“He’s legend”, they say. “This place will never be the same without him.” How weird it is! How much can a person belong to a place and how much that place and the people there can belong to someone. In college there are just three years, these three years decide if
the person is going to be a legend there or someone who would just leave the college without some of the teachers not even knowing his name. And seeing in a way, life is pretty much similar. You can actually leave the stage of life as characters whose parts are often forgotten and whose names are often left out or you can play your part in such a way that when curtains go down, applause goes on and people carry your character in their hearts as they go out. The newcomers will aim to become the next ‘you’. You can be yourself and live life as if there’s no tomorrow, no money, no people judging you or you can live someone else’s life, somebody else’s dreams. And one more thing, my mother always tells me how our generation doesn’t know what joy someone gets in helping others and how living for oneself is selfish. But believe me, that’s not completely true.
“Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.”
