एक बाजी जीते तो मशहूर हो गए,
तुम्हारी हंसी में हँसे तो ज़िन्दगी के गम दूर हो गए,
तेरे जैसे दोस्त की बदोलत मेरे दोस्त,
हम कांच से कोहिनूर हो गए!
1 July 2000, Yes This was the day when I entered the portals of my Alma mater “MILITARY SCHOOL BANGALORE”. And since then there was no looking back. There were many experiences and almost an innumerable things to learn from them. The main purpose of writing this post is to dedicate a poem to all the georgians, my younger brothers as well as my elder brothers and to all of them who have become fathers or grandpas, this is for all those who even have had the taste of this paramount institution. I would love to share my feelings with all of you। this poem was written on 4th of may 2006।when i was in a very sad mood thinking about my previous years spent in this temple and only year which was left.
So here is the poem:
MY DEAR GEORGIANS,
NINJAS, RAMBOS, SCORPIANS AND TAGORIANS
COME ON HAIL WITH ME,
FOR OUR ALMA MATAR,
LET’S HAVE SOME CHEERS
TO REMEMBER THOSE SEVEN YEARS
FIRST CHEER FOR OUR FIRST YEAR,
WHEN WE ENTERED THE SCHOOL,
WITH SOME EXICTEMENT AND A BIT OF FEAR.
NEXT CHEER FOR THE SECOND YEAR,
WE WERE IN SEVENTH,
WHEN FRIENDS CAME MORE CLOSER AND NEAR.
THIRD CHEER FOR THE COMMING YEAR,
WHEN YOU TAUGHT ME,
SOME OF THE BEST THINGS MY DEAR.
NEXT CHEER FOR THE FOURTH YEAR,
WHICH BROUGHT SOME MATURITY,
AND SERIOUSNESS VERY NEAR.
FIFTH CHEER FOR THE TENTH BOARDS,
STUDY, STUDY, STUDY,
AND HAVE A NICE SCORE.
NEXT CHEER FOR SIXTH YEAR,
TIME TO THINK OF A CAREER,
AND MAKE THE PURPOSE OF LIFE VERY CLEAR.
NEXT CHEER FOR LAST YEAR,
TIME TO LOOK BACK,
AND SHED TEARS.
WITH THIS I BID ADIEU MY DEAR.
MY DEAR ALMA MATAR,BEHEAD ME,
IF I FORGET THEE,
BECAUSE, YOU MOULDED ME,
FROM A CHILD OF TWELVE,
INTO A SHINING JEWEL,
TO SERVE THE NATION,
WITH MY FULL HEART AND DEVOTION.
MY MOTHER,MY ALMA MATER,
I THANK YOU,
WITH THE DEEPEST CORE OF MY HEART,
BUT, IT WOULD SERVE ONLY A PART.
I left the institution on 10 may 2007 after spending seven of the best and most beautiful years of my life, but all the memories are still fresh, the fun we had with our friends, and every thing is preseverd in the memory and will be like this for a long time.
With this I give a finishing note to my first post about my memories associated with the school but remember, the talk will go on and will be continued but before that, let me know about your views about this one. So please be free to comment on it. With this let me say bye. But don’t worry, I will be back very soon………….
