Farewell Social, 2016
"Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending." or so said H.W.Longfellow.
TISS Guwahati Farewell Social 2016
Wednesday, May 4th, 12-5pm
Even if you know what’s coming, you’re never prepared for how it feels.
And that is really what all of us will be going through now. Maybe, you have been mentally preparing yourself to walk away from all those things that you had learnt to make a part of your routine, but it is not till we set the wheels to motion that you really understand the gravity of the situation.
And it hits you.
You have to say goodbye to all these people who helped shape you into who you are today, and you cannot pretend that you can live through TISS and not change at all.
Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
but now you have to worry about placements, and real life
And you realize some things
You may actually never meet some of these people ever again in your life, and whether or not they were good, there will be memories and so many of them.
"I wish I could turn back time, I wish I never had to see the look in your eyes..."
So this is the end...
"Hold your breath and count to ten. Feel the Earth move and then, hear my heart burst again, cause this is the end."
But then it might not be...
It started out as a feeling which then grew into a hope. which then grew into a quiet thought which then grew into a quiet word; and then that word grew louder and louder till it was a battle cry, you'll come back when they call you, there's no need to say goodbye.
So if you're asking me I want you to know...
When my time comes forget the wrong that I've done, help me leave behind some reasons to be missed; and don't resent me, when you're feeling empty, keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest, leave out all the rest.
Time passes by, direction unknown, You've left us now, but we're not alone...
Before you know it your cup's overflown, you measure no one that I've ever known, and its quite alright, and goodbye for now. Just look up to the stars and believe who you are cause its quite alright, and so long goodbye.
We wish you a wonderful journey ahead, the journey called life.
We will learn from Amartya Sen and measure success in more than just banknotes, and you will be remembered for all the little things that count.
Wishing you luck,
with much love,
The TISS Guwahati family.
