I've canceled out 6 beginnings and I still don't have words to write this post....
The last 4 years was a pleasant journey... I've learnt so much. I've met people who have changed the way I act, the way I think and the way I am. PICT is probably the best thing that happened to me.
I've seen people wasting their life in vella and others wasting their life in over-dedication... I've met the breed of "politicians" and others so good at heart, that you are simply amazed... people who crib about "what they are doing here" and others who still manage to find time to do what they like... people who have been ignored all their lives, yet bear that radiant smile!... people who inspite of all the mockery hurled at them, still have that zest to learn, still keep trying.... people whose silence you can hear louder than anything else!...
This place is NOT a factory of bookish-geeks. I've seen people doing so many different things that sometimes I find myself wondering - where to am I leading myself.
But its not just about the students... without our project guide, BE would have been just another year... now thankfully, I know what I want to do. No one could have done it better than him. Someday, I'd like to be him.
However depressing, frustrating these past few months were, in hindsight, this was the best period of my life and I want to live it all over again. Probably I can live it better this time.
Finally, I've had friends that I absolutely adore!.... its not just about the friendship but what kind of a person they are!... I've never felt so much of a positive energy around me. Someday, i'd like to be them.
And finally as I come to my senses, I realize that I set out to write about how the project era has affected me, but, ended up writing this. Anyways, I really adore all of you guys. I had the best time over here, and am pretty sure this is NOT the end.... it can't be...
