A Friend,An Achiever

This post is on a friend and how the saying “it is never over till it is over” is so true.
Speaking of adages,the photo takes it a step further from the very famous one we use,doesn’t it?!

Let’s not digress!
Ten days ago IIM Indore released the list of successful candidates who aced the interviews for Integrated Programme In Management.For the unacquainted,IPM is a new course offered at IIM-I only,where 124 of the countries brightest students are admitted each year after their +2 boards and come out with an MBA degree after 5 years.
My friend,as it happened,did not make it.She got a status of waiting list-15.Not many people would hope of still making the cut,especially when you are talking about an IIM.Neither did she.All hell broke loose.To say that she was devastated would probably be an understatement,and crybaby that she is,we had a tough time keeping her away from the tissue paper boxes!
Then again,when you come that close to living a dream,you can’t help but be devastated.

Cut to today,and she got a call in the morning that allowed her to jump up to the 99th cloud,don’t you worry about the 9th!
Yes,all hell’s broken loose again,she has made it!
Though there’s sadness that a friend would leave us,the moment we remember what she has achieved,all sadness goes for a hike up Mt.Everest!
Well done Eva !
Darned IIM grad,here’s wishing you an excellent 5 years!
Here’s a toast raised from all the friends you are leaving back in KIIT.
We hardly know each other for a month,and still get along so well.God knows where it would have ended if you had stayed back with us for four years!

  2. EVA my sister in KIIT…the most charming and understanding girl I met here..:) her room (3A-68) has been our hangout place since the time we met..a strange bond of love,friendship and sisterhood developed between us..:) mornings when I over slept,she religiously woke me up(one reason why am never late to college..) Late night masti,games of Japanese whisper..hot gossips(about guys and gals 😉 )..eating each and every meal together…I’m gonna miss it all…but here I must mention (even though I don’t want you to leave) Eva you have got a bright future ahead..life has to move on..and life is short too..we will meet soon and always stay connected..:) our PASE will always remain so..all plans of meeting during pujas, night stay at your place will all happen..don’t you worry..:) I can’t possibly end without mentioning how caring you are..one reason why none of us ever had to visit KIIMS is EVA..she ensured we had healthy food..(bananas,apples and custard apples) I’ll never forget the way she used to make me eat up the entire salad.. she ensured all our windows are closed so that none of us are prone to mosquito bites(malaria dengue being common in BBSR) Our treats..our pranks..teasing each other whenever we are on the phone(with mom and dad..;) ) solving small misunderstandings..will miss you EVA in every step of hostel life..Life in QC2 wouldn’t have been so much fun without you..Racing down the corridors,clicking innumerable pics for memories,your hunting down newspaper every single day..;) your Cambridge dictionary and your famous diary..will miss it all..:’) I can just go on and on..however I stop here..Here’s wishing you all the very best in life..remember us all(your mom,dad,sis,husband,golu and golu’s step father 🙂 ) we’ll miss you but promise to keep connected..FRIENDS FOREVER..:) and we’ll definitely meet during pujas..:D
    and never ever forget our PASE..:) LOVE you my sis..<3<3

        The way you always understood my problems , stood by me in every single thing , I found my soul sister in you. Memories could never have been dearer and I can never find someone sweeter. Yes , I will indeed miss you and all the moments spent together , A LOT.

      Love you.
