A friendly recall of VEC Days (1997-98)
Today while travelling to work and while I was near Rajakilpakkam bus stand, I had an opportunity to wait near the college bus of Sathiyabama University. Just some how, my mind jumped back to about eight to nine years back to those VEC days when we were staying first near Virudhampet and then subsequently at Gandhi Nagar Seventh Main Road (near Don Bosco) and commuting to college either from Silk Mill Bus stop or RoundTana.
The time wheel spins so fast waiting for none as we discussed sometime back here. The green college days where you have the complete freedom and assumes responsible behavior learning into a professional is always great to cherish. You get the best of friends over here. I also fondly recall the lyrics of the song "Mustafa Mustafa" from Kadhal Desam which says the departure from college days (farewell party) is only in tears and also there is one more line which says the college is truly heaven on earth. I am quoting these lines here:
"kalloori mandhaan engal vaedandhaangal"
"kalloori saalai engal koadaikkaanal"
kalvi payilum kaalam varaiyil thullith thiriyum engal vizhiyil
kanneeraik kandadhillai thenral saatchi
nanban pirindhu oor thirumbum naalil mattumdhaan neer arumbum
kanneerildhaane engal farewell party
I think the poet who has written this song has really taken great pains to compose these lyrics to bring out the emotions.
