Lofty Bunks, In Lane Of Memory
Another new morning of summers, a day in college started with our first lecture at 10 am, students were scattered everywhere in the campus like bees hunting for honey. For me it was the most exciting day as I drove to college first time by car.
Another new morning of summers, a day in college started with our first lecture at 10 am, students were scattered everywhere in the campus like bees hunting for honey. For me it was the most exciting day as I drove to college first time by car. All of my friends were eager and forced me to have a ride around the campus, but that was certainly not enough to satisfy our inner voracity to fly like free birds, to break some rules and to turn rebellion.
Bunking was planned just by looking at each other’s eyes and steering was rolled towards Fatehsagar Lake where soul of almost every young heart in Udaipur gets peace. We sat under one of those centuries old royal shed (chatri).
Friends, Fatehsagar, Car, Music, Peace and a start of a perfect bunk indeed.
Reasons of bunking may be numerous. But one attribute is generic i.e. Break from routinely part of life. It is the times when one can explore his/her own self. Bunking is really worthy sometimes when mind fails to learn “grip of social rules and demands”. After all sometimes we need JUST OUR OWN TIME, OWN LIFE ON OUR TERMS!!!
These outbreaks are lifelong memory for many when they just followed their hearts.
Let’s take a ride on wings of their memories.
Alvin S Joseph, 24year, MBA student shares, Bunking was like playing hide and seek with everyone around me and during this dodging act my favorite places were Rani Road, Gulab Bagh , Badi ki Pal and Fateh Sagar. Every memory related to bunking in school days is memorable, but once very capricious incident happened.
I was at Dudh talai with my pals, enjoying BHUTTA and suddenly our school teacher spotted us. But the twist in the tale is neither of us tried to escape, instead I offered him our BHUTTA to eat with us, and for our great surprise he AGREED.
Jai Tak, now in infrastructure business shares, playing Football was my passion in teens. And to actualize my ardor I used to bunk and head towards my friend’s place, where we had a companion. Those were wonderful thrilling days, just playing whole day without any worry in head. I really miss those days.
Nikhil Jain, Researcher in IBM, says our favorite place for bunking was CTAE cricket ground .With my friends, I have scored many runs while bunk. Last weekend when I visited Udaipur I found that nowadays girls and boys are equally bunking classes.
Varun Jain, software Engineer, shared a riveting incident when he bunked in his college days. He says it was very charming day, it had already rained and I was in no mood to listen boring lectures, It was then, I skipped classes and went out for a date with my girlfriend at some restaurant at Sukher side. And then something out of the blue happened!!
My cousin arrived there. But he was accompanied with his girlfriend, so I was saved (actually we both). It is one of the exciting incidents in my life.
Bunking is a by product of mood. It can actually accord one’s desires which remained unfulfilled for a long time. May it be peace, convivial with friends, outing with girlfriend, or space when you are just you with your thoughts. These people yearn those days, because they did whatever they wished at that moment, they were free, not in constraints of world around them.
But it needs courage to be a rebel. They did it, I did it, you did it too??
