Stories from the classroom

It was an emotional moment for the graduating batch of PESIT South campus as the farewell programme, organised by their juniors, made them nostalgic.

Sindhu, a student, says that she was very emotional as her four-year-old relationship with the college was coming to an end.

“I have been a very active student and have been involved in all the activities of the college, whether it was organising the fest of the college or the farewell for the seniors last year. I feel very sad that the time has come to bid adieu to the college. The juniors presented a very touching programme for us. We really had a lot of fun and since I was involved with the farewell last year, I know what goes into its making,” she says.

The juniors say that they tried their best to make the programme a special one
for their seniors.

“Organising the farewell was a real challenge for us as it had to relate to the outgoing batch. We were having our internal examinations and hardly had any time.

Yet, we tried our best to make it different. We prepared a small skit for them and tried to weave their stories in it. The story was written by us and revolved around a student who focussed only on academics and did not open himself to anything else. We took some pictures of the various events organised by our seniors last year and included it in the skit. Even the characters were based on them,” says Srikhar, a student.

The skit ‘Mock Rock’ was enjoyed by the outgoing batch and they appreciated the effort put in by their juniors.

Other cultural programmes like dance and music performances were also a part of the farewell.

Praneeth, a student, says that he was overwhelmed. “The skit prepared by the juniors was great and really touching. We also had a couple of music programmes and the head of each department and our teachers cut a cake. On one hand, we were happy as we were taking with us a lot of experience and on the other, we were sad as college life has ended,” he adds.
