Just leaning back to my comfortable chair in my office to relax my eyes and to stretch my spine, out of nowhere the image of my college came to my mind. Why these will-o-wisps graze my memory I do not know. My eyes were drawn to the date on the news page open in my browser. The third anniversary of leaving college behind has just passed by unnoticed. Yes the day I left my college after completing my Engineering. I have a fair recollection of the day. The feeling was not really good.
That morning, the same station and the same platform where I had boarded countless trains to travel to my home town and was many a times happy about it, I was feeling drained. Four years had just passed by and a chapter in my life is closed. I was a little scared. To come out to the real world. The world inside the hostel, the college was safe. I am exposed now, to the real world.
A sharp ping from my system indicated that the deployment was over. It bought me back. To my workstation. Back to reality. Back to the future. With I smile I realized…. Three long years have passed by.
