My graduation note – An ode to the death of a blissful era…

So I recently culminated over five years of my career that flew across in a jiffy. It was only then, I realized that it’s been over five years since I passed out of college as well. Scary thought it was, to step out of college and into the concrete jungle of conglomerates and wolves. The fresh minds were out to take over the world and sell ideas that would change the time to come. My graduation day still remains a vivid memory. The fun and frolic, the suave men and elegant women, ready to take on what life had to offer. On that note, let me share a small note that I had written for my dear friends who were graduating with me. Feels nostalgic as I read this 🙂 Godspeed mates!

You will not fear the terror of night, 

   nor the arrow that flies by day, 

   nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, 

   nor the plague that destroys at midday. 

   A thousand may fall at your side, 

   ten thousand at your right hand, 

   but it will not come near you. 

   Psalms 91: 5-7


With warm love, I address each one of you souls that helped me add three more years to my age, but in a life changing fashion. As we moved eight years into the second millennium, I began a race towards time, to perfect myself within three summers. To brace the entire world as not just another being. But a special one indeed.

To all the dear ones who helped me into molding myself into what i am today, a special THANK YOU from deep within. 

A pleasant breeze, would be the word I use to describe the last three years spent within four walls. The walls that taught me what life is all about, and the breeze, just had to pass on.

HttpServletRequest is not all what i learnt. I got the true insight into a being, a being created in God’s own image, a friend. I couldn’t just form Allan Maxi Andrews, without the criticism, suggestions, help and care hurled at me…

I, with great joy, appreciate it, cause without which, i wouldn’t be what i am today. 

A totally different person, I am, as we broke the batch of 2008-2011. Each one of you reading this, take a moment, to launch yourself back across time to see what you have been, and what you are now…..WOW

Its amazing how people change with time (for the good). 

My friends , the future holds great news……

Spear yourself into opportunities that fall at your feet. Clasp every moment of joy. Lend a hand to the ones in need. Rise above all, the sky is not the limit. You are people, with extreme potentials. Bring it out, and see what wonders you are capable of. I assure you , life is never a bed of roses, but look on the bright side. Always be happy with what you have, rather than fret about what you don’t… 

As we are made to part ways, i feel a void within me.

A void that cant be filled by all the money in the world…

A special THANK YOU again”
