Student life is one of the most cherished moments in everyone’s life. Taking out time and meeting friends become hard after college ends and as one starts working, it gets close to impossible to regularly catch up with friends.

It evokes emotions far beyond words. There is the uncertainty of how others look… how you look for others… do you remember them and they you.

How life has treated each one of us. It is easy for one to remember the five professors who taught but for them thousands of students in these 34 years is big task. Today I know that each one of us has fared well in life. Our teachers can rest assured that they taught well to turn us into good human beings.”

“It was an emotional moment to see lecturers and students on one dais and that, too, after 34 years. I was in awe of all lecturers, how they remembered almost every student’s face. And I could see on all my friends’ faces child-like happiness,” Naga Rani, BA.

It’s surprising how each one enjoyed college days and loved their lecturers and cherished all those years they spent at the college. It’s been 34 years, but we feel fresh as if it happened yesterday.

True, lecturers may not remember all the students, but they enhanced our personality and life too. We respected, loved and adored them for their personality. We felt as if it was only yesterday that we studied here. Some of us are grannies, the lecturers retired, but still feel their youthful, energetic, inspiring talk. We felt at home,” says, Kalyani Rachala, B Com Lecturers who were awestruck after meeting their students have mixed feelings; some were happy others were emotional and proud of seeing their alumni succeed in life.
