Now that Fest season is over, it’s time for Farewell

“They shouldn’t have done this. It was really hectic for us. Think, when you have to choose between SRCC and Hindu, it’s not easy” said my senior who was not so happy over the clash that happened within two of the big fests this season. He was confused whether he was angry at the organizers or sad because it was his last fest season. He did not seem so comfortable to discuss the fact now that the fest season was over, the next happening thing was his ‘Farewell’.

As fest season drew its curtains with lots of competitions, DJ Nights and celebrity performances, now students are busy with raking up their assignments, internals and course work, till this cycle is broken by the next big event hits the campus i.e- farewell. As the fool’s day gets over, juniors in department, societies will get busy with meetings and work towards giving a good farewell to their seniors. Admissions, elections, semester exams, fests, farewell and semester exams, these events have created a cycle in the cultural life of the university. Sadly, while the fest season is filled with joy, the farewell season which follows would see lot of swollen eyes filled with tears.

Sometimes with cards, sometimes with lighted photo frames- juniors use different ways to organise farewell so that their seniors have the best experience. Since the seniors have spent years in this same college, this is one of the memories that they are going to carry with them for life hence juniors don’t miss this opportunity to give their best in making the farewell function unique.

“I like these small lights around the frame. They are so adorable”, I remember these words said during a visit to Rajiv Chowk by the senior who seemed confused in the earlier part of this article. This makes me realise that I have to visit Rajiv Chowk to buy his farewell gift. As I make a note, and now that you have finished reading this article go ahead and tag your juniors who are going to give you a farewell or seniors whom you are going to give a farewell in the comments section. And don’t forget to share your farewell ideas and demands in the same.
