Those College days…Nostalgia and a Reunion!...


Well, this exactly is not the name of a street as it sounds, but a gang of Nine Notorious Smart n Active girls, who'd 'Rocked' the college during the early 90s ;)

Each letter denotes the name of a girl..

And here goes a quick introduction to JAMBASSAR!..

Obviously we had fun and enjoyment, on and off Campus.

Jokes apart we 'did' get into serious studies at 'crucial times', as well :), and also were known for our great ‘nerve’ to shout out at those Guys who always kept their ‘nicks’, secret :)..
In this aspect the girls of ‘Jambassar’ had been the regular bait of their competetive Boys’ gang, which was none other than Kiran John and his friends themselves !!
As a token of their appreciation we were always welcomed by a loud ‘coo’ whenever we staged a ‘decent’ programme like 'The Kitchen Orchestra'(sworn the fact, indeed a creative and a novel programme meant ‘only’ for entertainment :D) or our bags(holding less or no books) hanging down from the branches of those gigantic trees of the campus or at least our nicks shouted back (twice as loud as ours) by each of them..

Memories flooding back, remembering 'em all and smiling; so nostalgic, are mingled with that slight pain when I realise those crazy times we had together are never going to bounce back..

Fifteen years to forward, the naughty girls of the gang are metamorphosed to responsible family women, most of them employed, polished and matured!(hopefully- at least, a big YES! Here.. :D)

Holding a blog is no joke.

The hard and sincere work behind collecting data, uploading, editing, publishing, updating and the presentation of each and every post are far more time-consuming than a reader here can guess.
We should indeed realise the painstaking effort, Kiran has taken up in these recent months to bring back the nostalgic feeling in everyone of us..
The wonderful idea of a get together surely deserves a special and a louder applause..

The healthy relationship with the professors, the fun times with friends, the beautiful campus, those sentimental times of parting…each memory is special…

Let us all meet, coz it’s time for celebration… to rekindle those memories of past togetherness..

Looking forward, with much pleasure, to meeting you all in the same old campus, on December 28th 2008 for the CMS 85-95 's meet!

lovely effort! really! its one thing to keep in touch with a couple of people here and there but quite another to reach out to everyone and organize an event. I hope this blog brings more together.

And yes, I remember this JAMBASSAR Phase. Bharathy (sis of mine) used to scrawl it on her notebooks all the time!

Bharathy said...

I don't remember of having a notebook those times :)
Never knew my sister got to see those scribblings as well :)(hope she hasn't seen anything more) ;) :)

Manesh said...

You made my day Kiran... seeing those photos in blog... for some minutes I forgot that I was in office working and I felt that I was in CMS campus roaming around... thanks to JAMBASSAR for sending them.
