Generally most of the people get only one ‘FIRST DAY OF COLLEGE’. But I am happy that I am blessed and got two ‘FIRST DAY OF COLLEGE’, where one was in the past during my Under Graduation and the other just passed by a week ago.
I can’t say that ‘My first day at SCIT’ went on wonderful, but it didn’t go bad as well. As a matter of fact it went quite lonely. I had reached Pune on 5th Jun 2014 around 11.00AM. The journey was so tiring as the train was delayed by 4 hours. After reaching Pune, I took a bus and reached the SCIT campus at around 12.30PM. During this journey from Pune railway station to SCIT, I had done a lot of weight lifting as I had come to Pune alone and my luggage was so heavy. After reaching the SCIT campus, the weight lifting continued till I found one of the coordinators and few of the SCIT joiners. Then I had completed my registration and the coordinator asked us to attend the session which was commenced in the assembly hall. But I was exhausted to an extent where anyone who observes me will easily make out by looking at my shirt which was wet with sweat. I requested the coordinator saying that I will first get rid of my luggage by going to the hostel and then come back. She humbly accepted and I immediately left for the hostel and this time I took an auto from SCIT to the Hostel. There near the hostel gate the security guard asked to enter my details in a book and while entering my details drops of sweat fell on the book. The guard gave me an excused laugh. Later I met the warden for my room keys. The first sentence the warden said immediately after looking at me was that ‘Someone fetch him a glass of water’. After drinking a glass of water I filled the form and went to the room. Even here I had to continue weight lifting till I reached second floor and finally got rid of my luggage. Then finally I got fresh by having a shower and went back to the SCIT at 12.45PM.
I got into the assembly hall where the program was progressing and waited keenly for lunch time. Obviously I didn’t follow that session and finally the lunch time arrived. As I had no idea about the dinning hall, I followed my batchmates and finally when I reached the dining hall I realized that I ended up in a queue which was moving like ants. I waited patiently in the queue and finally had a stomach full of lunch which made me feel back lively.
In the afternoon session there was a group activity and here I started introducing with my batchmates. Doing so befriended me. After the session, I left for the hostel and played cricket and football and later had my dinner and finally I met my roommates at around 11.00PM. My auspicious First day at SCIT college came to an end with complete package of experience.
But as the days continued I made lot of friends and started enjoying every moment till date like a saying ‘The older the wine gets the better it is’ which relates like as the days passed my enjoyment and attachment to the SCIT increased.
All the best Bonu. Hope you would enjoy a lot in the coming days@SCIT.
