The entire 8th semester wrapped up in a single whooosh.... the graduation party( we'r done with the B.A, out of the B.A,LL.B!!) and the farewell to seniors( which was surrounded by lots of drama and controversy) were enjoyed at the end of the day.. Another very important agenda of the 8th semester was the RESULT of the dreaded 7th Semester.. but in record breaking incident, we'r at the threshhold of giving our exams and the previous result isn't out yet!! So, now that exams got really near and we finally decided to buy books and xerox the necessary material.. I got some notes photostated for the subject called Business Law since it was a mixture of so many statutes that i deferred buying separate books! Obviously, I did not even touch them until the preparatory leave arrived and that when I discovered something..
As I started reading the notes..something related to government securities..bonds et al.. the impressions from the past came alive.. I read a name, my immediate senior's name( ya its her notes most of us have copied)..but at another place was another name..of a senior of a senior( super senior).. so you see how notes are passed as valuable assets!! Then I stepped upon something written on top of the paper..some senior of mine in his/her utter frustration had written the following couplets- "Chameli ek saloni hai...saloni ladki hai yeh Chameli".. !!!!!
I grinned..and moved on and after a few more pages..I read the following
Card( via speed post)
a pack of fererro rochers
Bouquet of flowers
"Not bad..not bad..wah ji wah"
And I smiled this time..and moved on with my chapter..
Later i discovered a senior's name wit ha prefix to it "Lietenant" ..It dawned on me that he was no more. Felt ackward. How much he would have loved to have that prefix to his name, the pride of writing one's rank next to one's name cannot be imagined.. but he could never realise that dream.
At that I must have taken a long break from my reading.. Business law was no more on my thoughts.. Just some pages..not original..photocopied over these years, given to juniors again and again said little things.. About someone challenging one's grey cells to some nonsense rhymes, and some one appreciating a lover's effort to woo his girl...and about someone who was stuck up in the law course and was dreaming of holding a rifle!!
Notes are not just to read, pass the exam and throw away.. when you give it to your juniors with your share of scribbles and scraps, you're passing a new phase and beginning some one's beginning..
As i bid adieu to the 8th semester.. I made it a point to do my share of scribbling and smiled..

Afternoons- those lazy afternoons when I'd love to just nap but would ultimately slip into slumber
Hug- A group hug..just mom dad and me
Hand shake- a warm soft paw within my palm..just Jojo
Leisure-sitting, reading a book,among hundreds of Larkspurs,Petunias, Sweet Williams and Dahlias..just so March
Crave-One bar..just one; of chocolate..and just mmmm..
Walk-Night, star studded..fallen leaves, and the clittering crickets..
Talk- For hours together..about anything under the sun and time just passes..
Sip- Coffee..and you let your heart out..just like that
Sit- On a bench,where you can aimlessly observe..just watch the crowd thinning or getting denser
Sleep- in mum's lap, no matter how grown up you may have become..just cherish it
Laugh- That hearty laughter and tears rolling out..just so priceless
Sing- Yes, its nice on the stage..but in the bathroom..just you and your echo..
Pride-When I see dad dorning the Olive Green..
Accomplishment- To cheer someone up..
Tears- just thinking of times bygone..happy times
Care- When someone knows just whats on your mind and in your heart..
Love- transcends into unfathomable depths and sky scraping heights..just so undefinable..
Smile- A resplendent something..that just lights up another smile..
And so many more of these finer pleasures of life..that we just don't notice everyday and these moments stay momentarily and pass...

कभी तोह जी भर के बातें करेंगे , कभी तोह बंदिश टूटेगी।
दिन रात का ठिकाना न होगा , इंतज़ार का येही फल्सफ्हा होगा।
गर तुम साथ होगे, इस दुनिया से डर न होगा ।
इस राह पर जो हम चल पड़े , कुछ पल यादों में समेटे ओझल हो चलें ।
आँखें मूँद कर कल को दिल में समां लूँ , आने वाले हर दिन की शुरुवात अभी से सजा लूँ ।
इस छोटी सी ज़िन्दगी के इतने अरमान ,
बस इंतज़ार है की ख़त्म हो चाहत का इम्तिहान।

Love freely; say it; confess it..have no fear,
The fallen autumn leaves are no more there,
Its spring and the greenery spreads everywhere..
A shady tree, a cuppa coffee,
shopping spree, or sumptuous meals..
Every little thing about love, simple and sweet..
price charming and eternal goddess, is how they treat..
Long walks, arm in arm,
'blush'- as he looks into her eyes,
a' rush'- as their heart beats rise..
Its so magical, this thing called 'love',
Its easy and yet so tough...
Sweet poison some call it,
'elixir' of life, people agree..
What could be better, than knowing you're in love?
What could be worse, than staying so far apart?
What could be lovelier than knowing you're cared about?
What could be worse, than waiting to show it, and still...have days to count..
