Sweet smell of butter filling the surroundings, sound of bullets in the background along with the pops of popcorn, coffee sizzling and the sweet aroma filling the room, such is the environment in A 709 of Symbiosis Infotech Campus at 1 AM.
Just to simplify all the above we had Public Enemy running on a 20 inch LCD along with some office apps running on the Mini*, popcorn being popped for the late night movie in Gajju’s innovative and multipurpose kettle, along with sizzling hot coffee and butter bite cookies.
The life in A 709 starts after 12 AM when we return after wasting out whole day in classes or workshops along with a couple of utilized hours in gym and swimming pool. If it hadn’t been for these two hours we would have been dead. Someone truly called this place home away from home [I would have given the due credit but I’m sorry that I forgot the name of the gentleman].
As it seem from the above text that we are so busy studying but it’s not at all that way. More than half of our classes get cancelled, presentations postponed and evaluations delayed. We get a hell lot of time to enjoy but only a few smart people are aware of the ways to make the most of these hours. Whether it’s a quick game of Table Tennis, Basketball, Volley Ball, a mini Cricket match or an hour’s sneak peek into the gym or the swimming pool.
The few of us who have always thought of this place as a home really feel like at home on a long vacation. There are no worries about getting up late for the classes or missing an evaluation or two. Everything is manageable because we are management students and at least this much is expected from us. Those who thought that we are wasting our parents’ hard earned money are morons because they are wasting their time thinking about us while we have fun, we who don’t matter to them in any way.
