The Final Dedication

Wrote this poem a day before I left Pune....
Read it out to THE GANG :)
Now it's posted here for everyone to read.. as a dedication to the best of the many wonderful people I have known...........

Kya bhooloon kya yaad karoon
About the people sitting in this room
My friends, my crime partners, my beloved gang
We are the ones who caused the crash, boom, bang!
I want to recount all the memories
Which will again and again be told as stories.
I wanna spend the night laughing at all the jokes again,
Wanna take a walk with you all down the memory lane.
There are a zillion special moments I can clearly recall,
Those that were special to me and you all.
I'm gonna miss each one of you, u all are unique in your own way,
There is too much in my heart, but there are not enough words to say.
Lemme say out some incidents,which we can laugh about,
Cuz by the time the night is over, we'll all be in tears, without doubt.
Let's now start the narration,
About the 12 craziest women in god's creation.
Who can forget the time when DV puked at the station,
The time when we figured out that GOBI is from the chinese nation.
The time when MOLLY cried abt her all clear result and almost fell down the stairs,
The times when SHIKHA sat wondering when god will answer her prayers.
The times when ESHA has danced her signature dance step,
The times when ROHINI has been all stressed out during exam prep.
The times when TEEHIJ did her unique "sharmaana",
The times when KRITI wore her torn clothes, chaahe kuchh bhi kahe zamaana.
The times when CHHAVI slept off during lectures,
The times when PRACHI clicked a million of her own pictures.
The times when ANSHU made all the khana, although the effort was claimed to be joint
The times when MANDY took a deep breath and tried to make a point.
These are not even an iota of the memory collection.
But I did have a tough time making the selection.
Cuz every moment seems special, every memory to be cherished,
Dunno how and why, but I am glad this friendship flourished.

Molly ki gappein, Dv ka rona,
Rohini ki dumbness, Gobi ka sona.
Mandy ke explanations, Kriti ke kapde,
Teehij ka slowly bolna, Shikha ke lafde.
Anshu ke perfect write ups, Esha ke don-type looks,
Chhavi ki funny poems, Prachi ke jokes.

Those endless hours and hours of talking,
Times when we were serious, times we could not stop laughing.
Those hours of discussions,
Those hours of stupid joke sessions.

Yaad aayengi humein yeh sab baatein, yeh saare pal.
Bas kal tak ki baat hai, fir apni apni raah pe sab jaayenge nikal.
Par kuchh bhi ho jaaye, yeh dosti hum nahi todenge,
Chale jaayein hum kaheen bhi, tera saath na chhodenge.

In making my engineering life tolerable, you guys had a huge role to play,
I wanna thank you all for so much!, I dont even know wat to say.

Kaise reh paayenge in jokes ki bina, har din yaad karenge in baaton ko...
Bas yahi kehna hai.... kya bhooloon kya yaad karoon un haseen yaadon ko...

O lecture-rhymer, you did inspire,
For its your blogs, that I most admire..
Your recent posting means you didnt retire,
For the wake-up call, a rip-off blog, did you require? :P

I was going to inform you,
afraid that you might sue..
Please keep reading though,
I'll take it as a compliment that you choose to bestow!

hey esha, yeah i know what the feelings that day were... hehe... i was there too..LOL...

yeah mixed feelings... feeling happy for everyone.. that everyone was gonna be on their own now and work/study further..achieve higher goals.. and feeling sad.. that we'll not be on our own TOGETHER... we'll be miles apart...
all i hope is... although we are miles apart our hearts stay close.. and this circle of friends doesn't get lost somewhere in time as the years progress...

i am in an emotional mood today.. dunno why.. but it's just one of those days when i felt like visiting my blog myself.. :)
