3 Idiots, Damini's Take (Part - 2)


Our school practised the policy of "Divide and Rule"... Yes, they shuffled our divisions for our secondary classes but we were of course the students of the same school and we followed our own policy of "United we stand"... This in turn , led to "Divide and Unite..." Sounds strange naaa?? but that is what happened with me. I became Binal's friend. Though I knew her and Urvashi earlier, we did not speak much. Now, as things turned out to be, I also became their friend and we met everyday during our breaks discussing tales of both the class rooms. Everyone had new friends and their old set of friends too.. So, in a sense, our groups started growing with us.....



Then we all joined up the same classes for our SSC and that was one of the best times of my life, spent with my friends. Ours became a group of 5 eventually who always sat together, studied together and partied together... Yes those were the initial years when we started to celebrate birthday parties with friends, going out for dinners, just lazing around in the evening or meeting up for a chat...... Binal's house being at a convenient location was mostly our meeting point.... That age had its own excitement. Solving the problems of Algebra, imitating teachers, having some crushes, gossiping day in and out, keeping secrets, knowing secrets of others..... It kinda seems very childish now.. But in those days, all these things excited us a lot.. n even today just when we come across some phrase which correlates to some of our past stupid joke, it brings a smile on our faces...... A mysterious smile, which makes the other people around wonder "Whats so funny..??"

That was really a time when we knew each other, felt the importance and need of friends , bonded together strenghtening our friendship as well as proving our worth in academics . It is said that "A man's company matters a lot in moulding his character and nature" and I realised it is so true because all of us were best of friends but even competitors when it came to our exams.It was not that we fought for marks but just that we took up everything as a challenge and performed our bests......

Today , when I pass through my school gate and look at the ground I can still spot me Binal, Urvashi and myself chatting on the ground about which teacher scolded whom , what we did in practical labs, why our PE lecs were taken up by our Algebra Professors, discussing our prelim papers and exclaiming "Ohh....Maine socha ye likhu but phir socha galalt hai....!!!", discussing what we would wear for the saree day or our last day in the school, coming to the school to collect our SSC mark sheets which just did not give us the results of our past performance but also directed each one of us towards a future... A future which was till then unforeseen......"


To be continued....
