A WALK TO REMEMBER.. September 29, 2006

Posted by Karan in IIIT centric.

Evenings in the campus are convivial. Strolling around at this time, one finds that it’s the most common activity- taking a walk! Be it friends, couples, professors or individuals, a tread around the campus is something which everyone likes and undertakes quite often. The library road, the smokers point- they are all hot walking spots!

People walk for different reasons. It could just act as a stress buster. Or it could be the means to have a nice and emotional talk with your pal. Walking in a group could be a lot of fun, with laughter and frolic filling the air. For a socialite, it’s a nice way to catch up with different people in the environs of the college. It could also just be a way to reach your labs and library! Whatever various reasons are for walking, there is no denying the fact that the campus seems to be buzzing in the evenings primarily because of the number of people choosing to move around on foot.

For me, these walks are extremely special. Whenever I am down and out and the world seems to be the most cruel place to live on, I just put on my shoes and move out of the hostel. Those lonely appointments with myself is something I consider very important. I have always believed that spending time alone with oneself (I mean with nothing to do, but think … or maybe hog :D) is very important. These walks give me the best opportunities, to sit back (not literally) and analyze myself, to spend time with my own self, to be able to face myself. (I hope it all makes sense to you!!) Invariably, when I am in a fix, I find a solution or answer to my dilemma during these walks. A whiff of natural air always freshens me up. A walk is also a platform to have a nice and long talk with your close friends (And this is something which really makes me happy 🙂). A lot of my friends have become closer to me during such walks. I especially recollect with fondness the strolls I have had with Himank, Aditya, PK, Abhijeet, Harshita etc. And of course, we friends freak out a lot together during such walks. A walk after dinner is when we guys get to meet up and really have a ball.

Happy walking!

A walk doesn’t need time barriers…i had walks b/w 2 and 4 in the morning!!!
For me, …my usual walk partner is yasovardhan….my walks with him are very very informative…i extract lot of info out of him 😀

the helipad area behind our campus is the best place to walk acc to me…the only sad thing about these morning walks is that they make ppl DAMN hungry

12. Aditya - October 3, 2006

apt description of campus walks fondly termed as ’rounds’…tho i hardly roam alone in the campus…i find them the best means of sharing joys and sorrows wih ur close frens..moving out in big numbers is certainly loads of fun….

13. pankajsaini - October 4, 2006

if u really want to have lonely appointments wid urself…then go out of the hostels at 2 Am and it’s then that u will find what a beauty our campus beholds…..fresh air sprouts fresh thoughts, discarding and dismantling the evil ones….and yeah it’s always gus to spend time wid urself…….a gud theme to write on…..
