“So this is all what it boils down to, isn’t it?”, said to us the universally favourite senior of ours.
I am in absolutely no condition to critique his statement, muddled in my own thoughts, I don’t know what to feel. I just know that I don’t want to leave the place I’m in.
Walking down the memory lane, I know that I am a different person today. Two years back, when we all came here, we wanted exactly what we have right now, those cushy jobs, a family to talk our hearts out to more than we would to our real ones.
And now, when all of that is done and we have a whole lifetime lived in these two years here, we want more.
I don’t know the words to capture a heart so full. I’m awfully sentimental right now because its hard to let go of all meaningful things that have happened here. A series of firsts – a walk down the ramp, a speech on the stage, infinite presentations, a visit to my dream city and two amazing months of internship, the love and the friends found. How can it all vanish in one go?
I cannot say goodbye to those whom I have grown to love, for the memories we have made will last a lifetime, and will never know a goodbye.
Adieu, IIM Ranchi. You’ll always be awfully special to our hearts.
