Disclaimer: This is my personal view about things, don’t take it too personally!
I am sitting here tonight, a little sentimental and gushy, reflecting on the past five years of my life, and I am amazed at how much it changed. When I see my class-fellows giving such-and-such tests for such-and-such universities, I feel a rush of nostalgia sweeping over me.
Everything is going to end soon, and this “soon” is coming very fast!
For me, my class is something marvelous, divine, impressive, wonderful, out of the world (and all other synonyms :P) , with everyone being a precise and exceptional component of the class. Let me have the pleasure of introducing you to my class-fellows:
In my class, by the grace of God, everyone is intelligent, but even among the genius minded people there are some exceptionally brilliant people who emerge with the best possible results in everything they indulge into; Armaghan-e-Rehman, Soban Arif Maan and Aleesha Kainat fall in this category (see, I said that our class is full of whiz kids!)
There are some people in the class, who are always in the mood of enjoyment and exhilaration. These people are the core elements of the class; cracking jokes at the most unexpected and serious moments and making everyone laugh so hard that they are falling off their seats. Ayesha Zubair, Kisha Gill and Ammar Mehmood (as his “sober” talks are funnier than the punch-lines themselves) are one of them.
The aptitude of splendidly inimitable art is not possessed by many. In our class, Haseeb Jamil was blessed with that talent along with Fareeha Shahid and Rushba Tariq.
Some people are blessed with keen insight of matters, those who possess a third eye for every occurence and are keen to put across their expert views regarding every situation. They are (so-called boring) people who- like me – do blogging who include:
Hayder Sarfraz; www.aspiringwriter2010.blogspot.com,
Armaghan-e-Rehman Mansoor; www.expressingpakistan.wordpress.com ,
Shahzaib Bajwa; www.justanothercommonblog.wordpress.com
Nauman Hafeez; www.brainponder.wordpress.com
And then there are these marvelous people who are always up-to-date with the latest music and movies, no matter what happens you’ll find every piece of info you need on hi-tech news from them. Quratulain Iqbal, Sunayna Amatu Rab En Nasir (phew, long name!) and Shumail Mohyudin are among them.
There are people who strongly believe in freedom of expression and they love to prove that they are right, no matter what! They can speak on any topic for hours with necessary justification, reasoning and many speculations on the way. Hamza Talat (with his trademark sentence, “ho jaye ga!”) fall in this catagory!
There are people who have the passion to travel the world! They want to explore and discover. They have their own principles and can win any argument on the basis of logic and explanation. Sobhan Arif Maan falls in this category.
Yet there are people quite undaunted by the comings and goings. Those who can easily fall asleep during the lecture and yet get grand scores, my dear friend Aabia Islam and Hira Latif fall in this category!
There are people who act mysteriously and seem calmed in almost every situation, namely; Faakeha Islam, Hussnain Cheema, Raza-ur-Rehman, Zafar-ul-Iman and Adil Raza Chaudry (who is also a great actor!)
I’m sure many would disagree with my style of categorizing my class-fellows like this, but the thing here is, that no matter which university I go to, no matter which place or what time, these particular characteristics will remind me only of these people who made these years so wonderful and worth remembering! Whenever there’s silence I’ll remember all those free periods during which we make enough noise to make anyone go mad. Whenever I’ll remember DMC, I’ll remember each and every one as the colours which made the overall picture so spectacular that there are no words to describe it!
I would thank everyone for all those memories and I apologize if, in the course of enlightening my soul with education, I offended them in any way!
This blog is dedicated to the whole of my class, which is indeed the Best Class ever. May Allah Almighty bless us all (Ameen)
So go ahead and live your life and become what you want to be,
But don’t forget the days you spent, when you were young at school with me!
