want to. I asked the time to stop. I try to hold it, but the ticking goes on. I took the cells out of my watch, but even this didn’t help. Time’s slipping out. I wish I could hold it. Sun becomes moon and then again moon gets transformed into sun. I wish I had the power to take some leave from time, but time accepts no leave application. It doesn’t even go on a break. It keeps moving and in just a few days it’ll ask us to vacate this beautiful place. In a few days I’ll see the end of another beautiful chapter…
