College was a lot more than it promised. Taking back a tonne of awesome memories the highlight of it being my F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” It is more fun to talk to someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?” (Well not my line ;) )
Introducing the sheer variety of people with whom I did LIVE my college life, without whom I probably can’t imagine having completed my degree. All with different characteristics, backgrounds, ideas, dreams and tastes united by just one word of friends, we the Special 6. We have learnt and re-learnt a lot together. As said Friendship is like a fruit shake; you may not like the fruit individually but when blended you appreciate the sweetness of one, the sourness of the other and the overall flavor in the end.
Well no specific order to place you so just sorted by your names ;)
• Neha – The Machokali
Aamche Maria! The wanderer (lost in thoughts and her phone at times), looks best in a red top she has, the dude as a junior once called her :D, a peeceelicious fan like me, always fired only one in our class, last at assignments and so teachers favourite, her photographs are a treasured collection I have, designs and edits magazines (best at it), our Mafia Lord, School chalein hum, And Forever 21!
• Pooja – Miss Talkative
She can just talk on any topic, anytime. The IMDb of Bollywood, u just can’t beat her at Hindi songs, always hunger struck, ready to roam, people stalk her( I have many screenshots :P :P), the shazam app, forever ready for everything, Kalki hater, reality show fanatic(CP,SMJ), an always inquisitive mind (she may question u on anything :P), explains the best, still owes us her placement treat, gonna miss your talks!
• Prachi – Tupperware Ambassador
Shopaholic( any day, anywhere, anytime) , the fastest at texting, the sweet kid among us, may not understand certain jokes faster, the max I talk with on phone, poor eater, the phone directory, born sweet girl, loves balloons, collection of clothes, hairbands, umbrellas n pouches, nail art every day, cares more about her Tupperware , Belgaum anytime, shifted from BB to Android, not an adrenaline junkie, the Maths tutor (inherited), few forwards you sent only me, everyday new profile pic!
• Rucha – Total Nautanki
The Khalli!! Fun and laughter all time if you surround her, naatak company (part of a drama circle) in real life, can write a comic on her anytime, loses things around everywhere, her phone many times (max. frequency 3 times in 8 hrs), awake at night by sleeping during the day, can lecture well on global warming( taking Aishwarya Rai and Rajnikanth into story), forever smiling, laugh at wrong situations, will never buy clothes if someone else has the same one, self-inventor of many words n theories, (hiiidis-fidis, jhingri-fest,etc), the longest feet n nice teeth, refined taste buds like me, to be shocked if she comes with a text book!
• Tanvi – Godmother
Our teacher (n cleared few subjects only because of her), saviour during vivas, from lab partner to project mate, the quiet n well aware among us, can’t control laughter, we all laughed too much n she got caught once for nonsense I had told them, animal lover (cats n dogs), won’t mind getting bruised by a cat n getting vaccinated by dog bites, the good cook among us, sweet simple, the best singer!
Another 3 idiots which joined us a little later

• Pranav – My expressionless friend, watches Hindi movies with subtitles
• Jayesh – Nature explorer, snakes are his friends, under the hood guy
Some of the few things I just jotted. Times are just awesome when we are together. Lots of stuff we did. The groupism as few called us, bunked and attended together, ate during lectures, funny conversations to our self-defined theories, the 6 on 1 bench at times, group study and assignments always, nonsense we spoke, from Facebook to Whatsapp groups, birthdays we planned, the fun and laughter, Umesh’s Maggi, the natural photographs, the gossip we did, the tour we enjoyed (which got us together), the treats at Ponda restaurants, the boring lectures we attended, Aamchi Swift, Z – Marathi, night out, long phone calls, the messages sent during World Cup, the private waterfall, also my twitter buddies ….. And the list goes on . . .
Enjoyed everyone’s company and created a lot of memories. The bitter fruit of college education is saying good byes to all. I don’t say we are leaving but stepping forward into a new life as we move on further together!
As the climax arrives Thanks everyone! :)
