My College Life - A poem

Phew...here it goes...My first post...am i tensed or what :)
Exactly after 22 years,4 months and 22 days, I decided to write a poem...
I dedicate this to all my friends who made my college life memorable and unforgettable..
This is my first ever poem,so bear through it..cheers..


I took my first step in a strange new land
with just a book in my hand
The place was teeming with people i never knew
i wondered how i would get my next four years through.

Once the "im ____" and "im from _____" was done
the party had already begun
Days rolled on,but dono when
i started realising that i never had this much fun.

Memories of graphics classes are many
all thanks to our sir Shulapani
Played cricket matches aplenty
winning 16 in a row still remains in GEC History.

We also used to play a game meant for 6
name of the game was 56
We used to play it 9 to 6
but that was back then in 2006.

Then there were the series exams and university
for which chits and bandages,came in more handy
When d results are announced finally
gals ask how much while boys ask how many??

Lab exams were another torture
as we didn know the diff b/w ammeter nd wattmeter
Taking the viva was like walking into a nazi chamber
where v have committed many a blunder.

Myriad 3.50 rs were puffed up at the apoopan's kada
next to wimbis where we usually had our vada
Around 4,we wait near the ATM darwaza
in anticipation of the gals from the Vimala.

Final year tour was funny
where we ran short of money
coz of our supervisor Mani's
love for Mcdowell Honey.

Though now in office with a code to review
its just the memories that i wanna brew
With nothing to do but a gum to chew
i realise now how fast my four years flew
