Memory of My Life- 5: Farewell to our Seniors

It was 20th April 2015, when we arranged the farewell party for our seniors at Townhall, Bhawanipatna. Previously, those two batches arranged the farewell party inside the college campus, but unfortunately, we couldn't get the permission to conduct it in college. So, we planned it outside the campus. 

On 19th April  2013, our seniors (2nd-year students) through a welcome party to us. But I couldn't manage to attend that due to some work at home. But the next day after 2 years, we planned the farewell party for them. 

There was a back paper exam on 22nd April so some of our friends couldn't join for the arrangement works. But other friends arranged everything from booking to inviting. I was there in the back-paper group, so I went there around 3 o'clock in the afternoon. But seniors came around 6.30 in the evening. Yes that was the unofficial last day in the college, but the exam was not over till then, so they had around 30 days in the college. 

Previously, the farewell was conducted after the exam, but some seniors couldn't come to the party since they had booked their tickets early. That's why we arranged the party earlier. Yes, all the seniors came to the party. So, the plan was successful.

When they arrived we welcome them and they put their palm impression on a board with their signature. Look how beautiful it's appearing. Till now, this board is stored inside our CSE department. When I went to college on 8th January, I got surprised to see this board inside the room. Yes, it's their memory and all their love stored on this board.

Boys were in the white shirt and black pant, girls were in sarees and all were looking beautiful. It was going to be another memorable day for them, so all were excited when they came to the party. 

But the teachers didn't come to the party, so they feel sad for that. We all made fun, they dance, share their love, feelings, stores with others. Some were happy with their new relationships and some felt bad for the heartbroken. After all, we did lots of fun. And my work was to capture every moment on that day. So, when we all see those pictures, we could feel those days, those enjoyments, those small quarrels, those raggings, everything with them.

The stage was there for them, for us to celebrate every moment of that day. This is such a day, which comes only once in life. Yes, you might attend some other farewell parties, but couldn't attend the same party with the same friends again. So we did all those things which we could do to make that day memorable for them, for us.

And all the fun suddenly brought a sad among all of them, when the final goodbye time came. But, nobody cried on that day. Since all the same feelings but all tried to entertain others. Yes, some girls cried, but we managed to overcome that part. Finally, the party was over. And as always, we clicked the group photo. In that group photo, we all framed in. On that day, we all are friends. But I was not there in the frame since I was capturing the photo.
