An Open Letter to IMT-Ghaziabad
As I still struggle to maintain fortitude and patience in the face of trials, a letter like this should be the last thing on my mind. But it’s been a promise long due and sooner or later, it should be through.
“It didn’t go the way I wanted it, it went a better way”- unknown
I am really going to miss you.
It’s time for us to part ways. (Sniff). And from here on, our paths may never cross again. Although I asked for this, I may never be the same again. But hey, those two years you gave me may last a lifetime.
You were worth it
For me, you have been the dream come true. In your quirky and eccentric architecture, I have seen myself grow into an adult. In your porches, I have experienced the best kind of solitude. I have seen you brimming with possibilities and opportunities. You have nurtured the most enriching ideas and taught me life-altering realisations.
We were meant to be together.
I had my bags packed for Bhuvaneshwar but you never let me go. You were meant to happen and I am glad I would join the ranks of your esteemed leaders sooner or later. The journey has been amazing my friend, unforgettable in every sense.
I’ve never experienced a college-turned-home like you.
Hey, I may have some grievances and complaints about you, I may have not been part of your cult, I may have cursed you at times, but honestly, I have never seen you getting angry about it. You have been the nicest place to me and you have never let the warmth go away.
What a dear and dependable friend you have been!
I have experienced your selflessness, the wisdom you enclose and your healing powers when I felt let down. Even today, it’s your thought that lets my faith stay. You have been a healer, a motivator and the best promoter of my interests.
By the way thanks for teaching me a lot of lessons.
My god, where to begin? You have been generous in so many ways. You have made me a better and competent human being. You have made me a compassionate and balanced guy. You have opened my horizons and given me a lot of perspectives. Oh and the patience you taught me is unparalleled, just like belief, faith, friendship and love that I enjoyed in your grace.
IT’S TIME NOW TO PASS THE TORCH. TIME TO SAY GOODBYE
Okay, my friend, this is it. It’s just next 2 and half months and then you’ll change the life of others like you changed mine. Be nice to them and I am sure they will soon realize that they are fortunate to be a part of you.
