Chapter-3 Duties and Meetings
I didn’t realize how and when I slept last night. I had an off whereas Maa had to go to work and Mahi college. So I decided to see Chinki, my bestfriend. Her family has been very helpful to us ever since we moved here, though we knew them even before that. Her parents take care of me and Mahi the same way they do for Chinki. She was my bestfriend since school days…she was that one person who never mocked at me for being the person I was and clearly wasn’t even jealous of my achievements. Whenever I achieved something her eyes showed all signs of pride and happiness.I went to her place and sat with uncle aunty and Chinki, and then the two of us went off for shopping. I had a convocation in college and wanted to buy myself a kurti or suit but on Chinki’s insistence I ended up buying a saree. After shopping, talking and eating our hearts out we retired to our places.
The next few days at the university were quite busy…my schedule was hectic. I hardly had time for myself..after being made the incharge for the Convocation prog. I had a lot of responsibilities on my shoulders. The preperations for convocation doubled the pressure and to manage with with classes and this was even more tough. A lot of famous journalists, educationists were to address the students and the Chief Guest was the CEO of Sarna Group of Industries, was supposed to be the youngest and successful business tycoons of India, also he was a pass out from our university itself.
The work load was so much that it resulted in me returning home late at night which maa never liked. 7’o clock was the deadline for me and Mahi to return home. Usually I would return home by 6 but these days it was around 9’o clock when I returned home and maa wouldn’t stop worrying and calling. Everything on the day of convocation was apt. From the decorations to all the arrangements everything was good. When the convocation had ended the Principal had congratulated and praised me and my team for our work. When I came home I told Maa and Mahi every detail of it, from the arrangements to guests,everything. I told them about Kunj Sarna and how influential and powerful his speech was. He had achieved a lot at a very young age and despite his achievements he was humble and easy going.
After this I retired to my bed, it was a tiring day for me after all.
