The afternoon was special. As the summer sun hovered in the sky, with the strike of 3, the boys hostel started to smell of variety of deodorants. While the hustle bustle in the boys hostel increased, even the girls hostel wasn’t so quiet. Ladies made their way in and out of the common room with hair and makeup properly done.They made their way to the Multi Purpose Hall for the very last time as Fifth Years, all clad in beautiful shimmering saris and jet black suits, happy, excited and nostalgic. These were the same stairs that they had climbed when they were the First years, when they participated in the Formal Introduction. They enjoyed the Freshers’ Party, and then they grooved in the Dance Evening. It was all the same, even then they were geared up for a new beginning, even now a new life awaits them. Even then they had left their family, even now they were leaving the family. It was indeed the same except the truth that then their faces were adorned with a smile. Now, it was accompanied by moist eyes.
The Farewell Party was conducted in the Army Institute of Law, Mohali on May 1st, 2018, to bid adieu to the super seniors- 5th Year.
The MPH was decorated with fragrant roses and shimmering lights. The theme was “The Film Farewell Awards” and the evening was celebrated in a “filmy andaaz.”
The show started as they walked in elegantly. Soon the faculty of AIL and the lovely wardens would join them. Then began the dance performances and duet and group songs that there 4th year prepared by putting in tons of efforts day and night. A couple dance by the 4th Year added Romance to the fun filled atmosphere. he event was wound up with a band performance by ‘The Fourth Quartet’.
The juniors put up a good show to make it a memorable time.
As every Farewell holds, the senior were felicitated with awards and titles. Mr. Tavish Gurung was given the title of “Best Actor” and Ms. Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia was announced as the “Best Actress”. Mr. Parth Chopra was declared as the “Khiladiyon ka Khiladi”, Ms. Vedika Sood became “Ms. Sugar” and Ms. Puja Kapoor was announced as“Ms. Perfect”. Ms. Racy G. Raju was announced as “Best Transformation”.
Ms. Tanisha Nithani was given the title of “Ms. Pataka” while Ms. Radhika Rathore and Ms. Thoibi Devi managed to have eyes cast on them, courtesy their traditional outfits which were very adorable.
The function in the Hall was followed by the Dance party in the Basement. Once more the neon lights made it to the sky and the hooting and merriment stole the breath away. Looking at all of them drenched with sweat but still dancing on the dance floor on some very hit Punjabi and Bollywood beats, was both hilarious and mesmerizing to look at.
The show was a visual treat, and it goes without saying, it created some very unfading memories. These imperishable moments will stay anew in the hearts forever. Because incidents fade, memories don’t.
