I’m an engineering undergraduate student. The day I enrolled for this course is the day everything changed for me. I was independent since childhood as both my parents were working. I took care of myself pretty well until then. But all that time, I lived in a bubble of protection, a place I knew like the back of my hand, with people whom I had known my entire life. That fateful day, on which I decided to chase the dream of being an engineer, I had involuntary decided to leave everything I held dear to me back. Little did I know, a new family was waiting for me.
The transition wasn’t easy. The new place, new people and the new ambiance were very educational. And the journey has been great, with its fair share of ups and downs. It has been almost four years since that day. The life I have here now is much better than what I had then. It’s better than what I would have had, if I had stayed back there. At least that is what I want to believe. All the experiences over the years have taught me more than my classes or my previous life ever did. And I have met people; some rather unexpectedly, who have made me a better person, and who will be there in my life, forever. I’ve cried with these people, laughed with them, fought with them and most of all, dreamed with them. I’ve learnt a lot about myself, the world and life. They were the best teachers I could ever wish for. Now when I look back, I realize that my father might have registered me for this course, but I had enrolled myself for the best class of my life. And let me tell you, this is a class I will never regret joining. A class that will stay with me, always.
