Me, Myself and Nishi - VII

As we entered the Wardens office...

familiar things and faces started coming in front of my eyes
There I saw Nishi, Sonali, shirin, rupali and some more girls surrounded with 3-4 Rectors and Warden Kulkarni. The atmosphere seemed tensed. The rectors and Warden were shouting at girls and all of them were listening heads down. It was a complete mess there no one might be knowing what is going on. It was as if after a long time "ooth pahad ke niche aaya" everyone wanted to grab the opportunity and scold them. I could hear only shouts -- you don't follow the hostel rules. Don't you know B'day celebration is banned in hostel after midnight?
Whose b'day was it, come forward. Shirin with a meek face came forward. Everyone had lost hope. One look at them and you know they haven't had food since last night. Who is Nishigandha? Called out the warden? What is this? Don't you have any manners? Why didn't you write the names when the rector asked for? Huh??
Nishi tried to gather all her courage to answer that question.
"Maam, We were not making noise. I agree we celebrated Shirin's b'day but we just cut cake and wished her. We didn't disturb anyone. Even our neighbors' didn't come to know that we were celebrating b'day. They were shock to hear we were caught for celebrations. We took all care not to make noise and disturb others. I felt we were not the culprit, the rector came checking for someone else who were making noise but landed coincidently in our room and to even her surprise we were celebrating! She asked me to write names of all who were making noise , but we were not making noise so I didn't give any name in writting"
No Madam, there were all decorations in the room when I entered and I feel it was all a planned celebration. They plan and break the rules. They should get a good punishment so that other girls learn to behave in a disciplined manner. They were making noise because of which I had to go to second floor and check what the matter was. Complained the rector.
Maam it's our last year so we wanted to make it memorable, we won't be together again like this. Hence we celebrated, we are sorry we broke the rule. But out intentions were not bad.. pleaded Sonali. If you complain about this to our parents they will punish us more severely. We are from good family background Maam. You can check our record maam we have been sincere and always followed rules. Our parents have high hope from us maam.
Maam it is our first time, we won't do this again. Please let us go this time. Please don't expel us, it will spoil our career. Our parents will be disheartened! Please Maam everybody said in chorus. The air was so dramatic people started crying.
Even Wardens have heart, Kulkarni Maam was touched by the scene, She said I forgive you this time, but I don't want any more complaints. Suddenly the air was filled with joy. Maam wished Shirin Happy Bday, Then said We don't have problem in you celebrating, only celebrate in the day time. Even I will join you. Ok. Everyone nodded and started moving out of the room. To my surprise my uncle and aunt also started moving out. Ohh is the admission done? I thought to MYSELF, great... So which room are you allocated? 402 in "Fourth hostel "said my cousin. We now headed to her room to check if everything was ok though I knew everything will be fine (For my uncle and aunts sake) and also cause I got to see the new hostel.

We started from the hostel. Me thinking to Myself will I ever get a chance to live those moments again which I just witnessed? I want to live one day as Nishi. I want to be with Sonali and Shirin, For one day I want to go to college with them.Will I get that chance?? Will life give me that chance? Will you like to be with me for one more day??
"Yes We will!!" whispered Sonali and shirin from both my sides in my ears. leaving my heart happy.
"Tumhe bhulne ki koshish karna phizul hai

Tumhari yaad bhi tumhari tarah ziddi hai

Isliye humne tumhari yadoo se ishq kar liya hai"

-This Was for my college, friends and everyone who was a part of my college life for making my college days so memorable.
I left the hostel campus with lost of questions which needed to be answered by MYSELF.
