The Farewell season is here and as we bid adieu to the most amazing 3 years of our lives there always comes that one point where we get so engulfed into our memories that we lose track of time. Times change, people change and across those past 3 years you also have changed so much.
As a BMS student our quota of memories is in multi million counts; we have so many emotions attached to the various aspects of our life at college. It was just last week where we had the Alumni of Nagindas Khandwala College and Dnyansadhna College share their best BMS moments: http://bit.ly/1huI5tz
When they shared their memories, the enthusiasm in their words and the joy with which they shared their memories is what truly made the entire article so special. This week similarly we had Paritosh from UPG College and Pradnya from MCC College who made us all at www.bms.co.in extremely nostalgic about our BMS memories.
Pradnya shared with us her super special I.V memories that all BMSites cherish. For her it was the ‘Hawa Mahal’ at Jaipur which is amongst her most memorable moments captured in her heart! Like all BMSites for Pradnya too the entire trip had so many mixed emotions attached.
While some friends were caught violating rules and I am sure dipsomaniacs (read: alcohol lovers) can so understand what I mean when I say ‘rule violations’, the sightseeing and fun moments in the hotel were the other friends formed the other end of the memories spectrum.
For Paritosh the very first special BMS moments comprised of the time he was scanning pretty faces in his class on the first day of college. He shared with us so many of his memories that contributed to making him into what he is today. BMS and his college UPG helped him evolve; from the shy person he was to the fun-loving extrovert he has turned into today.
One another very special memory that Paritosh has is of a girl, he liked a lot and could never tell her about it! I am sure many of the BMS boys can relate completely with this situation. This taught him to value feelings and communicate them before it’s too late and now that you have read this, ‘boys of BMS’ I am sure you might consider going ahead and confessing your feelings before it’s too late!
BMS has a different significance to every person and academics form’s a very small part of it. We all evolved, some opened up and some calmed down. To some it taught how best to communicate and to some it taught the importance of silence, a topper result gave confidence whereas a KT gave ‘failure is the stepping stone to success’ idiom a new meaning!
These three years will always be the ones we shall always cherish and so with Paritosh’s words I conclude “Take a limitation and turn it into an opportunity. Take an opportunity and turn it into an adventure by dreaming BIG!” after all isn’t that what bieng a BMSite is all about?
