"A" Class Apart

The sun shone high; bright was the noon
60 new faces lit up like a full moon
Singles and couples; buddies and brothers- It went all so soon
The date I remember was 16th of June

Red and pink; Yellow and blue
There was a multitude of colour- brand new
Fresh faces, enigmatic eyes, scintillating smile
Everyone seemed so jocund and sublime

From Punjab to Kerala; Assam to Maharashtra
Bongs and Marus ; Punjabis and Mallus
All got woven into a common thread
Of love, friendship and shared interests

The birthday kicks; the party highs
The gossip kings and the innumerable controversies
The movies, the night outs and Counter-Strikes
Each time I think about them, my heartbeat spikes

From roomies to friends; pals to buddies
People found not just love but brothers and sisters
Everyone, while they missed their home
Found a family so close to their soul

Energy ran from the classroom to the food courts
From hostel to the grounds
Books, Music, dance and drama
All forming a part of our Nostalgia

The carnival which begun with high hopes
Moving across the ups and downs; crests and troughs
Expectations were belied, hopes were in shambles
But each of us just said, “ Aaal izzz Welll(s)

As I look back on the roads we traversed
The paths and milestones we covered
Resplendence was redefined; Dedication defined
Perspicacity personified and Majesty magnified

Time Flies as we try reaching the skies
And as an ERA comes to an and
I just don’t wish to move on and part
For this is our very own, “PG A ---A CLASS APART”

--Sriram
