Memory of My Life- 2: 8 Years Back, went to VCSC for Demo Classes


8 years back on this day, I had started reading in a college. Actually, that is known as School outside Odisha, but in Odisha, we are considering it as college after 10th. So, after my 10th exam, my parents and some of my teachers planned to send me a residential college, Vinayak College of Science and Commerce to for the demo classes. After the 10th exam, at those days, we got at least 3 months, so within those 3 months, some residential colleges planned for the demo classes, so the students could get in touch with studies as well as know some about their next studies.

So, I went to the hostel on 7th April 2010 and from 8th April 2010, we had our classes. Previously, I hadn't stayed outside my home except our relative's house, but that time, I had to leave the home and stay with new friends. So, I was excited at that time and in those days, I was totally different from nowadays. So, when they asked me for the classes, I just asked them, "are they going to teach me about computers?" Because, until that day, I didn't have a single knowledge about computer and perhaps didn't see a computer from very close. So, I had planned before finishing the exam, to join a computer academy and must learn some about the computer. When my father said me that, they are going to teach us some basics of computers, I was in the 9th cloud and immediately put a yes for that.

So, everything had prepared as per the plan and that was my 1st time outside the home. That's why everyone had advised me about the hostel, college, class, etc. So, on the 7th April, me with my father and with a teacher arrived there to the college. When I reached there, it was the evening snacks time and after snacks, we had an evening prayer. After that, I went to my room. It was a 7 sharing room, where I got another 5 new friends who came to the hostel for the 1st time and one of them was staying in the hostel from his class 1. So, he had more experience than us. Fortunately, we made friends with the 2nd year students. 

It was the morning of 8th April 2010, we came out for a Puja at the temple inside the campus and after the Puja, we had attended the class which was a formal introduction class. The principal had given the formal introduction of teachers, but I just remembered only one youngest teacher's face, who was a former faculty member from KBRC, Bhubaneswar. Actually, I couldn't remember his name, but I remembered him as Nayak sir and till now, I'm calling him as Nayak sir. 

After that introduction round, we had our morning breakfast and attended 3 classes on that day. We were there for 2 months and everyone counting the days to go home from the beginning. On the 1st day, I was introduced to some other new friends and it was a great experience of my life. In those days, I didn't have much of interest in writings, so I had never noted those things in any diary of somewhere else. But on this day, I wished to write some of these experiences in a diary. 

So, this was the 1st experience in my +2 college, where I read for the next two years. But these days, taught me some new experiences as well as some good things in my life. I would love to share those in my future blogs.
